About Piers Laing

British by Nationality but have lived in Spain for 25 years and know the area really well. So more than happy to answer any questions you may have about activities, sightseeing, shopping. The house was built by my Father (A successful Property Developer) who is now retired. Over the year my Brother and I have added more personal renovations and personal touches to the property.

Piers Laing purchased this villa in 2005

Why Piers Laing chose Sotogrande

Sotogrande is the most beautiful location on the Costa del Sol, it is very desirable and much loved my the professional class of Spaniards who choose this as their number 1 holiday destination. It not only has natural beauty including the River Guadiaro estuary, golden sand beaches and woodland, it also offers every kind of sport within 10 minutes drive, including golf, polo, horseriding, paddle tennis, water sports. It has its own marina with many restaurants and bars and local village with all amenities necessary for a comfortable stay, including 2 upmarket supermarkets.

What makes this villa unique

The property is situated in a most tranquil and beautiful setting, it affords total privacy and the only noise you will hear is birdsong. For nature and bird lovers it is a perfect spot with many unusual birds and animals such as the colourful but noisy Jay, mongooses and salamanders. There is a private gate at the rear of the garden that leads straight out to a little stream and a woodland walk. However you are only 5 minutes drive away from all the amenities you could wish for, including a vibrant nightlife at the Port for the younger guests. Taxis are plentiful and reasonably priced so no worry about drinking and driving - although most of our guests prefer to spend the long summer evening by the pool having a barbecue or sitting up at the outside bar near the hot tub.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our family for one week & had the most magical time! We arrived on the Friday and got married in Gibraltar on the Tuesday & returned to Villa Karibu with our guests for our wedding reception. They were amazed at the beautiful house & gardens. Everything was perfect & I can honestly say that I couldn't fault the villa or the hospitality of the owners. They couldn't have been more helpful & accommodating to us. Everything went to plan and our guests enjoyed the villa. The relaxing & spacious gardens were exactly what we had hoped for. The villa is spectacular & I don't think there is anything else that could come close to this! Susan,the owner, communicated with me frequently before we arrived, & put my worrying mind to rest each time! We will always have fantastic memories of this beautiful villa, & would love to return yearly to celebrate our wedding anniversary!
