Created in 1962, as the largest private estate in Spain, Sotogrande has been developed to be a premier residential resort focused on families and healthy living. Sports are central to its DNA, with a chic marina and active yachting community, some of the finest polo facilities in the world and a high density of world-class golf courses.
