Since acquiring four fincas and merging them to create the most significant private estate in Spain in 1962, Sotogrande has been developing this spectacular stretch of the Costa del Sol into a premier residential resort focused on families and healthy living. Joseph McMicking, a Filipino-American businessman impressed by the exclusive Forbes Park housing development in Manila, wanted to design a similar community and set out to find the ideal location. Un-spoilt beaches and access to an airport were necessary, and this area of provincial Cádiz fit the bill perfectly.

Royal families from all over the world and those in the public eye have long been visitors or residents of this 20 km sq. stretch along the Andalusian coastline.
