Set in beautiful mature gardens, the villa is everything that we imagine when we think of an old Provencal house. Close to the entrance to the charming village of La Garde Freinet.
Dating back to the 18th century, the villa has retained its calm, utterly French atmosphere, thanks to a sympathetic restoration. Built of stone, it is set in 6000 square metres of land and overlooks the hills and chestnut orchards of the Massif des Maures. Green lawns, mature trees, a walled pool area and numerous terraces provide the perfect setting for an idyllic summer holiday (the walled swimming pool is located below the house, can effectively be gated when not in use and it also benefits from a new heating system).
With solid stone walls ensuring that the house remains cool even in the height of summer, the villa has all that we expect of rural France – a vast and practical kitchen, a splendid open fireplace in the living room and pretty bedrooms. The ground floor living areas open on to a charming outdoor dining area, with a large table set in the shade of the trees, looking as if it is about to star in one of those Merchant-Ivory family sagas.
The village of La Garde Freinet borders the property, and is a delight, with its great selection of restaurants, its comprehensive range of useful shops, and its twice-weekly market. From time to time there are also fairs and festivals, art exhibitions and concerts. For more sophisticated shopping and amusement, St Tropez is 19 kilometres away.
