Enrique Pérez Flores established the private estate of La Zagaleta on the Costa del Sol in the year 1990. The estate enjoys a gorgeous setting at the foot of the Ronda Mountains and was built to blend in with its natural surroundings, serving as a symbol of regional exclusivity. The name “La Zagaleta” is derived from the Castilian word “zagala,” which means “young shepherdess,” and alludes to the fact that the area was once populated by shepherds who utilized it as a passage between Marbella and Ronda.
La Zagaleta’s nearly 900 hectares of property are home to an unrivaled variety of recreational amenities like two golf courses, a riding club, tennis and paddle courts, a heliport, hiking paths, and a social club. The estate also offers a variety of individualized services designed to make you feel right at home, keeping your privacy and family values in mind.

Deer and fallow deer are typical sights on the course, contributing to the serene and private atmosphere.
