Leticia works in Madrid as Project Manager and whenever she has an opportunity, she likes coming to her apartment “SEA POOLS”, to enjoy the sea and the beach.
She loves sports, especially diving in front of her house, where she enjoys the seabed in Torrevieja which, as she says, “has nothing to envy the Caribbean.” After a good “siesta” she enjoys to go shopping, have a coffee overlooking the sea and go running down the walkway to the Lighthouse, the Harbor and the Promenade.
Torrevieja always fills her with energy because of its nice weather and the brightness of the light, and makes it easier to forget the city problems.
All above is what she wishes to share with people all around the world who want to use their home.
