Fabulous apartment!

5 of 5
This is the second time we have been to stay at Naomi and David's apartment so you may have guessed we love it. If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay and chill then this is right for you. The property is very high spec in a secure area with a small private patio/garden which leads to an infinity pool overlooking the sea. Paradise! The owners have spent a considerable amount of time ensuring that everything you need to know about the area and accommodation are to hand and on the odd occasion we needed advice they came back to us straight away. We will be back!

Little gem!

5 of 5
The apartment was perfect for us. We are a family of six and there was enough room for us all. The small, enclosed garden was a real boon, increasing the available space and giving a lovely, shady place for our youngest to play safely. We got great use out of the rooftop pool, which does have wonderful views. The apartment is also directly across the road from the beach and the supermarket. We did have a rental car and were very happy that underground parking was available, although it was a tight squeeze for the 7 seater. We have holidayed in various French regions and have always needed and extensively used a rental car, however, one definitely does not need a car in Menton. The train and bus services are excellent - frequent and great value for money... and also hassle-free, given the tiny roads and horrendous roadworks in Monaco!!! We did drive over the Italian border into Ventimiglia - disaster! - no parking to be had. The train would have been so much easier... the Menton-Garavan station is only a short walk from the apartment,as is the border itself. We had a little difficulty working out how the TV worked ( I wasn't particularly motivated to find out either - a week with no TV is a plus in my book, feelings not shared by my children unfortunately). I have nothing negative to say about the apartment or the location and would have no hesitation in returning and recommending it to others.
