About this location
The Provence region
At Villa Clara you’re perfectly situated if you’re planning to explore and enjoy Provence and the Côte d’Azur. This region, or ‘department’, of Provence is called ‘Alpes Maritime’.
The small town of Vence is 10 minutes drive from Villa Clara and is famous as a home for artists, sculptors and painters. DH Lawrence, Matisse, Chagall and Carzou are among those who once lived here. Today, there are exhibitions of contemporary art, jazz and classical music festivals and a famous book market.
Exporing the Côte d’Azur is easy too. Villa Clara is only 16 kilometres from Nice and it’s a short trip to nearby Cannes, and historic Antibes as well. The airport is 22km away from the Villa.
The nearest train station is Cagnes sur Mer at only 8km of St Jeannet and the motorway as well is 8km away from the Villa.
The nearest beach is in Saint Laurent du Var (12km) and for ski lovers', the nearest ski resort is in Greolieres les Neiges (49km).
Heading east along the Riviera takes you to the principality of Monaco. This is a great drive along the Mediterranean coast. Italy too is within easy reach. The border is only 1 hour from Villa Clara, and from there you have easy access to the heart of Northern Italy.
Villa Clara is in the village of St Jeannet. The village is situated below a spectacular rock formation called Baou de St Jeannet.
The rock face rises over 200 meters. St Jeannet is beautiful, authentic and unspoiled. Excellent food and wine is available. And exploring the medieval streets and buildings is a ‘must do’.
Would you like to try your hand at authentic Provençale cooking? Or enjoy a guided walk or tour to discover beautiful places that only someone with local knowledge can take you to. Or brush up your French with a lesson or two. Oui?
If you’re staying at Villa Clara you have the opportunity to enjoy all these wonderful activities and experiences, for a great value price.
Benoit and Corinne live in St Jeannet, and can make all the arrangements for you, including transportation. All you have to do is enjoy the day. Whether that means tramping in the beautiful Alps with a wine and cheese picnic, or learning how to prepare some truly wonderful Provençale dishes

"Lovely house in a charming village"
Villa Clara is a lovely house perched on a hill on the outskirts of a charming village. The house is comfortable, well equipped, has breathtaking views and can comfortably accommodate 3 couples and 2 children. The pool is set at the bottom of a pretty garden, but honestly most of the time we spent at the house was in the kitchen and on the dining balcony because it was so comfortable and the views were so extraordinary. The house is in a great location for day trips around the Cote d'Azur. But if you stay at Villa Clara, don't overlook spending time in the village of St Jeannet. It has more to offer than initially meets the eye. Delicious freshly baked bread is only a few minutes walk and there are a couple of excellent restaurants. The caretaker met us with a warm and hospitable welcome and was a wonderful resource for the area.
