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.

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.

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

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!
