Property for Sale on Golf Courses in Spain
Ever since the first golf club in Spain was founded in 1891, the country has been a hotspot for the sport and now hosts over 400 golf courses – more than 90 being in the Andalusian region. The year-round sunshine and beautiful scenery in the south of Spain attracts many who enjoy this pastime.
Producing some of the greatest golfers worldwide, from Severiano Ballesteros to Miguel Ángel Jiménez, Spain makes for the perfect place to own a property near a golf course. Real de La Quinta lies in the foothills of Sierra de las Nieves and is a 200-hectare estate containing some of the most luxurious villas in the area. Vista Lago Residences – a sustainable, design-led development is right in the heart of this valley and makes the perfect property investment.
Real de La Quinta: Luxurious Properties in Nature
If you are looking for high-class, bespoke properties that are submerged in a beautiful, natural environment, then look no further than La Quinta. This resort and its surroundings are a highlight of the Benahavis region.
La Quinta borders 386 square miles of a UNESCO biosphere reserve that contains exotic ravines, precipices, and deep valleys, all in a protected location. Species of eagles, deer, and boars wander freely in the Mediterranean climates of these mountains, and the protection of the UNESCO biosphere means that they will continue to do so for the years to come.
South of this biosphere reserve is the private, community of Real de La Quinta.
An Ideal Location with Amazing Views
Just a 35-minute drive from Malaga airport, Real de La Quinta is situated in an ideal location on the Costa Del Sol. Far away enough from the noise pollution of large crowds, but close enough to not feel left out, you can enjoy the peaceful retreat of your villa – all while having the option to venture out into the friendly community.
Marbella’s famous Golden Mile lies beneath the resort. The strip of coastline that runs between the La Concha mountain peak and the Mediterranean sea is one of the most exclusive regions of real estate to be found anywhere in Europe. Accommodating some of Marbella’s best hotels, tropical gardens, expensive restaurants, shops, and luxury properties, this is definitely a stretch to be visiting regularly.
The views in La Quinta are astonishing – especially in the southern region of the resort, where the Vista Lago development is situated. The villas that make up Vista Lago Residences are on one of the highest south-facing plots in Real de La Quinta, giving its residents a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean Sea and the sandy beaches that rest on the Spanish coastline.
From the comforts of your own living room, you can see the rolling, green hills that lay around you, and sights as far as Gibraltar and even the coastline of Africa.
Sustainable Golf Villas for Sale in Vista Lago Residences
It doesn’t take long for the blissful aura of a natural environment to be ruined by the unwelcomed interference of manmade constructions. The villas of Vista Lago, however, are designed to ensure that they are integrated seamlessly together with the natural habitat.
The generosity of the positioning of villas means that you have complete privacy from any other residents. You’re greeted by the lush gardens and rolling hills around you.
Having year-round sunshine is great for lowering energy costs throughout the resort. With the addition of solar panels, up to 15% of the resort’s energy usage will come from renewable sources on-site. Construction will also use the best insulation to reduce the heating and cooling requirements in the buildings. Investors and users alike can benefit from these lower expenditures and the long-term value of sustainable villas.
The BREEAM Communities Certification
The new developments in La Quinta are pioneers in sustainable, urban projects. The resort is the first of its kind to obtain the BREEAM certificate in Spain, showing investors that the development projects are sustainable at a neighbourhood level and beyond.
This certificate makes sure that all places of residence in Real de La Quinta are designed with the goal of the highest respect for the environment. Water scarcity is a huge challenge in the southern regions of Spain. Methods such as harvesting rainwater will be used by La Quinta, reducing water consumption by as much as 40%. Further reductions can also be made by recycling irrigation water from homes where it would have been used for domestic purposes.
The high-grade technologies and low maintenance needs of these properties have enormous benefits for the local ecosystem. But that’s not to say that the local economy doesn’t benefit as well from BREEAM’s standards. One of the certification’s requirements is to increase the support for local suppliers, helping neighbouring businesses less than 80km away from the development. This is a great way to build positive relationships with those in the community.
There are standards that must be met throughout the resort to keep the BREEAM certification. Our goals are to provide high-quality, golf course villas without compromising the local environment or community and have sustainability as a main priority. This is also great for long-term investors, who can be assured of the value these investments will hold long into the future.

The windows in key areas of Vista Lago’s properties submerge into the walls to erase the barriers of outside and inside.
