Grimaldi is a small hilltop village (200 metres altitude above sea level) filled with flowers and with a delightful church - and lots of friendly Italians.

Distances (by car): Menton 5 mins, beaches 10 mins, Ventimiglia centre 15 mins, Monte Carlo 25 mins, motorway 15 mins, Nice airport 40 mins. Buses, shops, restaurants close by in Menton or Ventimiglia.

Wonderful area for garden visits, museums, beaches, boating or just looking at the views. Fantastic walks (marked trails) straight out of the front door and into the hills and mountains behind. The famous Vallée des Merveilles is an hour away. Excellent skiing in season: Limone 1 hour by car or train, Valberg, Auron and Isola 2000 under two hours' drive. Exceptional golf club at La Turbie with stunning views - and another at Sanremo. Perfect tranquillity but close to the bright lights and beaches of both France and Italy.

Bus stops on the main road. Parking for two cars opposite the apartment, but car must not be too wide as these old villages have narrow passages: width 200cm (6½ feet) Possible to rent owner's small car.

One week minimum let. Changeover day is Saturday. No more than four adults and except by arrangement. Maximum occupancy four adults and two children under 16. Long lets considered. Three hours' cleaning (compulsory) included in rent, on Wednesday mornings
