Bordighera is a walker’s paradise.
With its Argentina’s Promenade, inaugurated by Evita Péron in 1947, is one of the longest of the region with more than 2 km of rectilinear seaside.
Situated as it is on the west tip of the Italian Riviera , which lies between the Ligurian Sea and the mountain chain, Bordighera is a small jewel, the climate here is warmer than in the rest of the country. For the holiday maker, this gives a longer season of enjoyment. The flowers are in bloom the most part of the year, and the green-grey colours of the Olive trees ….are everywhere!
Hill and dale, sea, river, lake… make an ever-changing pattern, with the mimosa's and bougainvillea’s flowers blooming everywhere.
Ours..is a quite, nice and bright apartment beach front, with wonderful sea view, 3 bedrooms, livingroom and kitchen open space,bathroom with hydromassage.
Located very near to the Bordighera railway station (5 minutes by walk) and the shops (2 supermarkets just around the corner), In the heart of Bordighera, that is a nice small village 20 km far from Monaco Montecarlo and the Cote d'Azur (France), 40 km from Nice (international airport).
The bus stop is just down the street, there is a free parking area in front of the house where you can leave the car if you need!
we are only one hour by train from Limone (nice place in the mountain, well-known for the winter sports).
Nearby, you can also find many characteristic and charming small medieval villages in the inlands with Typical food and wine, as Dolceacqua! Or Perinaldo with its astronomical observatory where we oftenly go with friends and kids in the summer evenings to observe the moon...and Jupiter in transit.
For the relax lover.. a good chance is to spend a day in Pigna, and its Spa (25 min by car or by bus)
Moreover, Ventimiglia, with more than 2000 years of history and archeological sites..(museums, cave paintings of Balzi Rossi, roman amphitheatre and thermal baths, Thomas Hanbury's botanic gardens).
Another wonderful place is Rocchetta Nervina, 45 minutes by car or bus, with its spectacular lakes, where you can swim or do canyoing!!!!!
The Mercantour National Park (in France) is only one hour by train or car, a great place where to go in the summer for a pic-nic, or a quite walk.
and..of course, S.Paul de Vence, one hour by car from home, is one of the nicest place in the Cote d' Azur..Chagall, Matisse lived there.
Bordighera is a nice small city on the Mediterranean sea, (in front of us...the whales sanctuary! boats leave from Sanremo-Imperia-Monaco and Nice 2-3 times per week, offering whale watching!) very loved for its calm, its nature, its bland climate and its colours...
Claude Monet lived here...and here did some of his marvellous paintings.

Our experience in Bordighera staying at Lilian’s place was great. It is as close as you can get to the beach, and we easily found free parking (in the white spaces) on the boardwalk and at the train station. We went swimming almost every day, ate at a few of the restaurants on the boardwalk (a nice range of cheap sandwich & pizza places but also finer dining). We also loved exploring the old part of town and had a lovely meal there. Bordighera is close to a lot of great things too so exploring was easy. We went up into the foothills of the Alps (visiting some medieval villages there), visited San Remo, and also Nice, France. Lilian provided a nice breakfast each morning and took care of anything we needed. She and her son were very friendly, but also gave us privacy and space. It was a very relaxing and memorable stay, we would highly recommend it!
Abbiamo trascorso 3 giorni fantastici

Ringrazio Lilian per la fantastica ospitalità e disponibilità. La casa confortevole e l'atmosfera molto carina, mi sono sentita a casa! La posizione della casa è favolosa tutto a portata di mano e devo proprio dire che non potevo chiedere di meglio! grazie
Very comfortable stay, great location, and you can listen to the sounds of sea from the bedroom. I especially enjoyed the conversations with Lillian's daughter, who's major is in history. Thank you again for hosting me, it's been a wonderful experience!
Lilian was a great host! The room was clean and felt like a cool person's bedroom. The location was perfect - right on the beach. Lilian and her son gave us restaurant recommendations and help for our travel. Very highly recommend!

About the Host, Lilian
Hello, I'm Lilian, I'm 50 years old, I'm vegan and I live in Bordighera, with my son Simone, (13 years). My daughter Lucrezia, comes and goes from Nice where she's studying History and literature at the university. We share our home with our cat Thomas and our dog (a sweet black cocker spaniel) named Lucky. We have a nice apartment, 30 metres far from the beach, we love animals and nature and we spend our free time riding our 2 horses, meeting friends and making new ones, reading, or watching old movies.
We will be happy to have you as our guests, showing you the sourroundings, giving you some good advice about where to go to taste our tipycal food and wine! (or where to find a a very good italian pizza!)
