Hacienda Vistaverde is a noble, 5-bedroom 'hacienda'-style luxury villa in a fine setting near Sotogrande set against San Roque golf course and distant mountains.
Regal formal gardens overlook the golf greens, while the large pool is tucked away in front of the villa with all-day sunshine. It's packed with character with lovely views around every corner, Andaluz patios and water fountains to stay cool in summer.
Really, though, for golfers the look and feel of the place, and the high comfort factor, is going to pale by comparison with one thing: that location.
Not only do the villa’s gardens drop down to the fairways of the San Roque Golf Club, but there are also various other top-class courses nearby: La Reserva, Real Club de Sotogrande, La Alcaidesa, La Cañada and the sensational Valderrama are all within 10-15 minutes’ drive. It’s golf heaven, in other words.

Grand & Traditional in Feel but Packed with Modern Facilities
The entrance to Hacienda Vistaverde is an exercise in how to set a scene.
You cross a courtyard with a babbling fountain at its heart, before stepping through a handsome, reclaimed 19th-century wooden door into a vast entrance hall with a cavernous wooden-beamed ceiling. So far, so palatial.
Stairs wind their way up and along a grand walkway to the five bedrooms – each of which have en-suite bathrooms and direct access onto the gardens or fine views.
Back downstairs there’s a comfortable sitting room that’s a lavish mix of golds, silvers and muted Farrow & Ball taupes and greys and which opens out onto a terrace. Adjoining this is a striking kitchen-dining room with direct access to the pool and a shady pergola-covered dining area.
The grandeur and character is all a bit of a clever trick, though. Yes, this is a luxury villa that’s grand in proportions and traditional in style with plenty of fine aesthetic notes.
But it’s in style only: it’s also completely newly built and clean-edged with sleek, modern interiors packed with luxurious facilities and amenities.
So you get all the atmospheric feel of a grand Spanish country house, but none of the inconveniences that come with an historic property. Instead of creaking floors, draughty, ill-fitting windows and noisy plumbing, you just get just lots of modern amenities and luxe-y facilities.
Comfort and character: perfection.
Beautifully Manicured Formal Gardens
Hacienda Vistaverde is a place where the inside and outside seem to be locked in a battle to out-do one another.
And even if you’re particularly won over by the handsome house with its warm, honey-coloured walls and curved windows and doors adorned with wrought iron balconies or its grand interiors, there’s no denying that the grounds here are at least their equal.
The formal gardens are studded with genuinely lovely spots. There’s a star-shaped fountain in the courtyard by the front door; a classical Italian garden with a lawned area and a decorative pool at its heart is fringed by low, beautifully manicured hedges. A smattering of ancient olives, gnarled and twisted, and cork trees provide a more rustic counterpoint.
The pool is a large walk-in affair. Surrounded by Moroccan lamps, it beckons you in for a late-night swim by flickering candlelight. Next to the pool, a shady pergola covers the house’s outdoor dining space, while a covered pool house has two very lounge-friendly seating areas flanking an outdoor fire.
The villa’s outdoor space is completed with an indoor/outdoor corner terrace. It’s the perfect spot for dining together on cooler evenings, as the shadows lengthen over the fairways of San Roque and the sun sets red against the mountains.

Why we love it
Hacienda Vistaverde enjoys a sublime location right besides the manicured greens of the San Roque golf club.
Sotogrande 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.
Your concierge has agreements with the best local clubs so can arrange all you need for a fabulous golfing break in the sun.
Hacienda Vistaverde is packed with Andalucian character inside and out. Palatial in style, from its high, beamed ceilings, ancient wooden doors, wrought-iron balconies and wall lamps to the beautifully maintained gardens, it’s a visual feast throughout.
Swathed in gardens on a smart golf resort, the setting is exclusive and private, with plenty of distance between neighbouring houses.
Culture-wise, there’s plenty to see and do in the surrounding area with the bustling port city of Cadiz and the art galleries of Malaga just over an hour’s drive away to the west and east respectively.
Enjoy the local area
The privately owned Sotogrande estate is the destination of choice for discerning guests looking for an exclusive and private setting with an exceptional standard of accommodation.
Hacienda Vistaverde is located in the highly exclusive and private Sotogrande Club, still on the eastern Costa del Sol yet enjoying the climate and lifestyle of Cadiz province. Life here is low-key but high-quality, with luxury beach clubs and a yachting marina, refreshingly few commercial developments and unspoiled virgin beaches lined with sand dunes where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic.
Here in Sotogrande the air is vibrant and clean, and the landscapes are green and insanely beautiful – perfect for hosting the world’s best golf and equestrian sports which take place each year.
For evenings out, head to the Marina, Trocadero beach club or the world-class La Reserva.
Santa Maria Polo Club is just around the corner, where the summer months let you rub shoulders with the British Royalty and the world’s horse-loving elite.
Only half an hour away you can visit Gibraltar with great shopping, fascinating history and a fantastic music festival which takes place in early September.
For the non-golfers in your group, the luxury Elysium spa is a short drive away from your villa.
The nightlife of Marbella and Estepona, and the beachlife at Tarifa and the Costa de la Luz, are less than an hour away for a different kind of night scene. Tangier in northern Morocco is a mere 45 minute ferry away – book one of our guides to show you the best of it with a door-to-door service.
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 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 which punctuate the walking route along Mr Henderson’s Railway to Ronda.
Sotogrande is just 30 minutes from Gibraltar and around 1 hour from Malaga airport.
