The apartment is completely private to the main home, we always had our privacy, yet we were thrilled to be invited to dinner and aperitif's with the family on two occasions throughout our 2 week stay, which will always stick with us as some of our favourite memories of our holiday.
The village is just idillic, and the views from the bedroom and kitchen windows are incredible — over the mountains and out to to Antibes with the sea in the distance.
We could reach Saint-Jeannet by car in around 20-25 minutes from Nice airport (once we got used to which route to take). The roads are typical for the terrain, winding back on themselves and quite narrow in places, but are a joy to drive and in good condition.
We drove to so many places within easy reach — Saint-Paul de Vence, Èze, Gourdon and the lovely drive along the nearby Route des Gorges, Antibes, Menton, Ventimiglia (Italy), Nice, Vence (the nearest larger town)… we could go on but these were our favourites!
Daniel and his family were great at recommending places to go and pointing them out on the map.
We loved this place so much — we will definitely be going back, and recommend it to everyone we know.
