Menton, city of Menton




Situated at the extreme south east of France, Menton is all at once a city of gardens, a seaport, and a beach resort.



Menton, garden
It has won the competition for the best city of flowers in France five different times. Its exceptional sunlight and the subtropical climate make Menton ideal for growing orange trees, lemon trees, palm trees,and mimosa.

Here are extracted rare essential oils and the gardens seem to have been created out of dreams.
