About the property


Old Menton villa with sea view, close to town and beach. Recently renovated and decorated, both floors have been furnished to be a home and not a sterile holiday flat. Both properties include washing machine, free Wifi, TV/DVD, terrace and amenities to make your stay more comfortable. If we were to describe the house in one sentence it would be "a house with a view", as this was the first thing we fell in love with when we first saw the place! The next thing is the good atmosphere that the house brings to its visitors. We have been renting the house for a couple of years now and visitors have felt at home and enjoyed the atmosphere.

About Edward Hirst

We are a married Anglo-Norwegian couple with two children. We both live and work in Norway and bought the property in Menton to escape from the Scandinavian winters. Marion is a lawyer who lectures at the local college and Ed is a manager in a Norwegian IT company. We have experience in renting property abroad and wanted the place to be one that we would like to rent ourselves. The property has been equipped as a home, rather than just a functional place to stay when on holiday.

Edward Hirst purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Edward Hirst chose Menton

We had visited Menton on several occasions and decided to look for a place to buy. Menton is a beautiful, vibrant yet peaceful town, which offers a warm climate, a family-friendly beach, good restaurants and proximity to Italy.

Menton has many of the benefits of a town on the Riviera but without being too touristy and too expensive. Menton is famous for its lemons, and hosts a famous lemon-festival in February/march each year. The town is easy to reach by train, car and plane.The nearest airport is Nice, only 30 min. on the train. There is also a regular bus service directly from the airport to Menton. Other towns along the coast can be reached by the local train that runs regularly along the coast. The nearest Italian town is a 10 minute train ride although the border is only 2km away.

What makes this apartment unique

The villa is situated in a calm and peaceful part of Menton. It sits on the hillside which gives it a magnificent view of the sea. We bought the first floor of the property in 2011 and took over the ground floor in December 2013. We had the first completely renovated in 2011 to bring it up to modern standards. The ground floor is being redecorated in Feburary 2014 and will be furnished with new furniture before it is ready for rent in Spring. The house has the attraction of being close to the shops, restaurants and beach, yet it enjoys the quietness of a residential area. Visitors can rent either the ground floor, first floor or both giving accommodation for a maximum of 14 people. The house is spacious, modern, well-furnished and has been equipped as our own home from home.

Ich hatte die Wohnung im Februar 2015 für drei Wochen gemietet, um in der Umgebung von Menton zu wandern. Bei der Ankunft - viel zu warm angezogen, für deutschen Winter eben - hatten mich die 72 Stufen von der Straße bis zur Wohnung geschockt, aber später ohne Koffer, ohne Rucksack und luftig gekleidet, hab ich die Treppen auch nach einer Wanderung wie eine Gemse genommen. Wer sich aber nicht gerne bewegt oder gehandicapt ist .... der sollte Abstand nehmen. Wer mit dem Auto da ist, sollte wissen, dass auf diesen schmalen, sich bergauf windenden Straßen nur im äußersten Glücksfall ein Parkplatz zu finden ist. Oder man läuft eben doch wieder lange bergauf/bergab.

Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und gemütlich eingerichtet, bequeme Sofas zum Ausstrecken nach einem langen Wandertag. Die Küche: Man kann eine ganze Familie bekochen, es ist genug Geschirr da, ein Geschirrspüler auch und die Kühl-Gefrierkombi macht die Verwertung von frischen Markteinkäufen zum Genuss.

Der Ausblick morgens auf den Sonnenaufgang überm Meer, über den Dächern von Menton - das war einfach großartig. Mir hat auch gefallen, dass man aus dem Rummel raus war, aber trotzdem nur 10 min zur Innenstadt und zum Meer und knapp 20 min zum Bahnhof und Busbahnhof hatte, von wo aus man richtig gut die Orte an der Küste und in die romantischen Bergdörfer gelangt. Fahrten mit dem ÖPNV gibt es hier für sehr kleines Geld.

Ich hatte einen wunderbaren Urlaub dank der schönen Unterkunft. Mit der Eigentümerin gab es einen freundlichen Email-Kontakt und alles war gut organisiert.

Ich hatte Ausstattungen und Preise im Internet lange verglichen und finde, ich habe einen echten "Fitsch" gemacht. Ich komme gerne wieder!

Ich war diesmal alleine da, aber die Wohnung ist für zwei Parteien (Einzelne oder Paare) sehr gut geeignet, es gibt zu den zwei französischen Betten noch ein Gäste-Klappbett und ein Kinder-Reisebett.

Ein Bad mit Dusche über Badewanne, zwei Waschbecken und WC,

1 WC (extra)

1 Raum mit Duschkabine und Waschbecken/Spiegel, in dem auch die Waschmaschine, Bügelbrett etc. untergebracht sind.

Ach jaaaaaa ... hätte ich beinahe vergessen: Die Terasse ist groß, schön möbliert und hat einen herrlichen Blick über Menton und aufs Meer. Jetzt im Februar war da Sonne bis ca. 16:00 Uhr.

Wer länger bleibt und selber kocht, sollte mit Köfferchen freitags in die Markthalle nach Ventimiglia fahren und dort sehr frisch, sehr preiswert und sehr lecker einkaufen (etwa halb so teuer wie Frankreich)

Great Apartment with lovely sea views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks at this lovely apartment and thoroughly enjoyed it. The newly refurbished space has everything you need and is a real home-from-home. A highlight is the lovely terrace, which is a great suntrap and offers gorgeous views over Menton and down to the Mediterranean. The view comes at the small price of having to climb first a hill and then 70 steps, but believe us when we say it’s worth the effort. The description of the apartment only lists one bathroom, when in fact there is a bathroom, with toilet, double sinks, bath and shower, plus a separate toilet, and another shower room, so is perfect if there are a few of you staying. Fully equipped and tastefully decorated it’s a great place to relax, and the air conditioning means you’ll always be cool, even during the hottest days of summer. Menton is a lively town with plenty going on and is perfectly placed to explore both the delights of the Riviera and also Italy. We cannot recommend the apartment highly enough, and the owners were really helpful, providing lots of information and answering all of our questions. We’re certain you won't be disappointed.

Jeg har bodd i dette nydelig huset 7 ganger de siste 4 årene og jeg skal tilbake allerede i september i år

Jeg nyter hvert minutt av husets atmosfære. Villa Mireill gir ro i kropp og sjel og er en perle i denne lille byen ved Middelhavet. Mitt paradis..

Anbefales virkelig ❤

The beach is 5-10 minutes walking away. The beach is family friendly and is right on the edge of the town. Shops are just in the town, food and drink can be bought in bars and restaurants on the promenade. The beach is patrolled by life-guards, serviced by a medical team.


The nearest airport to Menton is Nice. Travel to and from the airport can be made by train to Nice Centre, by private car or taxi, or by a direct bus link. Travel around the region, especially the towns of the Cotes d'Azur, can be reached by the regular coastal train service or bus.

Further Details:

Menton is a thriving seaside town on the Cote d'Azur and on the Italian border. It has the advantage of having all the benefits of the region, but without the excesses of some of the more famous towns along the coast. Menton enjoys a micro-climate which encourages the growth of lemons, for which the town is famous and celebrates with its Lemon Festival in February/March.

Menton has many fine restaurants, an ample choice of bars and cafes, has numerous supermarkets, banks and clothes shops which are open all year round. The town has its tourists and its tourist season, but it is not a tourist town. It is open all year round and retains a normal level of activity outside the traditional tourist seasons. It is a peaceful and calm town which is ideal for family holidays, but access to other towns is easy via the coastal train network which stops at all places between Ventimiglia (Italy) and Cannes, and also beyond.
