I purchased my apartment in 2005 when the building was just completed and you can view it under HomeAway Reference 433660. I am now looking after this apartment ,which is immediately below mine ,for an Italian owner. I used to run an award-winning 5 star Bed & Breakfast in Cheshire, UK between 1994 - 2003. With the experience gained over that period these apartments are a new venture working to the same high standards.
Helen purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Helen chose Menton
Garavan is an exclusive part of Menton on the border with Italy and many beautiful villas with fine gardens were built, often by British families at the start of the last century. Many of these villas remain. Our building has been most elegantly designed and construced in the garden of one of these villas and is on a particularly quiet road just above the main Promenade.Unlike many other resorts this oasis of peace and calm is nevertheless close to shops, bars and restaurants.
What makes this Apartment unique
The former villa garden with its fine trees & shrubs has been beautifully incorporated into the setting of the new building and is meticulously maintained along with the pool & sunbathing deck.From the apartment and the garden there are inspirational views over the bay with its marinas and beach activities to the romantic Basilica and old town of Menton from sunrise over Italy to sunset behind Monaco!

Christmas in Menton
Lovely apartment. Clean, quiet and comfortable. Walking distance from the sea front and shops, although quite steep and hilly walking back.
Helen was super helpful and informative
Great apartment in good location.
This apartment is really well located in walking distance to Menton. It is well equipped, very clean and well maintained inside and out. Super patio area and access to lovely communal pool. Sea is 5 minutes walk and clear and blue. Train station nearby to explore the the coastal resorts. Helen and Karen couldn't be more helpful in organising and looking after us. A super place we would love to visit again.
Many thanks. It is always very reassuring to get positive feedback. I am delighted that you had such a good holiday. Menton is such a lovely town and one can explore the French Riviera AND Italy so easily. Best wishes. Helen
Comfortable homely kitchen well equipped convenient for train and town Karen couldn't have been more
Local pizzas excellent takeaway next to ibis at bottom of road
A tranquil, comfortable retreat
The apartment is beautifully situated with a lovely view over the sea and Menton. The garden is a lovely green oasis which adds to the sense of tranquility. It is a well furnished, comfortable flat.
The walk along the tree-lined Boulevard Garavan, high up above the sea, into Menton is beautiful. It is also only a brief walk down to the harbour, and to the train station. We enjoyed catching trains along the coast.
This property is highly recommended for exploring the Cote d'Azure and Liguria.
Perfect stay in Menton
We spent there 2 unforgettable weeks in October! The way to the beach takes approximately 15 minutes by walk! It's modern, well equipped and cozy apartment with very nice garden!
Menton and apartment itself are really outstanding! Highly recommended!
This review does not coincide with the reference number of my property andit is only a 4-5 minute walk to the sea! Otherwise the comments on the apartment are very kind.Helen Spiegelberg
My husband and I rented this apt. for 4 weeks.....we found it very comfortable and well located and did not necessitate a car. Especially lovely terrace and garden and view of Old Menton. The living room with its two sofas was very comfortable for us in the evenings. Very secure building.
The ancient port of Menton, between sea and mountains, with one of the most temperate micro-climates on the Mediterranean, was perfect for the Victorian aristocracy to build their spectacular gardens and villas, this apartment being in the garden of one such villa. Menton is small enough to be able to reach almost everywhere on foot but there is also good public transport with a bus service along the promenade (5 mins walk) and an excellent train service along the length of the Riviera for which our local station of Menton Garavan is just a 4 min walk away. Below the Promenade are a variety of restaurants with both public & private bathing areas. Local shops & a supermarket are nearby. To our east is the border with Italy, specifically the region of Liguria with historical resorts such as San Remo.To the west lies Monaco, just 12 kilometres away & Nice, 40 mins by train, both excellent for art, music, ballet and opera, as well as casinos! A number of the famous gardens such as Hanbury are open throughout the year and Menton has a renowned Lemon Festival every February.
