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!

Every convenience you would need is supplied, and more. Plenty of room to sunbathe in the garden and relax. The local supermarket is literally less than five minutes away, and the beachfront a short walk further on. The bus to town is just around the corner from the supermarket so any trip there is easy and quick. Plenty of life in the local area, Carnoles, and yet you are a short walk away from it in a quiet spot. You would want for very little here, close to everything and guaranteed sunshine. Audrey and Ingrid are available should you need anything but leave you alone otherwise to enjoy your privacy and stay. We would recommend this apartment wholeheartedly for any time of year and would hope to return again.
