About Hans M. Janus

Anne Marie and Hans Janus here sitting on the terrace in their rental home in St Jeannet. Their primary home is a little north of Copenhagen. Hans has a Phd in physics and has been a business executive in Denmark for many years and Anne Marie has an MA degree in languages. She has been teaching and part of her life she also was active distributing high fashion clothes from Italy to the leading fashion shops in Scandinavia.

Hans M. Janus purchased this villa in 2003

Why Hans M. Janus chose Saint-Jeannet

For many years we had been travelling in Italy and Southern France. Finally we focused on the French Riviera which we found having a fantastic selection of possibilities regarding tourist sites, nature and picturesque villages together with all the entertainment in Nice, Monaco and Cannes. Swimming in the Mediterranean Sea all year round and only one hour drive to the nearest ski pist in winter were also adding to the choice. We then made a strategic document describing everything we wanted for our future villa regarding size, location, orientation, number of rooms, pool, view, distance from the airport, walking distance to a charming village with restaurants etc. After intensive search the villa-st-jeannet was found to fulfil all the wishes and it was purchased in 2003.

What makes this villa unique

The villa in St. Jeannet is situated just outside the charming medieval village, and every morning it is a fantastic experience to walk up to the baker's enjoying the magnificent views over the French Riviera all the way. Sometimes a visit to the butcher's is also part of the stroll. He has the best meat possible including that of his own lambs in the surrounding mountains. Morning coffee and the lunch are enjoyed on the terrace by the pool, and in the evening the outdoor kitchen is the base for grilling the meat and vegetables. Sometimes the meals are enjoyed in one of the village restaurants or in the old city of Vence nearby and sometimes visits are made to one of the many art museums or the markets in Antibes. In case you need exercise, a walk to the top of the 800 m Baou just behind the villa will certainly make you fit. After that a relaxing stay by the pool makes you think life is just worthwhile!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have returned from our all too short trip to France and I just wanted to let you know that we were very pleased with our stay at your villa in St. Jeannet. It is a beautiful and comfortable home with an amazing view of the surrounding hills and the Mediterranean. I particularly enjoyed the sun porch early in the morning with the Baou St. Jeannet casting its shadow over the hills. Although the drive up was a bit challenging, we soon learned to negotiate the curves without too much difficulty. Thank you for allowing us to rent your lovely home.

.Thank you, also, for recommending the Chantegrill restaurant. We had dinner there three times during the week and were very pleased with both the food and the friendly service.

..But, again, our time at the Villa St. Jeannet was very enjoyable and I would readily recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the surrounding area.

..Once more, thank you for allowing us to rent your lovely home. It really surpassed all our expectations.

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the house in St Jeannet two times (2012, 2014) and we are going there a third time. That in itself is testament to the quality of the property and the reliability of the landlord and the house manager (no hidden charges, things get fixed quickly if something stops working etc.). The house is well-situated, within walking distance of the restaurants in the village of St Jeannet. Within a few minutes driving distance there is a well-equipped supermarket, petrol station, boulangerie and pharmacy.

The house is spacious (our company has consisted of 4 adults and 3 kids), clean and well-managed (nothing is broken). The pool is good, which is important for the kids. The kitchen is well-equipped and next to the terrace where at least we have enjoyed most of our meals.

All in all, this is a superb house for anyone wanting to stay in St Jeannet for a week or more.

A wonderful villa!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful villa with good space and everything you need for a nice vacation. The view is panoramic. If you rent a car it´s possible to visit many wonderful places in the area.

We visited fantastic citys and beaches. Some evenings we used the barbecue in the garden and it was very nice. A swim in the pool when the sun sets is also something special!

Huge villa with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Probably the best villa we have ever stayed in for the views and surroundings - up in the hills above Nice and just below the imposing Baou de St Jeannet. Fantastic villa on 2 floors (self contained apartment on ground floor). Lots of twisty road to get there but worth it

Air con throughout. Good pool with outdoor dining space as well as conservatory with dining table next to kitchen which we used all the time.

St Jeannet (which is a lovely and picturesque village) was a (fairly hot) 10 min up-hill walk in the morning to the boulangerie, and a much more pleasant 5 minute stroll down-hill back from the restaurant (there are 2 or 3 decent ones) in the evening.

A great week - thanks you Hans.

Perfect Reunion Property

  • 5 of 5

This spectacular property is as advertised and more. It does have stairs and it is uphill to the village but felt these quite manageable. Our group of college friends has been gathering on and off for 45 years and this location was certainly the favorite. We especially appreciated all the different types of common spaces this holiday home offers for visiting, dining and just relaxing. We took advantage of the proximity to St. Jeannet, walking in every morning to the delightful markets and selecting our provisions for the day. Freshly baked bread, croissants, locally prepared deli items, area cheeses and of course neighborhood wines were all available. Views out over the Côte d'Azur were spectacular as well as views of the Baou of St. Jeannet behind us. This large rock formation could be seen all over the area and acted as a beacon guiding us home at the end of each day. Owner Hans Janus was always willing to answer our questions (before and during the visit) and even called once to see how we were getting along. Caretakers Annette and Rick met us on arrival to review all the home's features, pool security, and tell us about the area. One highlight of the trip was Annette's suggestion to contact the owners of The Frog's House in St. Jeannet and inquire about local day trips. Roads, like many in France, are narrow and winding so finding out about local tour options was very appealing. Led by the charming and knowledgeable Frog's House co-owner Benoit, we hiked, visited Tourrettes Sur Loup, picnicked at a local goat farm, tasted St. Jeannet wines in the nearby winery, spent a morning in old Nice-dining on local tapas and toured home that afternoon on a incredibly scenic drive above Cap Ferrat and Villefranche-sur-Mer..... We highly recommend this property.

The perfect villa for our family reunion! In a beautiful setting close to a charming village.

  • 4 of 5

We were fortunate to meet the owner, Hans, who showed us around the very clean villa. The road up to the villa was fun albeit challenging!

Hans kept in good contact prior to our visit and replied promptly to any questions we had.

The villa is situated conveniently just an hour or less away from attractions e.g. Vence, St Paul, Cannes, Antibes, Grasse, Nice, Monaco, etc.

We shopped in the supermarket (which had all we needed) and also in the little village (bakery, butchery, fresh produce market, etc) - we catered ourselves for breakfasts and dinners so can't recommend any restaurants in the area.

Would definitely confidently recommend this lovely villa to family and friends.

Fantastic Villa on the edge of a beautiful village

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful 4 week stay in this extremely well-equipped and well-appointed Villa. We were met by the friendly, local, English-speaking caretakers who ensured we had everything we needed. The views from the Villa were breathtaking and a constant source of pleasure from either the Winter Garden or from beside the pool. It was a short walk to the authentic, ancient village of St Jeannet with its baker, butcher, farm shop, restaurants and bar and a 10 minute drive to the larger town of Vence. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here to anyone! Thank-you Hans for letting us stay!
