First Class Property Location in Garavan/Menton

  • 4 of 5

A very nice apartment with stunning sea views and views of Menton old town from the large balcony. The apartment was ideally located and it was easy to walk to every amenity that you could require. The view from the apartment more than compensates for the traffic noise which one gets use to in time except for some really annoying unsilenced motor bikes. The apartment was well equipped with excellent Wi-Fi reception and adequate facilities for self-catering for the 2 of us but 4 persons could be comfortably accommodated. Kitchen well equipped with a washing machine, crockery, glassware, cutlery, fridge freezer, microwave, gas cooker and oven but it lacked a dishwasher. This was no problem with the double sink unit and plate rack. Kitchen needed a colander to drain vegetables/pasta and also a salad spinner to dry salad leaves after washing. The Bedroom had a comfortable double bed and the towels and linen supplied were clean and plenty. There was a few maintenance issue to be completed in the apartment particularly the correct fitting of raw plugs and fixing screws that hold the curtain rails and the shower spray height rail also some attention to the paint flaking off the ceiling and walls in some areas. The kitchen door to the balcony does not lock properly and one needs to lower the shutter for security when out and about. However, after having said all that we would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to friends and we would most certainly book another 3 to 4 weeks next year 2017.

Location is very convenient. The view is gorgeous.

  • 4 of 5

In general everything was fine, although it looked a little neglected. A few issues need attention: (1) Cleanliness was not as we expected (2) Too many things left by other guests crowd the storage space (3) Plenty of cleaning supplies, but no cleaning utensils (mops) for the floor, so we had to improvise/buy a couple of things to be able to leave the place as we wanted to have received it.

But the place is definitely worth coming back.

Stunning views and such a convinient location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the apartment for a week in September and enjoyed every minute of it. It is a spacious apartment and ideal for a couple or little family (as sofa bad in the lounge). It has stunning views of the old town and the harbour and, being located just across the road from the beach and within walking distance from the city centre, it is ideal for sunbathing and enjoying the life in Menton. The city itself is just on the border with Italy and it is a fantastic location for exploring the Cote D'Azur and the Ligurian coast in Italy, whether by car, bus or train (the quiter station of Menton Garavan is only about 10min walk from the appartment). In addition to the usual must visit locations for Cote D'Azur first timers (like Nice, Montecarlo, Cannes), you are very close to some beautiful coastal villages (like Villefranche - sur Mere or Cap-D'Ail) and inland ones (like Eze, Sainte Agnes, Gorbio).

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write your review, I agrere Menton is a fantastic location for exploring the Cote D'Azur but it is quite often overlooked as a town to base yourselves whilst expoloring the area. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and I hope to see you back again soon. David

Great Location With Even Better Views

  • 4 of 5

This is an airy, sunny apartment in a great location that's really close to Menton's most sheltered swimming beach. It's only a five minute stroll to the old village with its charming small bars, cafés and shops, and is directly opposite the waterfront dining and party precinct. However, they're set below the promenade, meaning that you can't hear them. It is also really close to the best pizza my wife and I have ever had (in Victoria Square). There are three supermarkets nearby, making it quite feasible to eat-in. This is no 'B option'; the views from the deck rival any in the town, making it an ideal spot for a homemade meal and a bottle of wine. We didn't use the bus service which has stops almost right outside. However, we did catch the train to Monaco from a stop within ten minutes' walk from the apartment. We also walked to the Italian border in under twenty minutes. The apartment can sleep 4, as the sofa converts to a double bed. However, it is an ideal size for a couple. The furniture and fixtures are adequate and there's wi-fi and cable TV.

Definitely spacious, definitely stunning views

  • 4 of 5

Upside: very comfortable bed! loads of storage space, big TV, warm rooms (I went in February), big balcony, STUPENDOUS views, especially at night when the town is lit up and at sunrise. Just a few minutes walk into the town centre and local market, bakery/tea shop on ground floor, Good location for buses (although these aren't that frequent), supermarket a few minutes walk away, beaches and restaurants literally across the road and loads of restaurants within a few minutes walk. Excellent location - either for exploring locally or going further afield (Italy features in the picture).

Helpful management - waited late for me to arrive (I was 2 hours late), got the internet reconnected as soon as they could, gave me a lift to the station on my day of departure.

Downside: for 4, more kitchen items would be useful. Some furnishings a little shabby, but I understand are in the process of being replaced. Noisy location because of the busy road immediately outside. Not too bad with the windows shut and I noticed some people in the block were happy to sit on their balconies regardless.

Mit fantastischem Ausblick aufwachen

  • 5 of 5

Super Lage in Menton Garavan. Zwar ist die Straße laut, aber das sollte klar sein, wenn die Wohnung diese Lage haben soll. Dafür perfekte Aussicht und nur 2 Minuten zum Strand und den Strandbars. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und die Altstadt in nächster Nähe. Die Wohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet was man so braucht. Alles einwandfrei und für uns wieder ein perfekter Urlaub an der Côte d'Azur. Auch die freundliche und unkomplizierte Abwicklung durch die Verwalterin hat dazu beigetragen.

Nearest Beach
Menton Garavan
Car: recommended

This lovely apartment is located in the ever popular Menton Garavan overlooking the beach, which is a fantastic beach to either take in a swim or just to spend the day relaxing. There are numerous restaurant's and bars which are literally a stones throw away from the apartment and if you want treat yourself to an upmarket Michelin star restaurant, Mirazur is just down the road (www.mirazur.fr). A 10 min walk will get you into Menton Old town in which you can explore the daily market, newly opened museum, old church or even try your luck at the casino and of course the many restaurants in the village. From Menton Garavan train station (which is a 15 min walk away) you can explore the rest of the Rivera, going down the coast Monaco is only 10 mins away, Nice is 40 mins and Cannes is 1hr. Alternatively, 10 mins in the other direction will take you into Ventimiglia Italy, where you have access to all major Italian cities by train. Whilst I recommend hiring a car at Nice Airport, you can easily reach Menton using public transport, by bus, Menton is the last stop on the Airport Bus route or alternatively by train you can catch a bus from Nice Airport to Nice Train station and from there catch the train to Menton Garavan.
