"Quiet mountainside retreat"

Nice, spacious apartment with very welcoming hosts who went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
The apartment is near the top of a col, so considerably cooler than the coast - a relief when it's hot! It's also a 20 min drive from the motorway up a continuously winding road so be prepared for that.
There was lots of information in the apartment for things to do in the region, as well as maps and phrase book. Loads of room for two people, with a well-equipped kitchen and a lounge with tv etc.
The outside terrace area gets lots of sun in the morning and daytime so is a great place to sit and have breakfast. The gardens are steep and terraced but full of flowers and wildlife, with views of the surrounding mountains, down the valley and from some angles down to the sea.
The lack of public transport is a real shame, as there's nothing within safe walking distance, so a car has become a necessity (apparently the local bus has decided not to stop outside the apartment this year, meaning you need to go to the next village down the mountain, about 1 mile away). We drove over the top of the col to Sospel, about 6km away where there's a train station - from here you can go down to Nice or further inland. Trains and buses along the coast are very cheap and were reliable.
On very hot days it would be nice if the pool was in use, but the apartment remains cool so is a good retreat from the sun.
It was generally a peaceful place to stay, however as it's near the top of a mountain at the end of a valley with lots of hairpin bends it's popular with both cyclists and motorcyclists... the latter are audible from a long way off and tend to shatter the peace!

"Quiet and peaceful haven"

The area is great for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Quiet and secluded, but with amenities a short car ride away. We loved sitting on the balconies watching out over the views. It is situated in a beautiful country location and ideal for visiting nice French villages and costal resorts are within easy reach. Very limited public transport, so car is a necessity.

Self-catering but host provides cooking equipment.

TV in living area with British freeview and French channels. DVD and CD also avaliable. Free wifi avaliable with good access.

Owners were very helpful and helped us understand the area and main attractions.

"Absolutely beautiful house, perfect holiday, mountains,beach,restaurants,"

This house is situated in the mountains just behind Menton. It is tranquil, fully equipped luxury house with lots of character. A bus ride away, or a short drive to Sospel and Menton where there are plenty of restaurants, shops, beaches, train to Italy, transport to Nice airport easy. Bus goes from near the house. Enjoyed days at the beach then returned to the house for a dinner on the terrace watching sun go down over mountain, perfect.
