On the coast
The sea, the town, leisure, culture… All the charms of Menton are only a few steps from the Hôtel de Londres. Less than five minutes away on foot, you can indulge in relaxation and water activities, explore the ancient streets and baroque masterpieces of the old town, and spend a fun evening in the Casino Barrière. You can also quickly reach Cap-Martin and its magnificent Le Corbusier trail overlooking the sea or leave the town and go hiking in the Mercantour National Park or the Vallée des Merveilles.
The Old Town
With its roofs of round tiles, ochre facades, and picturesque narrow streets leading to flowered squares, the old town of Menton evokes an air of Italy! Stroll from the old fortifications to the ramps leading to the Saint-Michel complex and catch a glimpse of the intense blue of the Mediterranean, the contentment of a cat basking in the sun, or the scent of barbajuans, our delicious traditional fried ravioli.
A few steps from the Hôtel de Londres, you have the choice of the soft sand of the Plage du Borrigo or the shiny pebbles of the Plage du Casino. Each Menton beach has its own character and its regulars. Perfect for swimming, relaxing or water activities!
Cocteau and Menton
The writer, artist and filmmaker Jean Cocteau fell in love with Menton in the mid-1950s. Follow his footsteps in the heart of the town... From the marriage registry office for which he created a charming fresco, to the Bastion, a 17th century fortification he completely redesigned as a showcase for his works, by way of the Musée Municipal Jean Cocteau – Collection Séverin Wunderman, the creative genius certainly left his mark.
