Hilltop villages accommodation
Medieval villages, chateau hotels & rural retreats
There are several lovely options to stay in the area without paying the premium prices for Monaco itself. Up the coast towards Italy are the seaside towns of Roquebrune Cap Martin, with its mix of medieval hilltop village and beach holiday resort, and Menton, a picture perfect town just before the border. To the other side, on the west of Monaco lie Cap d'Ail, an elegant coastal area and Eze, one of the best examples of a preserved hilltop village in France. The train line runs through the coastal towns, making travel to Monaco very simple if you prefer not to drive.
