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. The fishing industry has given way to marinas, a sailing school, and the usual equipment hire outlets, though fishing itself is a popular activity for tourists.

Beaches: The seafront of Menton is beach, almost all the way to Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, where HomeAway has a further range of holiday homes. Bordered by attractive boulevards, there is plenty of space for families. The atmosphere is relaxed and kid friendly, compared to more exclusive stretches of the Cote d'Azur, and catered to by a variety of beach clubs.

Menton is also famous for its subtropical gardens, especially the Jardin Serre de la Madone and Jardin Botanique Exotique de Menton, which are both the product of British influence during the 19th century. Museums of note include the Bastion and Jean Cocteau Museums.

L'appartamento è molto luminoso, arredato con gusto e molto funzionale. C'è tutto quello che serve per una vacanza ottima. Cucina, elettrodomestici, posate e piatti sono praticamente nuovi come del resto tutto in casa. Forniti lenzuola e asciugamani in abbondanza e di buona qualità! Dialogo e prenotazione con il proletario, ottima, molto gentile e disponibile. La posizione è perfetta, a qualche minuto dalla spiaggia e dalla passeggiata sul lungomare. Supermercato dietro l'angolo e panetteria e altri negozi utili molto vicini. Molto apprezzato Wi-Fi e anche il parcheggio privato che a Menton è utilissimo! In conclusione consiglio l'appartamento e spero che potremo tornarci per le prossime vacanze! Grazie Pascale!

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.

Lots of space to dine outside and sit and enjoy the sunshine. Apartment well furnished and very secure. Grounds very attractive and well maintained. Apartment easily accessible after short walk from train station. Although Menton was quiet during our week there, we did find two local restaurants that served very good meals - Port Garavan and L'O a la Bouche. Would not hesitate to return to this accommodation if returning to the area. Owners very helpful with arrangements.
