Welcome to Villa Chanya

Exuding Understated Elegance

Occupying the best lot on the block and surrounded by palatial private homes, Villa Chanya has the luxury finishing that is so typical of Sotogrande.

This spacious and bright villa enjoys 280-degree views of the surrounding countryside from its elevated position in the exclusive Sotogrande Alto estate. While eagles circle the open skies right in front of you, immaculate golf fairways edged with soaring firs unfold before the sparkling blue Mediterranean sea. The distant coastline of Morocco adds a special touch to the sunset vista.

Inside the property, there is an overriding sense of space and light, starting with a double-height entrance hall featuring bespoke artwork. A clean and minimalist decor helps the house’s free-flowing design, and the spectacular views are displayed to full effect thanks to the inclusion of picture windows and glass doors.

Despite its impressive size, Villa Chanya is a property designed with family in mind. A contemporary living room dominated by a huge 10-seater sofa offers plenty of space for large groups to relax in, and the expansive outdoor terraces feature family-sized dining tables seating up to 14 (plus children) guests. Elsewhere, the plush home cinema with pool table is a fun hang-out spot for film nights, while the huge kitchen with its professional-standard equipment is ideal for group cooking, or bringing in one of our private chefs while you can relax with a sundowner on the terrace!


Villa Chanya’s trademark simplicity extends to the property’s extensive exterior spaces. The gardens are minimalistic in style: featuring manicured lawns forming a half-moon around the 17m-wide infinity pool, bordered by cypress trees and rockeries filled with low-maintenance succulents, palms and lavender bushes.

A thick screen of fir trees prevents the house from being overlooked and ensure the gardens enjoy optimum privacy. A conspicuous lack of nearby neighbours also means the grounds are an ideal setting for a garden party or intimate wedding, without having to worry about keeping the noise down during the day.

Beyond a thick carpet of verdant treetops, the panoramic view expands: dun-coloured mountains running in folds to meet the dense blue glitter of the Mediterranean sea. This impressive vista is best enjoyed from the wraparound ground floor terrace – preferably at sunset with a glass of something chilled in hand – or through the large feature window of the lounge on cooler evenings.

Enjoy the local area

Sotogrande is an ideal location for a family holiday and has plenty of offer to keep groups entertained too. Exhibiting a more laid-back vibe than the rest of the Costa del Sol, the air here is clean, the views expansive and the beaches wild and beautiful. Leisure time can be divided between the rolling golf fairways and pristine polo pitches that the area is known for, or spent strolling the colourful marina or relaxing on golden sanded shores in one of the town’s upmarket beach clubs.

Other local amenities near Sotogrande include:

  • Nearest Airport: Malaga AGP 111km (1h 13 drive), Gibraltar 29km (39 mins drive)
  • Nearest Beach: Trocadero Sotogrande Beach 10km (15 mins drive)

  • Golf: San Roque Club, La Reserva, Real Club de Golf, Valderrama, all within a few mins drive of Villa Chanya

Villa Chanya is located in the highly exclusive and private Sotogrande estate, 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.

Villa Chanya's located on the edge of amazing countryside and green golf courses, offering easy access to world-class Valderrama Golf and San Roque Golf and just 15 minutes' drive to high-class Sotogrande Marina and Santa Maria Polo Club, 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 and fascinating history.

For the non-golfers in your group, the luxury So/ Sotogrande spa is 2 minutes away from your villa and the world famous Santa Maria Polo Club and Sotogrande’s picturesque Marina are also within 15 minutes by taxi.

La Reserva Club is in Sotogrande Alta near the La Reserva Golf Club House and just 15 minutes from Villa Chanya. This man-made lagoon beach complex is simply fabulous. There's waiter service, restaurant (with à la carte or buffet menus), valet service, 2.800m2 beach, huge water sport lagoon, beach lagoon and swimming pool.

The nightlife of Marbella and Estepona, and beach-life at Tarifa and Costa de la Luz are less than an hour away for a different kind of night scene, while Tangier in northern Morocco is a 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, So/ Sotogrande 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 & around 1 hour from Malaga international airport.
