About Mirela Matache
I live in Canada with my husband and our 2 sons. We both work and spend our summer holidays for the last 19 years in Europe.
Spain is always part of our trip since it is our first 'love'. We also visit the Caribbean Islands but Costa del Sol offers us sun and memories within reach. This made us buy a property in the area.
