About Lola Fryer
I am from Jaen, Spain and Ed from St. Augustine, Florida. We met in Jaen during “Semana Santa” (spring break) long ago. We live in Texas.
Lola Fryer purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Lola Fryer chose Elviria
We always knew we wanted to have an apartment in Spain and fell in love with this one because of the high quality facilities and tranquil surroundings while still being so close to shopping, restaurants, beaches, cultural attractions, and our favorite activities—Ed playing golf and skiing, and I playing tennis.

Perfect place with everything required for a relaxing holiday. Excellent facilities kept us all busy. Didn’t want the stay to end. One of the few the whole family want to go back to in the future.
That is a great thing to hear!! so glad you all enjoy it!!we will love to have you again in the future!
Beautiful area with first rate accomodation!
We thoroughly enjoyed our month long stay at the apartment. Weather was moderate but perfect for walking, golfing, hiking and sight seeing. There is so much to do and see in the area, with great restaurants, beaches, golf, something for everyone. I would highly recommend it!
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy you enjoyed it!! that's exactly what we love about it!! we hope we see you again!
Stunning apartment that is home from home!
This was our fourth year holidaying in Lola and Ed's beautiful second home and so we knew exactly was to expect and as usual, wasn't disappointed.
It has everything you could want and need in a holiday home including golf clubs and tennis rackets in case you want to venture onto the beautiful golf course that the apartment over looks. My Husband and kiddies (aged 11 & 7) did this often and I took my daughter to play tennis too. We can never fault the apartment which is always incredibly clean on our arrival, has a TV and free WiFi which with kiddies, is a godsend.
There are a number of pools to choose from and our particular favourites this year was the Island pool and the heated pool which is up to the left of the balcony as you look out.
We highly recommend dining at the El Soto Clubhouse which has great 2-1-2 evenings on Steaks and fish & chips plus a great overall menu including Breakfast/kiddies menu. The entertainment there is also great which includes tribute bands, English Singer Zoe Louise whom is amazing and Flamenco dancers which is mesmerising to watch.
We cannot wait to return in the future so thank again for allowing us to share you Spainish home.
So glad !!! Thank you for your review again!!
El Soto (Elviria)
We stayed 10 nights at Lola's apartment at El Soto (29/07/18 - 07/08/2018. The apartment was nice and clean and well layed out with nice views over the golf course. The 4 swimming pools were all nice with varying sizes and well maintained. The kitchen was a good size with everything you needed to be able to do some home cooking if you wished. A car is definately required unless you are planning to stay on the urbanisation with just an occassional taxi down the hill to get supplies. The 9 hole par 3 golf course is quite good and usually very quiet too. Down the hill at Elviria there are numerous places to eat along with 2 supermarkets (Supercor and Supersol, with Supersol having a better choice and cheaper) The El Soto clubhouse is also quite good and offers good food at reasonable prices too, they also provide entertainment quite a few nights of the week (would suggest you book a table if you want to sit outside) Overall we enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend Lola's apartment if you are looking for a relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle

Thank you for your review!!
Super complex. Pretty, spacious, safe and also very relaxing.
We really enjoyed our stay here. A home from home apartment with beautiful views. Well equipped, super broadband which my kids loved!! Due to the design of the building it was great being on the 1st floor. We fully utilised the 4 lovely pools, tennis court, gym and excellent onsite restaurant.
I would also add the service from the management company was efficient and very helpful.
Thank you for your review!! We are very glad you felt like home and had a relaxed vacation for all of you!! That’s always our intentions.
comfortable well equipped apartment
Enjoyable week in this well equipped comfortable apartment which is well located to explore Andalucia. The local management team were excellent in their reception arrangements, response to some minor problems in the apartment, etc.
The El Soto development was rather disappointing - the "golf course" was in fact a short pitch & putt course ; the gym / spa was in need of refurbishment (worn, poorly functioning gym equipment & sauna / steam rooms unavailable) ; there was no heated pool. The Sunday carvery in the restaurant was good value with plentiful, freshly prepared vegetables.
Thank you for your review. As per the golf course we do have in our description that it is an executive golf course, which at least in the USA means "a three par golf course". I guess we will have to made that clarification on the description. As per the state of El Soto, we hope it was just temporary and I will make sure to pass your opinion to our community president. Thank you again for your review! people who tell us what it needs to be improved are appreciate it!!
Enjoy the Sierra de las Nieves natural park. It is located in the rural hills behind Marbella. The park covers an extensive area of 202 km². This mountainous area has a rich variety of flora and fauna.The park was declared a National Hunting Reserve and by UNESCO declared a Biosphere Reserve.There is an activity for everyone there!
Amazonia Adventure Park, a treetop Advanture Park just located 5 minutes from the apartment.
Many different Themes Parks around Marbella area.
The old town of Marbella is a typical small Andalusian town with narrow streets,white walls and a town square called the Orange Square with cute boutiques with hand made clothing and jewelry, local cafés, restaurants and bars where you can shop and relax. The old castle wall and the Cathedral are worth a visit. If you go the second week of June, make sure to visit the Marbella 'Feria' or Festival.
If you are a tennis lover, we are 3 minutes from Hofsaess Tennis Academy! If you are a golf lover, we have our 9 hole par 3 golf course on site, but there are many other courses less than 15 minutes from the apartment like La Cala Golf Resort and Golf Academy. The apartment is also also 3 minutes from the Deutsche Schule Juan Hoffman.
