Menton holiday apartments are sited right on the French border with Italy, in a town often known as the 'Pearl of France'. Most of the Cote d'Azur has the Alps as a backdrop, but around Menton, the southern Alps tumble directly into the sea. 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.

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.

It had a generous decked balcony with fantastic views over the sea and harbour, looking towards Menton old town in one direction and towards Italy in the other. The beach was just across the road and some lovely restaurants were within easy reach as well as the old town of Menton. We did suffer from road noise during the night despite the double glazing and electric curtain in the master bedroom. The coastal road that runs through Menton into Italy is a busy one and the Italians do love their scooters! Ear plugs are a good idea.

It is the perfect size for a family with kids, and the garden and the upstairs pool gave our kids the opportunity to have areas where they could "Escape the parents" and we could relax knowing they were in a secured area. It was clean, roomy, lots of light and enjoyable. Everything is a quick walk, the sea, the supermarket, the old town and restaurants. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. Always a quick response to emails. It was our first time in Menton, and we really loved the area, you are in the cote d' azur but don't feel like your in a holiday resort. Everybody is very friendly and the town is very well connect with transport. All in all a great property and a great location, we highly recommend this property and Menton. We will be back, Johanna
