The new Village Verde development on the edge of the La Reserva community is now under construction. This innovative development is reimagining the traditional concept of a village and bringing it up to date. It is set in 18 hectares of lush green parkland and will make the most of this stunning countryside setting with a woodland adventure playground, bike trails, a jogging route, green pedestrian promenade and outdoor gym.
Verde means green in Spanish and this reflects both its countryside setting and its commitment to being an environmentally friendly project. It is being built using sustainable construction methods and will have BREEAM certification. BREEAM is a sustainability assessment, which offers certification for projects which offer a more sustainable environment which enhance the well-being of the people who live and work in them and help protect natural resources.
The project will also certified by WELL, the premier standard for buildings, interior spaces and communities seeking to implement, validate and measure features that support and advance human health and wellness. They judge a project based on air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind and only accredit spaces that are positive and healthy places to live, where people can really thrive.
The eco-friendly properties, which flood the interiors with light thanks to large windows and sliding doors, as well as large terraces to enjoy the sunshine, definitely tick the box for air and light. The open plan living spaces, with underfloor heating and Aerotherm air-conditioning ensures comfort throughout the year. Maintaining and embracing the stunning natural environment around Village Verde has been key in the development, and facilities such as playgrounds, running tracks, bike trails and outdoor fitness areas, encourages residents to get out into the fresh air, enjoy nature and be active. This is a big tick in the fitness category!
The development by Sotogrande SA is built around the Village Centre, a space for the community to come together. It features incredible facilities for fitness and relaxation, including an outdoor pools, a kids’ pool, beach sandy pool area, a crocket lawn and a playground area for kids.
The development will feature renewable energy sources to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and all the properties are built to comply with the highest energy efficiency standards. The properties will also feature the latest home automation systems to increase energy efficiency and make living in them as comfortable and convenient as possible.
