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.

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.

Large villa suitable for extended family

  • 5 of 5

Excellent villa providing everything needed for an enjoyable stay in Elviria. Garden is lovely in the evening, although would be better in the summer as the pool isn't heated.

Urlaubsdomizil mit Niveau

  • 5 of 5

Bereits zum zweiten Mal haben wir unseren Urlaub in der Villa Serenity verbracht. Als wir das Haus betreten haben, sehr herzlich von Alexandra und Friedrich empfangen wurden, fühlten wir uns gleich zu Hause. Wir unterhielten uns noch, da hörten wir schon die Kinder Billard und Airhockey spielen. Den sehr schönen Garten mit Pool, Tischtennisplatte und Weber Gasgrill haben wir intensiv genutzt. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt, nichts hat gefehlt. Ein toller Urlaub.

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'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.
