From the outstanding tapas, stunning baroque cathedral and flamenco dancers of Cadiz city, to the seemingly endless golden sands of the beaches along the southern and western borders of the province of the same name, Cadiz is one of southern Spain’s most exciting destinations. Cadiz province is also home to some of Spain’s most attractive and challenging golf resorts and it is this combination of superb golfing facilities and proximity to beautiful beaches that has inspired leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España’s latest development. Emerald Greens is located in Cadiz’s prestigious San Roque Club, providing buyers with an enviable combination of spectacular views of both the golf course and the sea. The two and three-bedroom homes will be built in three phases, with the first 24 homes already under construction. Each building of eight apartments delivers three storeys of accommodation: ground and first floor apartments, plus duplex penthouses, with underground parking and a storeroom included in the purchase price. The development features Taylor Wimpey España’s signature blend of stylish interiors, spacious outdoor areas and communal pools and gardens. Interiors are designed around open plan and ‘total living’ concepts, with spacious living areas and terraces integrating indoor and outdoor life seamlessly. In addition to the golf course setting, Emerald Greens is surrounded by corn oak meadows, with 70% of the plot dedicated to a private meadow for residents’ enjoyment. Footpaths weave in between the trees, with benches dotted around for residents to rest in the shade when they want to pause in their exploration of the natural beauty all around them. The value of Emerald Greens’ peaceful setting is not to be underestimated. A recent survey from Tots to Travel found that it takes 46 hours and 42 minutes for the average Briton to relax when they go on holiday. Given that the average holiday length for Britons travelling overseas has dropped fairly steadily (from 9.8 days in 2011 to 8.9 days in 2018), losing almost a quarter of your holiday before you are able to unwind seems like a terrible waste. Having instant access to a private meadow where modern life can just melt away is bound to help advance the relaxation process. Relaxation is also top of the agenda at Taylor Wimpey España’s other Cadiz province site: Pier. This private gated community offers fabulous views over La Marina de Sotogrande. Apartments range from two to five bedrooms, with high-quality specifications, large terraces and underground parking and storage. Pier also features a select number of penthouses with private solariums. Communal pools and garden areas add to the luxurious site’s attractions. With greenery and water all around them, it is only fitting that both Emerald Greens and Pier should respect the natural environment as far as possible. As such, Pier is supplied by thermal solar energy, while Emerald Greens; hot water is produced by solar panels, with an electric heater in place as a backup. Pier features thermal and acoustic insulation, with a natural ventilation system. Emerald Greens, meanwhile, boasts the most effective thermal and acoustic insulation available on the market.
