A neatly proportioned 1 bedroomed apartment ideal for a couple but there is a large double sofa bed in the living area and two couples or a couple with two children can be accommodated for a short break. The apartment has a comfortable lounge with all modern facilities (TV and stereo) plus dining and kitchen area fitted with hob, oven, fridge and microwave and washing machine. The bathroom has bath with shower fittings and WC.
A feature is the small but delightful balcony with views over the village rooftops and mountains beyond where two can enjoy your meals 'al fresco', perhaps with a chilled bottle of the local rose.
Two comfortable, modern holiday apartments in the beautiful old village La Garde-Freinet, in the foothills of the Massif des Maures, about 20km inland from St Tropez. The apartments are both on the third floor allowing glorious views from the balcony over the picturesque rooftops to the mountains in the distance. The apartments can be reached by lift or stairs. • There is an attractive shared swimming pool and patio area in the landscaped gardens. •Visitors can be admitted to the apartment by videophone entrance. •Secure car park is provided and there is an allocated parking space.
A 5 minutes stroll to the village centre with its shops bars and restaurants, ideal for a relaxing break yet only a 20 minute drive down the mountain to the excitement of the Cote D'Azur and St Tropez.
The apartment was well equipped and had everything we needed for two people. The pool is so calm and tranquil and never got over crowded and was the perfect place to spend a few hours each afternoon. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and we spent many long lunches soaking up the ambience. The location, although hilly, gives easy access to all the attractions of the glamorous Cote D'Azur. The only negative points were no air conditioning and poor wifi connection (sending iMessage with one photo was difficult).
Die Lage in dem malerischen Örtchen La Garde Freinet mit (aus unserem Appartment im 2. Stock) wundervollem Blick über den Ort sowie auf die umliegenden Hügel des Maurengebirges. Bäckerei, Fleischerei, kleiner Supermarkt sowie Gaststätten sehr gut fußläufig zu erreichen.
Das Appartment ist funktional aber schmucklos eingerichtet und ausreichend groß.
Das der Ort recht abseits liegt und angrenzende Ortschaften, Strand oder Autobahn nur über serpentinenreche schmale Sträßchen zu erreichen sind, sollte einem bewusst sein. Uns hat es nicht gestört.
Das Appartment war sehr schmutzig. Vor allem die Küche hätte erstmal einer Grundreinigung bedurft. Z.B. Grünspan am Wasserhahn, Speisereste an Besteck und Geschirr, ... Ekelhaft. Am liebsten wären wir gleich wieder abgereist. Wir hatten glücklicherweise eigene Küchenutensilien und Bettwäsche dabei.
Das WLAN konnten wir nicht nutzen, der angegebene WLAN Schlüssel funktionierte nicht, auf Nachfrage per Mail erhielten wir einen anderen, der aber ebenfalls nicht funktionierte. Vor Ort gab es keinen Ansprechpartner, nur eine Rufnummer für Notfälle.
The village of La Garde Freinet was founded as a fortress in the eighth century. It has retained its medieval charm and authentic french character. There are half a dozen haute cuisine restaurants in the village, as well as cafes and bars to relax in, and for those who prefer self-catering there is a useful little supermarket, bakeries and other shops, so that your hot croissants and fresh fruit, vegetables and meat are only five minutes walk away. Markets are held twice a week, and various fetes and fairs occur during the holiday season.
The picturesque area with its cork oak and chestnut groves can be explored by walking, cycling or by car. Local towns include Grimaud, Gassin, Cogolin and Ste Maxime.
St Tropez with its glittering nightlife is less than 20 km away, where you can relax in quayside bars and restaurants face to face with the rich and famous on their gin palaces moored at the quay. The area is famous for its lovely beaches such as Tahiti-Plage and Pamplonne.
