Real Estate Menton: Villas and Apartments for Sale
Situated between Monaco and the Italian border, Menton is one of the highlights of the French Riviera. The town is blessed with a subtropical microclimate and warm summers generally give way to mild winters. As such Menton remains popular with tourists throughout the year, while its residents enjoy an average of 316 cloudless days a year. The town has some splendid architecture and those looking to buy property in Menton, will find that it has a wonderful range of apartments and townhouses.
Thanks to its climate Menton is something of a horticultural marvel and the town has won the prize for the best City of Flowers in France on several occasions. Wherever you go in Menton, you will pass through streets lined with palms and mimosa and boulevards lined with citrus trees. Every year, between February and March, the town plays host to the Lemon Festival, highlights of which include the grand floats of the 'Promenade du Soleil' and the building of giant citrus decorations in the Jardin Biovès.
The town is home to some wonderful parks and gardens, including the Jardin Serre de la Madone and the Jardin Botanique Exotique de Menton, as well as some wonderful architecture. The centre of the city comprises the medieval Old Town, a meandering network of stone paved streets that includes the magnificent Basilique Saint Michel, which stands as a wonderful example of baroque architecture. The Old Town is a wonderful place to explore on foot and offers a range of small gardens, shady squares and some wonderful cafés and restaurants.
Menton's seafront is equally attractive and includes two marinas, the Old Port and a number of fine sandy beaches. These include a number of public beaches, of which the Plage de Sablettes is the most popular and accessible, and a dozen or so private beaches where you can enjoy waiter service from the comfort of your own deck chair. Once you've relaxed on the beach you may have the energy for a little cultural distraction and the Jean Cocteau Museum, situated to the southwest of the Old Port, is just a short walk away.
