About this listing
The flat is situated on the 2nd floor in an very well kept former Hotel Building. It consists of a living room, 1 bedroom with 1 double bed and 1 single bed, a separate kitchen and a bathroom with washer/dryer. There are 3 small balconies facing east with a spectacular view of mountains, city and the sea. A local market as well as supermarket and a few shops are only 3 minutes away, and the beach is within 1000 m. The Palace is situated in its own park, where there is the possibility of parking.
My wife and I spent two wonderful weeks in this beautiful apartment. We loved teritoria in front of Winter Palace, clean air and peacefulness from the bustle of the city. Every day we admired wonderful views of the city, mountains and sea. We would love to come here more again. Thank you Inge!
We have been in Menton before, and decided to stay again in the apartment. Right choice. Perfect place to relax and have a wonderful vacation. Thank you Inge!
Til tross for sen ankomst, ventet vertens representant tålmodig på oss og viste oss til rette.
We had a wonderful week at the winter palace. Inge's apartment is spacious, clean and well lit. We loved the sitting room with the big sofa. The apartment is situated on a hill and is a very welcome execise at the end of the day (5 minute climb). The heat during the night was easily dealt with with the fan. The seagulls were noisy, but that is a Menton thing. We were warned and ear plugs do the trick. We highly recommend this apartment when visiting Menton and the rest of the region.
Beautiful building, lovely apartment. Didn't realise how steep a hill and how many steps we had to climb to get there though.Exhausting. Very quiet at night and beautiful views of the town.
We enjoyed a very happy week in Menton at the end of September, staying in Inge’s apartment. The Winter Palace evokes the spirit of the Belle Epoque era. The high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows mean that all the rooms are flooded with Mediterranean light. Opening the shutters each morning to watch the sun rise over the sea was an absolute delight!
We were greeted on arrival by Djordje, who had prepared the apartment and switched on electricity, water, wifi router etc. Everything was clean, tidy and welcoming. The cupboards are full of a wide range of useful items such as a hairdryer, paperbacks and insect repellent (I wish I’d found it before the Menton mozzies found me). The bedroom is large and comfortable with masses of hanging space and hangers. The beds were comfortable and extra linen was available if needed. The kitchen and bathroom were well equipped.
You need to be reasonably fit to choose this apartment. There is the climb up the alley-way from Menton, the steps up through the Winter Palace’s garden (which is delightful) and more stairs within the building. During our stay the lift was out of order, which added to the fitness workout, as the apartment is on the second floor, but we understand that it will soon be back in service.
We would recommend this apartment as a charming place to stay, and hope to return in the future.
Eine charmante und sehr geräumige Wohnung in einem ehemaligen, gepflegten Luxushotel, welches zum Appartmenthaus umgebaut wurde. In die Altstadt bzw. zum Strand kann man in 10 Minuten zu Fuss laufen. Das Bett (für uns immer ein wichtiger Aspekt) ist bequem, sehr geräumig und ohne Fussenden, was ja große Männer immer stört. Die Balkone sind zwar eng, aber der Balkon an der Küche bietet Platz für 2 Personen um abends ein Glas Wein zu trinken. Die Küche hat fast alles was man braucht. Allerdings keinen Geschirrspüler (kann man drauf verzichten), und keinen Espressokocher (hatten wir selbst mit). Allerdings war der Backofen scheinbar nicht funktionsfähig. Bad und Dusche, alles bestens. Wir haben eine Woche in Inge´s Wohnung verbracht uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Kommunikation mit dem Verwalter vor Ort war problemlos (in englisch). Wir hätten gerne einen zweiten Schlüssel gehabt, da meine Frau und ich auch mal seperat etwas unternehmen, dass hatte allerdings nicht geklappt - vielleicht das nächste mal. Summasumarum ist die Wohnung klasse und ihr Geld wert.
Thank you for your nice response, it is a bit difficult to make official comments, when you not always meet the persons, who are visiting. Our communications has however been fine, and I would love to welcome you back.
About 2nd key, it is usually there, but the guests before you, did not leave it where we could get hold of it before your arrival, sorry.
Regarding the oven, you have to use matches to turn it on (as mentioned in the description of the flat), but I will have a look at it anyway.
