Home away from home.
We ( my husband, 2 daughters - ages 10 and 7 and myself) absolutely LOVED this house. It was even better than we imagined it would be. The house was very comfortable and very well equipped ( we own restaurants and like to cook and the kitchen had EVERYTHING needed to cook with). I can't think of a single thing that we needed through out the house that wasn't there already. We rent homes in different parts of Europe every year and this home is at the very top of our list. The wild peacocks roaming the yard for the week were a very unexpected surprise for us! They became the childrens new friends for the week. The heated pool was fantastic! We were looking to rent a house that had the old Provence look and feel,that was private, clean, had a pool ( this one was even heated), and a good location. This home was everything we were looking for. The location is great. It is very easy and quick to drive to the beaches. St. Tropez is only about a 20 minute drive or the small village of La Garde Freinet is a 5 minute drive from the house. The house is in a good area to do some walking hiking ( around the house you'll walk through olive trees, chestnut trees, vineyards, wild rosemary, wild lavender and mint growing all around).The view from the house is amazing, you can see the sea, St.Tropez and surrounding mountains. Patrick, the owner of this house was a pleasure renting from. If we had any questions he was happy to help and very prompt at getting back to us. Before we left for our trip he even sent us an e-mail informing us about the yearly Chestnut Festival that would be happening in La Garde Freinet while we were there. You can tell he really loves this house and wants people to feel welcome when they are staying in his home. We hope to go back one day soon and would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxed vacation in the south of France. Sincerely, Jody Reilly, Connecticut, USA
