About Alexandra & Friedrich Landgraf

We are a family of 3, German / Spanish / Mexican, who love the nature, golf, 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.

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

Why Alexandra & Friedrich Landgraf chose Elviria

Because it is a beautiful villa with lots of separate ambiences for large groups.

You will enjoy the barbecue in the evenings, the pool during the days as well as the nice walk to the beach, which is only 1000 meters from the villa.

We have at only 500 meters fantastic restaurants with menus for 9,50 Euros all inclusive (french, Spanish Tapas, Indian and chinese)

What makes this villa unique

A unique ambience with decoration from around the world, at walking distance from the sea, restaurants, beach, gym, spa, golf courses, supermarkets and bus stop.

Fantastic experience from arrival till we left

The villa

Is outstanding we stayed for a week in October and it was perfect for a large family holiday. The extensive gardens had something for everyone the lovely heated pool , swings and toys for the kids and of course the table tennis proved a real hit with the guys who had a daily tournament . The glass covered outdoor area was perfect for evenings . We would like to say a big thank you to our hosts who were so helpful and welcoming and even stopped to give my daughter and her boyfriend a lift into Marbella.

The best Villa we have stayed in

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is perfect! The owners are wonderful people who were so helpful and just lovely people. The Villa has everything you could want or need Kitchen equipment, spices, mosquito spray, beach towels, hairdriers, soap and shampoo to name just a few, there are lots more. There is a Lidl and Mercadona right at the end of the road which is about a 2 min walk. We loved the convenience of this and would go first thing to Lidl to get pastries freshly baked for breakfast then rolls to take for lunch on the beach then steaks, meats, fish for the BBQ in the evening. The community pool can be used all year round but you would need to take your own chairs or lay on towels on the grass, it's a lovely pool though. The pool at the Villa is perfect, it's heated so we would use it every day, they were also some pool floats/toys. The beach is an easy walk across the road via the bridge in front of the Mercadona then to the left and first right, all the way at the bottom of the track is an orange beach cafe where loungers are €5 each for the day.

We got the bus into Marbella one evening for €1.18 each then got the catamaran across to Peurto Banus for €8.50 each. We got a taxi home that evening from Puerto Banus for €23. Our friends went to the local Italian restaurant and also the Chinese Resturant, both of these were to the left at the end of the road infront of Mercadona and follow the road around to the left. At the end bear to the right. On our last day Alexandra took us to the Beach Club Estrella Del Mar after recommending we spend our last day there before our flight. It was a perfect day for just €39 including lunch and lively Alexandra even picked us up again afterwards, so kind!

Thank you so much to both of you for letting us stay at your beautiful Villa and for making us feel so very welcome!

Owner's Response: Thanks for this review. I think it is even better as the pictures because of the ambience inside and outside and all the open sky Tv channels, pool, air hockey and soccer table, as well as the adult swings and ping pong table at the garden. And now that the pool is already heated everything is complete for you to enjoy.

Simply the best.

  • 5 of 5

First of all, if you're reading reviews to see whether this villa is for you, the answer is YES! Book your stay right away and you will 100% not regret it.

We knew our week was going to be amazing as we were welcomed in by the owner of the villa. All 9 of us were blown away by the contemporary interior and overall look of Villa Serenity. I could list a whole bunch of lovely words to describe the decor of this place, but it must be seen with own eyes to truly understand just how wonderful it is.

First thing that made us smile was finding out that we have access to a communal pool. All you do is grab your key for the gate, your towel and some sunscreen. You walk 5 minutes down the street - and voila! Do not underestimate it, it is clean, the surrounding area is tidy, it's safe (there's a lifeguard there), there's a separate kids pool and toilets. So I recommend that you check it out if you stay here.

Villa Serenity is in a convenient location with a LIDL and a Mercadona supermarket at the end of the street. Villa is clean, it is very secure, beds are comfortable, there's an easy to use coffee machine in the kitchen, pool table and table tennis will keep everyone entertained and if not the tv's have a crazy amount of channels so it's impossible to not find a channel you'll love.

We are very grateful for the service we received from Alexandra and her husband. They were so easy to communicate with. Any questions we had were answered, great advice was given about which places we should visit, anything we needed they would help us right away and they even had a surprise prepared for us for a special birthday anniversary! We cannot thank them enough for looking after us as they did! They were absolutely fantastic hosts!

This review could become an essay if I was to write about our wonderful holiday experience in full. It was the first time we stayed here, but I feel like it is not going to be the last. Keep up the good work, we loved every single minute of our stay at Villa Serenity!

Very well equipped,spacious and comfortable villa. Garden shady which is great for children but a little too shady for adults. Little further from beaches and restaurants than expected. Would really recommend a car. Owners on hand for any queries or requests they are very friendly and happy to help. Overall we enjoyed our stay. We were a party of 8 adults and 3 children

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Sorry you found the garden too shady, the pictures are very explicit and although you cannot sit all the time on one spot, you are able to sit where the sun is during the day, because we have 12 hammocks and rocking chairs in different spots of the garden. The distance of restaurants are, as specified before your book, already at aprox. 500 meters and the beech at 1000 meters. We put our best effort meeting our guests expectations, also before they arrive, to make their stay unforgettable, for instance installing the pool fence for the safety of the little ones and comfort of the parents. We will try to cut some of the branches. These trees give a magical and unique touch to the property and during the night, with the lights, it is a delight. Thank you so much for writing this review and giving us a chance to improve.

Fantastic villa in great location suitable for large family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

We like to holiday as an extended family and villa Serenity was perfect for our needs. Our party consisted of 7 adults and 2 children aged 6 and 4. The villa provided plenty of space allowing for communal activity (especially in the extensive garden area) but also enough areas for personal time if required. The children really enjoyed their time in the pool although it was a bit cool for some of the older adults. There were plenty of sun beds around and also shaded areas. Other facilities such as table tennis and swings provided much amusement. One of our favourite areas was the terrace which opened out into the garden, very relaxing and the perfect place to enjoy family meals. The villa was equipped to a high standard with everything you would expect to find. I would say it was very much a home from home.

The villa is located in Elviria and is very close to 2 supermarkets easily within walking distance, ideal for fresh bread and croissants for breakfast. There is also a communal park nearby which has a larger pool and a children's pool. The local beach is also within walking distance.

We usually holiday in self catering villas and I have to say that Alexandra and Friedrich made the booking process very easy, were very welcoming and provided all the information we needed. Thank you so much for letting us share your corner of paradise.

Hope to see you again in the future
