Rio Real is located 7 minutes from Marbella town center on the eastern edge of town. It has for many years been known as one of the more tranquil developments on the Costa del Sol and is recognized for the quality build of the various urbanizations within its boundaries.
A very popular area for quality apartments, townhouses and villas offering a mix of front line golf, golf or sea views.
The Rio Real golf course has great heritage as one of the pioneer courses in the area; it sweeps down to the sea and is beautifully tree lined with great views of the Mediterranean from its rolling fairways. The Club has a stunning boutique hotel with spa and there is talk of a “beach club” to open in 2016, all in all a great destination for families and golfers.
The tranquility of Rio Real is well balanced by its proximity to the La Canada shopping center, and the short journey to town, as well as being only 35 minutes from Málaga airport.
The beaches are very good and there are a host of “chiringuitos” where one can eat great fish dishes at sensible prices throughout the day and night.
For those wanting something a little bit more upmarket, one of the better restaurants in Marbella, El Trocadero is situated right on the beach with its own charming “beach bar” and booking a table is highly recommended …… it’s always busy!
Rio Real is a peaceful, residential area, has good golf on the doorstep and everything one could possibly want within a 7/10 minutes drive by car.
