Since its initial development in the early 1990s, Alcaidesa has grown into a highly desirable residential area just a stone’s throw from prestigious Sotogrande and an easy 20 minute drive away from Gibraltar.
Located in the Campo de Gibraltar in Spain’s Cádiz province, Alcaidesa is a low-density urbanisation that is popular for its exclusive residential properties as well as holiday homes boasting fabulous golf and sea views. The spectacular sandy beach is spacious and picturesque, as are the two golf courses: the Links course with its iconic views to Gibraltar and Morocco, and the well-appointed newer Heathland Golf Course. Not to be forgotten are 19 other world-class golf courses just five to ten minutes’ drive away in and around Sotogrande.
Buying property in Alcaidesa opens up many opportunities, usually at more affordable prices than in neighbouring Sotogrande. Choose from beautiful permanent homes within an easy commute to work in Gibraltar to long-term or short-term holiday rental investments in the form of luxury villas, town houses or apartments. What makes Alcaidesa particularly appealing is its ready supply of renters from Gibraltar who are looking for a peaceful, beachside escape from the hustle and bustle of the Rock and the equally busy frontier town of La Linea de la Concepcion. Alcaidesa is also a popular holiday destination for Spanish and international visitors who come to enjoy golf and beach holidays, making holiday homes here high in demand, particularly during the summer months.
Alcaidesa’s buildings all conform to strict style guidelines so that they resemble traditional pueblo houses, a factor that has restricted the growth of the development to a smaller scale than you might find further along the Costa del Sol. You will find Alcaidesa’s careful balance between private villas, townhouses and apartments means a village-like feel. The urbanisations not only have magnificent views, they are also blessed with lush communal gardens, swimming pools, paddle tennis courts and allocated parking or garages, making them ideal for both lifestyle and holiday home investment choices.
