Make a apartment in Menton your home away from home

Menton holiday apartments are sited right on the French border with Italy, in a town often known as the 'Pearl of France'. Most of the Cote d'Azur has the Alps as a backdrop, but around Menton, the southern Alps tumble directly into the sea. Menton holiday rental are part of a historical fishing town, now grown into a popular tourist resort. It's steeped in history with a couple of fascinating museums to explore, as well as some pretty palm-lined beaches to enjoy. Menton accommodation is also handy for the French and Italian Alps, and activities such as skiing, hiking or climbing.

Nearly all self caterings in Menton is convenient for sunbathing and swimming at the beach, and playing tennis or golf – and for those who don't like sand and surf, most offer access to a private pool. Nearly all have fully equipped kitchens for self-catering holidays (and making the most of that delicious local produce), and many have gardens, BBQ areas and onsite parking.

Things to do

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.

Nightlife: The chic and affluent Monaco and Monte Carlo are just a few miles to the southwest, so those with a taste for the finer things in life have a tremendous opportunity to indulge themselves. For a quieter time, Menton has its own discerning choice of casinos, restaurants and bars to enjoy, centreing on La Place aux Herbes.

Shopping: Menton has a historic covered market that opens every day from 5am to 1pm (5.30am in the winter). There's also a fruit and flower market. Antique traders set up stalls next to the main market on Fridays, and a flea market takes place every Saturday.

Culture: The Basilica of Saint-Michel-Archange dominates the town, featuring 17th-century architecture and attracting 100,000 visitors a year. 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.

Weather in Menton

Menton's Alpine wall shelters the town from the northwesterly Mistral wind, creating a warmer microclimate ideal for citrus growing, and ensuring even the winters are suitable for beach holidays. Summer highs average in the 29°C, while winter's highs hover around the mid-teens.

Travel to Menton

Nice Cote d'Azur Airport is 22 miles away, which can be traversed via train or bus if needed. Nice has the second-busiest airport in France, so all the major carriers fly here, including a comprehensive range of budget operators. The south of France is driveable from the UK, too, taking only a couple of days if the starting point is the southeast of England. The trip is also amply doable on the train; with good connections. it's possible to get from London to Nice in around nine hours.

Cosy - like a modern treehouse!

5 of 5
The two of us stayed for one week from Christmas Eve to New Years Eve - our first trip to this area of France - and were very pleased with this choice of gite. We were greeted on arrival by a friend of the owner and found the studio decorated beautifully for Christmas and with champagne in the fridge - a lovely touch. There is everything you need here, including 2 friendly Maine coon cats!! It’s compact, using space cleverly, clean, modern ..and disguised in greenery, tucked away up a hill in the Borrigo valley. It’s not central but a pleasant mile-plus wall to the main edges of town. We flew from UK to Nice and came by public transport. The bus services are very good and cheap; the 3 bus is hourly and 3 min walk. The gite’s sitting area with AstroTurf outside, also private, makes the space feel bigger and would be used on warm days...we were unlucky as the weather was cool and quite cloudy. The heating worked well. Main bed space is up a small step detachable ladder - climb carefully, but it is safe and of clever design. We recommend Menton - get around as wide as you can on foot, by bus or ‘wally trolley’ (near Cousteau art museum). Try the salmon lasagne from Leader Price shop (surprisingly good!) and traditional loaf from Fred&Lisa bakers. Don’t miss the old town’s narrow old streets and 6 bus up high through amazing scenery to Castellar. We even walked to Italy! Thank you to Sabrina, Valerie & cats 😺😺

What a view!

5 of 5
My wife, daughter and I used this lovely, well-appointed apartment on the seafront of Menton for a base from which to explore the French Riviera. The beds are very comfortable and the shower is another nice feature. We had breakfast and meals on the balcony with sweeping views of the Old Town and surrounding hillside and the sunsets are spectacular! If you are a confident driver we'd recommend having a car (there is a garage provided) but there is also a convenient bus stop and the train station is 500 meters away. There is a good supermarket close by on the otherside of the road and a pharmacy in the building of apartment. The best restaurants in Menton are just 3 minute walk in the Old Town, we recommend Cote Sud. Sophia is an attentive owner and very helpful in answering questions, we appreciated the welcome package when we arrived which included a bottle of wine! We will be back and would recommend this apartment to anybody wanting to visit Menton and take full advantage of the see and the Oldtown. J. Folks
