Amazing location, the best staff/owners you could wish for! The breakfast is the best I've ever had in France:) Sunday Benoit, the owner and professional hiking guide organized a hiking trip through the canyon of Cagne. He prepared camelback backpacks for everyone then we started with a village tour, where Benoit very professionally and topped with tons of humor, explained the history of St Jeannet, ask him about the donkey!:) then we went down into the canyon, by the water, with our guide giving constant explanations and helping everyone. Finally we arrived at one of the greatest picknick spots by a small pool with a waterfall. Everyone started unpacking their backpacks discovering the goodies hidden inside, we had an amazing lunch, tuna sandwiches, local saucisson, cheese, garden tomatoes and of course the wine, home made traditional, cookies, AND hot coffee to end the feast! On the return we took a slightly easier route but at one point the terrain got a bit dusty and slippery, Benoit worked his magic and layed a rope to help everyone to an easier descent. When we got back we enjoyed another glass wine of the local Rosé. It was really amazing I've never met such a professional and funny hiking guide and host! Certainly if you want to enjoy St Jeannet and the surroundings this is the place to be! Thanks again!
