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 apartment is bright and clean with lots of room. The perfect sized kitchen (new too!) with a dishwasher. We loved the balcony for breakfast in the sun taking in the view. Everything is in easy reach so we didn't need a car. There's a great supermarket 2 mins away and the town and beach are a few minutes walk. I'd visit again for sure!

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.
