Eva is moving to Marbella with her husband, Jose, and son, Santiago.

According to sources close to the pair, the couple are moving to sun-soaked Marbella to prevent their child from getting ‘sucked into the Hollywood cycle’.

The lavish pad, which Eva and her husband purchased last year in anticipation of their move across the Atlantic, is equipped with all manner of modern amenities and luxuries, including six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a swimming pool, a cinema room, a sauna and a gym.

In an exclusive interview with celebrity magazine Hello!, Eva said: “I have been looking for a place in Marbella for the past five years. I visited a few places but nothing was quite what I wanted. Finally, in early 2023, this house came on the market. It needed refurbishing, but it had just the size and location I was after”. 

Prior to the purchase, Eva was already well-acquainted with the area, having helped to host the glamorous fundraising galas of the Global Gift Foundation, of which she is an honorary president.

Speaking on her Marbella lifestyle, Eva said: “I don’t have a schedule here. My days are full of activities – padel tennis, the beach, lunch, drinks, socialising…in fact, they’re full to the brim, but with things I really enjoy”.

In terms of essentials, Eva said she ‘wanted a garden for my son to play in, and a swimming pool because he is always swimming’, ‘lots of bedrooms’ and ‘of course, a big kitchen’.

She added that she also loves her ‘amazing’ dressing room which is home to ‘loads of space’. 

The popular and award-winning actress is best known for appearing on our screens in Desperate Housewives as Gabrielle Solis, a wealthy Latina living on exclusive Wisteria Lane.

She also has Spanish citizenship and, in 2022, was given the honorary title ‘Dame’ due to her family roots which trace back to Oviedo.
