The Costa del Sol region
El Mirador is situated on the Costa del Sol in the Andalucia region of southern Spain. It is in the village of La Mairena, a short drive from Elviria, with its soft sandy beaches. Elviria is an upmarket suburb of Marbella and has many bars, restaurants and some 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. Elviria is 6 miles (10km) east of central Marbella and 35 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 Mirador itself is set in the hills above Elviria in an area of outstanding natural beauty amongst evergreen cork oak groves. The apartment is reached along a picturesque road that meanders up into the hills above Elviria, and has a large terrace with panoramic views over the landscaped gardens towards the Sierra de Mijas mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. 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 from the complex.
It 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 Mirador is its perfect location on the Costa del Sol, so close to everything but where you can relax in beautiful tranquil surroundings with stunning sea and mountain views, with the beaches and attractions of the coast just a 10 minute drive.
