This is a uniquely placed villa rental in Menton with plunge pool, being walking distance between two countries! Villa Olivier is a completely restored, classic early 1900s villa with an enviable position overlooking Menton, close to the border with Italy. It sits in a residential area surrounded by exotic Mediterranean flora and fauna and has superb views of the sea and harbour.Walking downhill, you can reach the sandy beach and harbour in just five minutes, or the old town in ten: both offer a variety of restaurants and cafes where you can wine and dine and soak up the delightful atmosphere. The Italian border is only 800 yards away, so you may enjoy the option of a stroll into Italy. Ventimiglia, just over the border, has a large, popular market on Fridays.
In the early 1900s many English aristocrats built houses in Menton, attracted by its favourable microclimate, and many of these wonderful villas are now open to the public. The principality of Monaco with its famous casino and Royal Palace is only 10 miles along the coastline.Why not have breakfast in France, overlooking Menton marina, lunch in Italy and dinner in Monaco? And instead of driving you can take the train, an excellent and popular means of transport along this fashionable stretch of the Riviera coast. Beach, port and restaurants 5 minutes walk. Menton centre 10 minutes walk. 800 yards to the Italian border (Friday market in Ventimiglia). Monte Carlo 5 miles. Nice town 20 miles, airport 25 miles. Sailing locally.
