Local area information
Local area information: Elviria is one of the most prestigious addresses in the Marbella area, 30 minutes from Malaga airport and 15 minutes to the centre of Marbella. There is a shopping complex with supermarkets, chemists, shops and banks. The local beach is acknowledged to be the best in the Marbella area with golden sand and good beach restaurants. El Soto de Marbella is located in Elviria Alta, high up in the hills overlooking the coast, yet only 8 minutes from the beach. There is a professional tennis school and many top class golf courses nearby. El Soto overlooks La Cala golf club with some 30 other excellent golf courses within a short distance.
Typical Spanish white villages such as Ronda, Casares, Mijas and Istan are within an hour’s drive from El Soto through some of the most spectacular & breathtaking mountain scenery you can find. The pretty village of Benahavis, which has some of the best restaurants on the Costa del Sol, is just 15 mins away by car. On your way there you will pass through a delightful gorge, woodland and mountain streams. There are around 30 golf courses in the surrounding area all are of a very good standard. The long hours of sunshine that the Costa del Sol receives has established the region as firm favourite for holiday-makers and golf enthusiasts. Of particular interest for families is one of Europe’s largest Animal Reserves, Selwo, just 15 minutes drive away. Here you can enjoy a full day of African adventure for adults and children by either walking or taking a tour in a four-wheel drive vehicle. Also nearby are aqua parks, sea-life centres, boat trips, water sports, cable car rides and markets – the market at Puerto Banus Bullring every Saturday is a must. Probably the most famous part of the area is the "Golden Mile" where luxury yachts are moored at the Puerto Banus Marina. The coastline, full of natural splendour, and its various blue flag beaches range from huge expanses of golden sand to hidden coves with secluded beaches. The majority of the beaches feature small open-air bars & restaurants called chiringuitos where you can find a selection of fresh fish and is usually good value. Andalusia is so remarkable that you can even enjoy Skiing in the Sierra Nevada mountain range near to Granada in winter months while sunbathing is possible on the coast! El Soto is situated on a nature reserve where wildlife and walks can be enjoyed.
Panoramic views over mountains, sea (to Gibraltar on a good day), beautiful gardens surrounding apartment.
