Apartment overview - owner's description

Luxury 3 bed/3 bath penthouse in hills behind Marbella. Gym, sauna, tennis courts, pools, 9 hole golf course. 10 mins beach/restaurants/shops.

This luxury 3 bedroom/3 bathroom duplex penthouse apartment is set on a complex boasting gym, sauna, jacuzzi, steam room, tennis court/padel court, pools, a 9 hole (par 3) golf course and putting green. Kids club in holidays (golf, tennis, swimming).

It is situated in a very quiet area in the hills above Elviria, Marbella, yet is only 10 minutes by car from beaches, restaurants and shops. It has panoramic views of mountains and the sea. NB Phase 1 apartments at El Soto are much more spacious than those in Phase 2.

Great for golfers, surrounded by top class golf clubs, with free 9 hole course on site for practice. Pool immediately beneath apartment, but free use of any pool on complex.

The views are fantastic, sea and mountains.

Extra information
The apartment is fully air-conditioned, set on two floors with the master bedroom complete with marble fireplace and galleried ceiling, occupying the top floor. The living area is spacious and light and furnished in a high quality contemporary style. There is wifi, a Smart tv, stereo, DVD and UK satellite channels. There is a fully fitted and equipped kitchen with ceramic hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, and a separate laundry room with washing machine/tumble dryer. The bedrooms have large fitted wardrobes finished in dark natural wood with classic Moorish filigree panelling. The bathrooms are beautifully finished with a hydro massage bath in the master bathroom and separate dressing room.

The lounge and master bedroom open out onto beautiful tiled terracotta terraces with stunning views overlooking the Marbella coast line. They also overlook directly onto the pool and beautiful gardens. There is an underground garage with lift access to the apartment.

Local area information
Local area information: Elviria is one of the most prestigious addresses in the Marbella area, 30 minutes from Malaga airport and 15 minutes to the centre of Marbella. There is a shopping complex with supermarkets, chemists, shops and banks. The local beach is acknowledged to be the best in the Marbella area with golden sand and good beach restaurants. El Soto de Marbella is located in Elviria Alta, high up in the hills overlooking the coast, yet only 8 minutes from the beach. There is a professional tennis school and many top class golf courses nearby. El Soto overlooks La Cala golf club with some 30 other excellent golf courses within a short distance.

Typical Spanish white villages such as Ronda, Casares, Mijas and Istan are within an hour’s drive from El Soto through some of the most spectacular & breathtaking mountain scenery you can find. The pretty village of Benahavis, which has some of the best restaurants on the Costa del Sol, is just 15 mins away by car. On your way there you will pass through a delightful gorge, woodland and mountain streams. There are around 30 golf courses in the surrounding area all are of a very good standard. The long hours of sunshine that the Costa del Sol receives has established the region as firm favourite for holiday-makers and golf enthusiasts. Of particular interest for families is one of Europe’s largest Animal Reserves, Selwo, just 15 minutes drive away. Here you can enjoy a full day of African adventure for adults and children by either walking or taking a tour in a four-wheel drive vehicle. Also nearby are aqua parks, sea-life centres, boat trips, water sports, cable car rides and markets – the market at Puerto Banus Bullring every Saturday is a must. Probably the most famous part of the area is the "Golden Mile" where luxury yachts are moored at the Puerto Banus Marina. The coastline, full of natural splendour, and its various blue flag beaches range from huge expanses of golden sand to hidden coves with secluded beaches. The majority of the beaches feature small open-air bars & restaurants called chiringuitos where you can find a selection of fresh fish and is usually good value. Andalusia is so remarkable that you can even enjoy Skiing in the Sierra Nevada mountain range near to Granada in winter months while sunbathing is possible on the coast! El Soto is situated on a nature reserve where wildlife and walks can be enjoyed.

Family from Surrey, United Kingdom Aug 2016

A wonderful apartment and holiday area. The property itself was outstanding with everything you could wish for and more! The property is well equipped with super efficient Wi-fi, air conditioning and everything to hand, there is truly nothing to fault. Also great communication with the owners, their agents and Clickstay.

We loved the underground parking and lift access, pools a plenty with easy access to all of the pools on phase one, we always had sunbeds available, all set in beautiful gardens which are well kept and maitained.

There is a cut through to the club house across the golf course making it a comfortable 5 minute walk away and all the sports facilities were easy to book and always available. The club house served great food and very reasonable prices and also sold bread to order!

With easy access to some lovely beaches, restaurants and supermarkets we cannot recommend both the apartment and area highly enough. We would recommend Benahavis for canyoning and rock jumping and visiting the local markets and Puerto Banus. The owners have a handbook of areas and restaurants which was really informative. Would recommend hiring a car as there are so many areas to visit and the complex itself is up a long and windy hill which, in turn affords spectacular views from the apartment . The photos do not do it justice.

Above all we cannot stress enough as to how lovely the apartment is, you truly will not be disappointed, great space, storage, equipment, furnishings,balconies, BBQ etc. etc. A real pleasure to stay there and would suit every need from small to a larger family group, you truly could not ask for more.We would not hesitate to recommend it and hope to return!

Photos dont do the property justice. Plenty of room for six persons, kids loved the pools, we loved the master bedroom. no complaints

From Welling, United Kingdom Aug 2010

Athough the property is out of the way, in the hillside, we where provided with an excellent contact for taxi service and used this on several occasions, a car is highly recommended to get about.

the apratment itself is lovely and decorated to a high standard extremely spacious with an amazing master suite and 2 sun terraces. there are plenty of pools to use around the complex and the complex was not very busy in in peak august so we usually had the pools to ourselves.

i would definately recommend this apartment as the owner is lovely and nothing was too much trouble thanks for a wonderful stay
