Beautiful Apartment At Seafront With Rooftop Swimming Pool

Little gem!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for us. We are a family of six and there was enough room for us all. The small, enclosed garden was a real boon, increasing the available space and giving a lovely, shady place for our youngest to play safely. We got great use out of the rooftop pool, which does have wonderful views. The apartment is also directly across the road from the beach and the supermarket. We did have a rental car and were very happy that underground parking was available, although it was a tight squeeze for the 7 seater. We have holidayed in various French regions and have always needed and extensively used a rental car, however, one definitely does not need a car in Menton. The train and bus services are excellent - frequent and great value for money... and also hassle-free, given the tiny roads and horrendous roadworks in Monaco!!! We did drive over the Italian border into Ventimiglia - disaster! - no parking to be had. The train would have been so much easier... the Menton-Garavan station is only a short walk from the apartment,as is the border itself. We had a little difficulty working out how the TV worked ( I wasn't particularly motivated to find out either - a week with no TV is a plus in my book, feelings not shared by my children unfortunately). I have nothing negative to say about the apartment or the location and would have no hesitation in returning and recommending it to others.

Menton apartment

  • 5 of 5

What a gem.Everything you want from an apartment.

Clean, spacious ,well equipped, ideal location, superb views from the roof top pool.

HAs a dishwasher ,washing machine,hob,combi grill microwave, toaster , nespresso coofee machine , big smart tv, DVD player.

Outside space was excellent, large dining table an enough chairs for sitting.THere is enough shade at all times during the day,but enough save to lie in the sun. I did notice that ther was a box of beach toys and a couple old boogie boards for use, this would be ideal for small children.

The garden is really safe and enclosed , again ideal for those with small chlidren.

All the communal areas are really clean and well maintained, the roof top pool is a huge bonus ,as the public beach can get busy at weekend.A note for those with small children the stairs from the lift to the roof top pool is spiral like so be careful with children.THe views from there are amazing, you can actually see the Italian border.

Despite having a main road to the front of the property, and a railway line to the rear the apartment is really very quiet and secluded, we did hear trains go by , but they are electric trains and much quieter than tha clacty clack trains we hear.we were not troubled by any road noise.

Location is ideal ,right across from the beach, near to the local supermarket which was ideally stocked with everything you would need.THere are numerous restaurants accords at the beach , we only used on once, perfectly acceptable.you are about a ten minute stroll to the main restaurant area, with a very wide choice of cuisines, prices much of a muchness.we did walk along to the ITalian border, about a Kilometer away, if you keep to the path follow it round you come to a very nice wee beach bar, we just had drinks there , but the food did look good.

On Fridays in ventimiglia there is a huge market selling everything, we did purchase a few items, the train station is a 10minute walk away, so we just got the train along, 15 euros return for the three adults,

We got the train from NIce airport and back 21 euros for three adults each way, very reasonable.

The security of the apartment is excellent as you need a key fob to open all the doors in the communal area, and to exit the building, again good security if you have small children.

All in all I would highly recommend this apartment, and if returning to Menton I would definitely use again. Nice touch the owner left a bottle of rose for us upon arrival

Great property, great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was a perfect choice for us. It is the perfect size for a family with kids, and the garden and the upstairs pool gave our kids the opportunity to have areas where they could "Escape the parents" and we could relax knowing they were in a secured area. It was clean, roomy, lots of light and enjoyable. Everything is a quick walk, the sea, the supermarket, the old town and restaurants. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. Always a quick response to emails.

It was our first time in Menton, and we really loved the area, you are in the cote d' azur but don't feel like your in a holiday resort. Everybody is very friendly and the town is very well connect with transport.

All in all a great property and a great location, we highly recommend this property and Menton.

We will be back,

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay in the apartment and in Menton. The property was well equipped, clean and had all the amenities me were looking for.

The apartment is on the side of the building and not on the sea front, which was perfect for us, as my wife is sensitive to traffic and the main road is very busy, the apartment was very quite and the garden was a great place to have breakfast. We also enjoyed the pool on the roof of the building, it really has the most amazing views of the Menton and the sea.

We didn't eat much in the apartment as there are so many restaurants to choose from in the area, we recommend Côte Sud in the Old Village.

We would like to thank Maria for waiting for us as we had a delayed flight from the UK and she waited till 10 pm truly appreciated.

We recommend the apartment and hope to come back soon.

Briggy family

Close to Everything!

  • 3 of 5

Located right across from the beach. Ground level, in the back, with a nice patio that we used a couple of times.

Unfortunately, the train tracks are only 30 metres behind, and the trains start running about 5:30 am.

We were welcomed and given a tour/review by the cleaner. Succinct and in French only. It was enough tho.

The master BR was just large enough, with an adequate closet. The 2nd BR was very tight; bunk beds and a shelves-only closet.

The kitchen is along one wall and was fine for our needs. We had coffee and toast in the mornings, but ate out for lunches and dinners. A cooktop and microwave; no oven.

The toilet is in a separate, cramped room; no bidet and no tp roller.

The whole place would benefit from a fresh coat of paint.

Rooftop pool was ok but the weather did not cooperate so we only went up once. Fixed benches and no loungers or chairs.

No issues getting in or out. The exterior and common areas were clean and well maintained.

The owner was helpful and responded quickly to e-mail and telephone.

For context, we are a mid 60's Canadian couple travelling on our own, and without a car.

Owner's Response: Dear Darcy, thank you very much for your review, we truly appreciate sharing your experience and for giving us tips to constantly improve our property. Roca Mare is truly located in the best area to enjoy Menton, just 50 meters from the sea, 50 meters from great restaurants, 200 meters from the Old Village. We are pleased you went to the pool and solarium where you have the most amazing views of Italy, Menton Old Town, the sea and the Mountains. The master bedroom has a European queen bed 160cm, which for European standards is already big, but we understand that in Canada you have much larger beds. The second bedroom has ordinary bunk beds which are 90cm by 190 cm also very standard size for Europe. As I had explained to you, the microwave is also an oven and our guests have been generally happy with the meals is produced. In France it very common to separate the toilette from the bathroom, this is a practical reason which I ma sure I don't have to explain why. We are very surprised about your comments regarding the train, we have always had comments from our guests appreciating the quietness of the apartment as people tend to book the apartment to avoid the noise seafront roads that are always very trafficked and busy. The railway is actually positioned at 80 meters, behind the main building and it is behind a containment wall. We have lived in the apartment ourselves with our two babies and never heard or noticed the train. Finally we have already acted on your comments with regards to freshening the property and we have renewed the furniture. It was a pleasure to have you as a guest and hope to see you soon again in our little part of the world. Sophia and Neil

Generally well maintained property, well positioned and good welcome.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was very good and the garden is a real bonus giving great space for relaxation and eating meals out. The roof top swimming pool is again a real asset. The owners are very open, flexible and welcoming as is the reception on the day. There is a great deal of privacy as you are away from the main street. The surrounding amenities (supermarket, restaurants, beaches and patisserie) are additional good points. We will certainly want to return in the not too distant future and are happy to recommend it.
