Holiday Marbella Location
El Soto de Marbella Resort is situated on the Costa del Sol in the Andalucia region of southern Spain. It is in the village of La Mairena, a 5 minute drive from the sea and sandy beaches at Elviria. Elviria has many bars, restaurants and night clubs as well as the usual range of supermarkets, banks, chemists and other shops. It also has the world famous Nikki Beach resort at the 5 star Don Carlos hotel. It is 10 minutes east of the centre of Marbella and 30 minutes west of Malaga airport.
Marbella, which has grown from a small whitewashed fishing village, is nowadays one of the most cosmopolitan places in southern Europe. Its historical old town has a Moorish flavour with narrow streets and tree-filled squares that are decorated with flowers and with the scent of orange blossom. The magnificent climate boasts the greatest number of sunshine hours in Europe. This, combined with the soft sandy beaches bathed by the Mediterranean, the beautiful marinas, the exclusive shops, amazing amount of golf and leisure activities, make it a unique place for a short break or long holiday.
El Soto itself is set in the hills above Elviria in an area of outstanding natural beauty amongst evergreen cork oak groves. The apartments have large terraces with panoramic views over the landscaped gardens towards the Sierra de Mijas mountains and the Mediterranean. On clear days you can see as far as the snow-capped mountains of the Sierra Nevada to the North and to Gibraltar and Morocco to the South.
Within the secure gated complex are sub-tropical gardens, lakes and a 9 hole golf course. There are also 6 swimming pools, tennis and paddle tennis courts, gym, putting green, pro shop, golf academy, steam room, sauna, hot tub and a restaurant with stunning views over the lakes and golf course. All of these facilities are free to use for Holiday Marbella guests.
El Soto is an ideal base for exploring the inland delights of Andalucia with its Moorish influenced white villages or ‘pueblos blancos’ such as Mijas, Istan, Ojen and Casares. Granada, Seville, Cordoba and Ronda are also definitely worth visiting. Gibraltar is a great day trip and it is possible to make the short hop over to North Africa by ferry or hydrofoil to Morocco.
The beauty of El Soto is its perfect location on the Costa del Sol, so close to everything but where you can relax in beautiful surroundings.
