Luxury & Privilege

One of the most luxurious and exclusive resort destination in Europe.

Sotogrande is located next to famous “Costa del Sol” (Malaga) and a stone’s throw from Africa, within of San Roque area, in the province of Cadiz. One of Europe’s leading luxury residential, leisure and sporting destinations.

The Sotogrande story began in 1962, when visionary Joseph McMicking, impressed by the luxurious Forbes Park estate in Manila, Philippines, thought it would be an interesting idea to build something similar. He commissioned a search for a suitable location, which needed to have pristine beaches and access to an airport, and this area of the province of Cadiz had just that. After visiting it personally, McMicking, with the help of his two nephews, Jaime and Enrique Zobel, finally decided to build the dream that is today Sotogrande.

This Mediterranean paradise, with its 2,500 hectares, offers unique and unrivalled amenities and services along with world-class sports such as Polo, Golf, Sailing, Tennis and more. As well as being a first class holiday and residential destination to enjoy life, family and elite sports.

Beautiful Marina Port

With a beautiful marina known as “Little Venice” and strategically located, the marina of Sotogrande is one of the best equipped and most welcoming in the Mediterranean.

Excellent Golf Destination

Due to its lush landscapes, unbeatable climate and lifestyle, Sotogrande is surrounded by some of the best golf courses in Southern Europe: Real Club Valderrama, La Reserva de Sotogrande, Almenara Golf Club, Alcaidesa, San Roque Club and many more.
The world famous Real Club Valderrama has been the best golf course in continental Europe since 1989, hosting among others tournaments, the Ryder Cup, the Volvo Masters or the Andalucía Masters.

Santa María Polo Club

One of the best Polo Clubs in the world

Since the creation of the first polo field, the growing enthusiasm for the sport has made Sotogrande a mecca for the polo scene, home to the famous Grand Slam International Polo Tournament held every year.

The Club has enjoyed a tradition of polo since 1965, organizing since 1971 one of the largest world polo tournaments: the famous Sotogrande Gold Cup. As well as other prestigious competitions, such as the Silver and Bronze Cups of Sotogrande, and the Domecq Memorial, all of them highlighted on the international polo calendar.

Since then, Santa María Polo Club has become one of the four best polo clubs in the world, thanks to its 2 field areas, its World Class polo fields, its 5 star stables and its top-level facilities.

The Club celebrates more than 20 tournaments a year and has become a meeting point for luxury international brands such as Maserati, Bacardi, Lexus, Cartier, Bulgari, Loewe, Louis Vuitton, Hublot, BMW, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Hackett London.
