About Olivia Chapman

I am a grateful mother of 3 devoted children; one still in college, two beyond and gainfully employed. A longtime resident of Vermont, originally from SF bay area, I enjoy a full range of all-season outdoor activities, music, foreign film, museums and travel. That said, I'm working towards the latter as I'm committed to seeing my remaining child through school, thus tethered to my work. Personal interests that give me pleasure include reading, watercolor painting and spending time in France, when I can, where I have family.

Olivia Chapman purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Olivia Chapman chose Mont Boron

This vintage 1920's apartment has been in my family for sixty years. We use this enchanting flat when we can, and share it with long-term annual, off-season guests as well as summer travelers.

What makes this apartment unique

Outstanding views, location, and quiet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We really enjoyed our stay @ the apartment in Nice. The view is spectacular -- the sunset, the boats, the helicopter shuttles to Monaco, the fireworks from Cannes. The location was great for exploring Nice and very easy access by bus to Monaco. With the extreme hot weather, we mostly visited the beaches! We went "canyoning" with For an extra fee, the tour co offered a shuttle to/from the canyon which was well worth it to avoid having to rent a vehicle and drive through the area! The extra space in the apartment was perfect timing as we had caught a bug and needed some time to rest, relax and recover."

Nice is NICE!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four ended our France tour with a stay in Nice. WOW! Just stunning! The Mediterranean Sea is even more beautiful than you can imagine. Olivia's apartment was absolutely lovely - from the art deco building, to the charming interior of apartment, to the view, oh, the view! An easy and beautiful walk to the sea and many amenities all within walking distance. Communication from Olivia prior to our stay and the guest book full of information in the apartment was SO appreciated and helpful. We were very comfortable in the apartment and would recommend it highly!

Happy 3rd time

  • 5 of 5

Olivia offered us the 3rd time wonderful opportunity to enjoy springtime for two weeks (3.-17.4. 20018) in Nice and to live in her cosy appartment in Park Louisa. We especially loved the meriterranean view from the vindow and from the balcony. Rooms are tidy and practical. Transport service in Nice is convenient.Housekeeper Lauretta was helpful.

The recent stay was our third long stay in this wonderful apartment. We are returning again later this year. We appreciate the location and views and the top floor with no one above us. The terrace is a real bonus as well and views from it and inside as well are magical. There is just something special about this place and to use a trite but true expression, it feels like home. It was a special treat to see the entire apartment repainted just before our arrival. Lauretta, the manager, is always helpful and a super gal. Olivia, the owner, goes over and above to make sure that everyone’s stay is as rewarding and comfortable as possible. Thank you for making this very special place available for rent, Olivia.

Wonderful apartment in a superb location with stunning views. Very attentive and efficient owner and local manager. Local manager, Lauretta, is exceptional. Couldn't recommend the apartment highly enough.

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Olivia for sharing your beautiful apartment. Everything was perfect, very clean and the views outstanding. We loved coming home after a day of exploring the city sights to relax and gaze out to the sea. The location was perfect for us, close to groceries, restaurants and the bus right around the corner. Lauretta was amazing and made check-in a breeze. We couldn't have chosen a better place for our time in Nice.

Peaceful, comfortable, well located with a fantastic seaview

  • 4 of 5

We were second time in Olivia´s cozy apartment (22.4.-4.5. 17) and had wonderful first week. But then came a problem with GRDF (French gas distribution): there were no hot water available. With Olivia´s financial support and Lauretta´s help we moved for the second week to a seaside hotel nearby, into the room with the seaview. So we could continue our holiday as planned. As an compensation Olivia even offered a free week for our next visit in Palais Bel Mare.

Our apartment is located just below beautiful Mont Boron, known as the “Hollywood” of Nice. The Club Nautique's public beach next to the old Plongee Aigle Nautique (diving platform), and now home to La Plongeior restaurant, is an intimate, uncrowded bathing spot, within a short walking distance. In the opposite direction, just beyond 'La Réserve de Nice' restaurant, lovely public cliff beaches can be found.

Shop on foot for kitchen staples at a neighboring supermarché or select your petit déjeuner of croissant and baguette from several local boulangeries. A brief stroll to the Port offers lots of dining choices. Or just wander by the harbor’s edge and enjoy the exotic yachts and colorful classic Niçoise fishing boats.

Place Girabaldi, 'Vieille Ville' (old town), Place Masséna, Nice’s Cours Selaya Flower Market, and Colline du Chateau (Castle Hill), as well as the Promenade des Anglais, to name a few popular spots, are also all within walking distance, some shorter, some longer. Local public transport is both an easily accessible and affordable option.
