Before we left Australia, I'd seen an auberge called The Frogs' House, in a small hill town behind Nice. Didn't book answer weren't sure where we'd be. Fortunately, they had one room when we called. Corrine is a chef, who does culinary 'experiences', shopping in markets, then a cooking lesson back at the auberge. Benoit is a guide, and takes groups …

Our dinner at VistaMar in the Hermitage Hotel (One of Monte Carlo/Monaco's top 10 restaurants) was complete with foie gras, sea bass, lamb, chocolate fondant and Grand Marnier Souffle... a perfect ending to an amazing meal. We finished the night in a small club cut into the side of a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean.
... It can be quite disorienting to when your used to paying the person that serve you and ten they ask you in another language to pay elsewhere! It was a very good croissant though! It had a subtle salty taste which was nice :). After strolling through the small streets for a whole we went back to the hotel to book another night and pay for some wifi. We made good use of the wifi too, you tuning comedians and then quickly looking up trains for the ...
... cars following a resident get bounced into the air as the cylinder reemerged from the hole in the pavement with a pneumatic hiss. The car’s undercarriage was pinned and the front of the car was held aloft in a humiliating display for all to see.

We then drove through the winding mountain roads of Monaco, searching for the famous James Bond road where he drove high on the cliffs right above the sea in Golden Eye. We had a real fun time with the GPS trying to find the Grande Corniche coming from the direction of Nice. The GPS easily gets confused if there are too many ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Frogs' House Saint-Jeannet
Had seen this before we left Australia, but wasn't sure it would fit our schedule.
The extended stay with walks & cooking classes would have been great. Amazing views down to the coast.
Only downside is the drive up & down to get to other parts of the riviera.
But you could just stay here & veg out, & enjoy local activities (winery, walks, short trip to st paul de Venice).
Would love to come again for a longer stay.
