French but yet so italien ! This elegant and colorful town has earned the nickname of "the pearl of France" due to its mild climate magnificent gardens and pleasant way of life, attracting numerous winter holiday-makers and residents.

FYI. Menton, city of citruses: a lovely legend is attached to the foundation of Menton. When Adam and Eve where banished from Paradise, Eve took a golden fruit. Adam got upset as he feared God's anger and asked her to throw away the fruit. After having crossed mountains, valleys and plains, they stopped on a remarkable bay with a mild climat and luxuriant vegetation. Everything reminded Eve Eden's sweet life. She burried the lemon and later was born a little paradise on earth: Menton.
