A charming apartment on several levels in a 16th century aristocratic building including: kitchen, bathroom and living room downstairs; bedroom and bathroom upstairs. The living room enjoys a view over Menton's old port and Sablettes beach.
The apartment is located in one of the oldest buildings of the city, next to the famous staircase leading from Quai Bonaparte to Saint Michel's Cathedral.
The building surface is 70 square meters and it has been recently renovated, keeping its original appearance.
The priest of the nearby cathedral may have dwelt in it in the past, as it is proved by the engraving with religious motifs, dated 1533, on the jamb of the front door.
Street level: entrance with a coat hook and some room for beach items.
Downstairs: kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, bathroom and living room.
Upstairs: bedroom with one double bed and two single beds, all with futon mattress, and a small bathroom.
Note: The floors can be accessed throughout an old-fashioned, and therefore narrow, slate staircase.
The living room overlooks Sablettes beach and the old port, and beyond the French-Italian border, the view reaches up to Balzi Rossi rocks, with their prehistoric caves.
The kitchen, in masonry with a stone sink, is equipped with electric hotplates, refrigerator, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. It is furnished with old furniture and overlooks the staircase leading to the cathedral through a basement window. A small bathroom with shower (without window) and a closet is located next to the kitchen.
The upstairs level houses the bedroom, converted from what once was a local warehouse, and a small bathroom. The main feature of this area is a vaulted ceiling whose top height is 170 cm in the bedroom and 160 cm in the bathroom.
However, the highest spot is just over the double bed with an approximately 190 cm height.
The bedroom has two windows facing the inner street and the bathroom has got a basement window overlooking the staircase.
