Enjoy the Lifestyle. Stay Forever.
Sotogrande has been a sun-soaked haven for the wealthy since the 1960s. Sotogrande’s legacy began when self-made millionaire and philanthropist Joseph Rafael McMicking had a vision to build a development that would be based around friendship and getting active in the Great Outdoors. Attracted by the ‘low key’ lifestyle that avoided the gaze of cameras in the likes of St Tropez, famous residents in the 1960s included the president of the First National City Bank in New York, George Moore. An influential and popular character, he brought along divas and powerful friends such as Jackie and Aristotle Onassis, opera singer Maria Callas and the politician, Spiro Agnew. Soon Sotogrande was awash with an impressive collection of famous faces and household names, all basking in this glorious pocket of Mediterranean life.
In the 1970s, the American society photographer Slim Aarons was famous for his pictures of the rich and famous at play. He once remarked that celebrities invited him to their parties “because they knew I wouldn’t hurt them. I was one of them.” As a destination where nobility and celebrity rubbed shoulders, Sotogrande offered rich pickings to Aarons. His ‘poolside’ shots of 1975 captured a unique slither of the Sotogrande society, with sun-tanned bodies lazing by crystal-blue pools surrounded by clipped jade green lawns. The ’80s and ‘90s brought sailing, golf and polo to the area with the Ryder Cup and the Real Club de Maritimo de Sotogrande (RCMS) transforming the destination into a hub of sporting legend. Throughout the decades, members of European royalty, sports stars and Hollywood’s A-listers have been spotted among the signature glamour of Soto’s polo matches, regattas and golf tournaments.
The next chapter of La Reserva Club continues McMicking’s legacy towards envisioning an Andalucian paradise. This private enclave is designed to deliver a refined selection of leisure activities to the world’s elite, where friends can meet, dine and play together on the Costa del Sol. Here, there is a way of life to suit everyone. Through its own 400 gated hectares, it offers discerning families a country club setting to enjoy what really matters to them. It reinvents Sotogrande Resort Living through an exclusive set of individual and gated communities and state of the art country club offering residents and visitors a true sense of belonging and neighbourhood.
