Rated Exceptional 5/5
Superb rental property
Our stay was extremely pleasant. The location of the property is very convenient. It is in the midst of nature and a very beautiful garden and yet all the conveniences required for daily living are a very convenient walking distance.
The property itself is spacious and well furnished. All the bedrooms have their own bathrooms. The kitchen is extremely well furnished and has all the kitchen utilities in abundance. The living room and the dining room are spacious and well furnished.
There are two balconies where one can leisurely sit and enjoy the view of the sea and the setting sun. All in all the owners have taken every possible care to make the stay of the guests very pleasant.
Beautiful villa, stunning views, gorgeous garden
Nestled in lush botanical surrounds, this villa is a romantic and historically-fascinating base, from which to explore the French Riviera. The views are stunning and cocktails under the framed balcony arches were evocative of Scott Fitzgerald's Tender is the night, which put the Riviera on the tourist map, way back in the 20s.
The interior is beautifully presented and there was plenty of room for us three couples. There's lots of lovely walks around Menton and across the Italian border, plus the nearby train makes for easy access all along the Coast.
Ed was a very pleasant and most helpful host. If you want to get away from some of the crass architecture of the Riviera coastline and pretend that none of the development ever happened, this is the hidden gem for you!
Dream vista of a golden era
The first feeling, once inside, is disbelief. Its size and space, bedrooms each with bathroom and drop dead views of the Med, or from my room, Alpes Maritimes and Cap Ferrat. Living room, kitchen and dining all tastefully decorated and furnished.
We ate our way around the Cote d'azur, but our most enjoyable times were cocktails on the balcony and the sun setting into the Med then dining in house with fresh produce from the local Menton market. There is so much to say about this rental, it has an amazing garden, it is sparkling clean and beautifully furnished. It also has a documented history.....
Its location is ideal for daytrips to either French or Italian Riviera, by car or train, we did both. There are amazing restaurants in walking distance and the stylish town of Menton is not far away.
Ed is a great host, never short of a suggestion and he steered our party in the right direction every time. He has a beautiful house, which I am reluctant to share as I would like to visit every year...
Wonderful apartment in villa with a fantastic view and a unique garden
The beautiful sea-view, the sunny location and the unique, magical garden makes the villa and this top floor apartment something very, very special.
Last but not least, we very much appreciated the owner's active and hospitable approach in all our questions. Thank you for that. We hope to come back one day.
Beautiful house situated just high enough to enjoy the truly spectacular views over the harbour.
Edward Delaney's Menton home is top notch in every way. All the furnishings and appliances are high end yet the decor is in keeping with the period of the property. The private garden with dip pool, kitchen and dining area are excellent.
The resident owners on the ground floor are so friendly and make you feel at home. Their extensive gardens are very pretty and William (owner) is happy to have you discover them (we of course spoke with him first to check he was happy for us to roam!)
Couldn't get better...
