About Martin

My wife and I are French, we bought the apartment from an English couple. They were the first owners of the apartment from 2004. We intend to use the apartment as much as possible when isn't rented, as we are both retired.

We live near Versailles, Paris, France.

Martin purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Martin chose Elviria

We speak English and Spainish , and we particularly love Andalousia , which we have been familiar with for many years . When we decided to buy an apartment on the Costa del Sol , in the very best position between the sea and the mountains we did not hesitate to choose Los Jardines, Elviria.

Location and security are good.

The beaches are very beautiful and chid-friendly.

There are plenty of interesting places to visit within a short distance.

What makes this apartment unique

There are lots of sporting activities on offer in the area, including golf. We were particularly impressed with the decor and comfort that the previous owners chose for the interior decoration.We think it's a home from home feeling.

We have chosen a local agent with a good reputation. Therefore, during your stay, any problems or question you might have will be dealt with efficiently.

There are also numerous restaurants in the area where the apartment is located.

Very nice apartment in lovely Elveria

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very well equipped and clean and situated in the very nice location of Elveria. We used the pools most days and always found the sunbeds available.Our bed was very comfortable and we appreciated the efficient air conditioning especially on the hotter days and nights.

Philippe was very obliging and helpful pre our arrival and we would consider staying again in the future.

Our only complaint was in finding the estate agents offices to collect the keys for the apartment and which was closed on Saturdays which was the day for both our arrival and departure. The directions map supplied was not detailed enough so we recommend a better map or better system, e.g. why couldn't we collect or leave the keys with the on site security guard .

Overall however we did have a very good and enjoyable holiday.

Regards and thats to Philppe.

Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This flat is well appointed and decorated. A comfortable living - dining area. The balcony is very sunny and shade is provided by the electric sun blinds. The furniture on the balcony is of a high standard. Kitchen is well supplied if you wish to cook in the flat. Beds are comfortable and plenty hangers in closets

This quiet complex is well taken care of with beautiful gardens. The 3 pools mean there is no over crowding.

We would definitely recommend this apartment to our friends and family .

We hope to return ourselves.

Lovely Apartment, Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

I had a very pleasant stay at Los Jardines. The apartment is very comfortable and has everything you could need. With just a short walk to the beach, shops and restaurants, Los Jardines is a well established development, in an excellent location and with lovely pool areas and well managed gardens. Booking with Philippe couldn't have been simpler. Thank you.

Vakantieverblijf in Los Jardines

  • 5 of 5

Ons verblijf van 2 weken was zeer relax en aangenaam. We hebben genoten van het mooie appartement. Het was er zeer netjes en verzorgd en we hadden ook niets tekort. Vooral de aangename zithoek met gemakkelijke zetels op het terras waren voor ons een groot pluspunt! Ondanks het feit dat het winter was hebben we toch dikwijls in de zon kunnen zitten. De omgeving van Elviria is ideaal voor een leuke vakantie! Je vindt alles wat nodig is rondom het complex van Los Jardines.

Our stay of 2 weeks was very relaxing and pleasant. We enjoyed the nice apartment. A very neat and clean appartment. We had all that we needed. Especially its pleasant seating area on the terrace with easy seats were for us a big plus! Despite the fact that it was winter we could often sit in the sun. The area of Elviria is ideal for a fun-filled holiday! You'll find everything you need around the complex of Los Jardines.
