Sotogrande is the luxury resort estate on the Mediterranean coast 20 minutes from Gibraltar and an hour and a half from Malaga.
Except Easter, July and August the estate is a very quiet and peaceful place to relax.

There are local supermarkets, the nearest town is Estepona to the east and La Linea to the west. A car is essential.
Accommodation available ranges from luxury hotels, through villas in their own grounds with their own swimming pools, to country and beach apartments with communal pools. From some of the beach apartments there are breathtaking views of the Straits of Gibraltar, particularly beautiful at sunset in winter months.
