This is a beautifully located one bed apartment. Having the beach on the doorstep is definitely a huge bonus (if you forget something it takes about 60 secs to go back and get it!!) The apartment itself will easily fit 4 adults, the main bedroom has one superking bed consisting of 2 single beds joined together and there is a comfortable pull out couch in the living area. (there is also a kiddies blow up bed for that little one extra, if needed) The apartment has just been fully refurbished including new floor and wall tiles, a brand new kitchen and a new bathroom. The terrace overlooks the pool and gets lovely afternoon sun, perfect corner to relax and put your feet up. All bed linen is supplied. It is an ideal holiday for families as the complex, which itself is small, is very secure and the pool has a lovely kiddie section, separate to the main pool. The pool itself is open all year round and is always blue and sparkling clean. The property is lovingly minded by the caretaker and the trees and shrubs are beautiful. The grass area around the pool is perfect for lying out on or sitting in the deckchairs provided. There's no rushing to grab a space by the pool, no matter what time of year it is as many people tend to pop outside to the beach. Right outside the door is Vella Beach restaurant, one of the nicest around (only opened a few years ago) and vella Burger 20mts away for the more casual burgers, salads, chips etc. There is also a little corner shop on the doorstep where you can buy the morning paper, fresh bread rolls, icecreams, sun creams, beach floats and most anything else, very handy! We go every year ourselves, we love the area and are sure you will too!

La Mata village also has many historical buildings, a lovely square with coffee shops, bakery and a lovely church.
Day Trips: Take a day trip out to the island or a day trip on a glass bottom boat viewing all sea life.
Drive to the salt mines, visit vineyards, drive to Cabo Roig yachts and boat marina, lovely harbour (bring bread for the fish!!) and a very nice place for lunch.
Elche Zoo is another place of interest for all the family and is well worth the day trip, swim with the dolphins is a lovely experience in the zoo.

Go Karting also available locally and is great fun for enthusiasts, young and old! Do the grand prix.

The rental conditions would be please respect and enjoy the rules of the pool, they are normal rules (no running, floaties, eating etc) but they make for a very pleasant day by the pool when followed by all. If anything happens in the apartment during your stay we have a local person on call for your assistance and he will also leave information, brochures on day trips, tours, places of interest that you might like to visit. The water park is only a few mins away by taxi and we have details and number of a very helpful local taxi driver left in the information pack in the apartment.

Without doubt the nicest outdoor facility of this property would have to be the award winning la Mata beach, with the pool a close second! La mata beach is one of the nicest around and many people come to be on the beach or to simply walk the boardwalk, which extends for miles. A lovely hour (or two!) can also be spent in the beach hut, drinking sangria or eating ice creams, watching the waves. The chips are lovely here, say hi to Maria who runs the hut with her husband. Also, there is a lovely cocktail bar, in between both restaurants, for a cocktail while watching the waves! 5 mins walk along the beach brings you to the Italian restaurant, which serves delicious pizza. Jets skis, paddle boats and banana boats are for hire on the beachfront but they do tend to be seasonal (July/Aug I think)

The interior of the apartment is very simply and nicely decorated, curtains are of a high quality voile. The shutters are electric. The terrace has a line for outdoor drying if required. The pullout sofa couch is lovely quality for a fantastic nights sleep. There is a large, ceiling fix, electric fan in both the bedroom and the sitting room which is more than enough to cool the apartment down in August as the sea breeze is contantly cooling also (unlike the more inland apartments)
