We had a great holiday staying at Illona's lovely apartment in Mortola. The view was spectacular, with two different sea views. both are a delight. The apartment is homely and very clean, the atmosphere is enhanced by Illona's mum's beautiful paintings which are so lovely to live with. There is a supermarket close by and Mortola is a good base for visiting places nearby in Italy and France as well. The Hanbury Botanical Gardens are right opposite the house so very convenient to spend a morning (or a whole day) walking around looking at the amazing variety of beautiful plants, flowers and trees from all over the world. Illona was very helpful and made it a pleasure to rent her apartment, we would highly recommend it to all. Great holiday, thank you Illona. Cathy & Gordon (Scotland)
