Trevor Reeves purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Trevor Reeves chose Menton Area

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

August 2013

Thank you so much for the use of the apartment, we had an absolutely fantastic time, perfect view , perfect location and the pool area made it for us!



July 2013

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Roquebrune. The weather was fantastic and the apartment was everything we could wish for. We were really surprised by the diversity of the area and enjoyed exploring the mountains as well as the stunning coastline.You are very lucky to have such an amazing place to retreat to!



June 2013

Thank you so much, when we got to your apartment we just relaxed completely. The apartment itself was perfect for what we needed and you never tire of the view. In fact the whole complex was just quiet and relaxing.

All in all we have had a great couple of weeks and we would definitely like to go back as there are still plenty of things to see!!

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. The one 2 mins from the residence, Roquebrune Marie) is less frequent.

Monaco is 5 minutes by car, Menton is also 5 minutes by car. Nice is 25 minutes on the highway and Cannes 1 hour. 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). Monte Carlo Rally, Historic Rally Monte Carlo - Monaco Tennis Masters - World Music Awards - Lemon Festival in Menton - Cannes Film Festival - Halloween at Stars and Bars (Monaco) is great for adults and kids (pre book tickets).

Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

This is one of our best stays in Europe. The bed is very comfortable, the bathroom is excellent (shower has great water pressure) and the view from the living room is stunning. It is a beautiful and very secure complex and the lift makes transporting luggage from car to condo very easy. With a grocery store and an excellent butcher just a few steps away, meal preparation was also very easy. Wish we could have spent more time in this comfortable condo.

Views and calm beyond expectation

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful apartment with fabulous views from the wonderfully shaded balcony.

The pool is large and we hardly saw anyone else in there. The kitchen was well equipped enough for our fully self-catering needs and the laundry facilities would be useful for a longer stay.

There are wonderful walks down and along the coast direct from the apartment with the surrounding gardens and water features adding to the serene calm.

A very well stocked and friendly shop only 2mins walk away was a massive bonus also.

Thank you to Trevor for being an amazing host who could not do enough for us. We shall hopefully return.

James & Nicole.

The apartment is well equipped, in a secure complex with well kept gardens and excellent views from the balcony, it is in an ideal location for local transport , and a supermarket only a two minute walk away. This is our fourth time to the apartment, Trevor has always been extremely helpful and we will definitely be going back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, repeat bookings are always welcome and attract a discount. We do our best to be available for any advice and help which Annette and I think is very important. I've even worked out how to use google translate to help with our non English speaking guests. Trevor Merci pour l'examen, les réservations de répétition sont toujours les bienvenues et attirent une réduction. Nous faisons de notre mieux pour être disponible pour tout conseil et aide qui Annette et je pense est très important. J'ai même travaillé sur la façon d'utiliser Google translate pour aider nos invités qui ne parlent pas anglais.

Highly recommended apartment in a lovely situation.

Still as enjoyable as the first time we stayed there. Very comfortable bed and a super terrace overlooking Monaco. Plenty of charming places to visit; mountain villages, Monaco and Monte Carlo for shops and Italy a few minutes away. We enjoyed all of it!

Beutifull Apartment with a great view.

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment with a lovely view from the balcony, both the apartment and the complex were very secure with underground parking. The apartment had everything we wanted for both relaxation and preparing meals. We have been coming to the Roquebrune/Menton area for about 17 yrs staying in various apartments but this one is a must for the future. Very good prompt communications with Trevor and his wife via both phone and email. Many thanks Keith and Patricia.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the review. We think having good communication is very important. Our availability by phone, text or email combined with the English speaking agent in Menton provides the service to make sure guests feel comfortable and secure that there is a source of information and help if required. One of the reasons we get many repeat guests is because they have that essential confidence. Trevor
