1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The location. St Jeannet is located at the base of a pair of incredibly picturesque crags, and the village is compact and handily placed with walking trails both up to the hill tops and down to the adjacent gorge. The daily tours, with Benoit as a very knowledgeable and helpful guide, give you a great introduction to the area, both the natural landscapes and the historical and cultural diversity of the region centerd on Nice.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

You'll get most out of the visit if you are prepared to walk a bit - St Jeannet and the area around it provide some steep hills but the payoff is in the natural beauty and views.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The house is well set up to minimise its environmental footprint. The tours ensure you get to spend in support of the local economy. The small groups ensure minimum impact.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very enjoyable and very memorable. Benoit and Corinne are excellent and committed hosts, and the accommodation is superbly situated.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The entire trip was memorable however my favorite aspect to this trip was the people I met. I went on this trip alone however I met some very friendly people who were also staying at the house. And the day trips with Benoit and Corrine felt more like a friend showing me around the area rather than a small group tour, which is something I really loved!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

The weather was beautiful when I was there but bring layers because some of the day trips have you going to higher altitudes. Also if you go on the day trips and really want to do something that wasnít mentioned on the itinerary, donít be afraid to ask about it.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes the B&B encouraged conservational behavior and the day trips were typically to local villages.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was a truly amazing experience. If you are looking for a blissfully relaxing vacation filled with visiting beautiful locations, meeting lovely people, and eating great food, then this is perfect for you. Benoit and Corrine really made me feel welcomed.
