Make a holiday rental apartment or villa Saint Jeannet, France your home away from home

Perched on a ledge beneath the gigantic rock outcrop known as Baou de Saint Jeannet, the village of Saint Jeannet looks out across the Provence countryside towards Vence. The village is truly beautiful, and brilliantly, never overrun with tourists. The town has been the haunt of artists and painters for centuries, and you will know why as soon as you arrive at your Saint Jeannet property.

Things to do on holiday to Saint Jeannet, France

Wandering the streets of Saint Jeannet is a wonderfully calming experience. The narrow, twisting streets are timeless, with ancient stone buildings separated by ornate arches and small viewing terraces overlooking the sea. The village is known as a ‘witchcraft’ centre, and you can often see women using herbs and unorthodox methods to cure various ailments, which is fascinating to watch if nothing else! For the best views it is necessary to climb the Baou de St. Jeannet. It is quite a testing walk, but the hidden caves create a great excuse for a quick rest!

The Baou de St. Jeannet is great for climbing. There are around 160 routes up the rock possible, ranging across all levels of difficulty. Beginners can have a hugely enjoyable climb whilst their more experienced counterparts can really test their abilities, all meeting at the top for a well earned drink. In the other direction, pot holing is also extremely popular from Saint Jeannet accommodation, although a steady nerve is certainly required! The largest cave in the Baou de Saint Jeannet plunges over 350m.

The view is spectacular from the apartment looking out over the valley towards Antibes. The property used to be an old cellar (cave) and Daniel and Sylvia have kept some of the original features giving it a sense of history. We had everything we wanted and Daniel welcomed us on our first night there. It is ideally located for walking in the hills but also for driving to the many beautiful hilltop villages in the area and of course not far from Nice and Antibes.

We were a party of 6 including our 2 18 & 20 year boys and their girlfriends. The accommodation was perfect. 3 great sized bedrooms. The outside areas including the terracing,verandas and pool were absolutely superb. The Villa is just outside of the village, either a 20 minute walk ( hilly) or 3 mins in the car. About 20 mins from Nice so a car is definitely needed. The village is small but has a reasonable supermarket, a lovely bakery and a couple of restaurants-very quaint and typically French. Jany and Gerard, the owners, stay in the adjoining house and ares always available and willing to help. Such a lovely couple, nothing Seems too much trouble. We will return and would thoroughly recommend if you are looking for spacious villa in a relaxing setting but a short drive to the buzz of the Cote D'azur. Thanks agin to Jany& Gerard

There was ample space for us 2 families of 4 and the gardens, views and swimming pool added to the whole experience. The villa was very clean and the kitchen well equipped. There was plenty of off road parking too. Marcel was a great host ensuring that we were fully acquainted with the facilities and providing really useful tips on where to go and eat. We were within walking distance of a supermarket, chemist, bakery and restaurants. The slightly elevated position of Saint Jeannet also means that we benefitted from slightly cooler air than the down on the coast which was very welcome in August. The air conditioning downstairs also was an added bonus on particularly hot days. Saint Jeannet is a good location if you want to experience a real French town without too many tourists particularly as it is on the doorstep of so many other interesting and pretty villages like Vence, St Paul de Vence, Mougins and Grasse as well as the bigger tourist attractions of Nice, Cannes, Antibes and Monaco which we visited during our 2 week stay. We also made use of the local tennis courts. I would definitely recommend this villa to others and hope to come back again soon.
