What a view!
Fantastic place to stay, great views over towards Monaco where we caught two firework displays! Lots of steps down to village and back, lovely local restaurants. Would love to visit again. Thanks for sharing your apartment with us.
Property was exactly what we wanted. Lovely and clean, all mod cons and great view.
We arrived late and had a bit of trouble locating the place but once in we relaxed straight away. Local bars and restaurants were good quality and little shop kept us going. Locals all v friendly and helpful. Sat on balcony every evening with our drinks. We did the 800 steps to the beach which kept us fit! Got to see E1027 which was main reason for our little jaunt. Would come again.
It's the view
The apartment was clean and well-appointed. The view from the balcony is outstanding. We had happy hour and ate dinner there every evening.
Medieval village and stunning views
Cosy apartment close to the historic centre of the village with its charming alleys and wonderful views. A visit to the medieval castle is a must as is a visit to the excellent restaurant 'The Grand Inquisitor'. Jill's apartment had everything needed for a self catering holiday, was very quiet and has stunning views from the balcony.
Great Riviera base with "old village" charm.
Back for another stay at this well located,clean,modern and secure apartment that offers close proximity to the Riviera lifestyle but with a delightful medieval village atmosphere to savour on return from your daily explorations by car,train,shuttle bus or foot.A dedicated parking spot is included and is most welcome on arriving back from some of the busier neighbouring coastal hot spots.
The heart of the village is a maze of ancient alleys,staircases and quaint houses and workshops that make for fascinating wanders and exploration and let you soak up the local community spirit-friendly and lively with numerous restaurants,coffe spot,bar and shop that are of good quality and with young enthusiastic staff that facilitate many a pleasant evening only steps from your front door but without the crowds from the beachside haunts.Get back to your own balcony and enjoy the firework displays from across the bay for a great end to busy days.
Open country and ancient perched villages are only a step away in the other direction along the networks of walking trails and the train station down the hill gives access to Italy,Nice ,Cannes and other coastal strip favourites.The local "no 21" shuttle bus is superb,goes as far as Menton/ Monte Carlo and at E1.50 per person any distance is a gem-go down to the stop at the "Lavoir" below Jill's apartment and come back to "les Genets" above and you don,t have to climb up a step at all-just the one onto the bus.
This apartment,location and community are a "favourite place" for us and we would recommend to any whose interests are similar-a great mix of old and new Riviera but with the need to explore by foot on occasions to get the best that it offers.
This charming apartment is situated on the edge of the medieval village of Roquebrune, so benefiting from the romance & history of the picturesque ancient buildings, but having modern amenities itself.
The immaculately clean, winding streets of the old village surrounding the 10th century castle, which overlooks the area, give endless scope for exploring, and here you will find many restaurants & bars to suit all tastes & budgets. The famous 1000 year old olive tree is on the path down the hillside to Menton. Should you wish to walk, the coastal paths give stunning views & are within easy access.
Menton, about three miles away, is an attractive seaside resort with beautiful shops & a great many restaurants.
The Italian border, with proximity to towns such as Ventimiglia known for its market, is no distance. The opposite direction takes you to the glamour of Monaco, with the beauty of the famous casino, world renowned shops & the spectacle of the yachts in the harbour.
