Los Jardines de Santa Maria — Elviria

Where are we?

The Jardines de Santa Maria complex is situated in the village of Elviria just off the A7, a coastal highway, that sits between the mountains and the sea and links all the resorts between Cadiz and Gibraltar to the West and Nerja and Malaga to the East.

You are just 30 minutes from Malaga airport and only minutes away are the lively towns of Marbella and Puerto Banus. Both towns are elegant with their tree-lined streets and designer shops.

For those that like to live life in the fast lane, the fabulous Nikki Beach facility at Hotel Don Carlos is open from April to September each year – THE place to be seen!

With the apartment centrally located near Marbella, sightseeing is so simple. Within easy reach are the renowned cities of Malaga, Cadiz, Ronda, Cordoba, Granada, and Seville.

Gibraltar and the famous Barbary Rock Monkeys and Dolphin Cruises are a mere 45-minute drive.

Venture a little inland and explore the many white villages such as Casares, Gaucin, Mijas and Benahavis. Or take a trip to Ronda to its ancient Bull Ring (the oldest in Spain), Arab Baths and breathtaking gorge.

Elviria boasts numerous sandy beaches for family fun.

For families, there are numerous sandy beaches in the Elviria area and within easy reach – most have beach bars and restaurants. Nikki Beach, Golden Beach, Playa de las Chapas and Rosario to name but a few, not forgetting to mention the fabulous beaches in Marbella itself.

For fun days out there are water parks, wild life parks, zoos and a marine adventure centre very close. There is also mountain biking, jeep off-road safaris, go karting, tennis, windsurfing, surfing, sailing, water skiing, jet ski …

For those who like therapeutic thermals, why not take the unforgettable trip to Alhama de Granada (90 minute drive) where just outside the northern outskirts of the village past the Rio Alham is the balneario (hot springs) surrounded by natural views. The outdoor hot springs just outside the hotel are free; however, the hot springs in the hotel offer a heated 25 metre thermal swimming pool as well as several indoor spas and other therapeutic treatments. In Carratraca, a small town a little over an hour's drive through the near beautiful Sierra Blanca mountains in Sierra de las Nieves natural park, is Hotel Villa Padierna which offers splendid spas and other treatments and both places are very reasonably priced. In Malaga in the old Jewish quarter you have ancient Turkish baths at your disposal. Closer to home you have the splendid five star Incosol hotel (5 minutes by car) for local relaxing massages and hot stone treatment, and then why not relax under a parasol by their outdoor “heated” swimming pool after a trip to the steam room or sauna. There are many other beauty spas you can visited easily. Ensure you book before heading off as they can be extremely busy.

The breath-taking scenic views of El Chorro are only a little more than an hour’s drive away into the Sierra de las Nieves National Park.

Just think of an activity and it is very near to you every day of the year!
