1. The Location:
The first big plus distinguishing this area is obviously the short distance to the international airport of Malaga, the shopping centers of Marbella and Fuengirola and, for boat owners, the proximity to the port of Cabopino.
The slogan of Marbella Viewings is “Life is so much better in the sun.” This actually represent the dream many expats have, when they move to the Costa del Sol: around 320 days of sunshine per year, the best beaches, beachclubs, five-star hotels, sports and leisure activities, glamorous Michelin restaurants, world-class events and much more.
Obviously it is important to have business opportunities even in this place of leisure, that’s why the Costa del Sol attracts especially real estate agencies, constructors, investors and big hotel groups such as the Marriott’s and others. Tour operators and travel agencies are very well distributed and the main economical activity is based on the service branch and constructions.
The Costa del Sol is famous for its world-class tennis players, some of them having their own tennis schools. Even Paddle Tennis is widely spread in this area and if you want to meet new people in mixings and tennis events, you will have the chance to do so. The International Davis Cup is hosted in Marbella, in the prestigious area of the Golden Mile. Marbella Viewings offers a great selection of properties in this area, from apartments and penthouses to townhouses and stunning modern luxury villas.
Elviria is also a great place to live for golf lovers, offering 2 high-level and very well-known golf courts: Santa María Golf (an 18-hole golf course) and Greenlife Golf (a court with 9 holes). The ideal seasons for golfers is the spring time, when it’s not raining too much and the sun turns every day on the golf court into a pleasure.
6. Hiking and Nature:
For those who love hiking in nature, Eliviria offers a very special place: the Amazon Adventure park. Not only you can walk around it or organize idyllic family picnics in the middle of nature, kids and adults can also explore the park climbing up the trees and moving around on the funny zip lines.
Elviria has plenty of high-level restaurants to offer, from Spanish cuisine to exotic dishes you can find everything. We recommend the Mediterranean kitchen of the restaurant El Lago, or the traditional Italian restaurant San Martino with an impressive pizza oven and delicious varieties of homemade pasta.
This pueblo is famous for its excellent German School, which attracts expats from not only German speaking countries. But not only, you can also reach other high-class international schools such as the English College and various Scandinavian schools within 10 minutes by car.
The main hospital of the Costa del Sol is located only 10 minutes drive from Elviria. Other private clinics like the Ochoa, known for its high standards and excellent structure, are only 15 minutes away.
The best views and the most intimate contact with nature is just a short drive away from you: La Mairena is not only a beautiful mountain, settled right behind Elviria, it is also one of the most sought-after areas to buy a property in. It offers many well-traced paths for mountain biking and hiking and once you’ve reached the top you will get a completely open panorama over the hills to the sparkling Mediterranean sea.
As you can see, Elviria is a very good option when it comes down to choosing a place to live on the Costa del Sol. If you have more questions about Elviria, its infrastructure, its lifestyle or the property market, get in touch with us.
