Elviria has been long reputed as the number one location to stay in Marbella. The flat is under 5 minutes from Nikki Beach and the Don Carlos hotel, and is located on the the third most prestigious golf course in Andalucia, the Santa Maria Golf Course. Elviria was chosen by Nikki Beach for the establishment of their iconic Spanish Branch because of its long shallow beaches but more importantly because it is one of the beaches in the Marbella facing south-west, with the sunset directly over the sea. (most face east and result in having to rotate your sunbed 360 degress over the course of the day to continue facing the sun!
The flat comes with parking so please do rent a car! Surrounding area
Our flat in Marbella is the perfect location for a week or month long stay on the mediterranean. An ideal one week stay could consist of the following:
Day one - Nikki Beach located 5 mins away. Dance on the beach with world famous DJS, class food and irresistable cocktails. Don't make dinner plans afterwards, as the music continues well into the night and leaving Nikkis early is easier said than done!
Day Two - The world famous Puerto Banus Marina (15 minutes away). Again don't plan on leaving early as the port is the place to be both day and night. Here you can see some of the most expensive yachts and vehicles in the world, as well as shop at luxury boutiques such as Tom Ford, Loro Piana and others. The Top rated restaurants are located here!
Day Three - Located just over an hour away, the colonial, historical, controversial, and magical peninsula of Gibraltar (one hour away) makes a perfect day outing. Land on the rock is so scarce one literally has to drive over the neatly situated airport runway to get to town! (somewhat similar to driving over train tracks). A mild exercise day is created should you decide to ascend mountain fof gibraltar, and the hike is rewarded with unforgettable views and local monkeys and other wildlife..
Day Four- Tarifa. This charming medieval Mediterranean town is located at the Cape of the iberian peninsula, where the mediteranean meets the Atlantic. A trip here is rewarded with breathtaking views, and a picturesque sunset.
Day Five - Malaga! Home of Pablo Picasso and Sangria! In Malaga you can visit his home and museum, and eat some of the greatest Paella and Sangria in the world.
The list goes on, you'll probably just end up bumming by the beach and soaking up the sunshine, but if you did manage to make it through days 1-5, then be lazy on days 6 and 7 and enjoy! Or play some golf!
Some evening ideas include the world famous Olivia Valere nightclub (10 minutes from CV), designed as a Plush Moroccan Palace with several indoor and outdoor areas, this place is by far the best nightclub in Marbella. Doors open at midnight and shut at 7 AM!
La Sala is another great restaraunt/lounge/bar, and La Rancha at the Don Carlos is the place to go for a night of Salsa Dancing! Message me for more details based on your individual preferences and I will give you the advice required.
For those of you who are staying for longer than a week, the following trips are recommended:
1- Sevilla (two hours away) - the home of flamenco dancing and bullfighting, Sevilla will not disappoint you with the lack of new experiences!
2- Grenada (two hours away) - home to the Alhambra, the ancient Moorish Palace, a trip here is a trip back to the middle ages!
