About Michèle Sampieri

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

Why Michèle Sampieri chose Menton

The house continues living when I am not there. Furthermore, the city of Menton, its microclimate, and its tropical vegetation are worth a look.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Wonderful apartment in beautiful Menton

  • 5 of 5

We have very fond memories of our time in Menton and your beautiful home. We were delighted to find that Villa Christie was just as comfortable and attractive as the photos on the website.

We thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated every aspect of this lovely property. The garden was picturesque whichever way you looked. Likewise the house with every corner or niche like a composed picture. The commanding view over the city and the Mediterranean was amazing. We never tired of just going out and looking over the vista. We hope to return.

Owner's Response: Moira et Ken sont des personnes hautement appréciables et dignes de confiance. La maison après leur départ était dans un état de propreté remarquable chaque chose à sa place et notre terrasse jardin durant leur séjour très bien entretenue. Moira et Ken sont des personnes très agréables que nous recommandons. Nous espérons les accueillir une autre fois parmi nous.

Relaxing place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Christie. 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.

Magical Menton

  • 5 of 5

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.

Everything and More

  • 5 of 5

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.

Idyllique place

  • 5 of 5

We loved the stay at this property. There were only two of us and the flat is spacious enough for four. The main bathroom is wonderful with a very big shower. The terrace is unlike any I have ever seen. It is very large, an interesting shape with a variety of covered eating/resting areas, but above all the well-cared for plants and upkeep of this terrace-garden is outstanding. The photos on the internet don't do it justice. We certainly plan to return. One minor downside is the steep climb to the house from the village centre. It is a quick 5 min walk, but quite steep. That said, we are unfit and still managed it several times a day. The upside is the breathtaking view from the house over the village.
