  • We loved the trail tip the bayou of Saint Jennet. The trail is well marked and the views are spectacular. Allow a few hours, or take some food and spend six hours on the various routes.  more »
  • What wonderful ride than that of Saint Jeannet Baou! We're going above the free parking or then we cross the village to find the start near the fountain in the village. The idea of the 400 m vertical drop was worried after a painful medical procedure, but not a problem! Ascension is a bit steep at the beginning, initially of St. Jeannet, and one blows a little if we lost the habit of walking, but this is done without great difficulty. Ascension lasts little more than one hour. The path is marked out of southern plants (thyme, cottony cists, Oaks vets...) and the view up there, at the level of the orientation table is grandiose: 360-degree panorama sea, villages and mountains... We wanted to do the loop, but we lost and we found ourselves at the top of a cliff with no way to get off. I think it takes towards the plateau and cross it to find the circuit. We did a u-turn to find the way to go and have also done wrong: the way we borrowed down was direct, but very steep: really need to return to the original path, which is easier to access. Attention, despite the proximity of the sea, do not hesitate to put on your shoes market, because at the descent, slides on the stones are frequent! An important detail to mourn: the circuit is very badly signposted and looking his way, both arriving on the set of the orientation table (which can be reached after a long workaround) than to go down the other side of the Baou. Finally, if you do not have the habit of walking, consider making some stretching... I forgot to do and am well sore! But whatever! It is really worth and we will gladly re-make this hike!

  • i often took strolls from vence to the summit back in the day. great view!
  • I love go for my lunch pose. The view is magnificent on the coast. The sky is a little clear even Corsica there. It takes a good shape and courir run at least the descent to go up and down in less than 2 hours, otherwise count rather 3-4 hours for the ride.

  • Good small 2 h about (at the beginning of St Jeannet) ballad, with a lovely view once arrived at the top. Attention to the descent, it slides :)
