“« The Frog’s house is the perfect little hideaway just half an hour driving from Nice! Saint Jeannet is a beatiful old village with everything you need: nice restaurants, a great bakery and hiking trails starting right in the village. Corinne and Benoit are lovely hosts providing the perfect breakfast and offering tours to explore the area nearby! Can’t wait to visit again! » (Trip Advisor)..
Saint Jeannet is a charming and typical french medieval village, perched at the foot of the mediterranean hills called « Baou ». Only 15kms away from Nice côte d’azur and the French Riviera, but so much more quiet and relaxing. Its position at 450m of altitude offers a great view on the coast and a moderate temperature in the middle of the summer.
You will be happy to find lots of local stores : 4 restaurants, 1 grocery store and 1 butcher, 1 bakery, 2 cafés/pubs, 1 art galery from local artists, 1 jeweler maker, 1 pharmacy, 1 post office… that makes it very enjoyable to live in as a local, and that pleases a lot our visitors. Among the restaurants in the village, all within walking distance from the FrogS’House, we can especially recommend for its fantastic French gastronomy: “la table des Baous” owned by French chef Sébastien Liprandi (http://www.latabledesbaous.fr/). Try also “le petit grillon” chez Christopher and Tiphanie. If you want to try the best organic pizza of the côte d’azur in the warmest atmosphere, go to meet Hugues and zazou at the pizzeria “le vieux four”. At last, all summer long, Le “Sainte Barbe” will also welcome you for a great diner on its opened terrasse with a great view over the coast.
Don’t hesitate to let them know you are staying with us, you may get a special attention 😉
Hiking and rock climbing are very popular in Saint Jeannet.
Benoit, graduated from the “Département de la Jeunesse et des Sports” with a mountain guide degree, will be happy to take you on a hike to the top of the Baou.
As for great adventuruous experience, the local « bureau des moniteurs » will organise canyoning, rock climbing or via ferrata in the surrounding area.
For any other kind of activities (water sport such as canoeing or river rafting, mountain bike, paragliding…), we will be happy to introduce you to our local partners.
