Right on the border between France and Italy, nestled in an idyllic setting between sea and mountains, there’s nothing that Menton does not have, and the wildly popular city is fully aware of its irresistible charms. Although it has some of the most expensive real estate in the whole country, the “Pearl of France” knows that people will still flock to enjoy its pristine beaches, colorful old town, beautiful gardens, animated harbor and trendy art venues. An ideal geographical location guarantees exceptional weather all year long, so you can go there any time and feel free to just sit back and marvel at the all-around picture-perfect locale.
However, if you wish to add some rambunctious fun to your blissful aesthetic experience, then you need to go in February for the world-famous “fête du citron”, which this year will take place between February 18 and March 9. As its name indicates, the Lemon Festival revolves around the bright citrus fruit, one of Menton’s most recognizable symbols along with its orange and tangerine cousins, and you’ll see it everywhere as the festivities get underway with spontaneous combinations of colors, lights, music and dance. While you can explore the quietly pretty town during the day, evenings will routinely bring moonlit parades ending with fireworks in an extravagant, joyful celebration.
Luckily, NY Habitat has some furnished vacation rentals in the French Riviera ready for you in nearby Roquebrune Cap Martin. In fact, the small seaside community, which boasts of allegedly the oldest feudal castle in France, is even walking distance from Menton and at close proximity to Monaco.
