Further details

Although children are welcome and Menton has a welcoming beach and is very popular with families, we suggest that families with toddlers think twice about rental, we wish to avoid scribbling on walls ! . Thank you for being considerate and understanding that you are staying in a gorgeous home and that out of respect it should be returned thus......

The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region

The Mediterranean area is spectacular boasting a micro climate and sunshine for over 300 days of the year. Enjoy swimming in the summer months, ski during the winter, walk in the Parc du Mercantour and visit Italy.

Beaches are all along the coast and stunning mountains lead you to discover small villages with local cafes and restaurants. Make the most of Nice, Cannes and glamorous Monte Carlo. Palm trees and beautiful gardens are all around.


Menton is famous for its Lemon Festival that takes place in February/ March which animates the town. Menton boasts a micro-climate and you can find yourself sitting at cafes and restaurants outside in a t shirt during the winter months.

There are beautiful gardens to visit, ,museums, and of course many hours can be spent relaxing on the beach or walking along the sunny promenade. The old town with its car free streets is pleasant and the local market is full of local produce and delicious cheeses and Wine.

In August Menton hosts a classical music festival and the famous Musee Cocteau is worth a visit. Nearby mountains set a spectacular scene. Ski resorts are an hour away from Menton in Italy or France.

Close to the Principality of Monaco (six minute train ride), why not visit the famous Grand Prix route, or visit the Casino in Menton and Monaco. Of course Nice with its many museums, old town and flea market on a Monday is worth visiting and only 20 mins by train.

"Surreal,elegant apartment""

Arriving in Menton on 27 May by train from Paris, we were warmly greeted by the delightful Caroline and shown her elegantly furnished,spacious Winter palace apartment. As we planned to stay 11 days we were a little apprehensive but what a pleasant surprise. Caroline is obviously a very talented interior designer. We loved staying there and would have loved to stay longer. We enjoyed cooking some meals there, dining out for others in Menton which is ideally suited for bus or train travel to Monaco, Villefranche-sur-mer,, Cannes and other fascinating places. The bus and train stations are located at the bottom of the hill below the Winter Palace. Caroline could not have been kinder or more helpful . All of her suggestions for restaurants and places to visit were spot on. We would highly recommend Caroline's apartment and Menton.

"A fantastic apartment with all you can dream of"

The Winter Palace is situated on a hill, surrounded by palm trees, flowers etc. It's a dream come through. From all rooms of the apartment there is a fantastic view over the city to the Mediterranian. The apartment is decorated a bit like the 'art nouveau' style - it's really charming and you feel you are in a private home, not in a rented flat. There is everything you need. It is indeed 'all inclusive'. You are at the beach within 10 - 15 min's walk, you have shopping, cafés and restaurants within close walking distance. Menton is a charming town. We can recommend a visit to the Jean Cocteau museum and a walk in the old town. It's easy to go to Nice where the Chagall museum is a 'must' - just like the chapel in Vence. We will certainly come back!
