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 Marbella area

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.

10 out of 10

  • 5 of 5

We give beautiful Villa Serenity 10/10 for the perfect holiday destination. We enjoyed a 2 week stay as a family group of 7 adults and 5 children aged 3 to 10. We met with the owner Friedrich who was very helpful in dealing with any questions we had about the Villa and the area. The Villa is spacious and very well equipped. The garden/outdoor space is magical, very private, secure and not overlooked. We spent most of our time in the garden and the children loved the garden swings and pool which was made safe by a pool guard. There is a communal pool and park area very close by and there are 2 supermarkets at the end of the street where you can buy fresh meat, fish, fruit and vegetables to cook on the BBQ. The Villa’s location is just a short taxi drive to Marbella and Puerto Banus where you will find many shops, restaurants and nightlife. The beach is a short 10 minute walk away with a variety of beach bars and restaurants serving delicious fish dishes. Our holiday exceeded all of our expectations and we would highly recommend Villa Serenity.

Fabulous stay:)

  • 4 of 5

The property is fantastic, a beautiful house that is fully stocked with all the home essentials you might need and more! The owners were very quick at replying to any queries and were happy to advise on local attractions/trips available. We were travelling with two young children and the pool fence was great, it meant that we could relax while they were playing in the garden area. The house is stocked with lots of garden toys and games for children (and some grown up ones too!) The owners had thought of everything:) The only thing we requested another stair gate for the property and the owners ordered one for us immediately so it arrived within a few days:)

We travelled at the beginning of June so the pool was still a little cold so would be good if there was the option of heating it for stays 'out of season'...although, you have access to the community pool nearby and it is a nice temp!

Supermarkets at the end of the street and restaurants/bars not too far away. There is a lovely square in the centre of elviria (it is walkable but might be too far for some) and there is a nice sandy beach not too far away with plenty of sunbeds for hire.

All in all, we had a fantastic holiday and it was our first time doing a self catering holiday and we will definitely be doing it again!

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your beautiful villa...it's a fantastic base to explore the surrounding area!

Owner's Response: We always do our best to stay in contact and make our guests feel at home and comfortable. Sadly we lost a star regarding the temperature of the pool. This is really out of our hands and we do are clear on the advert that the pool is not heated. We will try to take this into consideration in the near future. Gladly you could enjoy the big community pool, which also has a baby pool.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfect for a large family gathering. The pictures do not lie. In total we were 12. We had four children under two and half. The garden was perfect for them to play in, lots of shade for them and many sunny areas for the grown ups. It was wonderful that every family had their own bathroom and plenty of space to be either together or occasionally alone. There was never a shortage of crockery, cutlery etc which made it easy to cater and plenty of equipment for the little ones. The location of the villa is also great. There are two supermarkets and the bottom of the road and plenty of restaurants within walking distance, which had a variety of different types of cuisine. It is also possible to walk to the beach. Our hosts were very helpful and supplied us with lots of useful information. We can't recommend it highly enough.

Perfectly named ....?

  • 5 of 5

I went to Serenity with 6 girlfriends to celebrate my 50th birthday. The villa was wonderful it was lovely to relax by the pool and we had a fabulous time. The villa is really comfortable and tastefully decorated with everything you could need for an enjoyable holiday. The 2 supermarkets were so handy. We went to Marbella on the bus which was really easy and cab home was 17 euro we also had a fabulous meal out in Puerto Banus cab fare back was 28 euro. There is a lovely cocktail bar which you can walk to from the villa. I would definitely return.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. The taxi rates are normally the same, it always depends on the traffic. During summer months, already beginning at the end of May there is an increase of tourism and traffic. We have bought garden side tables for the hammocs, we felt you needed them.

Perfect relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week at Serenity. Six adults and two children (2 and 5 yrs).

The BBQ is great and we stayed in most nights for dinner - which is unusual for our family.

The house is well equipped and very comfortable.

Couldn't fault the garden it's lovely and very secure - everyone loved the swings and the artificial grass. The weather behaved as well - sunny and early 20s - just one wet day.

The only issue was with the pool which isn't heated and was very cold so we couldn't really use it much - but we knew this when we booked.

There is a bus stop at the bottom of the road and a couple of us went to Marbella for a few hours while some others went off to Gibraltar. We visited Puerto banus for lunch as well. We had a couple of 'menu del dia' lunches at Chateau Briand which was great value for money.

Having the supermarkets so close was very handy too.

We had a truly lovely week at serenity - just relaxing and eating and drinking.

Thank you

Very peaceful and relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property in a very peaceful

setting. The Villa is very tastefully decorated throughout and we had a very comfortable stay. The surrounding area is fantastic with miles of glorious beach with dozens of chiringito's to choose from. Also really useful was the two supermarkets which are around 80 metres from the property. We were met by the very friendly owner (Friedrich) who talked us through everything we needed to know and made us feel very welcome. I would have no reservations in recommending this property to anyone who likes to have a relaxing holiday in a peaceful location.

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. Food markets and bus in 500m radius
