“Best B&B in south of France”
Reviewed 2 September 2013 via mobile

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!

We stayed at the Frog's House this past April. We apologize to Corinne and Benoit for taking so long to thank them for such a memorable stay. From the very first e-mails we sent to inquire about a reservation to the delightful room, the authentic breakfast and the caring owners, our stay at the Frog's House was a wonderful experience. The room and house were immaculate, the breakfast delicious, and Corinne and Benoit were professional yet very friendly and personable.
An additional benefit to staying at the Frog's House was meeting the other travelers. Saint Jeannet is a small gem of a village, and the other guests of Corinne and Benoit seemed to realize how lucky we all were to be able to experience the charms of both Saint Jeannet and Corinne and Benoit.
We are already planning our return visit to the Frog's House.

Lovely B&B in a great area with lots of stuff to do in the outdoors: hike, rock climb, swim a creek. Benoit and Corrine are charming hosts! The accommodations are very clean and simple. Breakfast was always a treat: great espresso/coffee, fresh baking, cheeses, fruits, Corrine's homemade yoghurt and jams. If you are looking at staying in the area with a quiet atmosphere but still exciting new things to see and do then don't miss out. St. Jeanette is a charming village. It is situated "up in the hills" 25-35 minutes from Nice and bus service is limited to specific times. If you plan on going back and forth to Nice with out a car (which is not needed) then it will take some planning but St. Jeanette is a lovely retreat at the Frog's House. Some great memories created here! I would make a point of returning here if I were to be in the area again.

Room Tip: For the light sleeper bring earplugs. The location is on a "busy" street for the village...

The Frogs' House is AMAZING! Hosts that treat you like royalty and a location offering something for everyone. Charming village, sporting opportunities galore and views to die for. The fresh breakfasts on the terrace were delicious and the ambiance so relaxing. Nice to mingle with other guests before setting off on your day. We will be back.

Room Tip: The suite on the top floor was perfect for our family of four!

DELIGHTFUL is the most fitting description for the very unique Frogs´House and the charming owners. Tucked away in the beautiful, tranquil village of St. Jeannet (where not only the road comes to an end but also the hustle and bustle of Nice) this small hotel offers peace-lovers all they can wish for a relaxing stay. We loved our spotlessly clean, airy room "Philomène" with its view down to the coast and (for French standards) spacious bathroom. We award 5 stars to the simple but excellent lighting in the rooms - better than in some 5 star hotels we have stayed in around the world - and to the fact that there was NO T.V. in the room, well done! Corinne´s superb breakfasts on the terrace were a wonderful way to start the day - her home-made jams delicious (mmm, the apricot one....), joghurt, different breads etc. and the guests passed around the cheese-board from table to table.
How nice to be greeted every morning with a genuine happy smile. The guests obviously felt very much at home as many of them wandered in and out of the kitchen either for a chat with Corinne or to return their breakfast crockery. In fact it was just like staying with friends.
We would like to thank Corinne and Benoit (who was out climbing, hiking etc. with the more active guests) for a very memorable stay and wish them both all the best with their unique Frogs´House (a great name, such a sense of humour!). We are now recommending this little treasure to friends.

Benoit and Corinne couldn't have been nicer - helpful, accommodating and, importantly in this case, patient. They have organized things very well. The open kitchen where guests can help themselves to drinks and snacks is a wonderful idea. It makes it feel more like a home than a hotel. It meant I could relax knowing my parents were in good hands. They loved the breakfast on the terrace in particular. Thank you very much indeed.
