We had a fantastic holiday at this property and Menton is a hidden gem with great transport links to other areas along the coast, Nice, Monaco, Eze etc. The house provided us with everything we needed and was very spacious. The pool area, terrace and surrounding gardens were beautiful and all very well looked after. Mr Lopez was a very nice man who couldn't have been more helpful! He looked after us extremely well and took us to the supermarket on the first day. He also provided us with bare essentials for our arrival late at night which was much appreciated. Simona did a great job at communicating with us prior to our visit and was always helpful and quick to respond. As mentioned in other reviews it is a only a 10 min walk straight to the beach but a very steep walk back up the hill. Getting a taxi in Menton is difficult and even after calling they are unreliable. This meant on several occasions we had long walk back up the hill late at night. Otherwise highly recommended!
I stayed in this beautiful Villa with my extended family consisting of little kids, adults and grandparents and everyone enjoyed the place as well as the area. The location of the Villa is fantastic with a big terrace and a swimming pool, both having an amazing view over the Menton bay. We managed without a car and even enjoyed the walk up and down. However, car would be helpful with kids and necessary with elderly. The Villa is well taken care of and appropriately equipped. There are two lovely cats who mainly stay outside but anyone who is allergic should pack their medication, just in case. Friendly and nice owner as well as helpful staff made not only the stay but also handling all practical things very pleasant. We would definitely go again and highly recommend the place to the others!!

Had a wonderful 8 days at this villa, situated up on the hillside from Menton Town. A car is essential unless everyone is very fit! We were a large family group including grandparents and teenagers - everyone thoroughly enjoyed their holiday - plenty to do in the area, including travelling by train to Nice (shopping, flower market) or Italy (market by the sea and a delicious lunch). Beaches are stony but right round the bay past the old town there is a section with sunbeds and some sand and easier access to the water for the elderly. Bikes can be hired in town and all our boys took a trip up the mountain on bikes which was extremely hard work but worth it for the views! We took the grandparents up in the car. House is generally well appointed, the caretaker is extremely friendly and helpful. The only thing to be aware of is there are lots of steps and no walk in shower which made it slightly more challenging for one of our party.The pool is very cold but the sea was the perfect termperature!
The previous posters have been very complementary about the property which, in most aspects, we would agree with however it is also worth pointing out a few negatives to give a balance.
Whilst the property has a lovely view renters should be warned that it is up a very steep drive. Anyone who is elderly, infirm our pushing a baby buggy will really struggle coming in and out.
The property is advertised as being air conditioned however this consisted of only two portable units which needed the windows to be open in order to be used thereby rendering their performance very poor and presenting a security risk if used at night.
Wardrobe space is quite limited in most rooms as the owner obviously stores their own belongings at the property.
On a minor point there was no kettle provided however the very friendly gardener Mr Lopez saved the day by lending us his.
Pictures don't do justice to this place. And the pictures are already gorgeous. It is so beautiful. Breath taking views from the garden, pool and terrace. We loved our visit there, everything worked well. Simona and the gardener are both extremely helpful and nice. We were with two teenagers and grandparents. Everybody was happy there and would love to go again.
