Propre, confortable et super bien décoré. Il est super bien situé pour vivre à Menton et visiter la région même sans voiture car il y a le train et l,autobus pour circuler. La mer (la Grande bleue) est juste de l'autre côté de la rue ! Un atout, la gentillesse et là disponibilité de Nathalie qui s'est occupé de nous accueillir !! Elle était là à l'heure du rendez-vous et prend le temps de nous expliquer le fonctionnement de l'appartement! Nous la remercions !! Nous vous recommandons fortement la location de l'appartement de Sandra et Mark !!

A Carrefour Express supermarket is located just round the corner and Boulangeries are a few minutes away. Arriving by train, the building was easy to find although access to the apartment was a little more difficult as it was through a remotely controlled gate. With the help of people who were just leaving, we quickly gained access and Pascale greeted us at the door. She kindly showed us around her apartment and we found her to be both friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay at the property, it was clean and came well equipped with everything we needed including dishwasher and microwave. The apartment faces inwards towards a courtyard/parking area so we weren't too bothered by traffic outside in the street.
