Hotels in Menton
Located on the French Riviera, six miles along the coast from Monaco, Menton is a pretty Mediterranean resort town that basks in its Mediterranean status and is famous for its lemons and exceptional gardens. Book one of the charming Menton hotels through lastminute.com and discover why Jean Cocteau described it as the "Pearl of France."
Jean Cocteau fell in love with Menton after his first visit in 1955, and three years later he was declared an honorary citizen of the town. The Jean Cocteau Museum features nearly 1,000 pieces of art by the artist. The works are split into seven themed sections ranging from Cocteau's nascent avant-garde pencil, pastel and watercolour pieces to his work as a filmmaker.
Gardens and Parks
It's not surprising that a coastal town blessed with a very mild climate and more than 300 days of sunshine a year became a haven for botanists. And Menton's many and varied gardens are the result of this temperate weather. One of the prizes of the Val Rahmeh Botanical Garden is Sophora toromiro, a species of small flowering trees that was native to Easter Island but is no longer found there. Jardin de la Villa Maria Serena is known for its lemon, olive and palm trees which cluster around a pristine white 19th-century Villa.
The Côte d'Azur
Menton is blessed with a long, wide beach stretching over four miles from Port Garavan to Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. A mixture of pebbles and sand, the coastline is gently lapped by the azure blue Mediterranean waves.
Eating and drinking
Naturally, Menton's cuisine is predominantly French but there is a strong Mediterranean and, particularly, Italian influence. You'll find a huge choice of restaurants, bistros and tearooms and the quality is high because the denizens of Menton vote with their feet when it comes to poor service or food.
Shopping in and around Menton
A covered market at Les Halles opens every morning, selling all kinds of tempting treats including fresh bread, homemade jams and wine. There are many other markets - not all open daily but you'll find at least one of them trading on any given day. Keep an eye open for farms selling local produce, often for great value. Menton was once famous for its cultivation of lemons and you'll find orchards devoted to the growing of this citrus delight, notably in the in the Annonciade Hills
