Like a touch of California in Europe, Elviria is an attractive residential area that basks in the sun just a few kilometres east of Marbella’s centre. Villas of many descriptions, styles and sizes dominate the area, their leafy roads and subtropical gardens following the gentle undulations of the hills that rise from the beaches towards the sierras some distance inland. Winding your way up the main access road, Avenida de las Cumbres, you pass through this area of private homes on sizeable plots, luxurious apartments, some of the areas best Golf courses and a sprinkling of shops, restaurants and sports clubs. This is a privileged spot on the European map not only for its beaches, cafés and nightlife, but also for the year-round quality of life it offers. With everything from shops, sports facilities and beachside entertainment to international schools, clinics and downtown Marbella on your doorstep, it is the perfect location from which to enjoy what this part of the world has to offer without compromising on peace and privacy. Set amid natural greenery and looking back down towards the Mediterranean, the stylish urbanisation of Santa Maria Village perfectly embodies this concept of tranquillity and accessibility.
