"After a few days partridge shooting I guess I have covered a thousand different coordinates of half a bowl, 180 degrees front to back and left to right. Add as ingredients, different speeds of the birds due to wind, temperature and altitude. My brain must be so much more powerful than a computer to instantly figure out the right pattern to bring the bird down. Amazing it is... and I can assure you the adrenalin is pumping!" -BVM Founder
Spain has always had a peculiar attraction for hunters. It of course has two very unique ways of hunting namely the "ojeo"-driven partridge- and the "monteria" -driven big game-. Andalucia has long been the eldorado of partridge shooters, providing some of the world's finest shooting, in breathtaking scenery of hills and valleys. In contrast with the more northern hunting areas, Seville boasts a reputation of ever-sunny skies and mild temperatures the whole hunting season long. taking the sun at his post, with deer, boar and mouflon all around you is a pleasure for any hunter. The informal yet traditional atmosphere, punctuated by the convivial
Spanish hospitality, make these outings a daylong fiesta. Put Soto Real, the exclusive hunting resort and retreat in these surroundings and a Magic Safari Lodge is born. Andalucia also offers the sportsman numerous alternative activities such as 600 lb. tuna fishing in the strait of Gilbratar, or taking on the Volvo Masters championship golf course close by. But, what really triggers everyone's imagination is that you can walk around in short sleeves in winter, enjoying your days out hunting while friends or associates back home are shivering in the cold. Your only thought then is: " this is magic". Nature around Soto
Real could not be more tempting! A true sportsman will appreciate the swift flight of the red-legged partridges driven from the hills by the majestic Andalusian horses over an armada of a dozen pair-gunned shooters. Pigeon, duck and quail are the other small game bagged during outings on foot. Hare hunting with horses and greyhounds are another typical Andalusian attraction. Big game also abounds in the forested hills with species such as the red- and fallow deer, roe, mouflon and not forgetting the much-coveted wild boar.
Hunting them in Monteria style, driven by dogs "podencos and mastines", holds the greatest fascination for anyone, given both the skills and the ancient rites involved. Stalking the Spanish Ibex is a challenge for the fittest as the mountains around Ronda can take their toll. The hunting season lasts from September till February, although when stalking the season can be extended to nearly year round.
Today Spain must be rated as Europe's last hunting paradise, and not just for its sunshine. Nested in a valley, amidst rolling hills, Soto Real is an oasis among the palm trees, bougainvillea and orange trees. The main cortijo has this very special feel of a wonderful country house. Each room designed and decorated in a delightful blend of traditional Andalusian and old Mauresque style, has an en suite luxury bathroom, intimate salon and private terrace.
Soto Real does not attempt to present an image or make a statement. The aim is to provide guests with quiet comfort and discreet service, which will enable them to relax and draw from surroundings and to restore the senses that modern life tends to crush. The perception of luxury also has a touch of elegance: decoration is luxurious yet without ostentation, fantasy in all sobriety giving total tranquility. Soto Real is also perfect for couples and families, for a long weekend or a short week. It is within easy driving distance of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, the towns of Jerez, Sevilla and Cordoba and the surrounding white villages - all available as chauffeur-driven excursions. In the cortijo itself there are opportunities for horse and carriage riding, fitness, sauna, as well as a beauty-center, tennis and clay shooting, all organized by professional staff.

But in none of those books will you find such an exceptional and exclusive house as Soto Real... it’s Magic!"
