About Alexandra & Friedrich Landgraf

We are a family of 3, German / Spanish / Mexican, who love the nature, soft music, reading, great food and of course travel. We used to live in Mexico for many years and decided to leave the big city to return to our roots. We decided on Marbella because most of my family comes from Málaga.

Both of us began with an insurance agency about 12 years ago. There is nothing better than having freedom and being independent.

The villa has something 'magical', which we felt from the first day we saw it. The oaks (cork trees) are beautiful, they give us privacy and a nice shade for hot summer days.

The terrace is our favorite place, where we barbecue and spend long days and nights enjoying its ambience.

It gives us great joy to share our little world with you.

Alexandra & Friedrich Landgraf purchased this villa in 2006

It was great!

  • 5 out of 5
We spent at Villa unforgettable 3 weeks in September.
Everything in the villa was great and we all enjoyed it. We were of 3 generations: from 3 to 83 years old, and everyone found on their liking, incl. great choice of toys, billiard, board games, TV channels, WiFi; no one was bored. Description and photos of the villa are fully coinciding with reality. Fully equipped kitchen. There is even a sauna downstairs for those who like it hot. Obviously, the owners of the villa decorated it for themselves with love and with the same thrill trying to keep it in perfect conditions now.
The convenient location of the villa allowed us easily and quickly reach the beach, restaurants, pubs, zoo, water park, shopping centers, airport. Two supermarkets are within walking distance. We also managed to visit Puerto Banús, Gibraltar, Tarifa and other interesting locations. Three weeks of vacations have flown by like one day, because we feel like at home. Nothing could disappoint us, even a noise of flushing water through the walls in adjacent bathroom. Despite deep September, to the last day we continued to enjoy a clean Villa pool, as well as great open municipal heated swimming pool in 2 minutes’ walk, access to which was kindly granted to us by Alexandra and Friedrich. Thank you for wonderful time once again!
Highly recommended.

Perfect holiday home

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Serenity is well named as it is just serene.
The spacious accommodation & facilities are excellent situated in a great location with the beach & local amenities close by. It is particularly suitable for families with children of all ages with lots of toys & games equipment provided. We had the most relaxing holiday ever even with a lively infant on board. Highly recommended with easy communications with the owner we cannot wait to return soon.

Villa Serenity we miss you!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in Villa Serenity in June for a week and we had such a wonderful time. Let me start by saying that from my very first email enquiry to our final goodbye Alexandra was a joy to deal with. She made everything so easy and nothing was too much trouble. By the time we met at the villa it felt like meeting an old friend.

The Villa
The villa looks amazing in the photos and it doesn't disappoint. In fact it's even nicer in real life. The garden area is so well laid out and looks magical in the evenings when the lights are all lit. There is plenty of shade and yet there's always a spot in the sun. The swing in the tree is such a nice touch and was my favourite part of the whole garden. Alexandra has thought of everything and even had the garden swings set at the right height for my 3 kids. I thought initially that was just lucky but knowing Alexandra now and her attention to detail I figure she had a hand in it. She even had books in the bedrooms for the girls appropriate to their ages. The kids were so excited to discover a large press on the outdoor terrace full of games and jigsaws. We used to lay out towels in the shade for them to sit and play games or read. The kitchen was really well stocked and had every utensil you could ever need. There is also a drawer full of spices which was really handy for the barbecue. There was a Wii downstairs with loads of games which the kids used in the evenings. The only thing we needed that wasn't in the villa was a stair gate but they came back that evening with one for us. The beds were extremely comfortable with big silent fans overhead with a dimmer light in the centre. The balcony off the main bedroom was huge and had 2 lovely loungers. It was a great hiding place from the kids! The pool was cold but it was early in the season when we were there. It didn't stop the kids getting into it anyways. There was even a paddling pool which was a big hit with my 3 year old who refused to get into the big pool..

The Area
We used the Japanese restaurant in the village centre for takeaway a few times and found it really good. The Opencor supermarket in the village also had amazing bread and pastries. There are 2 supermarkets right beside the villa as well. There is a small playground next door to the villa and a larger one beside the communal pool around the corner. Villa Serenity is the perfect choice for families with young children. Thank you to Alexandra and Friedrich for an amazing holiday..

Owner's Response: We loved that you stayed with us, because we felt the joy you felt to arrive at the Villa, your home in Marbella. Thanks for sharing your experiences with others, you sure know how to plan a fantastic vacation and for taking so much care of the house.
Villa Serenity has in its decoration and garden so much of ourselves,through its paintings, sculptures and ambience. A piece of latin America and its artists gathered together in Marbella.
We will always wellcome you with open arms.

Great Vacation in Fantastic Villa

  • 5 out of 5
Just ended a 10 day vacation in the beautiful Villa Serenity. The villa was spacous, well maintained and well equiped. We didn't miss anything at all. Location was perfect. The owners, Alexandra and Friedrich, were very nice and helpful. All in all we had a great vacation and the Villa actually exceeded our very high expectations!

Great holiday!

Very pleasant accommodation that makes you feel at home abroad. We (family with 6 adults and 4 kids) have enjoyed the stay. The house is fully equipped and the garden was a great playground for the kids.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We have just come back from an amazing 2 week holiday at Serenity with our family and everyone was very sad to leave.

Alexandra and Friedrich were on hand for any queries and were so genuine and helpful, and their home is truly lovely with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, beautiful gardens and all the amenities you could possibly want. It exceeded all of our expectations, so much so my Partner proposed to me on the Upper Terrace as it was so romantic!

We didn’t really have to leave the Villa at all, but the beach was only a 10 min walk with the Supermarket at the end of the road supplying everything you could possibly want and a great Indian Restaurant nearby and a small intimate Music bar.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Serenity to all our friends and in fact can’t stop talking about it.

Chris Ellis, Paul Hughes and Family from England.

The beaches on Elviria are one of the best on the Costa del Sol. You will find beach restaurants along the beach called 'Chiringuitos'. They can provide hammocks and parasols. Water sports are available. The beach is within 10 minutes walking distance. You may want to visit the famous marina Puerto Banús (15 km) or the beautiful Centre of Marbella and the fantastic shopping mall called La Cañada (both 8km). There are several Golf courses nearby. Interesting one day tours could be to Ronda, Malaga, Frigiliana, Gibraltar, Nerja and Tarifa for people who love kitesurfing. The villa is located in an upscale residential area with trees. The community gardens can be used. There is a Waterpark called Aquapark (15 km) The common areas include a large swimming pool (20x10m) with separate children's pool, 2 paddle courts and a spacious landscaped playground.
