Many apologies for being late with this the April / May update and photos! We have been very busy helping people prepare for their new property at Corvera as well as continuing to look after our Roda Golf clients. On the subject of Roda Golf (www.rodagolfinfo.com), phase 4 is well under way and the new sports facilities have finally started, as I keep saying, things might be happening a little too slow for us, but they do get done and to the highest standard, please consider this when wondering, and worrying, about Corvera.
Anyway… on to Corvera Golf and Country Club! We are being asked a lot about phase 3. People are concerned about the building licenses, and when the building will start. Well the good news is that the phase 3 building licence’s are expected to be issued within the next few weeks and building will commence on that phase straight away – yes you have heard it before, but I do think phase 3 is about to start before the Summer, the developer is getting ready to press on with it and they are as anxious as you to get it all under way, watch this space!!
Now then, on to all you lucky people who are due to complete, it just gets better and better, the new road to the airport outside the resort really is well under construction, the entrance to Corvera is almost ready and will be in use within three or four weeks, the mail box area is all ready and the communal gardens to the left as you go through the main entrance are now looking wonderful, the children’s play areas with the communal gardens and all the new plants and shrubs looks fantastic. Our car was covered in dust from the massive construction vehicles at work on the access road, and workers were in evidence busily working on the entrance and finishing off at the post box areas.
We counted about 450 ornamental benches that are currently being installed throughout the resort in the communal areas. We were also amazed at the sheer amount of plants and shrubs now bedding in! All of the plants at Corvera are from the local area, so there will be no question of them not being able to survive and they will require very little maintenance.
The PGA driving range and academy are almost complete and the driving range is already very green and lush, you will hopefully see this on the photos that accompany this report, the news is that the PGA golf academy will be open in June and again it looks fantastic. There was so much work going on at the driving range that we were not allowed any closer, but seeing the green grass in the centre of the development was a heart-warming sight!
Speaking of “green” – the golf course is currently being seeded and by the end of May the whole golf course should have been seeded and will be green by the end of July, then we will be getting really excited! There are vast bags of seeds in evidence around the site. The golf course should be available to play by the end of 2009, but I for one will not want it to open before it is good and ready, the back 9 at Roda was opened early due to pressure, and they are still repairing it, so please be just a little more patient – not long now!
The lakes on the golf course are now completely full and really do look daunting from a golfers perspective, the views across the lakes from the majority of phase 1 and 2 properties are fantastic.
A lot of the apartments have now had the name and number plates fitted to the outside of the properties, which means they really are ready for occupation. I was lucky enough to visit a few of the properties, and walk through them, and check them out first hand. Every single one of the rooms I walked through was light and airy with great views. Some will obviously be better than others, but with the patio doors opening right up, it really does bring the outside in – or is it the inside out!? I was very pleased with everything I saw. The ground floor Tilo style properties had amazing terraces and private gardens and a couple of the “frontline” properties had breathtaking views of the golf course and the mountains – I have one of these, so I was very pleased – very pleased indeed!!
Not too much more I can say, just a huge amount of progress from my last visit, much the same as my last report. I hope the pictures will speak for themselves! I would like to add that things are moving on at a great pace, and with a lot of abandoned developments around the world, it really is encouraging that Calidona have men (and women) working around the clock to deliver this fantastic resort that keeps getting better and better!
I am aware that this is a tough time for a lot of people and I do not say that lightly. If you can just hang in there I have no doubt that this will be the golf resort that everybody wants to own property on just a couple of years from now. As we drove around the resort we remarked again and again that this is truly set to be the premier golf resort in Spain, and surely one of the finest golf resorts in Europe. Yet again its big thumbs up for Corvera Golf and Country Club, I hope you enjoy the photos and you find this latest update interesting, I hope it was worth waiting for, and the next report will show A GOLF COURSE!!
If you need any help with your completion of your property at Corvera please just get in touch.
