Outdoor pursuits: With the mountains right by the sea, there's a tremendous choice of Alpine pursuits and watersports to enjoy right on the doorstep of Menton holiday rentals.

Museums of note include the Bastion and Jean Cocteau Museums.

The apartment is modern, clean, bright and in a very quiet street. It is well equipped, it had everything we needed. Close to the train station, bus station, and the sea. There is also a small supermarket at the end of the street. The owner is a very pleasant man and we hope to return to this apartment on our next visit to Menton.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

It is in an excellent location on the sea front with only a very short walk to the supermarket, great restaurants and shops. There is good public transport enabling us to get to Nice and Monaco easily following a stunning coastline. We enjoyed breakfast on the balcony watching the sun rise over the nearby mountains. There are plenty of good walks and sights to see. We can highly recommend this apartment and look forward to returning.
