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.
