Villa Location
This large beach villa is located a few minutes' walk to the beach in the residential area of Rio Verde Playa. The villa is just off the 'Golden Mile' linking Puerto Banus and Marbella. The stunning Puerto Banus Marina is a ½ mile away walk along the beach to reach the great shops, boutiques and places to eat and drink. What's more the centre of Marbella is just 5 minutes' drive away.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

The nearest supermarket is just ½ mile from Villa Rio Verde to stock up on those supplies. Puerto Banus has a huge array of local and designer shops, just 10 minutes' walk away. Alternatively, the fashionable resort of Marbella is 5 minutes' drive away, noted for its fine shopping opportunities. It also has a street market on a Monday and Saturday.

Bars and restaurants

The centre of Puerto Banus is full of atmosphere, day or night, with many restaurants, bars and clubs. It is one of the most fashionable marinas in the Mediterranean. There is an endless array of luxury yachts and sail boats to be seen in the marina along with a variety of trendy beach bars and other hot spots to be visited. The main promenade in Marbella, running along the whole length of the town, is a great place for taking a stroll or wining and dining in one of the many bars and restaurants. The beach bars along endless the Marbella coastline, known as Chiringuitos, offer an array of fish, paellas and other foods to entice you.


There is pedestrian access to Rio Verde Beach, part of the 'Golden Mile' just 25 yards away, and a pleasant ½ mile walk along it leads to Puerto Banus. There are many other beaches along this coastline too - all worth a visit!

Family fun

Tivoli World is a well-established amusement park on the Costa del Sol, heading back in the Malaga direction, it is around 30 minutes' drive from the villa. Alternatively, there is the fine Bioparc zoo in Fuengirola town. Or, one of the most popular water parks on this coast is the Mijas Aquapark- great for a fun filled, family day out.

Places of interest

Slightly further afield is the busy coastal town of San Pedro de Alcantara, a 15 minute drive west, where there is good shopping and dining in a more traditional style. A trip to Malaga City is popular with visitors to the area and is well worth it! The old part of the city is fascinating, with narrow streets, a cathedral and the Picasso Museum highlights of the area. Another great day out is a day trip to Gibraltar where you can enjoy the terrific scenery or explore the town and duty-free shops on Main Street (don't forget your passports).


There are several golf clubs in the Marbella area, including the Marbella Golf and Country Club, which is within easy reach by car. The Dame de Noche and Rio Real are just 2 of the other courses that can be enjoyed.

Other activities

For the energetic water sports are available at nearby Puerto Banus, Marbella and San Pedro.


Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Activities and things to do
Puerto Banus
Puerto Banus, six kilometres away from downtown Marbella, is estimated to attract 4,400,000 visitors a year. It is a millionaire’s playground with the ultra-chic marina as its focal point. Marbella’s world-famous port continues to attract the jet-set, so if you enjoy celebrity-watching as a sport just take a front row seat at one of the waterside cafés, and be prepared to pay quite a lot for your coffee. (You will need a copy of Hello magazine for last minute swotting.) The marina has berths for 915 boats, some of which belong to the world’s wealthiest people. Don’t expect a Happy Hour at any bar round here! Puerto Banus is Marbella´s answer to the Champs Élysées, and home to the biggest names in fashion such as Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Armani, Prada, Valentino and Jimmy Choo. The high end shopping is matched by luxury apartments, night clubs, piano bars and gourmet restaurants. To get away from it all, boat trips to various destinations are available from the central promenade.
Dama de Noche
This course is unique in that if offers a 24 hour floodlight course for those who wish to play day and night – subject to pre booking a sufficient number of players. The Dama de Noche (translated as Lady of the Night) course is comfortable to play and is located off the famous ‘Golden Mile’ between Marbella and Puerto Banus, attracting equally Spanish and foreign players. Divided by a river the course is quite level and attractive to those who wish to better their stroke and style. Also on site is buggy and club hire, golf shop bar and restaurant. Address: Nueva Andalucia, Marbella, Malaga Tel: 95 281 81 50 Fax: 95 281 70 06 Website: For golf bookings - Email: Description: 9 holes, 5352 meters, Par 70 Green Fees: 31.25 – 42.07 euros Location: Take the exit from the N340 Coast road opposite the Hotel Puente Romano and follow the signs.
Los Naranjos
Another great course designed by Robert Trent Jones able to please golfers of all levels. Set in the elegant and fashionable surroundings of Nueva Andalucia, the noticeable difference between the front and back 9 holes makes you feel as if you are playing on two different courses. Considered a typically American style course, it is level with water obstacles and a river that separates various holes, although, depending on the course, there are wide and some much more narrow freeways with Bermuda and penncross grasses used. Buggy and club hire, shop, bar and restaurant also on site Address: Nueva Andalucia, Marbella, Malaga. Tel: 95 281 24 28 Fax: 95 281 14 28 Website: For golf bookings - Email: Description: 18 Holes, par 72, 6437 metres Green fees: 75.13 euros Location: 4 ½ miles west of Marbella, take the Puerto Banus exit off the N340
Parque Acuatico Mijas
One of the most popular water parks on the coast is the Mijas Aquapark where the Adventure River ride, a 300ft winding raft slide awaits you.

Try surfing the wave pool or the huge kamikaze slide, bathe in the clear blue waters of the lake, or enjoy the twists and turns while speeding through the labyrinth slide to the pool at the bottom.

For young children and tiny tots Aqualandia has two water playgrounds and a shallow activity pool. All this set in lush gardens with a variety of sports facilities, great restaurants, picnic and bbq areas.

Charles Speight, 12-Apr-2014

For a party comprising of 60 year olds, 30 year olds and 5 year olds, the location was perfect! Very close to beach, 15 minute walk to play park and 20 minutes to central Banus, we couldn't have asked for better. The villa was quite secure, great BBQ, pool and table tennis facilities. There is nothing better than family competition to focus memories of a great holiday!
