We're actually the neighbours, who have been commissioned by the Danish owners to manage this villa. As such, we're around if you need us, and can offer advice on everything from attractions to restaurants to the best cycling routes, but you're perfectly welcome to ignore us if you prefer! Alex bodde i Oslo for mange år siden on snakker noe norsk, hun jobbet også for Viasat/TV3 i London og forstår litt svensk og dansk.
Why Alex chose Saint-Jeannet
It's a cheery house, quirky in places, but guests have commented on the perfect 'flow' - in that two families, or generations of families, can live separately on two levels, but each level then flows directly into the communal living and kitchen areas, and of course outside. It's a relaxing, non-precious family home.
What makes this Villa unique
The beautiful, quiet area, where neighbours include wild boar and deer, with some of the best views in the Riviera. A quiet lane, very little traffic, but within walking distance of a pleasant village with bars, shops and restaurants.

Everything is just right here
First, the communication with Alex was good, she was very patient and flexible ;) ( we decided very late) Then the place, it is beautiful and with great view! Everything here is just right and cozy. The pool is large and deep (rare in France) and filled with fresh water from the mountains. The surroundings offer enough for weeks. Bakery, and some nice restaurants in the small village St. Jeannet and in close distance of lots of other choices. It is 2 hairpin curves to the house, and some roads around can be small / mountainous, but no problems even with a large SUV.
We recommend this place!
Thank you Marleen for this lovely review! It was such a pleasure to meet you and we'd love to welcome you back some time.
We had a wonderful week at La Piccada. There was plenty of space; we loved the outdoor barbecue area and used it every day. The pool was fantastic, even without any heating - we all enjoyed it to the full. St Jeannet is a beautiful place, and the baou provides a stunning backdrop to the area. The restaurants were superb, and we ate extremely well. The walk up to the village (it's quite a hill) was definitely worth it each time! We would recommend Le Bivouac, Le Vieux Four and La Table des .Baous. The nearby waterfalls were wonderful, and we enjoyed Vence.
Alex and Ed were welcoming and helpful. We only had a week, so we really appreciated their advice on the area. We would love to return for a longer trip.
Thank you so much for having us!
Thank you for the lovely review, and we hope to see you again some time!
Our stay in La Piccada
What a Gem! We have just returned from our week in St Jeannet in the villa La Piccada. The location is wonderful with views across the valley to the sea, taking in the small hilltop villages. The villa is comfortable, clean and homely, enabling you to relax in its spacious sitting room as soon as you arrive. The pool area has covered eating in the "Pool House", with a BBQ which we enjoyed. Good walks but hilly and so you need a reasonable fitness. A walk to the village and back with fresh bread and croissants can be made in 30 mins. The village is traditional and charming, with the rock, the Baou, providing a dramatic backdrop. The two recommended restaurants in the village are good but with limited menus and there are very many other places to eat that can be reached by car. Ed and Alex are on hand, but not intrusive and make you very welcome. We would come back.
Thank you so much and we hope to see you again some time!
A fantastic peaceful location, amazing views/pool
We had an amazing week in St Jeannet. The house is very spacious and we had a great time in the pool with our two year old who certainly advanced her swimming prowess. Gorgeous quiet evenings by the pool. The BBQ area is great and the relaxing lounger chairs by the poolside are exactly what's needed to properly relax! The June sunshine was fantastic. Alex and Ed couldn't be more helpful and hospitable during our week. We would love to return one day!
Thank you, and we'd love to see you again some time!!
We stayed one week in La Piccada in September and we had a great time. The Villa is great and in typical Provence Style, the rooms and the pool area are very spacious so that everybody has enough freedom to do what he wants. The house is equipped with everything what you need, comfort is good, and everything is clean and working. All rooms have a nice charm and we felt us very good. The view from the house into the valley is stunning, and in general it is very calm. The charming village Sainte Jeanette is just a 12-15min walk away, the bakery there is simply fantastic, I still miss the fresh bread and croissants there. There is also a butcher and a vegetables/fruits store and some restaurants but we didn’t try these out.
The big shopping at the begin should be done with a car in one of the big supermarkets (Intermarche in la gaude?) or at the new Lidl in Gattieres (maybe 15-20min drive away) which is really big and offers all products at very reasonable prices.
The house is also a perfect starting point for trips to Nizza or Antibes or into the mountains, there is so much to see within a one-hour drive range. The roads for the last 1km to the house are quite small and steep, so it is better to have a not too big and expensive car.
Alex and Ed, who take care for the house, were so friendly and helpful, thanks again for everything.
We will come back!
Thank you so much for your kind words, and we really hope to see you again one day!
Cote Azur i sin bästa skepnad
En perfekt avstämnd tillvaro i ett underbart boende under Baous skyddande klippa!
Vi var 7 vuxna personer som tillbringade en vecka i en formidabel miljö.
Stora fina sovrum, ett kök inne och ett ute allt som gjort för att lätt och ledigt kunna
laga sin frukost/lunch eller grilla ( två grillar, en gas och en kolgrill) en formidabel kvällsmiddag!
Vill man ta en drink före middagen kunde man slå sig ned på poolkanten och njuta av solen/solnedgången!
Hela huset andades lungn!
På morgonen tog man en rask promenad, uppför, till byn Saint Jeannet och inhandlade sitt bröd. Bara det gav en underbar känsla, blomdoften var njutbar!!
Allting som vi visste om huset och läget, stämde 100%-igt.
Det vi inte visste det var att det växte apelsiner på tomten, vilket var en trevlig överraskning! Poolen utnyttjades till fullo. lagom stor, men kunde varit varmare, vilket nog berodde på att det var tidigt på säsongen!
Bra kontakt med Alex, han som hade kollen på att allt fungerade i huset det gjorde det!! Vi kan verkligen rekommendera detta boende både till barnfamiljer och till vuxna sällskap!!!

Tack så mycket - thank you so much for your kind words - it's lovely to hear how much you enjoyed La Piccada, and in particular its poolhouse and barbecue area. We agree that the bakery in St Jeannet is really special. We look forward to welcoming you here again soon.
St Jeannet is 10 km from the nearest beach at Cagnes-sur-Mer, and the seafront has many kilometres of cycling lanes and a large pedestrian area for roller blading, walking etc. At various beaches there are activities such as jet skiing and kite surfing. There is plenty of seafront entertainment for children, including Marina World in Antibes. St Jeannet is ideally located for cycling, hiking and rock climbing on our own mountain, the Baou. There are many museums and art galleries in Nice, St- Paul-de-Vence and Antibes, all of which are in easy reach.
