Four weeks in Menton. We recommend this apartment.
This apartment conforms accurately to the its description here. Additionally it is very well equipped. As the owners live within driving range, they can ensure the cleanliness and general condition of the apartment. It is thus also possible for them to meet you on arrival. They will check that you are comfortable and can deal with any problems. The main bed folds away easily, the addition bed is like a "zed bed", which we didn't try. (when not in use it is un-noticeable). We found it a trouble-free apartment.
The sixth (top) floor apartment has excellent views over the town and the sea, with a terrasse that is big enough for any purpose. The lift works, the front entrance to the set of apartments is secured.
The bus station and the train station are within five minutes walk, giving easy and cheap access to the coast, Italy, and the mountains and mountain villages in the interior. TGV direct to/from Paris each day; busses every 30 mintues to/from Nice airport, every 15 minutes to Nice via Monaco and all villages in between.. Menton is a good centre. Car drivers may have to look around a bit for parking
Several butchers, boulangeries, a small supermarket, a daily street market, and other shops and services are nearby: The sea front is ten minutes or so walk away.
We were there for the annual Lemon festival (mid February to early March), which is well organised and spectacular. Plenty of other events and sights. There is coast and mountain walking at all fitness levels. There are plenty of restaurants in the town centre and on the sea front. The historic town centre is about 15 minutes' walk; if this is a bit far for you , there are always busses.
So we'd recommend this apartment.
