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.

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.

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.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are very lucky to have Karen as our local property manager so if you need anything she can assist you. We are also happy that you have already reserved for next year. Thanks so much for the parasols!

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.
Owner's Response: Thank you Barbara for your nice words and for taking the time to write this review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our apartment. Yes, Karen and Antonella from the local property management company are excellent and are there to make sure your stay is a great one.

We hope that you come back next year to our home in Menton.

Great apartment facing the sea

What a great place to spend a relaxing time on the Cote D'Azur. Menton is a much more affordable alternative to Monte Carlo and Cannes. Not so much drama like these other places and you get to meet locals who are both French and Italian in their way of being and the food.

The apartment is lovely. The owners seem to really care about the place. Nicely painted, fresh and clean. I have stayed at other places where linens were old and towels not soft. Here the opposite is true. The furniture is comfortable, the artwork on the walls inviting and the Wi Fi worked great. I had stayed at another place that advertised Wi-Fi but I could hardly get a signal. Here I was even able to download music without a problem.

I really liked the Rue Longue where the apartment is located. You can walk everywhere and enjoy all that Menton has to offer without having to rent a car.

When you come home you can enjoy the view of the sea from every window in the living room and dining room. The balcony is super sweet and I really enjoyed sitting there and watching the water and looking at the mountains of Italy.

We took a bus to Monte Carlo for the day which was much fun but when you get back to Menton the vibe is much more relaxed than Monaco. There are so many wonderful restaurants within walking distance that you don't really have to cook. There is a kitchen in the apartment but I have to admit I did not do much cooking since the choice of restaurants is terrific.

If you want a nice relaxing time in an apartment close to everything, this is the place for you.
Owner's Response: Thank you Stephany for your nice review.

We are glad you enjoyed our apartment and look forward to hosting you again in the future. Yes, we agree, the location of the apartment is one of the reasons we purchased it. We like to walk so our location is ideal. We also love the view of the sea, there is nothing so relaxing to us as looking at the water.

We hope that if you return to Menton you will book with us again!

Fantastic location next to beach and restaurants

My 24 year old daughter and I spent 10 days in this wonderful apartment. We had such a great time together. Since the place is centrally located to everything, we took some great long walks and had quality mother-daughter time. It's so much fun when your kids get to an age that you can share vacations.

The Rue Pietone, which is a pedestrian mall, is just a block from the apartment. I say a "block" but its not one in the traditional sense. Rather, you walk out the apartment front door, through the old city stone streets, past the church and you arrive at the Place du Cap. This is a lovely plaza with restaurants, gardens and shopping. All with a view of the Mediterranean Sea from every angle.

There was a great bakery nearby which had the most delicious croissants and I got to practice my French. The folks were so willing to help me since I was at least trying with my very rusty French despite the fact that my daughter made fun of me the whole time. We had so many great laughs!

The balcony was my favorite place. We could watch the sail boats and the beach below. The Wi-Fi was strong and I got to play "words with friends" on the balcony with my I pad. Life is good!

I recommend this apartment because the place is lovely, not overly-decorated and has a very happy vibe. The comforts of home were everywhere including the comfy furniture and the place was spotless clean, something that is very important to me.
Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your nice review. We are glad you and your daughter enjoyed yourselves in our apartment. Thanks for the suggestion you gave us when you visited to add a microwave oven. We purchased a brand new one and it works great. We welcome suggestions from our guests so we can make your holiday better. We hope you will visit us again soon!

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.
