    Our whole trip to Saint Jeannet and the Frogs' house was simply wonderful. The community, the yoga, the activities, the people, the food, the surroundings. I fell absolutely in love with Saint Jeannet and I will be back.

    We didn't stay for the whole week. We should have. And I didn't love the local mosquitos as much as they loved me.

    This was a wonderful week of meditation and yoga in the most spectacular setting- a quaint village above the Côte d'Azur. I loved my accommodations at The Frog's House. Corinne and Benoit are warm and gracious hosts. I liked sitting at the breakfast table with people from around the globe.

    Benoit guides the yoga and cultural experiences from a desire to share what's beautiful in us and in the world around us. I enjoyed the places he took us to that included the traditional sites and the unusual (like the picnic at the end of the mountain road at the goat cheese farm).

    I loved the culinary lesson with Corinne. She provides delicious food and an atmosphere of welcome. The Frogs House is your home away from home.

    I feel renewed.

    This yoga retreat was exactly what my 23 year old daughter and I needed! I'm 59 and love yoga of all kinds, but mostly vinyasa. I have just started meditating and found that this retreat was even more helpful for that practice! There was an AMAZING hike to a waterfall with homemade lunch and local wine that was just perfect, so beautiful and idyllic. We also had a very nice tour of just a few important parts of old-Antibes, not touristy, and a great vegetarian lunch. Benoit is more than a yoga teacher, he's an extraordinary guide and historian of the area. Also very flexible in timing and offerings. I just can't say enough about Benoit, Corinne, St. Jeannet, and our lovely trip.

    We needed a fan for our room, and voila, there it was.

    I would definitely recommend this place. The location is beautiful and the activities were very well organized. Benoit is great as a yoga teacher, a tour guide and a host. Beautiful vibes among all the other guests - like in a family!

    Perfect combination of tranquility and adventure ...

    Benoit , the host, is a blend of the Dalai Lama and Bear Grylls... Delightful :)

    All good.

    I stayed at FrogS' House for 4 days after a 6 day whirlwind French Riviera sightseeing trip. This was just what I needed. Tucked far away in the beautiful mountains, with spectacular views over the whole Cote d'Azur, the charming village of St. Jeannet is an amazing location for this retreat. We started the mornings with a 7am 1.5 hour yoga session with Benoit and returned to find the most delicious breakfast spread you can imagine (my mouth is watering as I type this...). After this, we get 1-2 hours to freshen up before the daily activities start - we went to a trip to Antibes and Benoit was such a fun travel guide as well. Yoga time again at 7pm, after we hike up the steep streets of the village to get to the top of a water reservoir with sweeping views of the coast. The yoga is very relaxing so if you are expecting to sweat and do a lot of flows, beware. Although you will sweat on the way to the yoga place :) This was exactly the kind of yoga I was expecting and I loved it. I wasn't expecting though that this will be such a fun experience altogether, with all the fun trips and getting to know all the other travelers. I was expecting a few yoga sessions here and there in the beautiful French countryside, but it was so much more. Benoit and Corinne are so friendly and helpful that even if you barely speak a common language, they will make you feel at home (this last sentence to summarize my mom's experience!)

    It was really really hot. Not that Corinne and Benoit can do anything to change the weather :) But if you, like me, prefer moderate climates, maybe stay away during the hottest summer months. I was told April-May/ October will be better times for weirdos like me who like Dutch weather.

    Welcoming hosts. Lovely atmosphere, food and relaxing hatha yoga.

    Not clear from the website what is included in the price.

    Corrine and Benoit combine their expertise and warmth in food, the local area, history, and yoga. More than a retreat, they had an itinerary for each day! Travels up and down serpentine roads to villages, Nice, the beach, even including a wonderfully prepared picnic in a special setting with spectacular view. After a full day, left to wander St. Jeanette and be part of a lived village, it was complete with what could be a Michelin rated restaurant. Truly a unique experience!

    Still in the glow :)

      We spent a week at The FrogS'House and spent four days on excursions with Benoit. He is the most amazing guide with local knowledge, stories, history lessons, and access to places you would never go to without him. The day spent with Corinne cooking was so special, after cooking our lunch, then sitting on the patio eating and drinking and talking with her and other guests. St. Jeannet is a lovely village with a few fun places to eat. I could never have expected to have such a magical week in this beautiful part of the world.

      St. Jeannet is quite high in the mountains of the Cote d'Azur. We thoroughly enjoyed this quaint experience. The owners are wonderful and provide a cozy and homey feeling. The location is perfect for Tourettes sur Loup, Grasse, Florian, St. Paul de Vence...all "must sees". Tours can be arranged although we had our own vehicle. Be sure to request a view room looking out to the valley below.

      We came across The FrogS'House in a Rick Steves guidebook. On a whim, I booked it. My friend and I couldn't have been happier. Tucked up on a hill in an ancient village it was a perfect spot to begin our exploration of Provence. Our room was well appointed with comfortable beds, a large, well-appointed bathroom and a balcony over looking a breath taking valley. Benoit was nice and welcoming. Breakfast was amazing, with homemade yogurt, fruit, croissants, breads, and delicious coffee. Wander around the village and fall into the magic of The Alps Maritimes.

      I spent a week at The FrogS' House as part of a two-week stay in the beautiful Côte d'Azur and it far exceeded my expectations (and I am a bit of a fusspot!) If you are looking for a home-from-home holiday in this stunning area of France, that doesn't feel like a group holiday, but has all the bits you want from a group holiday taken care of i.e. an interesting and varied programme, transportation, equipment, delicious, healthy food, and a wonderful guide etc. then I cannot recommend this week enough! Benoît and Corinne are fantastic hosts and incredibly knowledgeable. Whatever your party size or requirements, they adapt and deliver with ease and minimum fuss. I felt incredibly relaxed and refreshed by the end of the week, as the balance between group and self-time worked perfectly, regardless of one's 'travel status' and there was absolutely no 'group herding mentality', strict schedules or restrictive time frames - there's so much flexibility! I'm still missing the delicious, home-made, organic breakfasts on the terrace every morning, especially the fig jam! This holiday ticked every box on my wish list...!

      Thank you Benoit for the wonderful wine tour you gave us this week. We learnt so much and we truly appreciated how much it is centred around all organic wine and local produce. Your passion for a more sustainable and authentic way of life is fascinating and inspiring. We will treasure our bottle of red and drink it when the time is right, and we will certainly never forget Corinne's mouthwatering pie!

      We loved The Frogs House. A beautiful location and a perfect place to stay in it! This little B&B is a trip back to the 60s when we backpacked through Europe and lived a simple life with the locals. But now we are older, we wheel our luggage and use our phones for maps! But The Frogs gave us the best of both worlds.The venue is right in the middle of the tiny village of St. Jeannet and walkable to the village car park where you leave your car when you arrive. The owners, Benoit and Corinne, have restored an ancient house with all the modern amenities and creature comforts. Rooms are small but have everything you need; they are bright, airy and comfortable with views out over the village or Nice and the sea. Big focus here on sustainable living too, which we greatly appreciated! Breakfast is served every morning outdoors (weather permitting) or in the kitchen at a long communal table where you get to know your fellow travelers. Homemade yogurt, fresh fruit, cereal, French baked goods, local cheeses - who could ask for more! Corinne and Benoit are consummate hosts and tour guides, so take advantage of their knowledge! There is also local bus service from the car park to Nice and other places to visit, so you can leave your car for a few days and enjoy the view! We look forward to our return visit!

      Benoit and Corrine are so welcoming and knowledgeable. We had a fantastic, fun-filled time and made new friends. It was such a beautiful area that we all wished we could stay much, much longer. The activities were each a full day - really good value, the breakfasts and picnics were amazing. We loved every minute.

      I headed for the mountains behind Nice to enjoy some space and I was given so much more. Saint-Jeannet and the frogs house is special. Corinne and Benoit have the talent of bringing people together from different countries with different languages and infusing them with the charm and character of a place rich in history. A small, intimate place to stay and enjoy a simple and refined way of being. A hill top village to venture forth from.

      We have learned so much on our trip to Saint-Jeannet including how to live a better, happier more balanced and more environmental friendly life! We've enjoyed relaxing and rejuvenating yoga sessions each morning and learn all about the French culture and history. We've met some lovely people and we were simply spoiled with the amazing authentic French cuisine. The landscape is just amazing and will leave you breathless! Plenty of activities and great hiking trips! We have experienced the true French life style in a charming typical French medieval village only 15 km away from Nice and the French Riviera.Simply beautiful, can't wait to come back!

      This has to be one of the best treasures in the French Riviera. Corinne and Benoit are awesome hosts and absolutely loved our stay there that we extended our stay by one night. I do want to do the tour next time so don't be like me and book it in good time. Just amazing!
