Las Chapas, Marbella East
| 10th Feb
Right on the eastern tip of Marbella municipality, the district of Las Chapas is a popular residential area with a healthy mix of nationalities, ages and property types sealing its continual and wide-ranging appeal.
Straddling the main A7 dual carriageway, Las Chapas covers a large area on the mountain side as well as on the beachside between Elviria and Cabopino, and it’s just a few kilometres from the border with Mijas municipality. Its position makes Las Chapas a really convenient base for both permanent living and holidays.
Elviria, just a couple of minutes away in the car, has an impressive selection of amenities including restaurants, supermarkets, banks, offices and sporting facilities. To the east, Cabopino port (within walking distance along the sandy beach next to the beautiful dunes) is well known for its super selection of restaurants, chiringuitos and bars.
Many parts of Las Chapas are covered in pine and oak trees, making it a very attractive and pleasant area to walk around with less density of housing in comparison to some of the other more built up local areas. The urbanisation of Hacienda las Chapas is a particularly green and peaceful location made up of individual villas and luxury townhouses. Many of the properties enjoy the stunning country, mountain and sea views that draw people to East Marbella. In addition, Hacienda las Chapas is well respected for its privacy, tranquillity and security, which attracts families in particular.
For example, this luxury south facing four bedroom family villa has been built on a 2,000m2 plot and is surrounded by a private pool, mature garden and pine trees, creating an oasis of calm for its owners. Its spacious interior is clean and bright with up to date bathrooms and kitchen requiring no redecoration. It has a generously proportioned living area with fireplace, dining room, two bedrooms on the ground floor and a master suite and guest room upstairs on the first floor.
The family atmosphere of Las Chapas is further enhanced by its excellent selection of schools and nearby sporting facilities. Colegio Las Chapas is a bilingual school authorised by the Junta de Andalucía and leading the way in combining technology and teaching for its pupils. Other schools in the area include the English International School, ECOS, Colegio Alborán, the German School and the Instituto Dunas de Las Chapas.
For adults and extra curricular activities, Las Chapas is surrounded by the prestigious golf courses of Santa María and Cabopino, the Royal Tennis Club Marbella and Marbella Rugby Club.
