Overview

About the property

Equipped apartment, in good conditions, renovated historic building in the city

In the historic town centre of Menton, near the cathedral and the pedestrian centre

No need for a car (the market and the beaches are 2 minutes away on foot)

Independent apartment on 2 levels, with mezzanine, in good conditions, in a home connected to the history of the city. Easy maintenance and staff on site. Possibility to rent the house linen, cleaning service option. Station at 20 min. you can get there by TGV. If you have a car there is free parking at 50-100m (varies according to season).

'Palais des Princes' Why?: Abritel apartment 590677 is located in the town’s historic centre (the house was built in 1640 by the Grimaldi family who lived here!). Both the building and the facades where renovated in 2010.

You are at:

2min. from the St Michel Cathedral, 'Palais des Princes', the historic city of Menton, listed house from the XVII century.

5min. on foot from the centre with a traditional covered market, shops and restaurants

2min. from the beach of (by the Traversée des Diamants), with a games centre for children.

The city centre and the promenade are fully accessible on foot. The Longue Street is also accessible for cars, temporarily, letting you be able to bring your luggage, get a taxi, etc. But the street becomes pedestrian and there is free parking at about 50 metres on the St Julien Square or a little further on Laurenti Avenue. Usually, you can just leave your car and walk into the city very easily since the traffic inside is organized very particularly. The apartment is on top of the fourth floor and has views of the sea and the mountains to Italy.

For the TGV station: you can get off at “Menton centre” but not on “Garavan”.

It is easy to come by foot (we did it in 20 minutes with trolley cases and children)

You will be welcomed at the reception by Ms. Delphine Amato We will send her your contact information at the time of booking. A security deposit is required upon reception of the keys and it will be returned after a check out at the end of the stay.

The cost of the EDF is additional according to a meter reading and the corresponding fees for 1KW (it is usually not that much). You can eventually decide in the different options with Ms. Delphine Amato.

Linen rental and cleaning services available on site if you wish.

The fees for the rental of the house linens is to be defined by Delphine: towels, sheets for the single and double beds as well as for the sofa bed.

The cleaning is done when you arrive.

Internet (optional): 1€ per day

Cable TV (in the upstairs bedroom) and water not included

Shops and excursions: Some useful information:

The shops and the market: Ms. Delphine Amato will show the best spots in the market and in Menton (the pedestrian streets are no further than 200m).

Excursions: Castillon Sospel Rocquebrune Gorbio is not that far away and even better the Madone d'Utelle is a half-day away in Nice. San Remo and Ventimiglia in Italy: if it were up to us we would choose the old town, and in our opinion any of the other places.

Honestly, a stay in this area would be beautiful in any season!

The apartment is located at the bottom left of the corridor and is opened by a second key.

Okay value, great location, needs a deep cleaning.

  • 3 of 5

First off, the good - the location was fabulous. Indeed very close to a very nice public beach and in the old heart of Menton, steps away from Saint-Michel Basilica. Owner seems nice enough, and it was easy to get into the apartment. And, the apartment was larger than expected. And things generally worked. Lots of stairs, but that was accurately described and was not a problem for us.

Having said that...this apartment is in desperate need of a deep cleaning. Walls, light switches, many corners of the apartment were dirty. Black tile grout, spots of possible mold on the ceiling of the downstairs bathroom. We felt compelled to buy come bleach cleaning wipes during our stay. Also, there is a smell coming out of the dishwasher that was extremely foul, and made my fiancee sick the first time we opened it. I'm sure it's some kind of plumbing issue.

Shutters are in need of some repair also, only one set of shutters opened, closed, and locked properly.

A deep cleaning, and maybe a fresh coat of paint would have improved my rating dramatically. Having said that, if you value location above all else, than this would be a good rental.

Impecable

  • 5 of 5

Wauw that's all I can say about this location. We stayed here a week and eventhough the girl who gives the keys wasn't there, and I had to call back and forth quite sometimes it was a nice stay! From email number one until the last day of our stay we felt like we were home. nice location, nice appartment. we wouldn't recomend this to people who are a bit older though, because there're alot of stairs and if you're carying bags, or groceries it can be difficult sometimes. 10 10 Impécable!

très jolie appartement

  • 4 of 5

Très mignon appartement. Pas besoin de prendre sa voiture tout est sur place avec le charme de la vieille ville de menton. Accueil téléphonique par le propriétaire très agréable. Sur place Madame Amato qui s'occupe de l'appartement est elle aussi très accueillante et nous donne des bons conseils pour passer un bon séjour. Je recommande cet appartement pour les personnes qui aime visiter et faire de la marche.

Appartamento in posizione strategica ma sporco

  • 2 of 5

Abbiamo passato 3 notti in questo appartamento (2 coppie). L'unica nota positiva è stata la posizione, nella parte storica della città, centrale e vicina alla spiaggia.

Peccato perchè sarebbe stato tutto perfetto se fosse stato pulito. Letti scomodissimi.
