Walks near your 3-star hotel in Menton
Talking about Menton inevitable makes you think of the Cote d’Azur, sunshine and the world-famous lemon, the town’s symbol and a source of considerable pride. But the Pearl of France (as this town is known) has plenty of other tricks up its sleeves. For example: it’s home to plenty of nearby walking routes and hiking trails. Your Royal Westminster hotel advises you the walking itineraries so that you can enjoy an active weekend in Menton.
The most accessible trails… and the most original.
As you leave Menton, you can enjoy a number of routes which are all easily accessible. Their accessibility doesn’t make them any less interesting. For example, take the Douaniers trail to walk along the coast between Menton and Monaco, going through Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. You’ll have the chance to admire Villa Cypris, Le Corbusier’s cottage and the hilltop chateau of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. An invigorating seaside walk with plenty of photo opportunities, leaving from your 3-star hotel in Menton.
If you’re looking for an increasingly popular sport, there’s always sea walking. In short: with the help of a paddle, you walk in the sea, with the water up to your chest. With minimal equipment (a wetsuit and diving boots) and as part of a group, it’s an all-round endurance sport. It works all of your muscles and is a good source of cardio whilst you enjoy the canyons of the hinterland.
For more hardy hikers
If you’re looking for something a bit more challenging, try the Cabanelles route. Nearly 6 miles long and with an elevation of more than 750m over 5 hours, you’re certain to end up feeling tired but content. The Cime de Galian (Galian peak), at more than 1100m high is the literal high point of this excursion. It offers stunning views of the inland area around Menton and Nice. A real treat for the eyes and a great way to enjoy some fresh air during a weekend in Menton.
On request (depending on the time of year), hiking and aquatic excursions (canyoning, via ferrata …) can be organized from the hotel, supervised by a mountain guide.
The easier Château de Sainte-Agnès hike will give you access to one of the most striking panoramic views in the area. At 800m and ranked as one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France, Sainte-Agnès is the highest village on the Mediterranean coast. On your travels, you can explore the old town, its alleys and visit the ruins of its chateau before descending the zigzag path of the col de l’Olive (Olive pass).
