A guide to Elviria, Marbella
| 8th Jan
Elviria is a residential area to the east of Marbella that has something to offer everyone! Just ten minutes from the centre of Marbella, this area is an attractive low-density collection of beautiful apartments and villas located in a natural setting of pine oaks and cork running down to some of the loveliest beaches on the Costa del Sol.
Much of Elviria is in fact beachside, meaning that many properties will be just a few minutes walking distance from the sea and the many fantastic beach bars, clubs and chiringuitos for which this stretch of the Mediterranean is known. What is the difference between these establishments? A beach bar will generally serve both drinks and food – indeed, some serve an eclectic mix of Spanish and international food of a high quality, such as Siroko Beach. A beach club will often have its own swimming pool as well as music and quite often a DJ to entertain guests, one of the most famous being Nikki Beach based at the exclusive Don Carlos Hotel. ForSpanish culture lovers, the chiringuito is a must visit. This traditional beach restaurant serves traditional Spanish dishes with an emphasis on seafood! A great place on this stretch of the beach is Chiringuito Laurel for all the local favourites such as paella and deep fried fish.
Over the main A-7 coastal road is the inland area of Elviria and the Elviria commercial centre, where you can find a great variety of products and services, from estate agents to supermarkets to bars and restaurants!
Elviria is a wonderful area for families, not just for the proximity to the beach but also as a permanent home destination. The local state schools are well respected and there is also the option of international private schools, with a German school close by as well as an excellent bilingual one.
