Well located little house near the coast.
This is a small house right next to the owner's house in a great location, - it's literally 10-15 minutes from Monaco and even closer to Mention and Roquebrune. The Mediterranean is very close too, in fact it's visible from the house. The house itself is compact, there's really just one room with a bed, a dining table, a very small kitchenette, and a shower room/toilet. There's no sitting area inside, but there are some chairs outside, including a covered area with a BBQ. There are a couple of facilities shared with the owners too, a small pool and a Jacuzzi. We made use of both and they were a lot of fun. There's wi-fi too as you'd expect, which is slow but enough for a bit of light browsing. A few downsides - the parking isn't great, simply due to the geography of the area. Housing here is built right onto the side of steep hills, with long, narrow driveways. Because of that, there's essentially no way to allow for guest parking. As a result the only place to park is outside the front gate of the house (although still off the main road), and over to one side so the owners can still get their own cars out. It's a very difficult parking spot to manoeuvre into and is also extremely close to trees and bushes. The owner Tiziana is incredibly friendly and helpful and really couldn't have been nicer. She was a perfect host. Overall this is a great spot in a truly beautiful part of France and we spent a very enjoyable week here.
