Spectacular penthouse (entire floor, 200 m2) with panoramic terrace over Mediterranean, in quiet village away from town centres. Really comfortable well equipped apartment with balcony furniture. You will need a car here - the beach is 300m below the apartment but to get there you need to follow the roads 2km east then 2km west on the lower road. Shops 1km away in Menton (France); 3km away in Latte. Restaurants in Menton (2km), on coast road (3km), Ventimiglia (7km).

The space

The building lies in a National Park. So the views and tranquility are exceptional. Inside, the apartment is spacious and well fitted, including the best thermostatic taps, plumbing, heating and air conditioning. With two bathroom/shower rooms, and a water heating system designed to supply simultaneous hot water everywhere, guests do not have to wait!

The open American style kitchen/dining/living room is light and welcoming. The kitchen is particularly well-equipped with everything needed for up to 10 people.

There is full outdoor wooden furniture (table, chairs, deckchairs, umbrella) for the balcony. There is a balcony awning across the main room windows on the south side. So you can laze and sunbathe on the balcony in all seasons.

The geographically nearest beach is directly below the apartment -- but these are old Roman roads, so you need a car to go east 2km then back west 2km to get to the lower road, park and walk 400m to the beach. Other beaches are in Menton, 2km away or Ventimiglia, Bordighera, 8-12km away.

Guest access

Entire top floor of building, with 20m length terrace on south side. Nobody overlooks you.

Interaction with guests

I am not generally available locally. Contact me via the AirBnB app, or by phone, text, email (details in the apartment).

Other things to note

Parking on the street below, opposite garage #4 on lower group of garages.

Generally you will find basics (salt, sugar, flour, instant meals, butter [in the fridge or freezer], pasta, dishwasher tablets) left for you in the fridge and kitchen. They will all have been checked for dating and hygiene. If you would prefer not to use them, that is your choice. See this as a family home, not a 5* anonymous hotel! So please replace what you use.

Fantastic view, to wake up and have a breakfast on the terrace. Car is needed to move around. Check-in is simple. Some basic renovation of apartments and equipment

Chris is a very meticulous host. The property is in a great location with a killer view over the sea and Menton/Monaco in the distance. We were two families and fitted easily. There is a good collection of games, DVDs, and books to keep you busy at home. You do need a car though to stay here if you come from a big city. We loved the languid evenings spent on a vast terrace. Downsides: No wifi and sketchy mobile connectivity.

the house was amazing. from the views throughout the day, to the amenities provided, we all had a top notch stay in this cleanly and unique penthouse, hosted by a gracious host!

Lovely location, however some furniture was broken, a few knobs and handles as well. Hand soap not provided in bathrooms which I thought was inconvenient.

I am trying to identify what was broken and what knobs and handles were missing, without any success so far.
