About the Owner

I live in Scotland with my wife. We use the apartment for much of the year - it is our second home - but we make the apartment available for friends and guests during the summer. We have made many friends in Spain and have really fallen in love with the country.

We had a fabulous week in Elvira. The apartment was beautiful and exceeded all expectations. Wonderful views from the terrace and great restaurants to be had just a short drive away. Will definitely be coming back. Once again many thanks for all your help.

Had another amazing holiday in this lovely , well equipped penthouse apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is part of a well manicured complex with lovely pool area and has a quiet relaxing atmosphere. We always hire a car which is preferable to access beaches and local attractions however there are excellent taxi services in the village square. We do often enjoy the walk to the village which takes 10 to 15 minutes.

The apartment has everything a family requires with regards to accommodation and household amenities.

The balcony area is a real sun trap with excellent views of Gibraltar and North Africa on a clear day . The main balcony area has comfy wicker seating and there is a table and chairs in the other balcony section for outside dining. If shade is required there is an remote controlled awning which covers the main balcony.

The main bedroom has a very handy walk in wardrobe and its en suite has a walk in shower and double wash basin.

Bed linen and towels are changed weekly whilst the apartment is also cleaned.

The apartment can be accessed via stairs or lift and there is outside parking and an underground garage area .

Most apartments have difficulty in accessing terrestrial British TV .There are some sky channels and a useful DVD player . We didn't go on holiday to watch TV but used Sky News and DVDs to keep in touch with the world and for entertainment.

Overall a fabulous holiday was had in a lovely Penthouse Apartment.

Beautiful apartment. Tastefully furnished, quiet with stunning views. Exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was immaculate, very well equipped and maintained to a very high standard. The information supplied by the owner from our initial booking was excellent, and the agent, Coral, was extremely helpful throughout our stay. The information provided on the app by the owner was particularly helpful.

This is a quiet area approximately 1 mile from the centre of Elviria, but does feel longer in the heat - some days reaching 36 degrees. We generally called a taxi in the evening, but these were cheap and available. There was a good variety of restaurants and the standard of food was very good. The bars however do like to pour very large measures of gin!

This was our first visit, but it certainly won't be our last. We had a very relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings and we would have no hesitation in recommending it.

Fantastic place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Having previously stayed in this property before and on returning this time I was not disappointed in the high standards that have been constantly maintained. The apartment has all the home comforts required to ensure a fantastic relaxing holiday. Communication with both Rod & Coral the agent was excellent as always. I would have no hesitation in recommending the apartment at Colorodo Hills.

September in the sun

  • 5 of 5

First time staying at the bottom of the hill as we generally tend to stay in El Soto, but we weren't disappointed. The property is as good as it sounds, we couldn't fault it, it was above standard for cleanliness and presentation. The location is easy to get around with a hire car, and the beach at El Rosario & Hippo bar are just perfect. Would happily recommend to family & friend and will certainly look to book again next year.

From the Owner

We love Elviria because of the fantastic facilities in the area. There are some beautiful beaches with a great range of bars and restaurants in the local village. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Malaga airport 45 minutes drive away.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Malaga at 27 Miles Nearest Barpub : Elviria Centre at 1 Miles Nearest Golf : Santa Maria golf Club at 1 Miles Nearest Train : Fuengirola at 13 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Elviria Centre at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Elviria at 1.4 Miles Car: recommended


The best beaches on the Costa del Sol are genuinely less than 5 minutes drive away, with miles of sand and gentle warm bathing. These offer excellent beach bars, chiringuitos, sunbeds, up-market beach clubs including the renowned jet set destination of Nikki Beach, as well as more secluded areas. The yacht harbour of Cabopino is also nearby.


Malaga airport is 45 minutes (40km) away. Car hire is recommended but not at all necessary.


Elviria shops, bars & restaurants are 1.6km away and the nearest beach 2.4km.

The apartment is well situated to explore white villages of Andalucia and the famous historic town of Ronda, perched on a high plateau (2500 ft above sea level), all are within easy driving distance. Seville, Granada and Gibraltar can each be reached within 2/3 hours. In addition other popular locations such as Puerto Banus, Benahavis and Mijas are a short drive away.

Further Details:

As well as the picturesque fishing and yachting marina of Cabopino close by with many bars & cafes, there is an abundance of excellent, fish and meat restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. It is a 10 mins pleasant downhill walk to the shops and 15 or so great bars and restaurants of Elviria. If you prefer, the journey back can be undertaken by readily available and inexpensive taxis. The Marbella area has world class facilities, restaurants, shops, nightlife, fitness, sports, health and beauty clubs plus more than 20 quality golf courses. Attractions for families and thrillseekers include parasailing, Tivoli World, Aquapark, Natura Aventura, Buggy Safaris, Zoo and Funny Beach. Malaga itself offers walking tours, galleries and the renowned Museo Picasso. In addition whilst the apartment is well situated for many popular locations, it sits amongst low-rise residential villas and offers quiet walks and peaceful tranquillity. Please email with any questions and we will try and give you the information you seek.
