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.

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.

Perfect apartment in Menton

5 of 5
Three of us stayed here for a weekend on the coast, and we'd all come back again. 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!

Lovely apartment

5 of 5
We have been to Menton 5 times before and this was the best place we have stayed. 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.
