I recently had a nice get away in Menton/ Cote D’azur whilst the rest of England was rainy & grey. What I love about the South of France is culture & the amazing views.
I chose to go Menton as it’s a small town with beautiful mountain views from my Hotel Vacances Bleus Royal Westminster & the sea shore.
Menton is a somewhat of a distance from Nice Airport, however you can get a taxi which will cost at least €90. The best alternative is the train as it’s a lot cheaper & quick of course.
From Nice airport you can catch a shuttle which is free of charge to Terminal 2. I took a train to Menton from St Augustine. The train journey was at least 40 minutes and I paid €8 (bargain compared to the taxi fare).
Commuting is not at all bad and I would totally recommend the train so you can familiarise yourself with the locations, appreciate the culture … and parle en Francais un petit.
Overall I’m a huge lover of Menton, I felt safe, the food was great and I’d do it over again.
