Why Trevor Reeves chose Roquebrune-Cap-Martin
We were looking to buy on the Riviera for a weekend retreat. On our first trip to view, the agent took us around Nice and west to Cannes and last of all, East to Cap Martin. The weather was terrible and grim. We decided that if the view was brilliant under those circumstances then we were on to a winner. The view and location absolutely sold it. As a new build, the marketing brochure made much of the proximity to Monaco and the contrast offered by the residence to the intensity of Monte Carlo. We can only concur with the sentiments. The closeness of Nice Airport and low cost flights meant that our weekend retreat aim was met in full. The renowned beauty of the area and the closeness of Monaco with its Rally, GP's, Tennis and other international events made this the perfect place for us.
What makes this Apartment unique
Situated in a beautiful location, the stunning view from the logia makes this a lovely place to enjoy an easy breakfast or relax with a drink at the end of a busy day. The residence, with its pool, changing rooms, bathroom facilities, loungers and parasols for the summer is complimented by the closeness of the winter resorts of the Alp Maritimes ski areas in winter. The residence is quiet and the secure underground parking make these welcome and stress free benefits for this area of the South of France. The apartment is located on the top floor, which ensures no noise from upstairs and the lift access is really convenient for those over packed, heavy suitcases! . The residence Guardien lives on site for an immediate contact and our local agent is a only a phone call or text away in Menton

Our whole family loved the stay and the apartment!
Trevor’s apartment is a clean, well prepared unit in a beautiful, quiet and safe area. The instructional materials were thoughtful and well cratfted. Although the apartment is well suited for guests with a car, we were able able to get around easily without a car by walking and using the bus 100 from a nearby street, and the train from the Carnoles stop (about a 15 minute walk down a pedestrian sidewalk on the way to Menton). The paths around Cap Martin and along Cap d’ail were beautiful and not crowded with tourists. One highlight was walking up to the old Roquebrune perched village with incredible views from the castle, and great restaurant Au Grand inquesiteur. (If you walk to that area be careful to avoid the most direct routes that require walking around roads with fast cars and few sidewalks). We also enjoyed walks into Menton, and trips to Ventimiglia Italy by train, The vibe is different east of the Italian border and the Friday market (and daily large produce markets) is appealing. The view from the apartment deck is great. The shower is strong and refreshing. The pool was large and a great respite after long walks on warm days. The local store was hugely helpful. The air conditioner was a nice plus. Overall we were very pleased with our stay and would like to come back!

Perfect place to look out and distress
Lovely apartment, fantastic views, safe and tranquil
Easy to see why this has such high reviews. Everything was as promised. The acess from the car park space was great and the local shops meant every thing was on hand. The view is exceptional and the tranquility of the residence with its trickling water features is so relaxing. Can't wait to come again in summer.
Coast/Beach: 2 mins drive or 10-15 mins walk (down steps) to Roquebrune beach on the Menton side of Cap Martin or 3 mins drive or 20 mins walk to Roquebrune Cabbe (Monaco side of Cap Martin) both are stony beaches. The beach at the Lavorotto in Monaco is is a coarse sand and has some classy eateries on the beach. Menton, 5 minutes walk from Roquebrune is similar to Monaco. The bus is an easy way to get about to the beaches and towns. the buses are clean, airconditioned, efficient and inexpensive. Travel: Nice, the nearest airport is approx 25 minutes by car on the A8 motorway. The bus service is quite inexpensive and takes around 1 hr 15 minutes, however a car is recommended for your stay. By foot the train station (Carnoles) is 15/20 minutes away. There are 2 bus stops near the residence. The one 5 mins from the residence (Riva Bella) has a 10-15 minute service to Monaco or Menton.

All traffic dependant of course! Further Details: Shore fishing is available all round the cape of Cap Martin at the bottom of the residence grounds or in Menton off the arms built into the sea. Boat fishing is available from Menton and Monaco. We've not tried the parapenting on the hills above but looks like good fun for the brave. Suggest you make your own enquiries. The Southern Ski resorts of Isola 2000 and Auron are one and a half to 2 hours away by car. It is possible to hire a helicopter from Monaco Which takes about 15 minutes. Ski hire is easy and with an early start (say 7.00) you can be on the slopes by 10.00. Ski till 4 or 5 and be back to dine by the sea in the evening. The resorts are also open in summer for hill walking. Events in the area - Monaco Grand Prix (May) and the Monaco Historic Grand Prix (every 2 years on the even year the week prior to the FIA Grand Prix).
