About Joanna Courtney

I was born in Eire but brought up in London.

I lived for many years managing a small hotel in Italy (hence my love of France and Italy.

I returned to the UK and owned a Restaurant in London.

I then went into the Universities and became a General Manager of the SU in the London Universities.

I purchased the apartment in Menton for the beauty/tranquility/and easy access to many other places.The apartment has been refurbished to a very high standard as a large well furnished home.It is over 100.sq mtrs giving space for 6+ people without feeling crowded.

I now live in London but visit frequently.

Joanna Courtney purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Joanna Courtney chose Menton Area

As a young woman I travelled very often to the South of France and Italy and fell in love with this part of the world for the feel good factor.The food the people the markets selling wonderful local produce the fantastic climate and the many interesting places to see and visit with easy access to by car or public transport to many other places

What makes this apartment unique

I am not sure whether I love it more in the winter or summer every season brings something new.

The christmas decorations in Menton are something to behold

The orange festival where the whole town seems made of oranges and lemons

The wonderful feeling of safeness which makes the place ideally suited to everyone young or old.

Convenient - especially good for elderly

  • 5 of 5

A very convenient location with bakery (fantastic bread) fruit and veg shop and butcher next door. One block in from the sea front and a lovely walk in to town. Flat has everything you need and is big - plenty of room for 6 with 3 decent sized bed rooms.

LOCATION.LOCATION.LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, together with friends, have stayed in Joanna's apartment twice during the Monte Carlo Rally in May. Menton has a peaceful environment only 10 minutes away from the husle and busle of Monte Carlo.

The apartment is very comfortable, light and airy , has all amenities, and has a great location. On the ground floor there is a bakery, grocers, butchers and florist. Excellent as we made many meals at home. 2 minutes away there is a supermarket and 5 minutes into the old town you can find the indoors market where you can buy wonderful fresh french produce. There is an abundance of resturants both in the near vicinity and only a few minutes away in the old

town.

Even though the apartment is close to the train station (10 mins walk) we found it much easier to take the bus which

stops almost outside the building. 1 euro is the price and

that takes you all the way to Cannes. We hired a car the

first time and then found out that it was not necessary -

only for day excursions.The apartment is parallel to the

beach and only a block away. This of course is the public

beach - if you need more comfort use a private beach which is only 10 mins walk away.... towards Nice "Elsa Plage" or the next one of which I can't remember the name but you cannot miss it as it is the only building on the beach with a dome. Here you pay for private beach chairs and the surroundings are more luxurious. Both beaches have their own restaurant, exellent for lunch, and with very good food.

We were met by the local manager who was extremely helpful both on our arrival and departure.The apartment was very clean and well maintained.

Disadvantages - no dishwasher -

Some noise from the street but as there is double glazing

this is not a problem and the evenings and night time is

completely quiet. The French are very neat and tidy and like their streets to be so too. Therefore the "street washing" machines start quite early in the morning. If you

become irritated over this just think how wonderful it will be

later in the day to go out in a town which is clean and tidy

and free from garbage!!

We enjoyed our stay very much and will be returning soon again. We highly recommend this apartment not only because of the location but it has a great atmosphere.

You know when you find class!

  • 5 of 5

IMy familly and I have stayed at this lovely apartment on four occasions, all seasons except high summer. The situation is perfect, within easy walking distance of many restaurants and the beach. It is situated above a first class Bakery, for those morning quoissants and baguettes.

The accommodation itself is a roomy, high ceilinged apartment, furnished with exquisite taste by the owners. The furniture is a tasteful blend of contemporary and antique pieces, which ooze comfort, coziness and style.

I would recommend this destination to anyone as a classy, comfortable base in which to luxuriate between trips to explore the local area. On a practical level it is on the bus route to Nice Airport, and a 10 minute walk from Menton Railway Station. We found that it was not worth hiring a car, as the transport facilities are first rate, and most places are within walking distance. The old town and hilltop cemetery are a must, as are the cathedral and harbour. All in all, I cannot speak too highly of the apartment and the town. Bon Vacance!

Gorgeous place

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my boyfriend and mother for a week long break in Menton. It was just what we wanted- a stone's throw from the beach, spacious, cool and comfortable. All the rooms are large, with good sound insulation and have lovely French furniture. There is a handy washing machine and the kitchen is very well equipped. The balcony is nice for early evening drinks and the restaurants are all a short stroll away. It is very convenient for the train station so we didn't need a car to get around. Don't miss the coastal path towards Monte Carlo for stunning natural scenery and the cemetery for an incredible view.

Great location, great apartment, great holiday

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a wonderful autumn week in Menton at this lovely apartment. It's classic French, very stylish, uncluttered, and absolutely huge, with a big kitchen/dining/living room, and three big double bedrooms - the bathroom is big and has a good shower. All the furniture is very tasteful, with some nice antiques, and overall a sense of relaxed southern French style. It was cool in the day, warm in the evening, and surprisingly quiet. The apartment is really convenient for all the shops and restaurants in Menton, and less than a minute's walk to the beach. We were able to cook a full meal for some local friends, and then go for a night-time promenade on the sea front...

Nice location, quiet, very basic apartment

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was on the second floor above a restaurant and main thoroughfare so we were worried about noise, but at least in the dead of winter while we were there, it was very quiet---possibly not the case in the summer. The apartment is very spacious but very basic---good for a lot of kids on beach holiday who throw things but not a lot of style, comfort or luxury. Furniture is not very comfortable, rather old and battered, and we kept blowing the fuses whenever we tried to use the light and an appliance in the kitchen the same time. Note that there is no phone and no internet access, and only one shower, no bath. Perfect for families, not the place for anyone looking for romance or atmosphere. Nice location, just a block from the lovely oceanfront, lots of shops and restaurants within a few minutes' walk. Getting to the apartment by bus from the airport was a snap---bus stop is practically across the street from the building.

Owner's Response: I have just received the review from the woman who stayed in my apartment in Menton,I entirely disagree with her comments on decor and furnishing within the apartment.The apartment is redecorated in its entirety every 2 years.The furnishings and furniture are all less than 5 years old ,of a very high quality with the exception of some good antique pieces,.The curtains are Timney fowler trompe de voile,in white a very well regarded international designer.It is correct that there is a very large bathroom with only a shower + all other normal bathroom facilities,also a smaller washroom(sink bathroom cabinet ,bidet and toilet.We are arranging Internet access,as far as I am aware almost no apartments have phones.The apartment is double glazed I have never received any complaints winter or summer regarding noise levels.As the heating and lighting are electric and with a safety trip out against overloading I can only think that if this has happened due to the fact that all the heating lighting and ovens were on at the same time in the whole apartment resulting in the safety device tripping. The armchairs recovered 6 months ago in very good top of the range fabric are Parker knoll large armchairs very comfortable .The sofa is a very large high quality duck and down filled with a white removable covering for high level of cleaning.The apartment is certainly very suitable to a large family who have respect for nice surroundings,I have also many guests who like there own space who do not have children.The apartment has a 3 star rating from the French tourist board .Could the problem have arisen from a level of discontent. (The people renting the accommodation made an error of 12 hrs on their time of arrival we have the emails although they were requested to double check the time difference .Resulting in them having to wait 45mins for he managing agent to arrive with the keys as she was on another assignment on the 27th Dec.We always request feedback from people who have stayed with us and they have been 95% positive.
