My apartment is on the 1st floor of Chateau Vallaya, a small tiered complex of 24 flats built in 2005.The sejour opens out onto a large L-shaped terrace looking south and west over the harbour of Garavan and the Italianate old town of Menton and east over Italy.There are tables, chairs and loungers on the terrace so you can eat on the terrace and in the sejour.There are 2 bedrooms,one double en suite and one twin with shower room. A separate WC is provided off the hall. There is air conditioning. The kitchen which is open to the sejour, is well equipped, it has a large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, electric oven & ceramic hob. Sky TV, DVD, Wi-fi, radio & CD are supplied. All towels/bed linen (not beach towels) are provided.The main entrance is on the top floor with lift access to all apartments.Our excellent location means you do not need a car but free parking is available on the Boulevarde de Garavan,100yds from the apartment.Access to the garden and pool is adjacent to our apartment.Around the pool is a small deck for sunbathing.The garden has many fine palm trees and is maintained meticulously. Menton is known for its gardens, its Lemon Festival and for its many Belle Époque villas. The beach and local restaurants are a 4-5 minute walk from the apartment.
