On top of a hill, 10 mins from Menton's old town, take advantage of the peace and incredible place of Villa Baïna to indulge yourself in the infinity pool and the sea front. Unless you prefer to read or enjoy your siesta under the lemontrees? Here, your time suspends its course. Everything is farniente, calm and delight.
The Villa Baïna is a travel invitation in itself.
Owned by an international family : Franco-Italo-Polish, this house smells like holidays, calm and discoveries. Sabrina, the tenant, has developed her taste of travel very early, through the influence of her parents. After an exciting 1,5 years roundaworld backpacker's trip in 2011, she decided to give back the wonderful experience she encountered in guesthouse traveling during her journey, to travelers who wish to visit Menton and its surroundings in a different way.
From the sculptures in the garden, hidden between lemontrees, olivetrees, fruitrees, bamboos or even plamtrees, to the paintings and photos of views taken all over the world, in the house: Everything in this villa invites the guest to travel and dream.
The 32ksqu ft property, entirely fenced, with 3 parking spaces, has its own infinity pool with a view on Menton harbour and the Italien Riviera. The pool can be heated from April to November, on demand. It is not guarded but can be secured with a cover when unused. It is surrounded by a solarium with long chairs on one side, and lemontrees plantation on the other.
Several terrasses with parasols and sunshades are at your disposal, as well as a covered patio in front of the pool, with a fitness area, a bar and an exterior dining zone for 10 people.
The 1.3k square feet house, on 3 levels can host 4 people. We received the 3-stars quality certification from the tourism office in november 2015.
The villa is composed of :
- One double room (Double bed) with private bathroom with shower, a small living room and a private terrasse.
- One 2nd double room (Double bed) with private bathroom and direct access to the patio and swimming pool area.

Originally from the south of France, we decided, after several years working in Paris and a wonderful roundaworld backpack trip done in 2011, to give back to our guests the nice welcoming experience we received during our trip.
We love travels, meetings with people from different cultures, reading, gastronomy and oenology. We are particularly committed to the idea of welcoming travelers and making them discover the life in our region, as a local would experience it, with tips off the beaten tracks. Speaking also several languages, we love to talk with visitors about their culture, their country, their food, their habits. Our aim is to provide our guests the comfort and hospitality they would as if they were at home.
Sabrina Broggini purchased this villa in 1975
This villa is a family house. We have made many changes throughout the years, with personal touches such as paintings, sculptures, and pictures of our trips, that makes this place warm and interesting. The location, the calm, the views and the beautiful infinity pool make the rest.
With its 32ksqu ft of land planted with citrus of Menton which we strive to relocate and expand, its infinity pool and its position at the top of a hill overlooking the sea and the mountains, all 10 mins away from the old town of Menton, the Villa Baïna is the ideal place to relax, while discovering the nearby attractions offered by the French Riviera. We are proud to say that we have received the 3-star quality certification from the tourism office in november 2015.
The French Riviera, Monte-Carlo, Nice, Cannes, its luxuous hotels, yachts, VIPs etc... The region can man some dream while it can also make others, in search for sun and simplicity, run away. Menton is part of those cities that reconcile luxe and authenticity.
Its micro-climat is the warranty of a sunny stay. 20 mins away from 'Vintimiglia' in Italy and its famous Friday market. 30 mins from 'Monaco', its yachts, its casino, its Formula1 Grand Prix, the Tennis Open, the prince's palace and its numerous museums. 20 mins from 'St Agnès', the highest village of the Mediterrean sea, its fort and old provençal houses. 40 mins from 'Eze Village', this typical village with little streets, and its perfume manufactures. 40 mins away from Nice, 50mins from Cannes. This makes Menton a destination of choice for people who want to mix farniente, calm and tourism.
'Villa Baïna', on top of a residential hill, 10 mins away from Menton's old town, offers peace, unbeatable view and high standard comfort.
Even if the house is 10 mins away from the historical center of Menton, you'll however need a private transport to access the villa.
Menton is accessible by car through the highway, by train and by plane from the Nice International airport.
From the airport, the express bus line 110 leaves every 30mins and goes all the way to Menton, its terminus for 20€/pers.
From the center of Menton, where you can rent private transport if you wish, the access to the villa is done through a small road (around 2miles because the roads goes up and comes back towards the center of town). Once installed, it's possible to go downtown by walk, in 10 mins by a more direct walking path. Count about 20-25 minutes to walk back up. Ideal for days at the beach, or evening digestive walks to see the animation of the center of town. The uphill walk a a bit more difficult, since we are on a hill, but you'll be happier to jump in the swimming pool for a midnight swim. Calm and view is something that needs to be deserved!
To reach the house by car : In front of Menton cityhall, turn right, and go straight. On your left, you'll pass by 'Les Galeries Lafayette', continue straight on the uphill road which quickly turns left, next to the St Michel church. Follow this road for about 1 mile before turning right (in a curve where the main road turns left) on 'Chemin du Baousset'. Follow this road uphill until you reach a plateau with 2 junctions. Take the right uphill one, the 'Chemin de la colle supérieure' and follow it until you reach our 'Villa Baïna' post-sign on the right. Parking in the property.
