Quercus is the latest urbanisation to be announced at Real de La Quintaa 200-hectare estate, next to a UNESCO biosphere reserve. It is the only project in the area to get BREEAM accreditation (the global standard for assessing building projects in terms of their ecological and social responsibility) across the whole resort.

Just launched are 36, two- and three- bedroom apartments. Each home enjoys spectacular, uninterrupted panoramic views down the Spanish coastline and beyond to North Africa and Gibraltar.  Generous living spaces and large terraces create a sense of space and freedom, encouraging outdoor living. With between four and six apartments per building, each apartment enjoys the benefit of having only one adjoining neighbour. The blend of beige concrete, wood, and natural stone echoes the surrounding countryside and complements the stunning natural environment.

“It’s nice to get away from the ubiquitous white boxes, and I applaud the developer using natural stone and wood. It gives the homes a warm feel, while still being contemporary, and I love the cutting-edge design and quality features,” comments Shirin.

The development is the first and only resort in the region to receive BREEAM accreditation across the entire project. Applied in more than 70 countries, it is the global standard for assessing building projects in terms of their ecological and social responsibility. It assesses several factors from water and energy use to urban mobility, from recycling to local suppliers, from landscaping to protecting the local flora and fauna.

La Quinta Grupo Inmobiliario is the developer behind the scheme. They have been creating exclusive residences for over 30 years with passion and innovative vision. Prices start at €493,500 for a 2-bedroom apartment and €633,500 for a 3-bedroom apartment.
