Marbella is situated on the Mediterranean Sea, between Málaga and the Gibraltar Strait, in the foothills of the Sierra Blanca. The municipality covers an area of 117 km² crossed by highways on the coast, these are its main entrances.
Marbella East includes the areas of Los Monteros, El Rosario, Las Chapas, Marbesa and Elviria
Los Monteros is about 15 minutes driving from Marbella, and is home to the region’s main hospital. There are both beachside and mountainside developments here, including a few famous residences – such as that belonging to Antonio Banderas.
Las Chapas, together with Los Monteros, is a very prestigious area to buy a property in. It is very green, and the villa plots are large, offering a natural location with lots of privacy. There are also some lovely gated developments on the hillside for sale with sea views.
El Rosario is an urbanisation that has grown over the years becoming a very sought after area for buying private villas with excellent local facilities, including an international school, tennis club, restaurant and beauty salon. Just down the road are white sandy beaches and a selection of excellent beach bars.
Elviria is 5 minutes drive from El Rosario. With its two supermarkets, doctor, banks, restaurants and bars, Elviria provides everything a holidaymaker or resident needs. The area holds the challenging Santa Clara golf course as well as the world famous Nikki Beach bar. The beachside of Elviria is very exclusive and properties are hard to come by, but Metta Estates has its nose to the ground for anything new on the market here.
Cabopino is a few minutes drive from Elviria. This is a very popular, small but prestigious marina. It has a number of excellent restaurants and it’s beach next door has been made a protected area due to the wild sand dunes behind it. Metta Estates has some great value townhouses and apartments for sale close to the harbour.
