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.

We were very sorry to leave it after a long stay in January and February. The apartment is newly (and beautifully) refurbished to a high standard. The views are stunning. The sitting room has a bay window with uninterrupted views of the sea. The coast road is below but you are unaware of any traffic noise. The main sound is that of the waves. The decor is calming and practical with warm wooden floors and modern furniture. Well fitted state of the art kitchen. Exceptional shower rooms. Comfortable beds. Large screen television. Fast internet connection. Hosts are delightful and communicate well. They responded quickly to little glitches including us loosening the television cable by mistake and thinking it had stopped working! Location is perfect with only a five minute walk to the railway station and a few metres away from the bus stop that serves the airport bus (110) and a bus that will take you to Monaco and Nice (100). Plenty of restaurants to choose from close by. Covered market is a pleasant short walk along the sea front. Menton is great for walking and we have enjoyed following the coastal path to both Italy (not far) and Monaco (about 10 km and mostly along a quiet path). If the weather is bad (we've only had a very few wet days) then sitting in the cosy apartment and looking out at the rough sea is a pleasant way to pass the time. If you come for the Citrus Festival then you will get a great view of the parade. Don't hesitate to book this lovely place. Enjoy your stay.
