I am a retired former bank executive, and I love travelling, entertaining cooking, gardening, literature, and art in general.
Michèle Sampieri purchased this apartment in 1985
The house continues living when I am not there. Furthermore, the city of Menton, its microclimate, and its tropical vegetation are worth a look.
The terrace with trees and vegetation offers a heavenly view. The peace, the equipment and the decoration of the house, the security of the place.
This property has everything you could possibly need to enjoy a holiday in Menton. It's main attraction is it's secluded garden and pool/jacuzzi with an incredible view across the whole Cote d'Azure coastline and mountains. There is plenty space indoors and outdoors to relax after busy days and nights exploring the area. Getting out and about is relatively easy. The town and beach are directly below the hill that the property sits upon. Heading back to the property does involve negotiating a bit of a hill, but the view is worth it when you reach the distinctive green door and you can always jump in the pool to cool off afterwards. It's only a short walk down the hill to the train station where Monaco and Italy are just two stops in either direction. Menton is a lovely town to explore with plenty places to eat, drink, shop and soak up the French culture. There is a Casino and a small seaside funfair which has enough to amuse young children. The town of Menton also puts on lots of events and festivals throughout the summer including a music festival in August. Michelle is a lovely and attentive owner, responding well to all our questions. Eric makes regular visits to look after the beautiful garden and clean the pool. We were also greeted by a fantastic welcome hamper, which was much appreciated after our late flight. The kitchen and bathrooms are modern and well equipped. One slight drawback is that there is no wardrobe in the main bedroom. The second bedroom is part of an area separated from the sitting area by shelving, which is okay for younger children. Overall we felt we had all the support we needed to have a fun and relaxing holiday and would happily return in future.
In all my travels this has to be one of the best investments in time and money that I have ever experienced.
The residence and its multitude of amenities was and were first class.
Pictures of the residence and its views do not do it justice, they truly are magnificent.
My sons and I enjoyed every minute of our stay, not only at the residence but in the surrounding region.
The walk to the village/city of Menton was, for the boys, a very easy five minute stroll, for me, with old knees, it was doable but the rental car made my stay much easier.
Lots to see and do in Menton, great restaurants, cafes and markets.
Eric appeared every other day to take care of the pool and the gardens and was more than helpful.
Michele stayed in touch via emails just to make sure that we were doing ok.
Should you get the opportunity, visit the region and if possible arrange to stay at this beautiful villa.
We stayed two weeks in this great apartement which fulfilled all our expectations. We are a couple and had our baby with us, so we needed a nice place to stay since we knew we had to spend quite some time in the apartement (since we have a small baby). Therefore a good outdoor space was essential, and the outdoor garden in this apartement is really great. It is big, has a very nice garden and spectacular view. Inside the apartement is modern with two very good bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen. Only drawback was that the apartement is on a hill, and it was a bit difficult to navigate the baby stroller down the hill - but it was perfectly possible, and we went downtown more or less every day (it took about 8-10 minutes to get down the hill). When you get down the hill you are in the middle of the centre and Menton is a good city for moving around with a baby stroller. If you don't have a baby and stroller, it is of course much easier to get up and down the hill - and the view from the apartement is well worth the small effort. The owner reacted very quickly if there was any questions and we really enjoyed our two weeks in this apartement. Highly recommended!
