Situated around ten to fifteen minutes from central Marbella and Puerto Banus, Elviria is a popular spot for Costa del Sol visitors and expats seeking a relaxed life in the Mediterranean sun. Largely a residential area, it’s attractive for its distance from the busy city and its proximity to the golden coastline. As Elviria is so close to Marbella, it makes a perfect location for those wishing to dip in and out of the glamorous city life.
As well as this winning feature, it offers much in the way of amenities and entertainment. It is also close to some fabulous sporting facilities, namely the abundance of high-quality golf courses and two prestigious tennis clubs. There are a giant sports centre and sports pitch close by for all the family to utilize when exercise is required.
Long-term residents favour Elviria
For those looking to take up long-term residency in the area, there is an international school and the Costa del Sol hospital. Aside from the many permanent expats here, many choose Elviria as their favourite location for a second home or a holiday home on the Costa del Sol.
Elviria is incredibly relaxed, making it a peaceful home for many; here you can find an abundance of townhouses, villas and apartments to suit all living preferences and budgets. Most places have at least a shared pool, if not a private one; a necessity, we think you’ll find, when the heat of summer kicks in.
Elviria’s bars attract plenty of expats who get together to replicate a typical British pub atmosphere – in some, at least. There need be no fear of missing out on such home comforts! If you see fit, you can while away the whole night here, but you’ll probably be asked to leave around 4am! Not a bad innings, in our opinion.

There is a lot of well-tended greenery around Elviria, with beautiful trees lining most streets; this is especially so around most of the villas and apartment buildings, so you won’t be too detached from nature in this suburban sanctuary.
