Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Menton, France your home away from home

The Menton area of France is in the extreme south east of the French Riviera, rich in flowers, beaches and the maritime way of life. Menton is a region where life is to be enjoyed, with huge festivals being passionately celebrated, and the leisurely pace of life centres around the glorious beaches, warm sea and fertile countryside.

Things to do on holiday in Menton, France

The famous three week Lemon Festival has meant that accommodation in Menton, France, is in huge demand from February until March. Large parades, Brazilian bands, folklore, dancing and marching bands adorn the streets, especially on the weekends, so if you can only manage a weekend break to Menton during this period, it is still hugely worthwhile.

The region is also famous for its water sports facilities. If you are staying in accommodation in Menton, water sports are likely to play a large part in your holidays. Sailing in the Mediterranean, basking in the warm sun, is a delightful way to see the coast, and there are plenty of great spots to drop your anchor and go for a swim. Scuba diving, rowing and canoeing are also hugely popular.

Back on land, the lush countryside is a particular favourite destination for walkers who have taken a self catering Menton villa. The region is rural, and you can hike for many, many miles in almost any direction into the mountains or along the ‘Balcony of Europe’. The views across the Mediterranean are simply breathtaking, and there are many glorious sights to be seen as you walk.

Places to holiday in Menton, France

The town of Menton is nicknamed the ‘Pearl of France’, and has regularly been referred to as the most beautiful town on the French Riviera. The town has risen to fame due to its fantastic flowers and world-renowned gardens which decorate the region; Le Val Rahmeh, the Maria Serena Garden, the Sierra de la Modone and the Fontana Rosa are among the most famous. Even the pebbles which make up the pavements are arranged in highly ornate ways, meaning that there is beauty in every direction you glance. Taking a villa or apartment in Menton is not just about absorbing the laid back atmosphere and admiring the beauty of the town though. There are many fine restaurants and cafes to enjoy, as well as two sandy beaches at the bottom of the town.

Cap d’Ail lines a particularly peaceful part of the Cote d’Azur, running to the boarder of Monaco. The cliff road which runs around the top of the village gives you an unrivalled view of the Italian coast. Cap d’Ail is host to many regattas during the summer, and a holiday rental villa here is perfect for walking.

Beausoleil forms an amphitheatre above the principality of Monaco, and is created almost entirely by ‘Belle Epoque’ architecture, giving it a magnificent atmosphere. Whilst there is much to so in the town itself, Beausoleil is best known for its views over Monaco and access to the municipality.

Weather in Menton, France

With an average of 316 days with cloudless skies every year, it is little surprise that accommodation in Menton is so highly regarded for both weekend breaks and holidays in the sun. Average temperatures in the height of summer (July and August) reach a delightful 30°C, making accommodation in Menton with a private pool priceless. Even in winter, the sun shines and temperatures remain above 12°C.

It had a generous decked balcony with fantastic views over the sea and harbour, looking towards Menton old town in one direction and towards Italy in the other. The beach was just across the road and some lovely restaurants were within easy reach as well as the old town of Menton. We did suffer from road noise during the night despite the double glazing and electric curtain in the master bedroom. The coastal road that runs through Menton into Italy is a busy one and the Italians do love their scooters! Ear plugs are a good idea.

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 had a car so we could easily access the neighbourhood, but the local supermarket and other shops were only a short walk away. If you didn't have a car, you could catch a bus to Menton from the end of the road or the train, also quite close. Having a dedicated parking spot was a real asset. The house is accurately described on the website. It is well equipped. By night it was very peaceful. Unfortunately, when we were there, there was very noisy building excavation going on just 50-100m away, so that prevented us using the garden. Hopefully that noise will reduce in the next few weeks. We were lucky in having great weather. In fact, October seems like a good time to visit- the crowds have largely gone, though some restaurants and shops were closed/closing. There are some really nice walks in the hills/mountains behind Menton and along the coast. Many are accessible by bus, but we mostly used a car and chose circular walks. Audrey is closeby if any problems arise. I would have given 5*, if I hadn't been surprised by the building works.
