SPECTACULAR PANORAMIC WATERFRONT APARTMENT RUE LONGUE-FREE WI-FI

Menton Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Beautifully decorated apartment, endless water-views & central Menton location

Fully refurbished and newly decorated in February 2014, you will find every luxury and convenient amenity in this holiday rental: Free high speed Wi-Fi, satellite television, washer and dryer, fully stocked American kitchen; air conditioning, microwave oven, coffee pot, full range with oven and 4- top electric stove. New upgraded mattresses that sleep 4 comfortably.

Our apartment is located on the Rue Longue, the most historic and oldest street in Menton. Our building is nearly 700 years old and exudes charm. The building is in good condition for its age as the apartments have been refurbished. We are on the top floor, 3 flights up a somewhat steep staircase.

The Old Town of Menton is home to many fine restaurants, bars, water activities,museums and a casino. The Plage des Sablettes, Menton's only sandy beach, is located directly in front of our apartment. You can watch your loved ones swimming from our balcony and wave them upstairs when lunch is ready!

The Mediterranean Sea glistens its many shades of blue at different times of the day. Whether you are going to the beach or walking to dinner at one of the many fine restaurants, Menton has it all!

Thanks to a beneficial subtropical micro climate (316 sunny days a year), winter is practically unknown in Menton. Therefore, you can enjoy a beautiful sea and the nearby sunny mountains all year round.

Menton is on the borders of Italy, the Principality of Monaco and the Comté de Nice. Paradise of gardens, Menton is also a unique display of architecture. These have molded this “Secret Riviera” paradise where you can walk in the footsteps of famous names.

From Queen Victoria to Jean Cocteau, countless people have come to this magical setting to re-kindle the authentic.

The scents, colours and tranquility, but also the diversity of the activities that can be practiced here throughout the year, make Menton “The Pearl of France”, as stated by the geographer Élysée Reclus.

Moreover, the town is the first town of the Alpes-Maritimes to receive the designation “City of Art and History”. Menton is the citrus capital of France and its world renowned Fete du Citron in late February is a 3 week festival celebrating all things citrus!

Menton is a great romantic getaway, a place to relax and relish the old world charm and quiet serenity of the French Riviera.

We fell in love with Menton over our several trips here. There is so much to do. The botanical gardens, the restaurants, the beach, and the culture. We also fell in love with the people. They are gentle, they are very courteous to us when we speak our less than perfect French. There is also a nice mixture of French and Italian culture so the food choices are superb. We looked at several properties and we liked some of them. But when we walked into what is now our apartment, our jaws literally dropped with amazement. It was love at first sight. We walked right in to the large doors that lead to our balcony, took a look at the view and knew this was the place. We also loved the elegance and privacy of the Rue Longue. It is a special and quiet place. You can not drive a car down this road unless you have a special clicker which is reserved for residents of our street. Therefore it is mostly a pedestrian-only street that is very quiet. Our apartment is a 'through and through' meaning one side fronts the sea and the other fronts the Rue Longue. It was actually two apartments that were combined years ago which offers lots of room to relax and unwind.

The apartment exudes charm. From the high ceilings, and arches to the thick concrete venetian plaster walls, you know you are in an historic building. The location and view are the two top benefits. You absolutely do not need a car in the the Old Town. You can take an express bus for 18 EUR from the Nice airport or the train from Nice. Both are a few blocks away when you arrive. The view of the sea is amazing. Since we are on the top floor, you can see for miles and miles and just see water and mountains in your view. This makes it a special getaway for us and for our friends. We recently renovated the windows and doors with modern, double pane glass to enhance a quiet experience indoors. The windows are very large and allow for great Mediterranean breezes from the sea. We are right on the first row of buildings and our only neighbor in front is the sea.

STUNNING VIEWS AND A GEM OF A LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The apartment had been recently decorated and everything was immaculate throughout. We had been excited to arrive, but even our wildest dreams hadn't prepared us for the beauty as we opened the front door and entered, and that was before we'd even got near the balcony and seen the stunning views over the Med and in to Italy.

Menton itself is a lovely town, enough life to keep you entertained but not so much that you feel rushed or pressured. The pace of life is ideal for a relaxing break in the sun.

We stayed for a week and would definitely return, and are in fact already thinking ahead to 2015...

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. It took us a while to renovate and we are also happy with the result. The contractors in France still have that old fashioned work ethic and pride in their work! We hope that you do indeed visit us again next year. Thanks again for taking the time to review our apartment.

EXCELLENT WITH BREATHTAKING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
My wife, daughter and I stayed here as a base for the Monaco F1. The apartment is lovely, really tastefully decorated and has all the usual home appliances that all worked very well. It was very easy to get in and out of Monaco from here so would definitely look at staying here again rather than Nice where we've stayed in the past. On our arrival, Karen was very helpful and informative, gave us the detailed walk through and offered her services should we need anything else during our stay. She even dropped us off at the train station to save messing with taxis on our day of departure (thanks Karen, very much appreciated). The apartment is nestled in the old town and has fantastic views towards Italy and Menton harbour and has numerous restaurants in the close vicinity serving a good range of cuisines at reasonable prices. We had a really enjoyable stay here with a couple of days relaxing on the beach too after the F1. Many thanks to the owners and the property management for making things so seamless for us. Roger, Tracey and Jennifer

EXCELLENT APARTMENT IN VERY GOOD LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We flew into Nice and then took the bus from the airport to Menton. As we arrived mid-week Karen was able to meet us at the bus station (and took us back for the return). The apartment was even better than the photos on the web site, as it had recently been refurbished and all the appliances were top of the range. The view is wonderful at all hours of the day (and night!) The steps are steep, but we are both well into our 70s and managed them - and it's worth it when you get to the top! We had chosen Menton as a base for exploring gardens, and we were able to see all the ones we wanted - plus an extra, as we were there over a "garden weekend". Taking up a suggestion from Karen, who was extremely helpful, we visited Gorbio and St Agnes, two mountain villages, travelling on the local bus, and both these expeditions were memorable. We had some lovely meals out, but enjoyed eating in and watching the light gradually fade over the sea. Magic! The only downside was that there was no house book giving details of shopping, restaurants, transport and how to work the appliances, but I gather that this is forthcoming. Also, be aware that the road along the sea front is busy and noisy at some times of the day - but of course you can't hear it if the windows are closed.
I would recommend this apartment without hesitation. We had a wonderful holiday.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your nice review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. As to your suggestion for a "house book", we will be back to our apartment this summer and will be doing this. We will also be adding a wireless printer so if guests need to print any documents they can do so. For example, you would be able to print your boarding passes for flights prior to leaving the apartment.

When we renovated, we paid special attention to the windows. When you are in the center of the city, especially on the waterfront, the road below is active. As you mentioned, the double-pane news windows do the trick to keep the noise out. Since we also added air conditioning, you can close the windows and enjoy the cool air conditioned air.

We appreciate that you took the time to write this review. Have a wonderful summer!

BREATHTAKING VIEW AND CLOSE TO EVERYTHING

  • 5 of 5
We had the most excellent time in a truly wonderful place to stay. Morning coffee and fresh croissants from the bakery down the street were enjoyed with the greatest view anyone could ask for. The apartment is beautifully decorated and yet very comfortable, clean and well maintained. There is so much to do that is right out the front or back door. Great restaurants, cafes, shops and gardens are within a few minutes walk. Monte Carlo is just a short bus or train ride away. We definitely are looking forward to a return trip.

C'EST MAGNIFIQUE!

C'est magnifique!
  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic week in Menton, enjoying the sun, beach and general atmosphere. We were surprised by the size of Menton, not expecting quite as many shops, bars and restaurants, but were pleased to see these and to note how the town still manages to retain it's charm despite it's popularity. We were constantly struck by the beauty of the surrounding buildings and have taken hundreds of photographs!
We found it very easy to buy all the self catering essentials and fresh croissants from a local boulangerie. The apartment was excellent; spacious, comfortable, clean and with a fabulous view. We got up early on several occasions to enjoy the view of the sunrise! The wi-fi was very useful as was the washing machine. There are plenty of shops in town to buy all beach essentials; we bought and left two parasols - we needed the shade! Karen was very helpful, particularly when we were organising our arrival and departure - thanks again!
We had several days lounging on the beach. The kids loved swimming in the sea, particularly the right hand side of the bay which has been modified to reduce rocks under foot and to avoid any sharp increases in water depth. Lovely croque monsieurs from the very reasonable beach snack bar!
The town is great and ideally positioned for easy access to Monaco and other coastal towns on the train line. Lovely views from the train as you journey along!
We are already planning next year's return.

LOVELY SPACIOUS APARTMENT WITH INCREDIBLE VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay for two weeks. Who couldn't enjoy the lovely and interesting town of Menton and that beautiful stretch of coast?! To top it off the apartment was so comfortable and had everything we could need.

It was immaculate, spacious and with the most incredible views from the living and dining areas. So lovely to sit on the balcony enjoying it. We appreciated the new, double-glazed windows and balcony doors, fast wi-fi with its range extender and great TV. The main bedroom is on the Rue Longue side, so nice and quiet.

We enjoyed the atmosphere of being in the old town and never far to walk to the endless selection of great restaurants and along the sea front and harbor. We must mention also that Karen and Antonella at the agency are so nice and couldn't be more helpful.

Menton is an amazing city. The most incredible views of the sea and weather make this a relaxing vacation experience. Menton is sunny and warm in the summer and sunny and cool in the winter. We have 316 days of sunshine every year!

There are great restaurants featuring both French and Italian cuisines. You can also find delicious Indian, Greek, Moroccan and Asian Cuisine. There are several botanical gardens which we really enjoy visiting. The new Jean Cocteau museum is steps from our home. We enjoy hanging out at the Place de Cap and it's many restaurants. The Rue Pietone provides wonderful shopping convenient to our apartment. You can jump on the train to Cinqua Terra, a beautiful 5-town city in Italy. San Remo is not far away. You can jog to Monte Carlo or take the 1 EUR bus from Menton to any destination on the French Riviera. You will never be bored in Menton. We enjoy walking through the medieval city and it's many interesting architectural gems.

The beach is right in front of our apartmentnt. The sand is soft and the water is deliciously refreshing.

The people in Menton are warm and friendly. They have both French and Italian lineage which creates a very charming and lovely group of locals. They are patient if your French is not perfect and will revert to Italian or English if they see you struggling with the language. The folks here bend over backwards to make you feel at home in their beautiful city.
