Menton lies on the French-Italian border, on the edge of a bay between Monaco and the Italian Riviera. There is sunshine 331 days of the year plus a perfect microclimate and no mosquitoes. You have the Alpes Maritimes mountains behind you and the Mediterranean in front, plus inspiring Italian architecture and French cuisine. You can ski in the mountains in the morning and swim in the Mediterranean in the evening.
