The Elviria and El Rosario urbanisations are located a short distance from the N-340 coastal road, within easy reach of Marbella. Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport is 30 to 45 minutes away, via the N-340 dual carriageway or alternatively on the AP7 toll road.
Thanks to their strategic location close to Marbella, some of the Costa del Sol’s finest beaches and all the area’s modern amenities – yet being surrounded by countryside – both Elviria and El Rosario have proven to be highly popular destinations for foreign buyers looking for a holiday let or a home in Andalucía.
El Rosario’s architecture varies from one side of the road to the other. While a high proportion of beachside properties are apartments, across the road and away from the Santa Clara Golf Club you will find mainly villas with large gardens. Elviria features numerous villas, but the higher up the hill you go the more apartment complexes you will come across.
Of the two urbanisations, El Rosario has more amenities on site, including a popular beach and Santa Clara Marbella Golf, an 18-hole, par-71 course designed by Enrique Canales Busquets and inaugurated in 2001. The course is set against a backdrop of stunning scenery close to the sea, and has a magnificent clubhouse.
Also close by is Royal Tennis Club (formerly El Casco), including a restaurant offering an excellent choice of international cuisine in a pleasant setting. The El Rosario area has a diverse range of shops and basic amenities, with the famous Los Monteros five-star hotel not far away.
