This is what one of the owners of Villa Real has to say about living in Eco-Residential Villa Real:
“I can tell you that Villa Real is really a life style choice for privacy, and many of us also socialize frequently with friends who are neighbors here. It is a very friendly and international neighborhood. Many people walk in Villa Real and there are also fantastic trails in the undeveloped areas which will always be there. In addition, tennis, swim program, dance and Pilates classes at the Casa Club- and there is a soccer field for residents use. Casa Club is also a great place to host a party if you don't want to have it at home. There is a social committee that plans holiday and other get together so neighbors can meet each other. It is very international but there are also a lot of local families. Our board is well run and participation is welcome or you don't have to if not desired. The staff at Villa Real is very well managed and helpful- it is very safe – in fact security was heightened and is constantly being evaluated. Villa Real is a great place for families; kids are safe and it’s easy to carpool to events- There are many families from CDS Country Day School, which soon will move closer to Villa Real, Lincoln School, Pan American and AIS as well- probably others as well so it is easy for kids to find neighborhood friends from their school.”
