"Wow !! What an amazing apartment!! Located centrally in Menton in walking distance of shops, restaurants, the local fresh market and who could forget the patisseries!! Oh ... and only a stone throw from Monaco!! Jean Francois was a great host , very responsive and knowledgeable both on the area and the amazing history of the apartment. He provided us with private parking also which was a god sent for us traveling with 4 kids and a minivan!! Jean Francois’s apartment suited our family of 7 down to the ground and it was so great to have been able to have our children immersed in history and culture for a few days by actually staying in a historical building. It was super clean and had all the comforts of home. Thanks again, Adrian - Perth Australia"
The apartment certainly has the wow factor with remarkable murals in the bedrooms.
It is spacious but comfortable and warm. Being met at the railway station by the charming Natallia was a huge help.
Menton is a most attractive town with lots of places of interest. Unfortunately, while we were there, there was disruption on the railway and with some of the bus services and some of the gardens, which were advertised as open in December, were not.
We have just returned from a week staying here in Menton
The apartment: A lovely apartment in a former hotel, the upper rooms give you a close up view of the old, wonderfully OTT ceiling. The rooms were spacious, each with an en suite bathroom and the kitchen was more than sufficient for the 5 of us to take turns cooking.
The owners: Jeff and Natallia were both incredibly helpful, both in terms of suggestions to make our travel from the airport easier, and useful tips on places to eat and beaches to go to. They also told us about firework displays that happened to be on during the week, the market over in Ventimiglia, and the nearest fishmongers.
We all had a wonderful time!
More then enough space for us two families and the apartment had everything you ever need.
Communication worked well and I truly recommend the hosts, Jeff and his wife was lovely and shared a lot of good information about Menton and they offered us a baby bed for our youngest. Thank you for a great week!
Jeff's place is excellent! We loved the historical background of the entire building and location and the modern conveniences of Jean's apartment! The place is very clean and cozy! The modern amenities and appliances made our stay very comfortable. Jeff and Natallia were also very helpful in giving us information on transport and places to see and eat! We had a truly memorable stay and will go back to his place on the next opportunity that we have!
Just returned from a ten day holiday staying in this spacious and cool apartment. Exceptionally clean. The bedrooms are extremely large and all ensuite. Two have air conditioning. Fans in all other rooms. The showers are great, especially after a day on the beach (which is a 5 minute stroll). We even came back for lunch and returned to the beach. Kitchen has everything and a very large fridge freezer. Couldn't fault the place. Train and bus stations within a short stroll. We used these to travel to Italy, along the coast and into mountains. Small daily market two minutes away for fresh fruit and veg. Seriously recommend this place. Jeff is a very friendly and helpful host. We are a family of four with teenagers 17 and 15 who need their space and this place never let us down. When we return to Menton we will be using Jeff's place again
