A wonderful apartment in a beautiful part of the old town, overlooking the Menton beach and harbour to the east. Spectacular views, cosy environment. This was our second stay here and we will certainly be back as we feel very much at home by now. Do explore the old town, especially following the routes towards the cemetery or Rue Longue heading away from the hustle and bustle of the centre.
This place is perfect for a restful, peaceful holiday where you can put your feet up, enjoy a book and a glass of wine while looking at the gorgeous views. We even started feeling a bit local-people on the street say 'bonjour' to you and smile. When you feel like a bite, the town's restaurants and excellent food market (open 9-1 / 7 days a week) cannot disappoint. For a bit of culture, try the Jean Cocteau museum or the town's excellent prehistoric museum.
Checking in and out was easy, the apartment was clean and we did our best to leave it like that when we left. Getting a taxi from the Menton train station to Place de la Concepcion (which is as close as you can get to the apartment) was bit of a problem, as some taxi drivers don't want to bother with the steep and narrow streets of the old town. When we checked out we rang a taxi (with the help of the owners' agent Catherine who negotiated the finer details) and it arrived to the little square no problem.
If only we had more time....
