Elviria has long been a popular holiday resort. One of the many reasons is for having one of the best stretches of beach on the Costa del Sol. It is situated 6 km east of Marbella centre and it sits between the urbanisations of Hacienda Las Chapas and El Rosario, in an area known as Marbella East.
Elviria, as many of the resorts along Marbella, is divided into two geographical areas: a beachside and a hillside location. Both areas have a commercial centre. Here you will find several supermarkets, local and international restaurants, pizzerias, snack bars, beauty salons and beach bars, including the famous Nikki Beach Club.
There are two international schools in the area, one English and one German. The Costa del Sol Hospital in Marbella is located within 5 minutes' drive. It is the largest on the coast and is well known as one of the Costa's highest quality health centres.
In Elviria there are two golf courses, Santa Maria Golf & Country Club (18 holes course) and Greenlife Golf (9 holes course). A third golf course, El Soto, a 9 holes, par 3 course is only five minutes away, situated in La Mairena.
Elviria is home to many luxury developments and urbanisations, most of which offer an elevated position overlooking the Mediterranean. This area has become quite exclusive and increasingly popular for second homes for many foreign visitors seeking a luxury property in Marbella.
In the hills above Elviria, rising some 450 metres above sea level, we find La Mairena, which sits on a plot of over 2 million m2 of land filled with protected cork trees, oak trees and natural countryside. La Mairena offers a spectacular setting with amazing views over the valley, the golf courses and out to the Mediterranean.
La Mairena is ideal for anyone seeking peace and tranquility, less than 10 minutes away from the best beaches of the Costa del Sol.
Sur Estates has a great selection of bargain and distressed resale properties as well as discounted new developments and bank repossession properties for sale in Elviria and La Mairena, which include studios, apartments, penthouses, townhouses, building plots and villas to cater for all tastes and budgets.
