For many, Sotogrande is the best of the Costa del Sol, offering the beautiful weather and scenery, sea views and multiple sports and leisure activities this region is known for, but within a safe, family-orientated environment.
Sotogrande, made for families
One of the original lifestyle resorts, Sotogrande is also characterised by space, with lots of greenery and nature, as well as the fact that it has been laid out according to a coherent masterplan. In practice, this translates into spacious residential areas with private accesses, excellent security and peaceful, broad leafy streets with little passing traffic. It’s the kind of environment just made for families; complete with cycling paths and space for children to walk.
A short distance from their homes they will find tennis and padel clubs, sandy beaches with impressive views, as well as a lively yacht club, the Real Club Marítimo de Sotogrande full of coaching facilities and competitions for youngsters who want to try their hand at sailing. Qualified staff guide the younger yachtsmen and women during the process, showing them how to enjoy the sea in a safe and responsible manner. The same is true of the equestrian centre, and if you reach a certain level there is always the chance to join one of the polo teams Sotogrande is famous for.
A wonderful living environment
Life here is punctuated by space, large gardens, great views and lots of surrounding nature, not to mention some of the most legendary golf courses in Europe and a myriad of sports and leisure facilities. Radiating outwards from Sotogrande are farmland, pastures and open countryside where hiking trails await. It’s a natural, healthy environment for children to grow up in, part of an international community that embraces this way of life.
Parents have the peace of mind that this is a safe and invigorating environment for their children that offers a lot of different character-building experiences, as well as being home to the Sotogrande International School, one of the finest private colleges in Spain. It offers an advanced, internationally orientated curriculum that focuses on academics, sport and personal development, preparing children from ages three to university entrance for life and career.
Sotogrande has a long tradition of creating lasting memories, especially during its joyous summer season, so it’s not surprising that those who’ve grown up or spent holidays here almost always return for more.priv
