About Diane Mullins
I worked for 22 years in the travel industry which prompted me to fulfill a life long dream of owning a holiday home in Spain.
Diane Mullins purchased this apartment in 2002
Why Diane Mullins chose La Mata
We bought this property because it has a large outdoor private space (unlike many newer builds), has the best pool in the area and is near enough to the beach and restaurants/bars and shops yet still in a quiet area. It is also really handy having an excellent bus service within a few metres.
What makes this apartment unique
Large patio and garden with beautiful flowers and a flowering tree.It is extremely private and the pool is stunning.There is everything you need for a stress free, easy holiday. The flowers and trees are lovely in the shaded pretty gardens which surround the pool.You can also see the see from the pool!
