Great for an escape from the worst of the British weather. Enjoyed all the facilities of the villa - efficient heating, wifi, tv and dvd- on inclement days and was lovely to get out and about in the area when it was sunny. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

It is the perfect size for a family with kids, and the garden and the upstairs pool gave our kids the opportunity to have areas where they could "Escape the parents" and we could relax knowing they were in a secured area. It was clean, roomy, lots of light and enjoyable. Everything is a quick walk, the sea, the supermarket, the old town and restaurants. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. Always a quick response to emails. It was our first time in Menton, and we really loved the area, you are in the cote d' azur but don't feel like your in a holiday resort. Everybody is very friendly and the town is very well connect with transport. All in all a great property and a great location, we highly recommend this property and Menton. We will be back, Johanna

We were really impressed by the lovely apartment - it was clean, spacious, comfortable and very convenient for our weekend. The owners have obviously spent a lot of time doing the apartment up and maintaining it to a high standard. Mike, the owner, was extremely helpful in answering our questions before we arrived and very prompt in taking us through the booking/deposit process. He arranged for a friend to meet us at the apartment when we arrived and she was also extremely helpful and accommodating. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a holiday in Nice - we loved it and will be back!
