Owned by a young and enthusiastic couple, Corinne and Benoit, this hotel-cum-chambres d’hôtes is very much part of the local community. Benoit is from the village and takes pride in taking clients walking on the Baou de St-Jeannet – the big cliff face which towers over the village sheltering it from northerly winds, and to the vineyard of the Haut Colline (see 'Wine Producers'). Corinne cooks all the meals – influenced by her time spent in the French island of La Réunion in the Indian Ocean, and offers cookery lessons. Activity holidays or just one night stays are possible in fresh, simple rooms – the welcome is friendly and charming. Wi-fi available in the rooms.

Useful information: Rooms: €74-€94 including breakfast. Three-night packages available including meals, see website for details.
