Residence Le Prieure
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
- Menton and its surroundings has something of the exotic about it - the blue sea and sky, the vegetation, the lovely climate, the spectacular views of the coast, buildings, mountains down to the sea, the restaurants and so many places to visit: Monaco/Monte-Carlo; perched villages; national park, fishing/ marinas , rocky coves. Warm climate even in winter.
See photos showing the inside of the flat and various surroundings.
See accurate 'to scale' floor plan showing all furniture.
- Flat has 60 sq. m. (645 sq ft) internal space + two balconies. Marble floors. The sitting room is large with a dining table and chairs to seat 6, 2 armchairs and a double sofa bed, patio doors to a balcony. TV&DVD. The bedroom leading to a second balcony shared with the kitchen; lovely mountain views from these rooms. Beds are quite new and comfortable - can be made up as a large double or two singles. We supply all linen, changed weekly, but not beach towels. The concierge keeps the common parts ship shape; the building is well looked after and clean.
Been letting for more than 14 years or so, mainly to older people. Nearly all seem very happy and come year after year. Two visitors books full of nice compliments. (Was on H/L site from March 2009 but stopped for the year 2012 when contemplating a sale)

|Further details outdoors|
Glimpse of sea from front balcony - its only a short distance away say 100m to the water.
Wheel chair users - caution, for although there is a lift and flat access, the lift is small ( 4 person size and square). Check the dimensions on the plan to make sure yours would fit in.
The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Exotic Roquebrune-Cap-Martin is on the coast next to Menton and close to Monaco/Monte-Carlo. It is about 5 Km from the Italian border. The Alpes come right down to the sea at Menton.
The climate is the mildest in France - palm trees flourish here. Close to ski resorts - nearest is about 1 hour by car; Isola 2000 maybe 2 hours. A car is good but one can manage very well with the excellent public transport.
Carnoles railway stop is 200m up the road from the flat. Frequent trains west to Monaco, Nice, Cannes and east to Menton and Italy.
Roquebrune old village is perched on the mountainside, super views of Monte-Carlo across its bay.
Menton itself has plenty to see and is only a short walk, just over one mile. Corbusier's walk around the 'Cap' has to be done; his cabin and up to the village to see his grave - well, maybe? The house where Yeats died is just behind the Marie of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. A visitor told us he was buried here originally.
Monaco and Monte-Carlo are less than 5 miles. You can walk along the coast to Monte-Carlo - it's a lovely walk. Once arrived there are many attractions including the Palace and of course the Grand Prix. And much to see: shops to buy or to just gaze at; gardens to visit; restaurants - see one of our photos in front of the harbour.
Nearby: good walking either along the coast or in the mountains.

"An ideal apartment for comfort, location and local amenities"
We have been going to this lovely apartment for about 8 or 9 years now and are always drawn back each year for another visit ... Or two! We have been at different times of the year - in the colder mo… More
That's kind Andra, and to my mind an accurate description

"Peaceful apartment in an ideal location"
I have stayed in this flat many times and love coming back year after year. The location is perfect; very close to the beach but also away from the tourist hotspots. Local buses and the coastal train … More
Very kind, and accurate. Thank you.
