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.
(URL HIDDEN) 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).
