Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment had many advantages to offer. The location was above a bakery & butcher shop. Around the corner from a produce stand and small grocery store as well. Did I mention that is a block off the beach? Miceala was exceptional friendly and helpful (speaking several languages too.). We felt right at home for the week. No need for a car either because the train station is less than 10 mins by foot. Note: the building has an elevator.

A wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

I have been to this apartment a number of times now and always come home feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to get back to my busy life!! The Lemon Festival was another great experience.The apartment is very well situated with shops, bars and cafes all within walking distance and the apartment itself is very well equipped. Flat screen TV and plenty of creature comforts to make you feel at home. Thinking of when to book my next trip!?!

Maison Picco, Menton

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this apartment in the centre of Menton. It was perfectly located at about 1km from the old town and from the main railway station. It is also 200m from the beach.

The building is safe and secure and the apartment is very clean and nicely decorated. Because it is a family-owned apartment, it has all the facilities that a traveller could need. We were particularly impressed with the new flat screen TV which had many foreign language stations and also with the extremely effective wifi network.

Despite its central position, the apartment is quiet; downstairs there is a boulangerie where you can buy fresh croissants in the morning (we loved it).

We don't drive and it was possible to go everywhere we wanted by public transport or on foot. If you turn right out of the apartment, you can walk to Rocquebrune-Cap Martin. Turn left and you will soon be in Italy!

Great flat!

  • 5 of 5

This flat is very well furnished throughout with very good taste and a very well equipped kitchen and bathroom, flat screen TV, DVD, WiFi etc. Maison Picco is perfectly positioned, very near the sea, a ten minute walk from the old town with its beautiful beach and lively restaurants, it is close to the station and is very well served with several bus routes, so perfect for ‘car-less’ couples like us! There are several supermarkets within walking distance and all the amenities of a busy town including a lively indoor market. Menton is superbly placed to visit other parts of the Côte d’azur, Monaco and Italy. We thoroughly recommend the flat and Menton itself with its fantastic climate. We will definitely return!

Well-appointed, well-positioned

  • 5 of 5

A very well-appointed, clean and warm apartment. The building is very attractive, the lift works extremely well and the bread baked downstairs is first-rate. From the wide-screen TV, the Wi-Fi and the crockery, everything was first-class. Positioned just one row back from the sea and a wide variety of excellent restaurants, the apartment is very close to the dividing Avenue separating Roquebrune-Cap-Martin from Menton where the parking starts to become free.

It is only a short, pleasant stroll either alongside the sea or via attractive shopping streets to the Old Town with it's eclectic mix of restaurants, snack-bars and gift shops.

For cleanliness, convenience and the service provided by the owner and his representative on the spot, I can only say "Thank You, Very Much."
