Self Catering Menton Holiday Homes, Villas and Gites 

Menton is a stunning town in the Alpes-Maritimes department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France. Situated on the Cote D’Azur, along the Franco-Italian border, it is nicknamed la perle de la France ("The Pearl of France"). It’s just across from the Italian town of Ventimiglia. When you visit Menton you’ll enjoy the warm micro-climate favorable to lemon, tangerine, and orange groves.

When you rent a holiday home in Menton be sure to visit its gardens, for it is famous for them, including the Jardin Serre de la Madone, the Jardin botanique exotique de Menton ("Le Val Rahmeh"), the Fontana Rosa, and the Maria Serena garden. Le Val Rahmeh was established in 1905 by Englishman Sir Percy Radcliffe, the first owner of the gardens, and named for his wife. Villa Fontana Rosa was built in 1922 by Blasco Ibáñez, a Spanish novelist, and the gardens of the villa are now open to the public.

Other sites to see when you stay in self catering accommodation in Menton include: The baroque basilica of Saint-Michel-Archange, with its bell-tower, was built in 1619 by the Genoese architect Lorenzo Lavagna.  The Musée Jean Cocteau is located in the Bastion of the port of Menton.

For beach lovers a stay in a Menton Holiday Villa means the opportunity to enjoy its half a dozen beaches! A Lemon Festival takes place every February. The festival follows a theme each year; past themes include Viva España, Disney, Neverland, and India. The festival lasts a few days, with different bands passing through Menton's streets on foot or on truck trailers. The Casino Gardens in the centre of town are decorated in the theme of the festival, using lemons to cover the exhibits, and huge temporary statues are built and covered with citrus fruit. The Menton Classical Musical Festival is also held every year in the centre of the old town.
