The outside areas were the best part and we spent a lot of time out there. It was very peaceful and relaxing. The plunge pool was perfect. The two bathrooms and kitchen were very good but the second bedroom was basically partitioned from the main living area by a book shelf, so we don't think that the property would be suitable for two couples. There was very little hanging space. Could have done with a proper welcome pack on arrival with basic contents i.e. Milk, bread, butter, eggs but only had a bottle of Muscat wine, sparkling water and tomato juice. It meant we had to go and find a supermarket after a tiring day of travelling. When we mentioned it to Michele, she said we could have asked for specific items. You will need an understanding of French too as most information and contact was in French. My O'level French came in handy! If you are driving to the property, beware that there are several hairpin bends to contend with on the way up and lots of one way streets in Menton! On-street parking in the town was very difficult but we used the main underground car parks, especially the one near the Marina. Most of our issues were fairly minor and overall we would recommend this property.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      lovely property. Although a walk up a hill to get to it, this is through a shady olive grove. The area was quiet but within walking distance of the Old Town and the beach. We were able to walk down for fresh bread every morning. Facilities were good and enough for the three of us. It was quite hot at night. Although a fan is provided there is no air conditioning, which we were aware of; having used this property before. Would happily book this property again.
