PR561 Villa Olivier

Menton, Cote D'azur | Sleeps 8

This is a uniquely placed villa rental in Menton with plunge pool, being walking distance between two countries! Villa Olivier is a completely restored, classic early 1900s villa with an enviable position overlooking Menton, close to the border with Italy. It sits in a residential area surrounded by exotic Mediterranean flora and fauna and has superb views of the sea and harbour.

Walking downhill, you can reach the sandy beach and harbour in just five minutes, or the old town in ten: both offer a variety of restaurants and cafes where you can wine and dine and soak up the delightful atmosphere. The Italian border is only 800 yards away, so you may enjoy the option of a stroll into Italy. Ventimiglia, just over the border, has a large, popular market on Fridays.

In the early 1900s many English aristocrats built houses in Menton, attracted by its favourable microclimate, and many of these wonderful villas are now open to the public. The principality of Monaco with its famous casino and Royal Palace is only 10 miles along the coastline.Why not have breakfast in France, overlooking Menton marina, lunch in Italy and dinner in Monaco? And instead of driving you can take the train, an excellent and popular means of transport along this fashionable stretch of the Riviera coast.

Location, location, location ... you can't beat this villa for position, just five minutes walk to the beach, the port and restaurants. With fantastic views to boot. Villa Olivier is situated in a residential sector of Menton, the lemon capital of France where every February 150 tonnes of the fruit are used to decorate the floats for the annual lemon festival. I would definitely recommend a stroll down by the port and a visit to the fortress. Most of all I just love walking around the old town, popping in and out of the little shops and absorbing the atmosphere. If you are a more sporty type you can always try sailing, water skiing or scuba diving ... but whatever you choose, it is quite likely that you will end up in one of my three favourite restaurants: “Le Baia Benjamin”, “Le Mirazur” or “Le Petit Port”.
