Only available during the month of AUGUST our comfortably furnished home lies at the end of the beautiful St Clément valley, a 5 minute drive or pretty 20 minute walk from the ancient hilltop stronghold of La Garde Freinet. Approached through olive groves & vineyards & surrounded by chestnut & pine forests it offers peace & tranquility yet is only a short distance from the stunning beaches & stylish glamour of the Golfe de St Tropez. The village, set in the heart of the Massif des Maures with its breathtaking scenery & wonderful climate, provides good local shops, restaurants, bars & a twice weekly market selling delicious local produce. Our secluded pool is fully tiled and surrounded by a wide, sunny “plage” – perfect for soaking up the sun! There are shady areas too in which to relax with a glass of wine and a good book, a hammock for that afternoon snooze, a vine covered terrace for al fresco dining + 3 acres of fields & woodland to explore. For those seeking a more active holiday, golf, tennis, sailing, windsurfing, & horse riding can be found close by.
HOLIDAYING WITH YOUR FAMILY AT LA VEILLE FERME:
***ALTHOUGH CHILDREN ARE VERY WELCOME PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT THERE ARE A NUMBER OF
STEEP AND UNGUARDED STEPS BOTH INSIDE THE HOUSE AND AROUND THE GARDEN SO THE PROPERTY
IS PROBABLY MORE SUITED TO OLDER CHILDREN OR BABIES.***
We stayed at this excellent farm house for two weeks at the end of August 2012. It is situated in a beautiful, quiet location with lovely views. The farmhouse which is decorated to a very high and tasteful standard has everything you could possibly need, with comfortable living inside, an excellent kitchen and several balconies to relax and enjoy the view. There is a great eating and sitting area to the front of the house shaded by a huge vine. Outside there are lots of quiet places to sit and relax and the pool, surrounded by lavender and rosemary, is wonderful with plenty of sun loungers and a shady area if you want to be out of the sun. Christine is a brilliant hostess, very helpful and quick to respond if you need anything, yet discrete.
La Garde-Freinet is a pretty French village with a market. It is very friendly with good restaurants, a very nice bar to sit and watch the world go by and a useful Spar shop.
We would thoroughly recommend this quality villa to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday.
Close to the beautiful beaches of the Golfe de St Tropez and set in the breathtaking scenery of the Massif des Maures, La Garde Freinet is well placed for inland trips to ancient towns such as Aix en Provence, Avignon and Arles. A day spent in the dramatic Gorges du Verdon or boating on the nearby startling blue Lac St Croix is a must. Nearer home while away a morning in the pretty villages of Ramatuelle or Gassin, with its stunning coastal views. Countless local châteaux offer combined wine tastings and art exhibitions and during July and August many stage open air jazz concerts. Take a boat trip from Ste Maxime to St Tropez, each have colourful weekly markets where great bargains are to be had. Why not spend a day in Nice with its captivating old town, or a little further along the coast visit the famous principality of Monaco. On Sunday mornings enjoy browsing the weekly 'puce' market held outside picturesque Grimaud with its ruined castle.
