Why we love it
Villa El Chorrito was superb so no complaints whatsoever. Karen, the maid, came in every day and was excellent as well. I had pre-arranged a chef for the first night and a couple of other nights through Fay and the chef Curro, was so good we asked him to cook for us every night, which he did. After playing golf every afternoon this just made the evenings so much more relaxed. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa and most definitely Curro
Enjoy the local area
Villa El Chorrito has a privileged location in the exclusive Sotogrande estate.
The privately owned Sotogrande estate is the destination of choice for discerning guests looking for an exclusive & private setting with an exceptional standard of accommodation.
Villa El Chorrito is located at the end of a private lane which overlooks the rolling greens of the San Roque golf club.
This is the destination for some of the best golf in Spain, with Valderrama just 1.9km away, you can also play Real Club de Golf, La Canada and the Reserva de Sotogrande all within a comfortable 10 km or so round trip.
The Marina is the highlight of Sotogrande with its luxury yachts, cafes and restaurants at the water’s edge, while the Polo nearby is a summer event that brings in the world’s elite year after year to enjoy the action.
Dining out can take place in the restaurants of the marina, or in the village centres of Pueblo Nuevo and Guadiaro. Or you might head to one of the chiringuitos along the beaches at either side of Sotogrande for a taste of fresh fish and a cool glass of Tinto del Verano.
For a different kind of day out you are just half an hour from Gibraltar, or for a more Spanish vibe head inland a short distance to explore the delightful white village of Jimena de la Frontera or the castle fortress town of Castellar de la Frontera.
