La Alcaidesa is separated from Sotogrande and Gibraltar by a vast ecological reserve, which gives this area a natural character, making it ideal for holiday homes, golfers or for those seeking total tranquillity; yet, it is within easy access to amenities via the A-7 road connecting Estepona and Gibraltar. Within a short 5-minute drive, one can reach the Sotomarket commercial centre in Sotogrande, as well as a commercial centre in Los Barrios with cinemas, supermarkets and shops. In addition, many professionals from Gibraltar or Algeciras reside in La Alcaidesa, because they can live in bigger properties with fantastic views that are within a short, 20-minute commute.

Since its inception in the 1990s, the residents in La Alcaidesa have been mainly nationals from Britain, Spain and also Gibraltarians, who are colloquially known as “llanitos”. In fact, many llanitos own a second residence in La Alcaidesa or Sotogrande, because most properties in Gibraltar are located in high-density apartment blocks. In recent years, La Alcaidesa has attracted numerous buyers from a variety of other nations, primarily from Scandinavia and northern Europe. This is as a result of new routes from Gibraltar Airport (situated less than a 20-minute drive away), improvements to La Hacienda Golf, and the launch of several new residential projects, such as Infinity and Serenity. This is not to mention the fact that La Alcadeisa offers a unique setting that has been discovered by more discerning buyers, who seek to avoid high-density areas.
