Its name might speak for itself. Truth is, the Riviera residential area offers an authentic piece of southern living in Masku. The region's great outdoor opportunities and Kuhankuoho's hiking trails detache residents from their routine. The location along the E8 road, on the other hand, ensures that the services are only a few minutes away.

The best location for a residence

The cozy residential area of Riviera is located along excellent transport connections. Both the center of Masku and the services of Raisio can be reached in 5 minutes along the E8 road. Residents of Riviera can conveniently get to Turku in just a few minutes, either by their own car or regular buses.

Tammenahjo school offers lessons for 1st to 2nd graders, and the nearest middle school is at cycling distance from the center of Masku. The nearest secondary schools are located in Nousiainen and Raisio.

Plots for various needs

There are plots in the Riviera area for those who dream of a home near exceptional outdoor opportunities and convenient transport connections. For example, Kajamo's natural plots are located next to the local recreation area. Those who yearn for quiet living should keep in mind that buildings are planned for the Riviera area in the future.

In addition to residential plots, Riviera offers high-quality business plots along fast transport links. A short distance to the port of Turku and the airport make the Riviera an interesting and profitable area. Blocks have been reserved in the vast business area for small industry and office buildings.

Sandy beaches in your own backyard

Riviera is located in an area where sand was mined in the 20th century. Later, the pits were filled with water and developed into a favorite swimming spot for the locals. The sandy beach was playfully called the "Riviera of Masku”, and the name eventually became the official name of the area. Isokivi beach is also a significant spot for seaside activities.

In addition to popular swimming spots, the Riviera's sand pits are also home to many endangered species. In other words, the area is a site of significant natural value. This is where the Kareva loop, part of the Kuhankuono hiking trail, starts. It offers up to 12 km of hiking trails surrounded by swamps and forest forests. In winter, the Riviera area also has more than 3 km of lighted ski slopes.

The area also has, among other things, a frisbee golf course and a beach volleyball court. The Kankainen golf park delights golf enthusiasts right next to Riviera in the Piuha-Pirttimäki area. The Elovena arena, the sports centers and Jarkko Nieminen's tennis courts in the center of Masku also provide an important framework for various activities. Furthermore, Masku's entertaining summer theater also operates in the Riviera area.
