The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
This modern top floor apartment with 1 bedroom, living room, logia (covered balcony), kitchen and bathroom is located in a superb private residence with shared pool and boasts views of Monaco, the hills and sea.
Situated between Monaco and Menton on the French Riviera, Roquebrune is a small village with a quite brilliant small supermarket, local shops (inc pharmacy) and a lovely park.
The old village of Roquebrune and its castle lie in the hills above, further to the east are the high hill villages of Gorbio and St Agnes. The Italian border is 5 minutes by car east and leads to Ventimillia (do not miss the Friday Market) and onwards to the resort of San Remo. To the west by car, Monaco is 5 minutes, Nice is 25 minutes and Cannes is 1 hour away.
2 mins drive or 10-15 mins walk (down steps) to Roquebrune beach on the Menton side of Cap Martin or 3 mins drive or 20 mins to Roquebrune Cabbe (Monaco side of Cap Martin) which is a stony beach. The beach at the Lavorotto in Monaco is similar but has no stones and some classy eateries on the beach.
The bus is an easy way to get about to the beaches and towns they are clean, airconditioned, efficient and inexpensive.
The nearest golf course is The Golf Club Monaco. This is a 20 minute drive from the apartment up to La Turbie, above Monaco.
For the enthusiast who enjoys a drive and skiing this apartment allows a great day out in the Maritime Alp ski resorts or the italian resort of Limone. The drive up to the French resorts of Auron and Isola 2000 takes 1.5 to 2 hrs. Its a great day out in March to leave early, ski till 3 or 4 drive back to the warmth of Monaco for dinner by the sea. The Italian resort of Limone which hosted a world championship slalom in 2010 is slightly closer at 1 - 1.5 hrs drive.
Nice, the nearest airport is approx 25 minutes by car on the A8 motorway. The bus service is quite inexpensive and takes around 1 hr 15 minutes, however a car is recommended for your stay. By foot the train station (Carnoles) is 15/20 minutes away. There are 2 bus stops near the residence. The one 5 mins from the residence (Riva Bella) has a 10-15 minute service to Monaco or Menton. The one 2 mins from the residence, Roquebrune Marie) is less frequent.
Monaco is 5 minutes by car, Menton is also 5 minutes by car. Nice is 25 minutes on the highway and Cannes 1 hour. All traffic dependant of course!
Shore fishing is available all round the cape of Cap Martin at the bottom of the residence grounds or in Menton off the arms built into the sea. Boat fishing is available from Menton and Monaco.
We've not tried the parapenting on the hills above but looks like good fun for the brave. Suggest you make your own enquiries.
The Southern Ski resorts of Isola 2000 and Auron are one and a half to 2 hours away by car. It is possible to hire a helicopter from Monaco Which takes about 15 minutes. Ski hire is easy and with an early start (say 7.00) you can be on the slopes by 10.00. Ski till 4 or 5 and be back to dine by the sea in the evening. The resorts are also open in summer for hill walking.
Events in the area - Monaco Grand Prix (May) and the Monaco Historic Grand Prix (every 2 years on the even year the week prior to the FIA Grand Prix). Monte Carlo Rally, Historic Rally Monte Carlo - Monaco Tennis Masters - World Music Awards - Lemon Festival in Menton - Cannes Film Festival - Halloween at Stars and Bars (Monaco) is great for adults and kids (pre book tickets). Pick up a brochure from the kiosk at Monaco Nice Airport for a full event list for the month or go to the Tourist Info Centre on Ave Boyer in Menton.
