The Countryside around Menton
|During your stay in Menton, at the 3 star Hotel Méditerranée you can take time to discover the beauty of the surrounding towns and villages.|
At only a small distance away, with breathtaking views over the Mediterranean Sea, the history, culture and beauty of the perched villages around Menton, have always attracted tourists from around the world.
The surrounding countryside - Saint Agnès
|10 km from your 3 star hotel in Menton, perched at nearly 800m on a rocky peak overhanging the Mediterranean Sea, the village of Saint Agnes, is the highest coastal village in Europe. |
As a privileged point for observation and defence, the Maginot de Sainte-Agnès structure was part of the military programme of the "Section Fortifiée des Alpes Maritimes" (SFAM).
Huddled inside the restored ramparts of the castle, the little medieval garden leads the visitor to stroll and dream along the lavender lined pathways and discover an exceptional panoramic view.
Get there by the coastal route, then take the route through the Borrigo valley or by the Corniches des Serres de la Madone.
The surrounding countryside - Gorbio
|11 km separates Menton from Gorbio, and although you have just left the beaches of the Côte d'Azur, you find yourself in Gorbio, in the middle of a wild and grandiose rocky environment. |
You will be charmed by this old medieval village, adorned with giant succulent plants and Mediterranean flowers giving these old stones, steeped in history, a smart touch.
The surrounding countryside - Castellar
|Situated only 6km from the Hotel Méditerranée, this charming little village nesting in the alpine peaks has beautiful panoramic views. This medieval village is packed with small alleyways, great favourites with tourists. You can admire the many chapels dating from the 13th Century in Romanesque style and the ramparts which surround them. |
Our tip: The Castellar cultural service gives free guided visits of the village. Duration around 1.5 hours.
The surrounding countryside - La turbie
|Located on the Côte d'Azur only 17km from your hotel in Menton, the medieval village of La Turbie, famed for its monumental Trophy of the Alps, is perched above the Principality of Monaco between Nice and Menton. |
In this beautiful village with authentic charm, there is everything to enchant you:
the most famous panoramic views in the French Riviera, a rich and varied historical and architectural heritage, an old town with paved, flower-lined alleyways, numerous well maintained hiking trails, varied sporting activities, and the Parc Naturel de la Grande Corniche.
The surrounding countryside - Eze
|Between Nice and Monaco, 20 km from the Hotel Méditerranée of Menton, the picturesque medieval village of Eze hanging onto the cliff edge, is one of the most beautiful villages in Provence. |
Its pass rises to 675m, less than 5km from the coast, offering a breath taking view over the Côte d'Azur, with Cap-Ferrat to the west, and as far as Italy to the east.
Our tip: Don't forget to visit the exotic garden which dominates the most striking panoramic view in the world.
