Rio Real property and golf near Marbella centre
Just east of Marbella city centre, the pretty residential district of Rio Real attracts families seeking a property and a permanent base in Spain, as well as those who enjoy spending their free time on the Costa del Sol.
For many, the main attraction is Rio Real Golf, a beautiful 18-hole, par 72 course running alongside the river from which the area takes its name. Opened in 1965, the course was designed by renowned golf architect Javier Arana and is considered to be one of the best in Spain by the Royal Spanish Golf Federation. While on their round of golf, players can enjoy stunning sea views and many different species of flora including pine, palm, cypress and olive trees.
The course is suitable for golfers of all levels but those who require more focused tuition can attend the range of courses organised by the Rio Real Golf Academy’s trainers, led by Sergio de Céspedes, National Coach for the Spanish Golf Federation’s Junior Team. Here the professionals use biomechanics to analyse a player’s game and help them to improve, whether a beginner or more experienced.
Although much of Rio Real is established, there are a limited number of opportunities to acquire new build contemporary villas on medium sized plots combining the privacy of your own pool with a sleek, highly designed property with all the mod cons you’d expect. This format is proving to be increasingly desirable among couples and families seeking a statement home.
More traditionally styled townhouses and apartments line the golf course and are equally popular in Rio Real Golf and the surrounding area. With two or three bedrooms, the luxury townhouses feature real fireplaces, well-equipped kitchens, private gardens and golf, garden or sea views. These Rio Real properties are usually located within complexes offering community swimming pools and lush gardens.
The choice of apartment complex is wide-ranging in terms of size and facilities. Some offer fantastic views of the golf course fairways while others focus on the sea. Many of the apartments are within gated communities providing that extra element of security. Air conditioning, fireplaces, beautiful marble floors and well thought out bathrooms are just some of the features to be expected in the high quality finish of Rio Real Golf apartments.
The amenities available in and around Rio Real Golf are varied and include highly respected restaurants, sporting facilities, hotels and stunning beaches. Moreover, Rio Real’s diverse accommodation offering almost guarantees that there is something to suit everyone looking to invest. This prime residential area continues to grow in popularity and will keep drawing attention in the future.
