Apartment in La Mata, Torrevieja, Costa Blanca - Peaceful Location, 5 mins Walk to the Excellent La Mata Beach, 5 mins Drive to Torrevieja
I am a 43 year old Architect.
James purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why James chose Torrevieja
I bought this property for the close proximity to La Mata beach, quiet location and for the outdoor pool and extensive gardens.
What makes this Apartment unique
The location is half way between Murcia San Javier Airport and Alicante Airport, making accessibility very easy, especially for visitors from the UK. The board walk along La Mata beach is very pleasant, along with the large salt water lakes that are within walking distance. There are some excellent restaurants within a couple of minutes walk. The close proximity of the mercadona makes self catering very easy.

Think we was the first let of the season as the apartment was a bit musky, but soon cleared with some fresh air. Was met by Chris to hand over the keys, very polite even though we were late back from the airport. The apartment is close to the local strip which has many good bars etc. The local supermarket is just over the road. The apartment itself was very clean and well maintained. Two large bedrooms with lots of storage space for your clothes. Plenty of cutlery etc on the small but adequate kitchen. Lovely gardens at the rear with a nice pool which unfortunately for us was not open yet.All in all an excellent apartment which l strongly recommend & we shall book again.
We have spent a number of holidays here and always have a wonderful time
The apartment is always spotless with every facility available. The gardens are a delight and there is a large swimming pool with a lifeguard on duty.
Thank you for your review and we are very pleased you continue to enjoy your time in our apartment and in La Mata.
Apartment was very well maintained and located 10 minute walk to beach. Plenty of good restraunts and bars around.
Lovely clean apartment
Very convenient to local amenities with restaurants and bars, there is also a supermarket all within a five minute walk.
You can walk to the beach in 10-15 minutes or catch a bus to Torrevieja or the beautiful La Mata.
Would definitely recommend.
Great clean apartment
This is a lovely clean apartment with great sea views from the large balcony. It is close to walk to local bars and restaurants. It is a short walk to the beach. It is on the bus route to local towns torrevieja and la mata. The pool area has beautiful gardens. The owners are great to communicate with and are very helpfull. Me and my husband have been twice and would definitely go again.

Once again a lovely stay in this well kept apartmt
This is our 4th return to this apartment, and we will return again. We always have a lovely stay, from meeting Jose when we get the keys handed over is pleasant and easy. The apartment is situated a 10 minute walk away from the gorgeous La Mata beach. A local Mercadona supermarket is across the road for all your essentials, food alcohol etc.
It's well kept with a comfortable double room. The shower in the bathroom is very powerful and really refreshing. During hot periods the air con in the lounge is a godsend. Many an evening spent on the balcony having a drink watching the sun go down.
While your there make sure to visit "Donde Rodrigo Reataurant" about 5-10 minutes walk. Spanish night is on Friday night with flamenco dancing while you eat your meal in the gorgeous outdoor setting: very reasonably priced, traditional food and great cocktails: www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g187527-d7158794-Reviews-Donde_Rodrigo-Torrevieja_Costa_Blanca_Province_of_Alicante_Valencian_Country.html?m=19904
