Menton is a delightful coastal town located right on the Franco-Italian border.

Surrounded by mountains, it is protected from winds and benfits from a superb micro-climate offering 316 days of sunshine a year! Affectionately known as “La Perle de la France” (The pearl of France), Menton is famous for its wonderful botanical gardens boasting some rare tropical species which are able to survive and flourish thanks to the endless sunshine.

Founded by the Count of Ventigmiglia (Italy) and later ruled by thePrinces of Monaco for five centuries, Menton officially became part of France in 1861. The first town of the Alpes- Maritimes to receive the designation of “City of Art and History”, Menton is proud of its unique display of architecture including beautiful baroque chapels, stunning residences from the “Belle Epoque” and a charming historic old town.

Home to an excellent array of shops and Italian boutiques, superb beach front restaurants, a casino and an attractive port & marina, Menton has much to offer to both visitors and residents.

There are many annual events such as the Classical Music Festival in the Old Town and the famous “Fete du Citron” (Festival of the Lemon!) when the much of the town is decorated with these brightly coloured citrus fruits. Add to this the rich cultural heritage, excellent weather and the long wide stretch of beach, Menton is attracting an increasing number of international tourists, most notably from Italy and the UK.
