If you’re thinking of buying your very own slice of sun-kissed paradise, there are several resorts which offer stylish, luxurious and modern living in some of the best locations in Europe for golf enthusiasts. Let’s take a look.
Home to some of Europe‘s most revered golf courses, luxurious villas and apartments, and a brand new 5-star hotel, Sotogrande in southern Spain is one of the most prestigious residential developments in Europe. Set in the glorious Andalusian hills and close to the beaches of the Costa del Sol, Sotogrande is within easy reach of Gibraltar Airport and just over an hour from Malaga Airport.
It’s a chic, exclusive community spanning 600 hectares, comprising gated communities of upscale villas and residences with incredible views of the Mediterranean. It’s home to some of Europe’s most legendary golf courses including Real Club de Golf Sotogrande, Real Club Valderrama, host the 1997 Ryder Cup, and Almenara Golf Club.
For those looking to buy a property, scattered among the hills at the centre of Sotogrande are distinctive, private and secure gated communities of luxurious residences. The Seven villas offer a collection of one-of-a-kind villa concepts designed by a different, eminent international architect. Each one hectare homesite integrates into its surroundings and enjoys complete privacy, with unrivalled views across the Mediterranean. Each family home is spacious, fully serviced and enjoys an extensive array of amenities.
The 15 villas were designed to amplify the landscape with their architectural ‘cliff-hanging’ concept, offering spectacular views of the Mediterranean. Each property covers approximately half a hectare and includes concierge lifestyle and property services, providing residents with the perfect conditions to enjoy their leisure time.
Village Verde brings village living into the 21st century with everything you need to relax and unwind. Just a stone’s throw from the prestigious La Reserva Club, the 121 properties are nestled within six hectares of parkland and offer residents unique communal spaces with state of the art facilities.
Less than an hour from Barcelona and close to the glorious beaches of the Costa Brava, PGA Catalunya Golf & Wellness is one of the world’s leading golf, lifestyle and real estate resorts. Just 15 minutes from Girona in the pine forests of Catalunya, this resort offers two championship golf courses, the Stadium Course and the Tour Course, a luxury 5-star hotel, superb gastronomy and a world-class spa.
If you’re looking for a property for sale in Costa Brava, the properties here are contemporary and specially designed to embrace the Mediterranean lifestyle. There’s three-bedroom apartments, four-bedroom semi-detached villas with a terrace, and a range of stunning two-, three- or four-bedroom luxury villas and townhouses, all offering panoramic views over the golf courses or the Pyrenees. And you can choose between buying a property or designing and building your own dream home in keeping with the architectural concept of the resort with the help of the experienced resort team.
The semi-detached villas overlook the 5th green. Each is a four-bedroom property and a haven of light and space, perfect for family living. An outside terrace is perfect for making the most of the sun, while a 21 square meter infinity pool offers a place to cool down and a beautiful setting for evening entertainment. Then there’s the detached luxury villas, designed by award-winning architects. There are currently 11 different options to buy, each with its own pool. Each is unique and all the properties bear the hallmark of contemporary design, high-quality finishes and subtle integration with nature.
The three new apartments, located in a peaceful wooded area, are the most innovative properties at the resort, built around an elegant pool complete with sundeck and outdoor lounge space. Each is three-bedroom with exceptional views over the Stadium Course. There’s also stylish four-bedroom terraced villas located near the 18th hole with access to a communal area with an infinity pool.
Set high above Tenerife’s western coastline about 25km from the south airport, with incredible views to the island of La Gomera, lies the luxurious Ritz Carlton Abama Resort and the Abama Golf Club. The golf course is beautifully conditioned with endless sea views and elevated tees.
The resort is an exclusive 400-acre vacation and residential destination tucked away on Tenerife’s idyllic southwest coastline. With world-class dining and 5-star services, many guests are so enamoured with the location they choose to make their home at one of the resort’s private luxury properties. With an undisturbed beach, sumptuous spa, and year-round springtime climate, it’s easy to see why. All real estate offers views over the Atlantic Ocean or Abama’s lush green golf course.
With the real estate developments at the resort you can own your own slice of this volcanic garden paradise. You can also build your own dream villa by choosing a plot of land, or you can buy a pre-built villa and decorate it your way. The growing community at Abama resides on the side of the beautiful Teide volcano making the views astounding. As well as the custom villas, there are three groups of properties for you to invest in.
If you are looking for something modest yet luxurious, Las Terrazas is a development of serviced apartments that look out onto the Atlantic and neighbouring Canary Islands. At Bellevue, the detached and semi-detached homes come with fully landscaped gardens, and two swimming pools. Las Casas del Lago is a development made up of six super-luxury villas. These homes are terraced and secluded so that you have the chance to have a private escape from the world.
This is an exceptional destination in the Algarve countryside and the perfect escape for those looking to connect with nature. Preserving the region’s natural beauty and cultural heritage, Ombria Resort includes a luxury hotel managed by Viceroy Hotels & Resorts alongside an 18-hole golf course. The resort offers an exclusive selection of wellness experiences and outdoor activities, along with recreational facilities specially designed for families and children.
Planned to open in early 2023, Ombria Resort’s 18-hole course will offer a landmark golf experience at one of the finest sustainable resorts in Portugal. Players will enjoy the outstanding facilities of the 5-star Viceroy hotel and the perfect all-year round climate of an inland Algarve golf course.
