                                                              convenient, modern apartment

                                                              The apartment's space is very economically used to include all mod cons. There is a good supermarket nearby and sufficient cooking equipment. Communication about our stay was very good, even advice about a bus strike the day we arrived. Pauline, the greeter told us how to visit her doctor and even offered to accompany us if we needed help with the language. The apartment was relatively quiet given its central location near Promenade des Anglais.

                                                              We have rented apartments all over France for 15 years and the Maison de la Tour is hands down the best. Ivan has created a beautiful place with meticulous attention to detail such as the custom iron grill work throughout, a total of 4 TV's with Apple and Netflix access, one for each bedroom and another in the main living area. The mattresses are comfortable and the linens and towels luxurious. The kitchen is spacious and equipped better than any we have visited including ours at home. Privacy is assured with each of the 3 bedrooms occupying their own floor with separate bathrooms. The location is superb, on a short pedestrian only street bordered on one end by the wonderful market and the other end by the sea. There are several good restaurants, cafés and bakeries literally steps away. The piece de resistance is the roof top terrace with its marvelous views over the sea, port, bell tower and Picasso Museum and is equipped with a large table for roof top dining and a new Weber Grill which we enjoyed. We can not say enough about Ivan and this town house apt.

                                                              "What a view " top floor apartment with great terrace overlooking central Nice.

                                                              We spent three nights in May on the top floor of 14 Blvd. Dubouchage. We are already planning our return trip. Great location- we walked everywhere, only a few blocks to the ocean and old Nice. This apartment has been recently fully renovated, it was clean, spacious and bright. What a view! The large terrace faces out over Nice with a view over the rooftops to the old town. We were met by the property manager on the check- in and out who helped us with all our questions. We wholeheartedly recommend this spot and I'm working on my "francais" for the "rendezvous".
