The Villa is situated in Menton above the Port of Garavan with a breathtaking panoramic view over the coast from Cap Martin to the Italian Riviera, overlooking the beaches and the ‘Old Town’ of Menton. The bells from the St. Michele Church can be heard on Sundays.
From the terrace guests can judge the temperature of the sea by the number of people at the beaches. The Villa was built some 15 years ago in a modern ‘style provencal,’ set in 3500 sqm2 of sloping land covered with ancient old olive and cypress trees. It is extremely calm in a peaceful environment and all the rooms in the Villa face the sea with its panoramic view.

We stayed in this beautiful villa with some of our friends in June and it was great!! Everything one could wish for for a perfect holiday. The house is full of beautiful art and the view from the terrass is breathtaking.
The beds were perfect and we enjoyed our breakfast every morning on the terrass looking over "le grand bleu".
I would highly recommend this villa to all my friends and I also hope to come again to stay in this lovely house.
Thank you, Jeanetta, it was perfect.
