Description from owner


You will be staying on the premises of flamboyant French-Italian artist Nicole Durand. Her atelier and art gallery is app. 200 meters away from your apartment and you are always welcome to drop by. In addition to the stunning views of the sea,the apartment has the benefit of its own exclusive terrace

From the apartment you can just step onto a mountain path and walk through the mountains up and beyond the French border. . The village is blissfully quiet. The inhabitants are all very friendly and there are parties and celebrations regularly held on the church square. In the evenings you can enjoy the clear starry sky and the sea magically illuminated by the moonlight.or you can go to Menton or Monte Carlo to find all kind of cultural events

The village is full of fruit trees with ripening lemons, figs and grapefruits. The supermarket, a restaurant and a bar can be reached within app. 5 minutes by car. Mortola Superiore practically borders with France, the lovely town of Menton is only 2,5 km away. Here you will enjoy the best of the two countries: a typical Italian mountain village at a hand’s reach from the worldly Cote d’Azur.

Villa amenities:

The apartment consists of various levels, connected by the means of stone arches and small stairways.

Mosaics,frescoes,monumental sculpture,Art is everywhere in the village

Location & Nearby Attractions:

Mortola Superiore is only 2 km away from the French Cote D’Azur where you can witness all kinds of events, all year round. Think about the Gran Prix of Monaco, the Cannes film festival, or the ‘Masters’ tennis tournament of Monte Carlo. Also other places, such as Grasse and Provence, are within easy reach from Mortola. On the other side, there is La Dolce Vita, Italy. Mortola lies app. at an 8 km distance from a vivacious town at the seaside, Ventimiglia.

You can choose between the sun, the sea and the beach on the one hand and on the other - a rigorous mountain walk amidst the beautiful nature of the Ligurian Alps. In the neighbourhood you will find many picturesque medieval villages, such as Dolceaqua, Pigna and Apricale. The famous city of San Remo can be easily reached as well, whether you take the motorway or drive the beautiful country road along the coastline. Lovely sand beaches (with possibilities to go windsurfing, waterskiing, watching dolphins or making coast excursions), cosy bays and impressive rock masses lie within the range of 10 km.

In the summer the little inland villages hold characteristic folk festivals. There are good pizzerias and fish restaurants at the seaside. Also the famous botanic gardens ‘Giardini Hanbury’ (+/- 3km) are definitely worth a visit. Everywhere you will find little shops to buy Ligurian specialties, such as pesto, olive pâté, wine and extra virgin olive oil.
