Real de La Quinta: A Luxurious Location
Spain is gorgeous in general – and La Quinta is no exception. You can find La Quinta in the Benahavís municipality. In this setting, nature thrives. La Quinta does not simply have nature around it, but it is actually built into nature. La Quinta and natural beauty go hand in hand. Not to mention, Real de La Quinta lies next to a UNESCO protected area – the biosphere nature reserve of the Sierra de las Nieves, soon to become Spain’s 16th National Park
Benahavis is known to be one of the most affluent municipalities in Spain, as there is a thriving tourism and luxury real estate industry. This municipality stands out from its neighbouring areas in the Costa del Sol. It is quieter and has retained more of the traditional allure that attracts people from all over the world.
La Quinta borders Marbella. From there, you can easily visit Puerto Banus, as it is a mere 10 minutes drive away.
A luxurious development
With more than 200 hectares to its name, Real de La Quinta features everything one could want from a luxury resort development. The setting is one of rolling hills covered in woods, which flank a breath-taking, green valley. The community of La Quinta sits right at the heart of the valley. Vista Lago Residences, our design-led development of 18 sustainable villas is located on one of the highest south-oriented plots of Real de La Quinta.
The La Quinta resort showcases stylish, contemporary villas – perfect for holidays homes or second houses. Exquisite sea views and picturesque mountains are not the only selling point for this project. This development features the largest man-made lake in the Costa del Sol area. The lake will provide an excellent swimming location, as well as one for non-motorised water sports.
Having a house in the proximity of the lake will be truly peaceful. Many of the resort amenities will be situated around the lake – such as an executive golf course, a lake club and small selection of shops. On top of this, new developments in La Quinta include fine dining locations, a boutique hotel, a wellness centre and an equestrian centre. So, you’ll never be short of things to do or places to go in this stunning area.
The road ahead
The stretch of land that La Quinta has to offer means that development will take place in phases, which will encapsulate a security system, landscaping and roads. These, along with amenities and architecture, will be effective and aesthetically pleasing for those staying in La Quinta.
The new development is highly focused on sustainability. It aims to integrate perfectly into the natural environment, as well as a five-star lifestyle. As such, Real de La Quinta is on a straight path to becoming a favourite resort in the Costa del Sol area. This luxurious location has it all – the golf course, the view, the lake, and the lifestyle. It is the optimal blend of entertainment and beautiful natural environment.
Real de La Quinta goes above and beyond the already established respect for the environment in Spain. In fact, the new development in La Quinta is a pioneer in sustainable urban projects. This is evidenced by the BREEAM sustainable construction certificate.

Pioneers in Spain for Obtaining BREEAM Communities Certification
Globally, sustainability is becoming a factor that investors prioritise. In general, sustainability can be used as a performance indicator that shows long term value for both investors and users. BREEAM is a global green building standards body. This certification is important for showing investors that development projects are sustainable – at a neighbourhood level as well as beyond that.
Real de La Quinta is the first resort to obtain this certification in Spain, which is a prestigious honour. This is a factor that investors should not take lightly. The BREEAM Communities Certification of Environmental and Social Sustainability showcases the commitment of La Quinta to sustainable ways.
The sustainability aims of the development make it environmentally friendly and supportive of local efforts. However, the lower energy and water costs also lessen the expenses of the clients, which is always beneficial. All houses in the resort must comply with BREEAM standards. This means that each component of this resort will highlight respect for the environment.
Sustainability at the Heart of La Quinta
The luxury developments in Real de La Quinta seek to use minimal resources for housing and construction. For example, there is a focus on green areas in the resort. However, there will need to be effective irrigation to keep these areas looking lush and healthy. The goal is to recycle this irrigation water from homes, where it would have been used for domestic purposes.
As water scarcity is a challenge in the south of Spain, Real de La Quinta will use infrastructure that can reduce water consumption by up to 40%. Methods to do this include harvesting rainwater, as well as recycling.
Energy is another factor that a sustainable approach prioritises. So, the new developments in La Quinta will emphasise the use of solar energy. Along with this, the construction will use the best insulation to help minimise the heating and cooling needs in the houses. Up to 15% of the energy used in the resort will come from on-site renewable sources, such as solar panels.
One of the requirements for obtaining the certification is to improve support for local suppliers. Suppliers must be located less than 80km away from the development. This means that the resort will use local suppliers, which will benefit the surrounding businesses and the local economy.
Environment and Climate
La Quinta is envisioned with the utmost respect for nature. As such, conserving biodiversity in the area is essential. Ecological corridors have been included in the designs for the La Quinta resort, which allow indigenous wildlife to move around in the area uninterrupted.
The Mediterranean is well-known for its warm weather. To ensure that the climate is agreeable for clients, the architecture has taken heat into account. There has also been a focus on ensuring that there is enough shade in public areas provided by a selection of native vegetation. These spaces will be cool as well as lush and green. The plant life chosen is indigenous and adapted to the climate.
Find Everything You Need & More
Entertainment and environment – the best of both worlds
Real de La Quinta is immersed in nature in a stunning country setting. Hiking and outings in the countryside are one step away. If you’re looking for the shoreline, Marbella is right around the corner. Or, if you prefer to stay inside the resort, you can find your slice of green heaven in one of the public garden areas. Walking and jogging trails twist through the park zones and skirt the lake.
The amenities that you need and want will all be in close range and provide entertainment that makes for perfect holidays or escapes. La Quinta offers a range of facilities and services that will allow the whole family to relax and have fun.
The manmade lake will have nearly four hectares of water to enjoy. There will be a pool area, as well as a beach area. Kayaking, paddling, surfing, and sailing are central to the lake. It will be almost 400 meters long and 80 meters wide. This gorgeous body of water will be a majestic addition to the resort.
A Golf Course of Note
The name Manuel Piñero will be familiar to anyone with an interest in golf. Manuel is a three-time world cup champion – and the ingenious designer of the Real de La Quinta golf course. This course boasts the first 12-hole layout in Spain and will be built around the lake.
There will be the choice to play a round of six holes, two rounds with 12 different holes. If you aren’t tempted away from the course to take a dip in the lake, and you’d like to add a third-round – you can complete 18 holes. This is possible as the golf course will have six fairways, and each fairway will have two greens.
Combine Smart Living with A Relaxed Mediterranean Lifestyle In La Quinta
Real de La Quinta is an exciting new investment opportunity for those who love luxury, sustainability, and the Mediterranean lifestyle. This development holds the idea of sustainability at its core – with proof of this in its BREEAM certification.
