About Helen

I purchased my apartment in Katherine Mansfield Avenue in 2005. I am now looking after this apartment, just 2 minutes walk from mine, for a Swiss-German 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 this apartment is a new venture working to the same high standards.

Why Helen chose Menton Area

Garavan is an exclusive part of Menton on the border with Italy. It offers both French and Italian culture, sights and cuisine. Many fine villas, like Villa Louise, were built here, often by British families at the end of the 19th century. Whereas many have sadly been torn down in Monaco and Nice, Menton still retains numerous Belle Époque villas and palaces.

What makes this apartment unique

The quiet position of Villa Louise in its own grounds with private gated entrance, free secure parking for one car, offers you the chance to stay in a Belle Epoque villa. The views from the little balcony are beautiful, peaceful and inspirational at all times of the day and at night during the winter months the sunsets can be spectacular. The pool deck has sun loungers for the less energetic!

Perfectly romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, to the end of a perfect week, our trip was highlighted by the beautiful Villa Louise.The apartment was a gem. From the very tasteful and quite upscale Italian fixtures, sinks and linens, to the gorgeously sculpted property and pool.

We loved Menton and how easy it was to access towns in Italy and France by rail. Quite conveniently, the train station is a block away from the villa.

We are already trying to figure out a way to return next year!

Lovely historic stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment in the Villa Louise is very, very nice, decorated with taste and flair. The wood floors (rare in a rental) and the sweeping views to Old Menton were especially appreciated. The building itself is a gem and we enjoyed the pool as well as the charm of living in Katherine Manfield's haunt. Everything was extremely clean and well appointed and near the University for those conducting business there. Garavan has many nice restaurants both on the beach and closer to town.

Garavan, Menton
Car: not necessary

Menton is an ancient port between sea and mountains basking in one of the most temperate micro climates on the Mediterranean. The Victorians built many beautiful Belle Epoque villas,of which Villa Louise, in its own grounds, is one. Katherine Mansfield, the famous New Zealand writer, lived at Villa Louise and wrote many books here. Menton is a resort where a car is not necessary, buses along the promenade, only a 5 minute walk, & an excellent train service along the length of the Riviera makes sight seeing easy. Below the Promenade are a variety of restaurants with both public and private bathing areas. Local shops and a supermarket are nearby. To the east is the border with Italy, the region of Liguria, and to the west lies Monaco, 12 kilometres, and Nice, 40 minutes by train, both excellent for art, concerts, ballet and opera as well as casinos! There are many famous gardens in this area open throughout the year, notably Hanbury Gardens just over the border in Italy. Menton is famous for its February annual Lemon Festival.
