: Nice Cote d'Azur
: Sablettes Beach
Menton is one of the more relaxed locations along the French Riviera. It has long stretches of coastline with beaches all along it where you'll have no trouble finding a nice spot to catch a little sunshine. Sablettes Beach is particularly nice and almost directly opposite the apartment. There are also many cafes along the beaches serving snacks, light meals, coffee and cold drinks. The old town of Menton is a short stroll away and is very pretty with its tall, colourful ochre buildings. It is filled with beautiful sights such as the Basilica, the Palais de l'Europe and there are markets and many shops to explore. The train station is just a twenty minute walk away offering connections into Italy or west along the coast towards Monaco, Nice, Antibes and Cannes. The Promenade is a lovely place for an evening stroll past the Old Town and beyond. Also, you have views of the Old Port right from the apartment. There is also a watersports centre close by for the more adventurous.
