Information about the Site:

Nestling at the foot of an immense "baou", i.e. an impressive cliff overlooking the entire village, Saint Jeannet is a charming little village located between Vence et Nice.

It is a perfect location for biking and hiking, and also swimming in the sea.

In an exceptionally beautiful and peaceful setting the village of Saint Jeannet seems to have been blessed by the Gods. Few tourists are to be seen, yet the village is particularly enchanting with its well-kept pretty streets, some beautiful 17th century houses, its gate hollowed out of what remains of the ancient defensive walls

The Provence region

From Saint Jeannet, you can reach the main towns and villages of the french riviera:

Vence, Saint Paul de Vence, Biot, Antibes, Cannes, Nice, Saint tropez, Monaco.......

Saint-Jeannet

The village of St. Jeannet sits on a ledge beneath the towering Baou de St. Jeannet, with the Baou de la Gaude just to the right (east), and the Baou des Noirs and Baou des Blancs lined up to the west towards Vence. The village is beautiful, picturesque, authentic, and not overrun with tourists.

Take the time to explore the village before you hike up the baous. There are a lot of little streets winding back through the ancient buildings, and you'll see the lovely Eglise Paroissiale St-Jean-Baptiste, built in 1666 and currently being renovated (28 May - 26 July '96). Wandering through the old streets, you'll discover a little "Panorama" terrace after going through a beautiful low arched passage. Among the old buildings and other ancient things to see in the village are a couple of pretty fountains, one of them dating to 1875.

The Baou de St. Jeannet also has well-hidden caves up on the side, where the villagers have sought refuge in times of trouble for many, many centuries. The Baou de La Gaude, to the right looking up from the village, has the remains of a neolithic fort at the peak. Another feature for walks up this Baou is "le vieux chêne", an oak tree at least 600 years old, on the wooded peak about 200 m north of the Baou's front peak.

The GR51 (Balcony of the Cote d'Azur) goes through the village.

Going east, the GR51 leaves the village by a road to the north, then traverses the lower part of the Baou de la Gaude. It continues northeast to Gattières, drops down to cross the Var river at the Pont de la Manda, then climbs up to Aspremont, Tourrette-Levens and points east.

Going west, the GR51 climbs up the valley between the two Baous, then zigzags through the hills before dropping back down to Gourdon from the north.

The GR51 up through the Baous connects with an endless number of other trails going out into Beyond.

Walks

Baou de St. Jeannet, 45 min, 807 m.

Baou de La Gaude, 45 min, 792 m.

Bezaudun, 2 hrs. Two different trails allow a loop hike. The northeastern trail goes past the Mouton d'Anou (1078 m). The southwestern part circles the Colle de Menon (1029 m) and follows the GR51 for most of the distance to St. Jeannet.

Le Broc, 2 hrs. The trail (starting with the GR51) goes up the valley between the Baous and continues on almost due north. You can loop back to the west, near Bezaudun and the Mouton d'Anou (1078 m), to avoid returning by the same trail, except for the part closest to St. Jeannet.

Le Castellet, 1hr 30, 712 m. This is an ancient fortified bergerie (sheep farm). It's abandonded now, but some of the buildings are in good condition, and the surrounding woods and fields are lovely.
