Elviria – Marbella East
One of the most popular parts of Marbella is the green, leafy district of Elviria. Set to the east of the town, it is rapidly becoming known as the town’s up and coming area and has proved to be popular both with families looking for the relaxed Marbella lifestyle with all necessary amenities close to hand, and with those looking for a second home.
It is easy to understand why when taking a closer look at Elviria—the allure of the sandy beaches is one of the first attractions of this sought after area, with the protected Artola dunes providing a natural backdrop to wide golden beaches and a fine selection of beach clubs—including the trendy Nikki Beach at the Don Carlos resort.
Another reason for the popularity of Elviria is the fact that it truly does offer something for everyone, from the five-star leisure facilities of the Don Carlos and nearby Vinci Estrella del Mar resorts to the lush fairways of its golf courses and selection of fine restaurants offering international cuisine.
Parents appreciate the proximity of highly regarded educational facilities like the English International College and the German School in the inland enclave of La Mairena—itself part of Elviria—while children love the Aventura Amazonia adventure park where they can scramble though the tree tops.
Quality golf course in Marbella
Lovers of golf are looked after at the well established Santa María Golf Club, which offers 18 challenging holes as well as an expansive driving range and outstanding clubhouse with snooker and sauna facilities, a bar and restaurant. Here too is the location of the bowls club of the same name, which has long been one of the most popular on the Costa del Sol.
Just inland from here is the sought-after urbanisation of Elviria Hills, set around the attractive nine-hole par three course of Greenlife Golf. The latter is also home to a popular golf academy with a thriving children’s section. For those who prefer dining to putting, the clubhouse restaurant—El Lago—is one of the best in Marbella and the proud possessor of a Michelin star. More sporting options are available at the Hofsaess Tennis Academy, with an indoor sports centre, completing the range of facilities available in Elviria.
