We loved our stay in this delightful gite. Our only regret was that it was only one week. We would have been happy to stay for longer. Anne and Richard could not have been more welcoming and helpful, offering lots of useful advice on where to eat and places to visit. The gite itself is just as shown in the photographs, offering all the creature comforts you would expect and the bonus of English language tv to watch while relaxing.
We enjoyed our stay in Saint Jeannet which is a charming medieval town. The view form the kitchen window all the way down to the Mediterranean was memorable. The house is unique in that it was once a wine cellar for the bigger house and you see evidence of the bedrock within the house. It is well equipped. It made a great home base to visit many of the adjacent hill towns. We also took day trips to Nice, the Picasso museum in the Antibbes, to Eze and spent one night in Avignon. The weather in April was cool and pleasant and we had sunny days with a few rainy nights. Saint Jeannet has a little grocery story, a couple of bakeries, a butcher, and a bar/restaurant with a stunning view. Saint Jeannet has a dramatic location with the craggy Baou towering over the town. For those unfamiliar with small hill towns, please rent the smallest car you can, as driving within the narrow streets of the old town is a challenge. Park in the public lots at the edge of town. There is parking near the house, but while we were there construction work on the access road made it not easy to use.
