How would you compare Menton with Villefranche-sur-mer as a base to explore the Cote d'Azur for a first-time traveler (to the French Riviera) for two-weeks? I am looking for a quiet village or small town atmosphere, away from hordes of tourists, and crossed off Antibes, etc. for that reason. Somehow I narrowed down to my list to Menton and Villefranche-sur-mer. I know the latter is much smaller and seems to cater to a more upper-tier clientele, while the former has attracted many French retirees.
I do speak French and have a degree in art history, with interest in French history and literature. I will not have a car.

Heading to Italy this May and have a few days where we can fly into Nice and see the area including Eze and other hill towns. Was thinking about making Menton a base verses Ventimiglia ?

Hello all! Anyone know of a bedroom that can be rented for July 4 - Aug. 21, or there around the dates for me and my daughter (5 yrs.)? Hotels don't rent for more than 25 days and I don't need a year contract for an apartment. The summer rentals have some openings but nothing throughout the summer. All seem to be booked in between the dates.
Any advice for something reasonably priced, all help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED! [email]
