The view is magnificent.
Very difficult with no air conditioning especially when you need to sleep. Would never consider this property during hot summer months. Also, feel they need to do some refurbishing. It was not bad, but broken tiles here and there should be replaced. Ceilings are starting to peel in some areas, wood floor in kitchen-dining area needs to be refinished. Looks like they did refinish half the room, but did not finish the rest of it. The caretaker lives on the bottom floor, and stopped by several times to see if we needed anything. I would have preferred more privacy.
Menton is charming and then there is the beautiful Monaco nearby, and of course, Italy is a half mile away.
