We just returned after staying a week with Beatrice at La Petite Maison and thoroughly enjoyed it. The apartment is excellent for 2 people, very clean, lovely little courtyard and garden to relax in to read and have breakfast. Whilst there is no air conditioning the large fans supplied are ideal for keeping you cool. The only thing we felt would have been beneficial for guests would be the addition of a small fridge in the rooms however Beatrice very kindly offered to keep our drinks in her own fridge. Beatrice is a wonderful hostess, lots of tips on where to visit and her suggestions for restaurants were great. Menton is a lovely old town with pretty painted houses and a beautiful church tower. The old graveyard is fascinating to visit.
What we loved most about here was the mix of nationalities and it appears less likely to attract the cruise ship day trippers that descend on the other towns on the riviera. For us this was a real positive.
Two restaurants stood out for us as excellent, the Cote Sud, which was italian and the owner and her staff were fabulous and also the bistro Brazza which had excellent food at reasonable prices. We also enjoyed the vinotecca,the owner is really passionate and knowledgeable about the wines she serves and the nibbles are great.More
