The luxury of living in Rio Real, aerial view

Living in Rio Real is one of the preferred options for many discerning buyers. Rio Real offers its residents all the tranquillity of the suburbs. But only 5 minutes from the city centre.

In a green, quiet and discreet environment, this residential area is one of the most valued. Especially for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

Living in Rio Real, an exceptional location

In Rio Real we find some advantages that we can find separately in different areas of the city, but we will hardly find them all together. 

Proximity to the city centre

This luxurious residential area is located just after leaving Marbella centre by the East side. In only 5 minutes we can be in the city centre. We will be able to do our shopping, banking, social activities, visit our friends…

Beach area

Living in Rio Real you can enjoy the beach at any time. From homes right on the beach (the closest ones), to the furthest ones, just 1 kilometre from the sea. Even the furthest ones will allow us to visit the sea in a 10 minute walk.

Being far from the centre, the beaches of Río Real are less affected by tourism and offer a greater natural wealth.

Seafront promenade

From Rio Real beach we can take advantage of the 12 kilometres of promenade that will take us to Puerto Banus. This will allow us to make the most of the 300 days of sunshine a year by doing some physical work, riding a bicycle, walking our pets…

Golf courses

Designed by Javier Arana (considered one of the best golf course designers), Rio Real Golf runs through this area from north to south. With a large number of trees and with some holes on the beachfront, it stands out for its great beauty.

As well as a golf course in the heart of Río Real, there are two others within easy reach. The courses of Santa Clara Golf and Marbella Golf Country Club are only 2.5 kilometres away (about 3 minutes by car).


On the beach of Rio Real you will find Trocadero Arena, a place with a special charm. A cosy Mediterranean-style beach club decorated with exquisite touch. We will be able to taste its extensive culinary offer or enjoy one of its cocktails while we watch the sunset.

At Hotel Los Monteros SPA & Golf Resort you will find several restaurants where you can savour the authentic flavour of Andalusian food. The restaurant El Corzo was the first hotel restaurant in Spain to receive a Michelin star. 

Sports facilities

Not far from our residence in Río Real we can enjoy a wide range of sporting activities. In addition to the golf course, the Arrocha Horse Riding Club and Los Monteros Racket Club Tennis and Paddle are within walking distance.

Educational offer

Just 5 minutes away by car we will find different educational centres for our children:

For all these reasons, living in Rio Real is a luxury within the reach of only a few.
