The views from the rooms are breath taking. The owners go the extra mile to ensure that your stay is as perfect as possible...A unique and restful experience which we hope to be able repeat one day. After only five nights we came home feeling recharged and with many fond memories. Read full review

We stayed at the house for 4 nights with our teenage boys and we were so happy we did. Corinne and Benoit make you feel welcome as soon as you arrive...It was one of the highlights of our 3 weeks in France! Benoit does great excursions so highly recommend you go on his tours too! Read full review

The most memorable part was staying in a very old village and going on 3 days of guided tours with Benoit. Benoit is very familiar with the area and with people living near St Jeannet and the days spent with him were very enjoyable and enlightening. Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

The best action we can take to respect our environment is to let people know how to behave while walking in the country side or in the mountains, such as keeping our trash with us, not taking flowers, respect wildlife habitats etc. As a certificated walking guide and a professional mountaineer, this is my duty.

Also, during the transformation of the place, we equipped the showers and toilets flush with sustainable system to use less water.

We signed a contract with the electricity provider company (EDF) to use environmental friendly energy such as solar and wind systems. Also, we make sure to recycle our wastes by taking them to the specific bins (glass, card box, plastic, organic wastes), even if the French system doesn’t make it that easy yet. This could seem nothing but for the size of our structure, it is maybe the best we can do.

Lastly, in all the activities we want to provide to our guests, there won’t be any that could have a damageable impact on environment.

People

We buy as many fresh products as we can, like fresh vegetables grown by local producers. Corinne shops at the local butcher, buy the bread at the local boulangerie everyday, and find local honey and cheese at the peasant market in the next village. We also recently met a young man who just started to make his olive oil after spending a year to renovate (helped by his family), an olive tree fields, that had been abandoned as the work was considered too hard. We offer our guests to visit the unique vineyard that remains in the area, which is also located near the village of St Jeannet. The same family has been growing this wine for more than 3 generations, despite the fact that all the other vineyards had been abandoned when the perfume industry in Grasse had offered the peasants to buy flowers instead. Also, visiting some villages around that are being abandoned slowly by slowly by young people who don’t want to work in agriculture anymore make us believe that it will help to maintain a little activity and encourage the few ones who have decided to still live out there. At last, being in a small village ourselves, we are often in contact with our neighbours who are very keen to come and sit on the terrace sometimes and talk about the old times of the village, which is we believe a nice way to learn about the culture of a country. And this is maybe the best part of a trip overseas.
