It was home too of the great artist Jean Cocteau.
Menton is the perfect location for visiting the chic resorts of the French and Italian Riviera as the local train stops at all the famous towns like Monaco, Villefranche, Beaulieu, Eze, Nice, Cannes, Ventimiglia, San Remo.

"Fantastic location, great accommodation"
Le Pamela was everything promised in the description and reviews - and more. The sitting room and master bedroom have huge french windows that open onto a generous balcony overlooking the beach and th… More
It is wonderful to get such praise for our now favourite holiday apartment. After 10 years we now love to go there more often and those who like to rent it for their holidays have become friends. We are always thrilled with the views from that balcony too and even in Winter it is breathtaking and the underfloor heating means we can be cosy as we watch those wild waves sometimes...

Thank you so much for your good comments. We too, love the views to Italy and France and swim across the road daily. The best restaurants are each side of our apartment. Next time you can walk to Monaco or to the Italian border, or play your game of tennis across the road!
Visit again...even in Winter as we have underfloor heating and a cosy home from home!

Travelling with a 9 year old, and a 75 year old, my wife and I found this to be the perfect location. Beach just across the street. Very functional kitchen to make wonderful meals and excellent restaurants within walking distance.
The apartment has A/C which was very much appreciated. Well furnished and very spacious.
I will definitely rent this again in the future. A bargain for a couple or a small family.

"Stress Free Seaside Sojourn"
Arriving in Nice airport with parents in law, hassled wife and excited one year old could have been a stressful occasion. However, we had been given very accurate directions to the express bus which delivered us to its stop not 50 metres from the door of the apartment. Less than an hour to the door and the key was available as we had been told it would be.
The apartment is first class. On the seafront, to the extent that you'd almost be afraid of falling into the sea! All mod cons are provided, including WiFi, which we all seem to need these days. Everything is available to cook your own lovely meals from the shops which are very close by (3 -4 minute walk), but why bother when a helpful list of wonderful local restaurants is provided?
The beach is directly across from the apartment. The old centre of Menton is a very short stroll away (or again buses are easily available), and if feeling more adventurous, Nice is a leisurely one hour away (cost €1!!!).
In summary, five of us stayed comfortably in La Pamela; two couples and one baby (cot provided), ranging in ages from 1 to 70ish (I'm not allowed to be more accurate on the latter!). All enjoyed our stay and will return.
When the holiday was over we crossed the road (maybe 20 metres) to the express bus stop and 50 minutes later we were at Nice airport.
This is luxurious South of France the easy way! Enjoy!
