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.
