About the property

The Blue Riviera 1-Bd apartment is located in the heart of Menton, France a small, lovely and quiet city on the famous French Riviera, between mountains and the Mediterranean sea, between Monaco (7 miles) and the Italian border (3 miles).

Conveniently located, you are within walking distance to shops & entertainment, the old historic district, the Cocteau Museum and the historic Market where you can purchase fresh fruits & vegetables every morning.

The Blue Riviera apartment is on the 3rd and last floor of a bourgeois building (w/lift) dated from the “Belle Epoque” period. From the balcony, don’t miss the beautiful sunrises and sunsets! Being on the top level of #1652 Promenade du Soleil provides you with unequaled views of the shore, the Promenade and its palm trees.

Walk across the street and dip your feet in the warm and turquoise-blue Mediterranean waters! Holidays start here!

About Catherine & Philippe

My husband and I are both from France. We have both lived in different places (throughout France for Philippe and in the USA for Catherine) before we met. We have decided to settle our family in Menton as Philippe is a mountains lover and I love warm sea water much better! Where else in the world can we bathe in warm turquoise sea water and look at the mountains? Menton is definitely the place!

Why Catherine & Philippe chose Menton

We love the Blue Riviera Apartment because of its location. It is within walking distance to everything, in a small and lovely city full of History, between Monaco and Italy, in a charming building.

It's a gift to wake up in the morning, take a cup of coffee out to the balcony and watch the sun rises on the horizon or enjoy a glass of wine (French, of course!) or homemade lemonade (with Menton's famous lemons) sitting on the balcony, listening to the waves and watching palms trees and the turquoise blue Mediterranean.

Perfect "Home" for visiting the French Riviera

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful apartment in a great location. It was very bright and airy with beautiful ocean views from the front room. It was very clean and well supplied with anything you might need. Altogether it was the perfect place for our ten day visit to Menton. Would definitely come back.

Great location in beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

Light, airy, roomy with great views. Awesome internet speed (92Mbs). Very clean place which was a pleasure to spend a week in. Sea views are double aspect and triple glazing insulates the apartment from road noise. Air conditioning is quiet and efficient and was only needed in noon day sun. Proximity to shops, bars and restaurants makes this the ideal place to stay.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully renovated apatment with a sesational view. Location is absolutely perfect. Our host, Catherine, met us at the station and brought our luggage to the apartment while we spent an hour or so wandering along the beach waiting for it to be ready. Catherine was very helpful and a pleasant aquaintance.

Fantastic Apartment by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying in Menton! The apartment is in a great location, right on the water and within a two minute walk of the market and shopping area. The decor is tasteful and modern, and the apartment had everything we needed for a week long stay (equipped kitchen, towels, etc). Catherine and Philippe were great hosts and helped us with more than we could ever expect. The only negative is a bit of traffic noise at night if you have the windows open, but this is to be expected with such a great location. All in all we wouldn't change a thing and hope to come back sometime... soon hopefully.
