Set within a 75-acre award-winning vineyard, it is located in the commune of La Garde Freinet, enjoying stunning views of the Massif des Maures across the valley and vines. Your time here will be completely private - not another house in sight. Surrounded by national park, this charming property has been lovingly restored by the same family in an authentic Provençal style over the past 15 years. This lovely family home on a private estate is just 15 minutes from La Garde Freinet and 35 minutes from St Tropez. The house enjoys a secluded position but is nevertheless very accessible, via a private track used only by those renting the property and remains within easy reach of 2 local villages (10 and 15 minutes by car respectively). On the same estate our other property, Labastide, has seven bedrooms and sleeps 14. Also with its own private heated pool, why not rent both together to accommodate up to 26 people for that special once-in-a-lifetime holiday with friends and family? Contact us for a quote. Our nearest village is La Garde Freinet, this charming hilltop Provencal paradise brimming with local colour, a twice-weekly market, numerous independent cafes and shops, as well as regular cultural events. It is located in the lushly forested Massif des Maures, which forms the gateway to the Gulf of St Tropez. For us, La Garde-Freinet typifies Provence with its winding narrow streets, medieval houses and local market. But this is no sleepy village! Whilst it certainly enjoys the relaxed pace of life associated with this part of France, there’s always something going on here, boasting two bakeries / patisseries, two butchers’ shops, two grocery stores, a post office, school, antique shops and galleries, as well as shops selling locally made preserves and honey and boutiques selling clothing, jewellery and perfume. There are plenty of friendly cafes and bars to while away the afternoons and you will certainly not go hungry here, there are no fewer than 7 restaurants in the village as well as many more within a short drive. The nearby village of Grimaud (9 km) is slightly larger with its own charming sights and crumbling castle perched on top of the hillside, and of course the unmissable Saint-Tropez (just 21 km from the village) offers spectacular beaches, fabulous shopping and people spotting opportunities galore. La Garde Freinet has something for everybody, all year round, from regular art exhibitions to excellent walking tours and during the summer nature and craft workshops run by local Heritage Guides. Europe is celebrated each year in May with a lively festival and on the 14th July, the mayor offers all residents and visitors a friendly glass of local wine in the town square. In October visitors flock to the village for its unique and long-running Chestnut Festival, La Garde Freinet being surrounded by chestnut forest and so a major producer. The village dates back to the 8th century, when it was a fort built by the Saracens to launch their raids in the surrounding Provencal countryside. You can still explore the remains of this fort and the medieval ruins in the hills above the village. There are also several charming fountains and wash-houses to be seen dotted around the village. Aside from its chestnut production, cork was La Garde Freinet's main industry in the 19th century, its golden age. Although cork is no longer harvested here, visitors can still sit in the shade of a cork tree and relax with a glass of chilled local rosé listening to the crickets! In more recent times, La Garde-Freinet became a popular watering hole for international celebrities and its resident population remains surprisingly diverse. More
