About Jill Howard

I first visited Menton in 1980 for a summer French language course and repeated that wonderful experience for many years, also taking my two sons with me for a month. When I retired from teaching I dcidd I should buy a small property there to continue our experience, I have since enjoyed many wonderful times at Menton always accompanied with friends. Lots to do for both children and adults.

Jill Howard purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Jill Howard chose Menton

It is an old property in the heart of the historic area, a pedestrian only road so quiet and it overlooks the roof tops to the sea. Behind it looks up to the old cemetery to orange and lemon groves. My bought this property after spending many years in Menton on a summer language course. There is so much to do in the area both summer and winter. Lots of museums and art galleries, gardens, wonderful hill top villages to explore and marvellous walks both along the coast and inland. The transport is frequent going right along the coast and into Italy where the culture is so different.

What makes this apartment unique

I enjoy the quiet of the location and the fact that each morning presents a different sky and look of the sea. It is just 5 minutes to the centre of town and equal distance to the beach. One could never believe you are in the heart of Menton.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I stayed in this apartment for a week in June. The views over the roof tops are superb, the sea and clouds changing everyday. There is everything possible we should need. The apartment is airy being on the top floor so light breezes from the sea passing through. The location is superb, no traffic and just a few minutes from the beach and the centre of town. We shall definitely return. Thanks.

Stylish Provence Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well equipped, large, comfortable apartment in the most interesting part of Menton. The views are amazing, from the dining table and the sofa you can look out across the roof tops to the sea. The apartment includes beach items, an interesting book case and a kitchen with everything you need, so it's possible to make the most of the local market. We've already booked for next year.

winter break

  • 5 of 5

We gratefully passed the winter months of 2015 - 16 in this sunny studio at Menton. The studio is of generous proportions and it's great advantage is that, although not directly on the coast, it has a wonderful sea view to one aspect and a view onto orange and lemon trees on the other. The apartment is well situated in a quiet corner of Menton's picturesque old town, close to the shopping centre and a variety of restaurants. We were very comfortable throughout our stay and found that the apartment was a good base from which to explore the region, including the surrounding hill villages some of which are within walking distance. It has been a wonderful few months and we hope to visit again!

Comfortable French studio.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovey, quaint studio/apartment for the week and had a wonderful holiday. The studio/apartment was spacious and well positioned in the old part of Menton, only a few minutes away from the beach. It was well equipped with all we needed for our stay. I would recommend anyone wanting to stay in Menton and not willing to pay the earth in rental to stay here. Well worth the price in this most beautiful town. Will be back as soon as we are able to. Jill, thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

We stayed there for one week recently. We were greeted at the apartment and shown the layout. The location is perfect, being on a pedestrian only street and just a few minutes from the town and shops. My husband enjoyed sitting in the chair by the open window watching the changing sky and sea as well as being able to look up to the lemon and orange groves to the old cemetery. A light, clean and airy apartment. Looking to book for next year. Diane and Reg
