Find Hotel in Menton –
It was 1960 when I visited Menton with my parents, our first holiday to the cote d’azur, we stayed in a beautiful house which we rented on Boulevard de Garavan. I was 7 years old and ever since Menton was carved in my memory, Menton was magic and I knew it wasn’t the last time to go there. The image shows the house were we spend those incredible 3 weeks >>
Every day we went to the beach, which we could see from the house, we took the path down and in about 10 miutes we reached the beach. Also we went several times to Ventimiglia, just across the border in Italy, every friday, still today, there is a huge market with lots of fruit and vegetables, but also clothes etc. for very reasonable prices.
In 1981 I went back to Menton to work for a Yacht broker in Port de Garavan. I was into boating and was responsable for the maintenance of about 10 yachts. I stayed 3 years, a wonderful period of my live, I was 30 years old. Only just recently, in the first week of May 2017 I visited Menton again with my wife and we both felt like moving there in a few years to retire.
