About James

I am a 42 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.

Coast/Beach:

The apartment is a 5-10 min walk to La Mata Beach. This beautiful long sandy beach has held the European Blue Flag for several years and is noted for its cleanliness, water quality and safety.

A 5 min drive will take you to five more lovely beaches around the large town of Torrevieja.

The pine forest enclosed, long, sandy, beach at Guardamar del Segura is only a 15 min drive.

The acclaimed healing properties of the natural mud baths at Lo Pagan are only a 30 min drive down the coast.

Travel:

La Mata is ideally situated between two major airports. Alicante airport to the north is a 35 min drive. Murcia airport (San Javier) to the south is a 30 min drive.

Car hire is convenient but not essential, as there is a bus stop directly opposite the apartment (La Mata-Torrevieja Bus route C), which runs every hour from October-June, and every 30 mins from July-September.

The main bus stop is on Church Square in La Mata Centre, and buses to Torrevieja & Alicante are every 20 mins.

Distances:

Parc Natural de La Mata (15 min walk) - walk or cycle around the large salt water lagoon.

Torrevieja is 4.7km (10 min drive) - enjoy a fun packed day at The Aquopolis Water Park.

Benidorm is 115km (1hr 10 min drive) - home to Terra Mitica Theme Park, Terra Natura Safari Park & Mundomar Aquarium.

Further Details:

There are a wide variety of restaurants in La Mata:

El Italiano - a delightful Italian on the beach front at the bottom of Calle Soria.

Xu Palace - a fabulous Chinese, with a large choice of excellent quality food & stylish decor (by the roundabout on the N332).

For curry lovers there is a great Indian Restaurant (all you can eat buffet!) just off Calle Helena in C'tra del Torrejon (2 min walk). You will also find in this area several cafes, bars & restaurants, newsagent (selling English papers), small supermarket, chemist, bank, internet cafe, car hire & telephones.

There are many good restaurants and bars in La Mata Centre around the main Church Square near the beach, and also on Avenida de los Europeos.

There is a bustling street market in La Mata on Wednesday mornings on Canal del Acequion, where you can grab a bargain - clothing, leather, sandals, handbags, fruit & veg, etc. Alternatively, venture into Torrevieja town for the Friday market.

Other leisure activities include:

Horse riding (El Refugio) by the salt lake.

Go-karting at Playo Flamenca (15 min drive).

Lovely clean apartment

  • 5 of 5

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.

Once again a lovely stay in this well kept apartmt

  • 5 of 5

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

Great clean apartment

  • 4 of 5

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.

Apartment in La Mata Ref: 8031018

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment - it was spotlessly clean and very central

to restaurants and shopping. There was also English T.V., which

was a bonus for News, etc., if needed.

We would certainly go there again.
