Villa Esmeralda offers panoramic views over two golf courses, distant mountains and the sea. Set in its own beautifully maintained garden with private pool, and the exclusive Sotogrande Estate, the villa is in the heart of the Costa del Sol's best golfing area (in easy range of Valderrama, Almenara, Alcadaisa, La Canada, La Reserva, Sotogrande and San Roque).

With a spacious open plan living area, including formal dining area, and 4 air-conditioned double / twin bedrooms, three bathrooms and cloakroom, as well as a fully fitted air-conditioned modern kitchen, and utility room, the villa offers everything a family could ask for. (There is also a child's bedroom / dressing room with double sofa-bed and folding cot, adjacent to the master bedroom).

A large shaded terrace provides a pleasant sitting and eating area overlooking the large, attractive garden and pool. Comfortable sun beds provide for perfect relaxation.

Away from the pool, there is plenty to see and do in the area. Tarifa, Cadiz, Jimenez de la Frontera and the White Towns, Ronda and Gibraltar all provide interesting day trips. (To do them justice, Cordoba, Seville and Granada need an overnight stay.) There are good restaurants and bars within a short drive, and tennis, horse riding and a spa nearby, as well as plenty of beaches, and three water parks less than an hour away.

Nearby shopping centres Pueblo Nuevo and Puerto Sotogrande offer banks, coffee shops, specialist wine shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants, as well as an interesting Sunday market selling mainly craft items and clothes. (Pueblo Nuevo offers restaurants with slightly more down to earth prices, while the port provides great views, for which you pay a premium.)

Sotogrande Alto

Villa Esmeralda is great for a restful holiday with friends, or a family holiday with children, with interesting activities for children and adults within easy driving distances.

The stunning south coast province of Andalucia includes the beaches and tourist hot spots of the Costa del Sol, wild rocky coasts, surfing beaches and inland nature reserves, as well as the magnificent historic cities of Malaga, Granada, Seville, Cordoba and Cadiz. You can visit Roman and Moorish sites, eat amazing food, ogle luxury yachts and enjoy great beaches and golf courses, all in a day! You can even do several at the same time, at one of the many pop-up beach restaurant / beach clubs in the area.

Gibraltar is just thirty minutes drive. (Park the car in La Linea, walk across the border and take a taxi into town. You can take a cable car to the top of the rock and see southern Spain spread out below, tour the tunnels prepared during various wars, see the apes, buy duty free spirits for your stay, then eat in a beach side bar in La Linea on the way home.) Day trips to Africa are also possible from La Linea and Tarifa.
