(WE’RE IN SOUTHERN FRANCE, GMT+1)

Menton is a commune in the Alpes-Maritimes department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region in southeastern France. Situated on the French Riviera, along the Franco-Italian border, it is nicknamed “La perle de la France”

Thanks to a beneficial subtropical microclimate (316 cloudless days a year), winter is practically unknown in Menton. Therefore, you can enjoy a beautiful sea and the nearby sunny mountains all year round.

The scents, colours and tranquillity, but also the diversity of the activities that can be practiced here throughout the year, make Menton “the pearl of France”, as stated by the geographer Élysée Reclus. The town is also the first town of the Alpes-Maritimes to receive the designation “City of Art and History”.
