Arguably one of the most sought after locations in the World, the Riviera is the perfect setting for this immaculate Villa. The sun setting across the water creates some of the most spectacular skylines anywhere, and it is easy to see why this locale is so highly prized as a holiday destination. Just 10 minutes from the French border and 20 minutes away from Monaco, Villa Mostaccini sits on top of one of the most panoramic hills of the entire Riviera.
Bordighera has a particular climate, which can be noted by the self-sown vegetation and some of the botanic species found in the gardens of the Villa.
