Mediterranean warmth in winter
Warmer than Nice, Menton has one of the balmiest climates in France.
People have visited Menton for decades, to escape the harsh winters of Northern Europe.
Come for the weather, and you’ll be following in famous footsteps – Menton was favoured by Queen Victoria, and still attracts contemporary celebrities.
Keep an eye open and even if you don’t see a Royal, you might spot a famous face from stage or screen.
All that sea air, sunshine and soft breezes will leave you with the glow of summer, as some Europeans shiver and add another warm layer of clothes.
If you can’t make it for the festival, in any season, Menton is a delight.
Time seems to stand still here, in a world of unimagined splendour, and before you know it, you’ve fallen in love.
