Peace and quiet
We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay in this delightful little flat. The outlook onto the tree-filled Square des Etats-Unis gave us the peace and quiet we were looking for. The flat is ideally situated for the sea-front, the elegant shopping streets, the market and old town and the railway and bus stations. We had an excellent contact with both the owner and Fabrice, who was on the spot to resolve any issues. We would happily return on another occasion.
Thank you so much for your comprehensive review which highlights the ideal location, facilities and peacefulness of the apartment.Our english speaking concierge, who is resident in the building, is indeed a great bonus for our guests.We happily look forward to your return visit to beautiful Menton "the Pearl of France".

Wonderful apt. in wonderful location.
My husband and I just spent 3 weeks in this well appointed comfortable and spacious apt. It is ideally located in the centre of town and just minutes to the beach. The owner was very considerate and prompt with replies. The building caretaker is invaluable - pleasant, knowledge and extremely helpful. We hope to return some day.
Historic Building, Great Location
This apartment is an ideal location for an extended stay in Menton, conveniently located near shops, cafes, restaurants, trains station and a short walk to the old town. And best of all it is a block from the Mediterranean. Nicely equipped (including a fully stocked kitchen with a dishwasher) and clean I found the apartment perfect for me. Also, a plus was the friendly and helpful concierge who continually asked me if I needed any assistance of any kind. Which was rather nice, as by the time I was staying here I was traveling alone. So, it was nice to see a friendly face everyday.
Many thanks for your detailed review.It will be of great benefit to potential renters as you have mentioned all the essential facilities our apartment has to offer for a successful holiday in beautiful Menton. Adrian
The apartment was very clean, very comfortable, and in quiet location and near everything. The owner was very responsive to inquiries. I would definitely stay here again.
Many thanks. Hope you will return at some time in the future. Adrian
Good central position
We had a great holiday in Menton and the flat is ideally placed to quickly access all the transport, beach, shop and restaurant facilities. There are two good sized bedrooms, twin and a double and showers had a good supply of hot water. Fabrice the concierge was always on hand and eager to assist. There is air conditioning in the flat which services the lounge and twin bedroom, but the door has to be left open to benefit, compromising privacy. The double (master) bedroom misses out and has a ceiling fan which is not the quietest. Again this room benefits slightly when door is open but compromises privacy. The kitchen units (not appliances) are in need of upgrading as the melamine is peeling from doors and the cutlery drawer was held in place by sticky tape. The walls, ceilings and doors would also benefit from a fresh lick of paint. Most of these issues raised may be as a result of a busy season. We were two couples sharing and occupied the twin room. Access to toilet/shower facilities meant a walk from the room via kitchen and lounge. We did enjoy our stay in the apartment due to its location but the issues raised would prevent us from returning.
Thanks for your review.Our apartment is very popular and is fully booked out every year until the end of October.The Summer period is particularly busy with families, couples etc enjoying the excellent conveniences it has to offer.Many of our guests have returned 3 & 4 times.The apartment was originally a suite from a former Belle Epoque hotel and we have kept some of its beautiful authentic features.All repairs including decoration and aircon service are carried out annually during the quiet month of November. Many thanks.
So good we keep coming back
My family have stayed here several times now which is praise indeed as we never went to the same place twice before. Location is perfect - close to the beach, attractions and transport links but also quiet, the apartment faces the lovely courtyard garden so you are not troubled by traffic noise as you would be by most town centre apartments. Clean, attractive and well appointed accommodation. Happiest memory: popping out in the morning to the neighbouring bakery and eating our croissants on the beach as the sun rose. can't get better than that. Fabrice the concierge is amazingly helpful, going well beyond what you might normally expect - got his own GP to come out and see our poorly toddler at 4pm on Christmas eve - all was well in the end, thanks to Fabrice and not my travel insurer!
Thank you for your comprehensive review which will be a great benefit to our future guests. We are delighted that you enjoyed our apartment in beautiful Menton.
