There are a number of reasons why Elviria is one of Marbella’s most popular neighbourhoods among international residents. For a start Elviria is a sun worshipper’s paradise, as it boasts what many claim is the best stretch of beach on the town’s coast, offering crystal clear water and palm tree lined, sandy, golden beaches. However, if soaking up the sun is not your cup of tea then those with a penchant for the fairway will be pleased to know the area is a global golfing haven. Elviria boasts two championship golf courses, The Santa María and Santa Clara, with many more within striking distance.

Those who love nothing more than to explore the countryside will also be suitably impressed with the magnificent mountain scenery that serves as a backdrop to the area. Here you can go for a hike, explore on mountain bikes or even try a spot of paragliding should you feel brave enough. Tennis aficionados, especially paddle tennis players, should also make sure they play a game or two at Elviria’s El Casco Tennis Club, where regular competitions are organised. In addition, the luxurious and ultra chic beach club, Nikki Beach, adds a touch of glamour to the local beach scene. Nikki Beach is a bit of an institution in Marbella, where many of the town’s socialites go to relax, enjoy live music and sip cocktails in a stylish poolside setting. It’s a great place to do some celebrity spotting too, as only last weekend Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria and American rapper will.i.am were seen letting their hair down at the club following a fundraising event in Marbella. If you prefer simpler pleasures, there are a great many ‘chiringuitos’ (beach bars) to explore along this stretch of coast. Elviria also serves up more water sports than you can shake a snorkel at, including scuba diving, sailing, paddle surfing, kitesurfing and the state of the art water propulsion system, the Jetlev. The area is also very child friendly, with two water parks, a zoo, theme park, go-karting track and jeep safaris within a short drive. It is home to some of the best international schools as well as shops, banks, fine dining restaurants, bars and spa facilities, while La Cañada, Marbella’s largest and most popular shopping mall, is just minutes away by car. Location-wise Elviria, nestled between Marbella and Calahonda, is within easy reach of all the sights and sounds of central Marbella and Puerto Banús, as well as being just a 30-minute drive from Málaga International Airport. We currently have a great selection of one to three bedroom exclusive apartments, from ground floor to penthouses on Elviria’s beachside. Prices start from as low as 199,000€.
