The most memorable part of the vacation was the combination of the yogaclasses and local activities (hike, perched villages, cooking class). The nice and relaxing house, the kind people. Benoit even provided day rucksacks for the hike, with camel bags and walking sticks for a hike, it all was excellently organised! Read full review

The most memorable part of the vacation was that I actually relaxed.. Its not just the yoga.. its the ambiance in general. St Jeanet is not touristy at all, the hosts Benoit and Corinne are very welcoming. 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.


We are keen supporters of local farmers and artisans. All the produce is sourced locally and the fruits and vegetables are mostly organic. We only serve local St Jeannet wine in order to encourage the local industry and also arrange visits to the local cellar.
Having grown up in the region Benoit is understandably enthusiastic about the village and its surroundings. He is an excellent guide and willingly shares information relating to the history, culture and geography of the region. A stay here is a wonderful way to explore French culture.
The best action we can take to respect our environment is to let people know how to behave while walking in the countryside or in the mountains, such as keeping our litter with us, not taking flowers, respecting wildlife habitats etc. As a certificated walking guide and a professional mountaineer, this is Benoit’s duty. He also offers his guests walks in the National Park of the Mercantour just an hour and a half away from home, which is a protected area in term of plants and animal species. There are nearly 60 “endemic” plants species, and the guards of the park have already reintroduced animal species such as the “gipaete barbu”, a huge raptor bird that had been hunted until it disappeared, and vultures that travel now between this park and the regional park of the Verdon. Also, wolves have come back in the park via Italy through the Alps and are now protected as well. Guardians of refuges in the National Park sometimes have the opportunity to observe them.

Energy Efficiency:
We signed a contract with the electricity provider company (EDF) to use environmental friendly energy such as solar and wind systems.

We make sure to recycle our wastes by taking them to the specific bins (glass, card box, plastic, organic wastes), and encourage our guests to do so by providing specifc bins in each bedroom

Water Conservation:
All our toilets flush are equipped with low flush. Showers have different position to allow low pressure shower. We have removed all the previous bathtub which have been replaced by shower

Saint Jeannet has been classified as a Regional Parc two years ago, we feel happy to know that the local wildlife is now protected by law.

Building Practices:
Every year, when renovating/improving the building, we do our best to use ecofriendly material: for example this year, we changed the isolation of the roof using 100% natural sheep whool ?


We buy as many fresh products as we can, like fresh vegetables grown by local people. 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.

Social practices:
We buy as many fresh and local products as we can, mostly organic, from the local producers, where we also take our guests to visit: the local organic farm, the goat cheese farm, and the local vineyard

Purchasing policy:
We buy most of our food from local producers and small shops in the village, or from an organic shop in Vence, 10kms from saint jeannet.
