Let the games begin!
The 2016 Olympics begins in Rio tomorrow – one of the most exciting, widely-celebrated sporting events in history – has it really been four years already?
The athletics extravaganza will be sure to inspire the less active among us, so we thought we’d show off a handful of our clients’ properties near some fantastic sporting facilities.
The following are not in podium order, they all get a gold medal from us!
