Nice Apartment, Good Location
This is closer to the centre than we thought, being only 5 minutes or so to the main tourist shops and restaurants in the old town. There's a Carrefour just across the street which is open from 7am to 10pm and even on Sundays for shorter hours, so stocking up on your breakfast baguette etc couldn't be simpler.
The apartment is well furnished, although there was only a couch and one small chair in the living room, which would be a bit of a squash if four of you spent much time indoors, but who comes to Menton to do that? There's a good-sized widescreen TV which has French cable and also UK Freesat, which is handy, and the wifi is very useful, even if you only bring an iTouch.
The kitchen has a large fridge/freezer, oven, hob and washing machine, with only a microwave and dishwasher lacking, although again that's not that important.
The airconditioning in the living room and bedroom is very useful and makes all the difference in hot weather, and there are also 3 sets of small beach chairs and mattresses.
The balcony is good for having your breakfast or a drink whilst watching the world go by and gets the sun around 6pm in summer.
We spent a few days on a private beach in Garavan bay, which was only about a 15 minute walk away, with a Marche-U nearby if you don't want to pay the high food and drink costs on the beach. The view of the old town from the water or even pier in that area is wonderful and so much better than the beach near the apartment.
We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment and having previously stayed in a quaint but smaller and balcony-less apartment in the old town would definitely recommend this one in preference.
