I can never be sure where the above area starts & finish. Can the forum user please guide me in the right direction.

Riviera del sol is quite distant. I would say that Elviria extends to app. Artola, then (direction Fuengirola) there is Las Chapas, Cabopino, Calahonda then Riviera del sol. Riviera begins about where the run down shopping centre El Zoco is. Google maps would point it exactly.

I wouldn’t buy there but there are many who like it. Very British with lots of British bars. Some pockets are ok. and some run down, it is quite a large area.

I have no problem with the British living there. In so far they are the socially educated one.

I have a place in Elviria / Las Chapas at Los Jardines de Santa Maria Golf. My view as a Brit is that the area is very convenient for everything. Commercial centre, beach, restaurants, golf and a short car journey to the large centres.
We spend a great deal of time there with our young children so it is always school holidays and therefore the busy time of year. We don’t find it too bad, in fact the really busy time is two weeks in August when the area is flooded with Spanish who also own a lot of property in the area. There is a mix of nationalities at Los Jardines but the vast majority are English speaking, British and ROI, old Elviria (up the hill) seems to be more German/Swedish/Dutch. So all in all a good mix in the area. The Spanish Tapas bar in the commercial centre is always very busy with all nationalities and run by Spaniards.
We’ve owned there for about six years and if I had my time again I would buy there again, and would recommend to anyone.

We lived in Elviria for about 10 years and I still think it is the best area, best beaches too. I think in residential areas at least 50% are spanish professional owners. On our street the figure was approx 90% spanish residents, Doctors, Lawyers etc.
