This is a great location at a great price. The rooftop terrace and garden dining area add to the charm of this place. It is in easy walking distance to the sea front and the town of Menton. The rooms themselves are simply furnished and if you shut all the shutters on the windows you can cut out the outside noise and light. In the hot weather though that could be a problem as there is a lot of street noise in the area and it does get hot with everything shut up! The price is great and it does include a lovely continental breakfast. The owners/managers are very hospitable and are happy to help out with tea/coffee trays for you to take up to your room and even bottles of water. Ask about the walking trip to Monaco, sounds like a great sea front journey, unfortunately we couldn't take it.

It ...
What a fun day we had!
We drove along the coast ~ we went to Nice, Monaco ~ Monte Carlo....
We spent the day in Monte Carlo ~ took a bus tour ($72 for the 4 of us) and paid $45 for parking our car ~ $7 for an ice cream cone for Cade ~ $10 for Philippe's beer ~ very expensive!
We saw the famous Monte Carlo casino, the Palace, The Monte Carlo yacht club, lots of famous hotels and ...
After our escape from the smoky air of northern Thailand, we have returned to our little haven in the south of France. Our timing worked out well as we arrived ...
... like one continuous urban sprawl -
nothing charming about it.So we stuck to the freeway.
Crossing the border was a non event - into a tunnel on the Italian side, out of
the tunnel on the French side with just a small welcome sign. We'll
never get our passports full of stamps at this rate!!
Did I mention that Menton was a "small" place? WRONG!! It too is a
sprawling metropolis. Nothing ar all what ...
