Greetings!

This week we're pleased to bring you our first Spotlight on a property in Spain. Offering 1/8th fractional shares, Arcos Gardens is a gorgeous golf estate in the beautiful southwestern region of the country. 
Arcos Gardens GolfThe Location
Arcos Gardens Golf Club & Country Estate is located in the province of Cadiz, in the southwestern corner of Andalusia. This culturally rich region is the origin of many distinctive Spanish traditions such as flamenco dancing and bull fighting. Explore the historic route of White Villages where Ubrique, Ronda and Grazalema will reveal their past. Browse through traditional boutiques in Seville, Cadiz and Granada, or venture into the wineries and underground cellars of Jerez.  

Situated near the picturesque town of Arcos de la Frontera, Arcos Gardens is just 20 minutes from Jerez and one hour from Seville (both with international airports). The climate features warm summers and mild winters, with an average temperature of 64 degrees (F). It has moderate rainfall and never snows.

Arcos Gardens features a beautiful 300-year-old boutique hotel, restaurant, tapas bar, health spa, and fitness room, while tennis courts, jogging track, equestrian center, and a children's club house are in the planning stages.

The heart of the estate is the Arcos Gardens Golf Course with club house, practice facilities and golf academy. Designed by Landmark (creators of PGA West and Palm Beach Polo), the course has been developed as a challenge to professionals, while providing an enjoyable experience for amateurs. With views across the countryside to surrounding lakes and the cliff-top town, a round of golf at Arcos Gardens is a true pleasure for all players.
