Former England manager Glenn Hoddle - currently commentating for the Euros in France - is selling his luxurious holiday home in the Costa Del Sol for a cool £1.86 million.

The house is located in Sotogrande, a residential development with five golf courses, including the Valderrama golf course where the 1997 Ryder Cup was held.

Spain's largest privately owned residential development, it was featured in The Times in 2008 as having the most expensive homes in Europe.

Other residents include Prince Jefri of Brunei, the former chief executive of Tesco, Lord MacLaurin and the Bulmer cider family.

The golf courses were the reason the house was chosen, Hoddle says.

"I love the area of Sotogrande and there are some of the most wonderful golf courses in Europe there. I love my golf and have enjoyed many years here," he tells the Sun.

"I've had the house as a holiday home for about 13 years but feel I want to experience a different place now."

The Andaluz-style house has five bedrooms - all with their own private south-facing terrace - along with four bathrooms and two reception rooms, all adding up to 6,232 square feet of space. The kitchen boasts a central island, TV area and laundry room.

Luxury touches include underfloor heating, air conditioning, an alarm and a Bose music system, along with Iroko double glazing and terracotta and marble floors.

There's a large terrace at the front, which Hoddle says is his favourite spot, along with a large swimming pool, garage for two cars and a large games room facing the pool. Within the large, landscaped gardens, there's even a mini football pitch for the kids.

It's not the first time that Hoddle has considered selling the house: in 2014 he put it on the market for €2,500,000 - €100,000 more than the current price.

It's now on the books of agents Holmes Sotogrande Property Sales.
