Elviria is a small community located about a fifteen minute drive east from Centro Marbella/Puerto Banus and 40 km west from Malaga Airport. This is one of the coast’s most prestigious residential locations and is therefore well equipped with services, amenities and entertainment facilities. Many properties for sale in Elviria have been built within walking distance to the beach which is well known for its natural sand dunes and clear waters. If not close to the beach other properties are walking distance to golf many with panoramic sea views.
There are two golf courses here, Santa Maria and Elviria Hills. Santa Clara, Marbella Club, and Rio Real are all golf courses within a ten minute drive towards the centre of Marbella. The El Casco Tennis Club is five minutes drive away and is fully equipped with modern sports facilities, as well as a popular restaurant and bar.
Heading up the mountain behind Elvira you will find El Soto and La Mairena. This really is a stunning location, a UNESCO World Heritage site in fact where building control is extremely strict and views of the surrounding Golf, Pine Tree forests and the coast are pretty much a guarantee.
There is a main centre to La Mairena, including a German school, restaurant and Tennis Club but it is impossible to live here without the use of a car or taxi.
Cabopino, the coast’s smallest and quaintest Marina is located in between Elviria and Calahonda (Mijas Costa), with one of the best family beaches on the coast, some excellent eateries and cafes, and some wonderful villas. Property prices here have really held their ground, as have rental yields. If you are wishing to be walking distance to basic amenities, a stunning beach and Marina, then this is a great place to start your property search! However, a car is essential when living/staying in Cabopino, as there is no supermarket or other general amenities located in the Marina itself, so a journey to nearby Calahonda or Elvira will be needed for the daily/weekly shop etc.
