Villa in Andalucía on a Golf Course - Villa Sotogrande
Description from the manager
What can be better than a beautiful Andalucia Spain villa amidst a small forest of cork trees, right on the famous golf course of Sotogrande?! In addition, this wonderful villa for rent in Spain is near a long, sandy beach and close to the southwestern towns and cities of Spain. You can tour Malaga, Ronda, Jerez de la Frontera, Sevilla, and Granada – to name just a few – swim and sun, golf, play tennis, sail, jog, and take lovely siestas inside or outside your own lovely holiday villa in Spain. Secluded and quiet, yet close to so many activities.
This gracious, luxury Spanish-style villa has been featured many times in books and magazines, including Town & Country, Marie Claire Decoration, The Gardens of Russell Page, and the Gardens of Spain. Part of the mature garden was designed by Russell Page, with a pencross grass lawn. The large pool (16 x 5 meters) has a unique pool house made of shell and wood. The villa rental has two floors, three patios and ample outdoor terraces. The museum-quality décor is a mixture of contemporary, oriental, and classic Spanish and American styles. Nevertheless, it has comfortable and home-like touches because this is a private residence. There is a covered garage for two cars, and additional outdoor parking for four more.

There is a twin-bedded room (each bed is 103 x 193 cm) with a patio and an ensuite bathroom with tub and handheld shower head, sink and WC. The kitchen area is made of two rooms with its own patio. There are two refrigerators, freezer, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, and oven. There is also a laundry area with a washing machine and dryer.

We had a very pleasant week, and the owner made it easy with a packet of info. Whoever stays there needs to know it is a gracious, old, outdated place with some priceless and worn art, and needs someone who appreciates history more than modern appointments. The lawns were exquisite, and the housekeeper very kind. We loved all the outdoor spaces and spent much time there.
The grounds were absolutely beautiful, next to a world class golf course, and the lawn and pool area was blooming and beautiful. The owner met us at the door and could not have been more gracious and accommodating. He gave us restaurant suggestions and a contact for traveling to Tangiers and Morrocco for the day or overnight. He was so helpful and pleasant and his information excellent.
The bedrooms all had twin beds, not great for couples, although they were pushed together. This was a beautiful estate, but it needs some updating. Everything worked fine, but it was like visiting a place where I I kept envisioning how wonderful it would be to have the wherewithal to redo the decor and appliances...they were tired looking.
We were within easy driving distance from Gibraltar, Marbella, Ronda, and Estepona for day trips. It was also a very nice neighborhood. My husband and I enjoyed power walking to the beach, within a half mile.

The Villa was great! The grounds are so special and the gardens are beautiful; the outdoor eating area was great for lunch everyday. Used the owner's mother's beautiful dishes and linens - Just felt right at home! I would highly recommend it. The owner was gracious and helpful and filled us in on the family history and the town of Sotogrande.
That it is in a residential planned devlopment, and the nearest beach was a pay beach. The maid was a little "gruff"/protective of the proerty. There were mosquitos around the pool area.
We took the 1 hour fast ferry to Tangier. We drove to Tariffa to the well-known wind surfing beach about 15-20 minutes away where you can see Gibralter and Morocco.
