Perfetto! A true taste of italy

5 of 5
Laura was the perfect host really helpful friendly and welcoming - we didn't actually stay in this property because neighbours were building nearby so Laura finished another apartment for us below her parents. It was everything we needed - beautiful - clean - comfortable. Lovely views from the terrace. Bordighera is a lovely town - particularly the old town and you must visit dolce Aqua and apricale - this area of Italy is truly beautiful and we will be returning to stay with Laura again.
