The district of Elviria has developed around the iconic building of the 5-star Don Carlos hotel and has evolved to include a broad range of property, facilities and services, whilst still retaining a healthy percentage of green spaces in the form of protected cork oaks, sand dunes and woodlands. A number of golf courses in the area add even further greenery.
The main road N-340 cuts through Elviria and so provides easy access by car and public transport. The main commercial centres are located at each side of the main junction and are home to many bars, restaurants, shops, banks and supermarkets. The area serves as a crossroads from the main road east to west and the residential areas to beach road north and south and so the huge range of businesses and services in this area is a major draw to populations outside of the immediate area too, especially in the summer.
Elvirias coastline is renowned for cleanliness and quality hotels and restaurants attracting visitors throughout the year, particularly families and holidaying visitors during the summer. With the world famous luxury Nikki Beach resort located at Don Carlos hotel and a number of similar establishments nearby, the area witnesses an influx of celebrities in summer and with mooring facilities just off the shore for numerous exquisite yachts, it can prove to be quite a ‘secret’ regal destination.
Away from the coast, residential property development has been thoughtfully constructed to include all property types; Santa Clara and Santa Maria Golf being two of the most popular developments including golf courses. Nearby, is the renowned Marbella International College as well as a school in neighbouring El Rosario, so the area is popular amongst younger families too.
Heading further north in Elviria is rewarded with stunning views to the mountains, Marbella centre to the west and the Mediterranean Sea. A snaking road winds up the mountain towards El Soto and La Mairena, urbanisations high away from the coast, the route to which awards increasingly amazing views of the coastal curve towards Gibraltar and, on clearer days, across the sea to the Atlas mountains of north Africa.
