With the warm waves of the Mediterranean lapping its shores and located on the Franco-Italian border where the Alpine chain meets the sea, Menton offers something to indulge all tastes. Indeed, as five-time winner of France's Best City of Flowers award, many of which are evidence of the region's sub-tropical climate, we think the 'Pearl of France' is the perfect base from which to explore not just the familiar sights of the French Riviera, but many of its hidden treasures too.
Using a range of local transport your experienced local guide will lead you on a week of wonderfully varied walks, taking you along picturesque coastal trails, lined with orange trees and vibrantly colored mimosa. Then it's on through beautiful medieval mountain villages with magnificent views overlooking the Riviera including Eze and Castellar. On a clear day you may even spot Corsica!
Take time to discover the delights of Menton, from its beautiful gardens to the beaches and port to the old town. You'll also head to the affluent principality of Monaco to indulge in its renowned glamour and luxury.Throughout the week, you'll be staying at the Hotel Mediterranee. This charming hotel, with its well-appointed rooms, is just a three minute walk to the sea and located in the heart of Menton. Given the wide choice of restaurants in the town we have left your evenings free.
