The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Menton lies on the Riviera coast to the south east of France, very close to the border with Italy. To the west lies the towns of Monte Carlo and Nice, both world renowned. Menton has it’s own microclimate, the warmest area of the entire French Riviera in winter, protected from the mistral winds by the half-circle of mountains behind it. Lemon trees bear fruit all year, and its lavish gardens blossom during most seasons. The 'light' is what brought painters to the region and the clarity of views with stillness combine to make it a really memorable place to visit.
Winter sunshine -- there were 305 sunny days last year -- brought Menton its initial prosperity, but now High summer is now the season to visit. Thanks to a beneficial subtropical microclimate (316 cloudless days a year), winter is practically unknown in Menton. Therefore, you can enjoy a beautiful sea and the nearby sunny mountains all year round.
Menton has excellent daily markets selling beautiful fresh fruit, fish, vegetables, salads and home made produce. The whole area has excellent markets and the weekly market in Vintimille all day Friday is a must – the cheapest prices for clothes, handbags and shoes and a whole lot more!
From here you can go on trips to the villages in the Menton back country; the free route allows visitors to a completely independent discovery of the region with even the choice of combining the coastal route with the meandering corniche or mountain routes, especially those perched villages...
- Roquebrune : its castle fort and hundred year old olive trees.
- Gorbio : its natural and architectural heritage.
- Sainte-Agnès : the highest coastal village in Europe with its view and fort of the Maginot Line.
- Castellar : its fountains, its chapels and its turret houses
- Castillon : its pleasures of life and creative artisans.
Le Parc du Mercantour (La Vallée des Merveilles - The Valley of Wonders) :
- Beautiful natural area with 70,000 hectares, inhabited by chamois, ibex, moufflons, marmots, partridges and white hares, it contains flora rich in colours and rare species and rock carvings...
But also the possibility of discovering the Baroque, explore great tourist spots such as :
- The Principality of Monaco : The Royal Palace, the exotic garden and the oceanographic museum.
- Comté de Nice : the old Nice and the promenade des Anglais (Nice Promenade)
- The Pays de Grasse : Favourite land for flowers and scents
but also a land of art with Saint-Paul de Vence or the Festivals with Cannes.
There are also many exquisite gardens in Menton you can visit. The Val Rahmeh Botanical Garden was created in 1905 by Lord Radcliffe, ex-governor of Malte. La Serre de la Madone was designed between 1919 and 1939 by major Lawrence Johnston, in english style. Today, it contains a collection of rare essence brought back from Asia. The Villa Maria Serena which belonged to the De Lesseps family and was constructed in 1880 has a beautiful garden too. The Hanbury Botanic Gardens, just across the Italian border in La Mortola, were established in 1867 by Sir Thomas Hanbury, a rich Englishman, who filled them with exotic plants from all over the world.
