Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The apartment is on the ground floor with a patio overlooking the marble paved pedestrian walk way. There are other apartments and houses each side and opposite. It has the great advantage of not being part of a block. Some are the permanent residences of Spanish English and German families and others are holiday homes. The area is well lit at night and in the evening families sit outside and children play on the walk way.
From the patio you enter the living /dining area furnished with a large sofa (converts to a double bed if required) , rug, dining table and 4 chairs, dresser with glasses and crockery and TV,Dvd, music system on top. There is an open fireplace to the side. The kitchen area is divided off by a bar and traditional Spanish wooden shelving. The bathroom is off the short corridor and has toilet bidet bath and in- bath shower.
Further along the corridor is the master bedroom with french windows to the small back yard and off the master bedroom is a children's room with two small single beds.
All towels and linen is provided and beach toys etc are in the outside cupboard. Free welcome pack included!
Down steps in front of the apartment is the large shared swimming pool with beautiful views over the sea. It has a sectioned area for children. This is reached through the community gardens. The key to the gate is in the apartment. Just below the swimming pool is the bus stop for frequent, cheap buses to both La Mata and Torrevieja.
Only a few minutes walk from the apartment is a fantastic sandy beach with all amenities but yet tasteful and un-commercialised. The area of beach immediately below the property is ideal for fishing and has a famous fish restaurant overlooking the sea, which is well worth a visit.
200 yards further on is the huge clean sandy beach of La Mata with local restaurants and small beach bars. All along the top of the beach is a pedestrian walkway which is lit at night and goes to La Mata which is a lovely romantic walk.
At the top of the road you have a selection of small shops, tapas bars, restaurants and internet cafes. There is also a new bar and disco across the main road.
Probably not suitable for people with limited mobility as the apartment is above the beach and access is by steps or a short steep hill. There are also steps down to the pool and garden.

About this location
The Valenciana region
Costa Blanca (Valencian: [ Spanish: literally in English "White Coast") refers to over 200 kilometres of Mediterranean coastline in the Alicante province of Spain.
The name "Costa Blanca" was devised as a promotional name used by BEA when they launched their air service (for £38.16s.-) between London and Valencia in 1957. It has a well-developed tourism industry and is a popular destination for British and German tourists.
It extends from the town of Dénia in the north, beyond which lies the Costa del Azahar (Costa dels Tarongers), to Pilar de la Horadada in the south, beyond which lies the Costa Cálida. It includes the major tourist destinations of Benidorm, Alicante, Dénia and Xàbia.
Places to visit and things to do:
La Mata has a huge local market on Wednesday and Torrevieja's market is Thursday. Everything from local food to shoes and carpets are on sale.
Torrevieja has a long marble promenade and is great for shopping for presents. It has a marina and a lovely town square around the church. There is also an Aquapark.
Guardamar is the next resort north of La Mata. It is an attractive holiday destination and has a naturist beach.
Elche has a history that goes back to the Romans as does Cartegena.
Public transport is excellent, frequent and cheap. It is possible to take a bus anywhere along the coast from the bus station at Torrevieja which is about 15 minutes from the bus stop near the apartment
La Mata, Torrevieja
La Mata, officially known as TorreLaMata and sometimes referred to as LaMata and Torre La Mata, is an excellent place for a holiday in Spain and unlike a lot of towns on the Costa Blanca, it still retains a Spanish identity.La Mata, on the Costa Blanca, in Spain
The village of La Mata is a developing tourist centre and one of the more popular Spanish villages on the Mediterranean coast. However, you'll find it's not nearly as commercialised as the Costa Blanca resorts to the North of Alicante. It still retains that special "Spanish" feel and is in a relaxed environment.
You'll also see, that La Mata has learned a few lessons from other tourist destinations, because in La Mata, you'll find no high-rise skyscrapers or package holiday hotels and still retains a Spanish way of life.
The concentration of salt and the temperature, combine to endow this area with a particularly healthy micro-climate, recommended by doctors for its beneficial properties. Bathing in the salt lagoons is also becoming popular for many medicinal reasons. The climate in La Mata makes it an ideal location for year round holiday activities, especially if you want to fulfil that yearning for some sunshine during those dreary winter months in the UK.
On average, La Mata enjoys 320 days of sunshine per year and an average daily temperature of 17°C. Temperatures in July and August are typically 30°C. Many people prefer the months when the weather can be near perfect: April, May, June, September, October and November.
La Mata offers all the typical activities for the holidaymaker and as you go through this website you'll get a flavour of what's on offer.
Go down to the beach at La Mata and walk along the front, at lunch times and in the evenings this area and the surrounding streets are a hive of activity, with many busy cafes, restaurants and bars. These streets also offer many shopping opportunities, plus, the street market is in La Mata every Wednesday morning, (see the market page here for more details).
The area of La Mata, just 5 minutes drive north from Torrevieja, consists of a few different areas - Los Leandros, Cabo Cervera (also mis-spelt sometimes as Cabo Cevera), Aquas Nuevas (also known as Aguas Neuvas), Parque Mar (also known as Parquemar), Pinomar (also known as Pino Mar) and Molino Blanco.
When visiting La Mata on holiday, because La Mata is on the eastern part of the Costa Blanca, be prepared to see some fantastic sunsets.
You may come across different variations on the name of La Mata, like TorreLaMata, TorreMata, Torre La Mata and LaMata, you might even see some people refer to it as La Marta, but they're all referring to the same place, La Mata, on the sunny Costa Blanca, in Spain.

"Fantastic for a quiet, relaxing holiday!"
For the two if us, this apartment was perfect! With views of the sea from the terrace, a well stocked kitchen (although we ate out every evening), a really lovely pool and a short (but steep) walk dow… More
