Breve Historia

En 1957, Don Tomás Robertson y Doña Pepita Geffroy crearon la asociación Villa De San Miguel. Éstas tierras fueron nombradas antes de su compra (a don Benigno Velásquez).

Durante los años 60's Doña Pepita y Don Tomás apoyaban el deporte del surfing y patrocinaban diversos eventos y viajes a la isla Todos Santos.

Muchos de los surfers originales siguen siendo visitantes de la Villa, algunos son residentes. También recibimos a los nietos de éstos en los diferentes torneos que realizan aquí.

Entre los años 1980-81, una división de propiedades entre las dos familias (Robertson-Geffroy) fué necesaria. Debido a la decayente salud de Don Tomás, fueron su hijo Leigh y su nieto Glenn, quienes tomaron gran parte de las decisiones de éstas reuniones.

Ahora, son los bisnietos de Don Tomas y Doña Dorotea Robertson quienes están al frente de ésta Villa de San Miguel.

Somos famosos mundialmente por la calidad de las olas, somos cede de importantes eventos durante el año....



Short History

In 1957, Don Tomas Robertson and Doña Pepita Geffroy created the Association “Villa de San Miguel”. These lands were named long ago, before they were purchased from a man named Benigno Velásquez.

Both Mr. Robertson and Mrs. Geffroy-Bitterlin supported the surfing and helped young boys (no girls then) sponsoring various events, such as competitions here in the village as well on the Island “Todos Santos”, which is only 6 miles in front of us.

Most of those “boys” are still regulars visitors, a lot of them are now residents, and we welcome their grandkids each year for the different competitions held here. We are the home of over 100 residents from all over U.S. and México.

Between 1980-1980, a division between properties of the Robertson and Geffroy-Bitterilin families was necessary. Don Tomas attended but due to his declining health, his grandson Glenn took his position in coming to an agreement with Architect Jean Loup Bitterlin Geffroy (Doña Pepita’s son) over the splitting of the properties.

Today, Don Tomas’ great grand “kids” are in charge of this village.

Villa de San Miguel is known the world over for the quality of the waves. It is host to many national and international competitions.
