“To me, the polo player has elegance and imagination. It embodies sophisticated luxury and a timeless style”, Ralph Lauren

Polo has always been recognized for its exclusive lifestyle and as an elite sport enjoyed and played by royals and business tycoons alike. Winston Churchill, Prince Philip, Kerry Packer and the Sultan of Brunei are just some of the big advocates the sport has seen. Reserved for the elite, there are only a select few who are fortunate enough to have access to the game, owning fleets of polo ponies, hiring the world’s top pros and playing the international polo circuit. The world of polo currently has always moved around this minuscule amount of players, but now there are more polo clubs opening-up access to new comers in Sotogrande – the “European polo Mecca”.


Sotogrande is a luxury hideaway on the Southern coast of Spain and one of Europe’s most exclusive coastal resort destinations. Since the early 1960’s the area has been well-known as the summer residence of the global elite and nowadays an ever growing real estate complex. This secret gem on La Costa del Sol is the epicenter of polo in Europe and home to some of the most exclusive clubs in the world. With over 20 polo fields in the area, just minutes from the beaches and some of the best equine facilities in the world, it’s no wonder why over 2000 ponies and the biggest names in polo flock to Sotogrande every season.


Polo Valley is one of the world-class polo facilities located in Sotogrande. Set on a 100 acre estate, Polo Valley counts for 150 stables, 3 polo fields, a 12 acre lake, private accommodation and a clubhouse to welcome anyone who is interested in discovering or practicing polo. The resort has proven that anyone can play and enjoy polo. From total beginners to professional players, the focus is to share their passion for this amazing sport and the magnificent animals that make it possible, inspiring people to step out of their comfort zone and live the authentic polo experience in an Andalusian paradise.
