This superb villa offers the best of both worlds. The villa is situated in an extremely peaceful location, set in 2.5 acre grounds within a cork oak forest with stunning views towards the coast. You can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the location (which is not overlooked), while La Garde Freinet, a medieval fort town with a good range of local shops and restaurants and a market twice a week, is no more than 900 m away. St Tropez, meanwhile, is a short distance away, with its port and its beaches, offering the very best of shopping, restaurants, glamour and night-life.

About Steve Frobisher
We are a professional couple, with two post-university girls. We live in Twickenham, London, and it has always been our dream to buy a typical Provencal property close to the St Tropez coast. We think it is an absolutely beautiful area, with so many things to do, in addition to relaxing by the pool.
Steve Frobisher purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Steve Frobisher chose La Garde-Freinet
An opportunity arose to buy this traditional farmhouse which is set in 2.5 acres of wooded grounds, secluded yet close to the village and the coast. We spent 12 months renovating the property, maintaining all the traditional features, yet ensuring that it contained all modern comforts. We are delighted with the result. The house, incidentally, was previously owned by the celebrated French film director Jean Luc Godard and his wife Anna Karina.
What makes this Villa unique
As Collette said: 'Whether to go walking or swimming, whether to have a rose or white, whether to have a long day or a long night'.
Pool / Spa
A stunning property
We had a wonderful stay at La Bergerie. It really is a true home, the attention to detail is superb and we had everything we needed for a truly relaxing and comfortable holiday. The outdoor abri was amazing and this was where we enjoyed our meals every evening and soaked in the beautiful setting. I'm sure we will be back!
Incredible attention to detail - stunning villa!
The photos don't convey how beautiful La Bergerie is. Everything has been thought through by the owners who completely refurbished the villa a few years ago. Everywhere you look there are beautiful touches and interesting objets d'art. The pool area is gorgeous with plenty of sunloungers and stunning views. We loved the two shaded dining areas too - very stylish.
The village of La Garde Freinet has everything you could need from the fabulous butchers who will make food on request like paella and quiches to the fresh croissants every day from the two boulangeries and of course the twice-weekly market.
A very comfortable house with a mrvellous view
We were 7 in the house and we all loved our stay there. It was extremely well equipped and Celine, the house manager, looked after us very well. We are definitely going back next year.
My family and I stayed at La Bergerie in May 2013. The property is maintained at a very high standard with very comfortable bedrooms and lovely bathrooms. Great location and very quiet surroundings. Only approximately 20 minutes drive to the heart of St. Tropez. Loads of restaurants and bars to choose from. Our expectations were high and they were certainly exceeded. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and can't wait to go back!
