It really is a wonderful place with fantastic views of the sea and the harbour. It is tastefully decorated and well-equipped and everything was exactly as described. Andrea and Lara are lovely people and provided some very useful advice and suggestions for visits during our stay. We used the bikes provided during our stay - the cycle track is wonderful! We cannot find any faults with the property and would highly recommend a stay here - you will not regret it!

Modern and well equipped, with the most amazing view of the whole bay, from Menton Old Town to the Italian Border! Overlooking the Olive grove...fabulous! We were welcomed by Chantal who speaks good English and she showed us the way around everything. The secure garage, the lift, the private balconies and garden...and the shared pool. (Although we hardly saw anyone else and most days we had the pool to ourselves). Every comfort and convenience had been thought of and we felt it was great value for money. We recommend this apartment and location to everyone. So easy to drive down into Italy or across to Monaco! We had a really great time. Thank you Sofie, Chantal and Jaques!
