If Marbella town is your point of reference in the area, then there is a ‘West Marbella’ and an ‘East Marbella’. The former is very well-known, encompassing popular areas such as Guadalmina, the little town of San Pedro Alcántara, the Golf Valley of Nueva Andalucía and the marina of Puerto Banús. But there is also a beautiful eastern part of Marbella, which begins just east of the town centre at the exclusive frontline golf residential urbanisation of Río Real.

From here there is a succession of hill clubs, golf country clubs and beachside living east of Marbella, but the epicentre of this region is the elegant resort suburb of Elviria, known for its lush covering of pretty umbrella pine groves. In truth, Elviria extends from the beach all the way up to foothills of the nearby mountain ranges, where it is known as Elviria Hills. There is even an older section with the feel of an authentic Andalusian village, so Elviria offers a great diversity of settings and ambiences.

Not to mention tennis and golf, the latter right on your doorstep at Santa María Golf.
