Still Time to Find a Great Christmas Present… at Río Real

So there’s only two days to go now, and you still haven’t found that memorable gift for a partner, family member or close friend? No need to panic. The stunningly refurbished Río Real pro-shop has a wide and varied range of items to suit all ages and tastes, obviously mainly focused on golfers who want to step out in style on the course but also ideal for other leisure pursuits such as the gym or simply relaxing around home in a comfortable sporty outfit. Also, at least in Spain, Three Kings Day (Los Reyes) is still pending on 6 January, when Spaniards traditionally exchange their Christmas gifts, so plenty of time to delight someone special with an unexpected post-Christmas surprise.

When it comes to buying an exceptional gift for Christmas, Three Kings, a birthday, an anniversary or any other important occasion (don’t forget that Valentine’s Day is coming up in February!) Marbella offers the perfect showcase. The latest report from Luxury Spain confirmed that the city remains a standard-bearer when it comes to high-end boutiques and top-brand products, second behind only Barcelona and ahead of Madrid in market share in Spain. From Puerto Banús to Marbella’s Old Town – and in Río Real’s own treasure trove of apparel, accessories and other superb products – visitors are truly spoilt for choice when indulging in some hugely pleasurable retail therapy. Earlier this year, Río Real re-opened a new-look pro-shop after doubling the existing floor space and providing it with a modern, attractive and functional design.

Coinciding with this stunning physical transformation, Río Real also boosted the range of products available, from cutting-edge equipment and innovative accessories to chic clothing and versatile footwear – for men, women and children. All in all, creating an even more appealing experience for clients, while also meeting their diverse requirements and preferences. In addition, as part of the renovation work, Río Real enhanced its welcome and booking facilities to improve services for visitors. Not to mention regulars as well, because anyone making an initial shopping sortie into Río Real’s pro-shop is bound to return, and recommend a visit to their playing partners and friends!

Andalucia`s Gateway

It always makes a good pub quiz question. What is the geographical centre of Andalucía? Historically, and semi-officially, Antequera (near the northern border of Málaga province) is considered to hold that honour – at least for tourist brochure purposes. However, earlier this year a report by the National Centre for Geographical Information argued that the exact centre is in the small Córdoba municipality of Monturque. Other key cities in the region have their own claims to fame: Sevilla, the official capital; Cádiz, the oldest city in the western world; Málaga, the Andalucian capital of international tourism… 


Golf and Tennis… Marbella’s Sporting Haven

When it comes to golfMarbella is recognised as Spain’s premier destination. The town has the highest number of courses of any municipality in Spain, but it is just as much (even more) about quality as it is about quantity. Several of the courses have hosted European Tour events (as well as the World Cup in 1973 and 1989) while others such as Río Real are regular venues for premier national and international amateur tournaments. The same applies to tennis
