Interaction with Guests
As this is my holiday home and I live in Milan you will be received by my lovely friends Annie and Jean Pierre who live close by.
The apartment is located on the hill of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, at a walking distance to the the beach (10min) and the train station (15 min).
We suggest to arrive by car to be able to travel in the area easily. There is a private parking place (included in the rental) in front of the building.
There is the 100 bus at about 300m which connects Menton to Monaco which passes frequently.
A local bus stop is about 100m from the apartment but passes rarely.
The train station is at 15 min walk and connect you easily to the rest of the coast and international railway stations from where you can reach Italy.

Linen and towels

Daily cleaning services
Please let me know if you need extra cleaning and I will organize it with Annie.
We expect guests to leave the house reasonably clean when they leave (clean dishes, garbage dumped, etc...)
Check in and check out times are flexible if possible (if there are no other guests leaving or arriving the same day). Please be precise about your arrival time as somebody will be waiting for you. Late check ins (after 9 pm) are charged 20€.
Please feel free to smoke on the terrace, we would be happy to keep the apartment a smokeless area.

Though we never met Paolo, his resident hosts Annie and Jean-Pierre met us at the apartment as planned, and they were charming, delightful, and helpful. They made us feel entirely welcome. As described in the airbnb listing, the apartment has a stunning view from the terrace. We spent many hours there enjoying the scenery and warm breezes. Also, once we became familiar with the roads in the area, the apartment became a perfect home base from which to explore the local beaches, the cities nearby, and the smaller villages inland (to do so, a car is a must). While we enjoyed the restaurants of old Menton and the Roquebrune peninsula, our favorite dinner was at our own terrace: pasta, salad, wine et al overlooking Monaco Harbor. The fireworks display was an added and surprise bonus. I highly recommended Paolo's apartment.
We had a wonderful vacation in Paolos appartement. It was like the pictures showed us before and it was fully equipped to feel so welcome from the first second we come in. Annie and Paul are such lovely hosts in the name of Paolo. They introduced us with everything in the appartement.
Great, spacious appartment, with amazing view over the Monte Carlo bay! Annie and Jean-Pierre are very kind and wellcoming hosts. We spent a great week here. Comfortable bed and sofa-bed, well-equipped kitchen, quick wifi.
Tout a été tres bien, l'appartement c'est comme dans le prescription, le panorama c'est exceptionnelle. Par contre ça monque parfois l'eau chaude, tu viens fatigue apres une journée et tu veux faire un douche et tu n'a pas eau chaude, c'est le seule truc que je peux remarquer.. En rest tout ça été parfait. Merci a Annie et lui marie pour tout les renseignements, ils ont été très sympa.
Paulo was really quick to respond to my original enquiry and then subsequent questions in a very friendly manner. The arrangements for getting into the apartment worked smoothly and the local contact Annie was very thorough talking us through what we needed to know ( in French - I got most of it!) and left her contact details which we didn't need as everything went well. The apartment absolutely lived up to the description : the view is stupendous from dawn until night time when the sun disappears behind the Tete du Chien and the lights come on in Monte Carlo. It's well located, only 5 mins from bus stop and 10 mins to local supermarket. The 100 bus service between Menton and Nice gave us lots of options of interesting places to visit. Be aware that everywhere in Roquebrune is either up or down so you get plenty of cardio work! The apartment was very spacious and always warm - a bit too warm at night. We had everything we needed except an ironing board and 2 more soup/dessert bowls (only 4). The TV is too old and too small but wifi is good so we used our laptop to stream programmes. No working freezer ( not a problem in winter) - space could be used for a small dishwasher? The induction hob was fast and the 6-in-one table top oven proved very useful when cooking for friends.
Very nice, quiet and very clean apartment, the view from the terrace is a masterpiece.
We spent five wonderful days in very interesting, clean and well equipped apartment. We have to say that the best is awesome big terrace and the view – it is really breathtaking. Annie and Jean Pierre were very friendly and helpful. We recommend this apartment.
