Charming & Comfortable Escape

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to France, and our first experience in a rented home. The home itself is situated in a ridiculously charming village - not far from Saint-Tropez, but far enough that you'll feel as if you've escaped to another world. Actually, you HAVE escaped to another world. The house itself is cozy, as advertised. Our bed was comfortable. The bathrooms feel tiny, but are fully equipped. The kitchen has the basics. Furniture is dated and a bit worn, but I suspect, intentionally so. If your inner-diva requires service and luxury, find a 5-star hotel in the city and prepare to spend considerably more than 100€/night. The operative word here, is 'charming.' Embrace the atmosphere, and disconnect from the chaos of modernity. Walk the streets of the neighborhood, and you might feel as though you've wandered onto a Hollywood backlot. However, the centuries-old facades you see contain real people, with rich histories and stories to tell.

The perfect stay in La Garde Freinet

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at this location in La Garde Freinet, and once again, I could not have been more pleased. It is a perfect location, away from all the tourists in a quiet village with all that you could need right in town. It is close enough for day trips to Monaco, St. Tropez, the wineries etc. The house has true charm, and it is always clean, comfortable, and welcoming. I look forward to coming back again next year!

Trip worth doing again!

  • 5 of 5

This home is in a perfect location in the South of France! The small town in tucked away in the hills but very convenient to many places (Nice, St. Tropez, Monaco, wine country...and so on.

The home itself is very well kept and has everything one would need. It was great to have 2 full bathrooms and 3 full bedrooms. It is just a couple blocks from the center of town where there are great restaurants, cafes, bakery, grocery, shops...etc.

I would recommend this place and will definitely return there again!

If you are looking for a relaxing comfortable home away from home Provencal style village house, then this is the spot for you. Located in the charming Saracen hilltop village of La Garde Freinet, its twice weekly markets and good choice of restaurants, local shops and endless hiking make it a perfect place to enjoy a holiday. St Tropez and the coast are only 20 kms as are some of the best beaches and coastal walks. The house is set in the heart of the village. There is easy access to the house with ample public parking. Good walking to be had along quiet wooded tracks close by. Well furnished with antique and modern furniture, our spacious accommodation is casual, light and comfortable with Provencal character.
