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.

A home from home

4 of 5
The house is in the old town and has all the charm of a beautiful old French home. The house is filled with beautiful furniture and antiques. The owner has thought of everything and provides all you could need for a self catering stay. The balcony has wonderful views across the bay and we spent most evenings sitting here watching the world go by. The house is across four floors so there are a lot of stairs and this would not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues. But if you wish a quiet holiday in Menton with a charming house and lovely views, then I highly recommend it.

Everything you need for a relaxing Holiday!

What a fabulous apartment! Modern and well equipped, with the most amazing view of the whole bay, from Menton Old Town to the Italian Border! Overlooking the Olive grove...fabulous! We were welcomed by Chantal who speaks good English and she showed us the way around everything. The secure garage, the lift, the private balconies and garden...and the shared pool. (Although we hardly saw anyone else and most days we had the pool to ourselves). Every comfort and convenience had been thought of and we felt it was great value for money. We recommend this apartment and location to everyone. So easy to drive down into Italy or across to Monaco! We had a really great time. Thank you Sofie, Chantal and Jaques!
