Guestbook comments from the owner
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.
