The background of La Zagaleta.
This natural paradise was originally called La Barraka by Adnan Khashoggi who used it for a while as his own private home and hunting ground. In 1990, he lost the estate in bankruptcy proceedings and La Zagaleta became the retreat of the world’s richest millionaires and famous, drawn to the estate’s great location and absolute privacy.
Within this luxurious setting, Khashoggi courted some of the most influential figures of his time.
In 1990, a consortium of investors led by Mr. Enrique Pérez Flores acquired La Baraka, giving rise to La Zagaleta SA. Flores envisaged creating a super-exclusive estate that would blend seamlessly with the natural surroundings in the foothills of the Ronda mountain range. However, the estate’s development plan called for a maximum of only 420 homes, ensuring that the environment remained low-density while providing top-notch facilities for the exclusive use of its residents.
