Guestbook comments from the owner

"We stayed in the apartment at the end of September 2012. Les Residences is set in a charming French village high above the French Riviera. The apartment block is set in beautiful grounds with a swimming pool and tennis court available for the use of guests, and a secure car park. In the summer it is easy to see how you could remain happily in the grounds all day enjoying the pool and gardens. The apartment itself is cosy and comfortable with a kitchen - dining area and living area, and a bedroom and bathroom upstairs on the mezzanine. The owner goes to great lengths to ensure a positive experience supplying a range of CD's, DVD's, books and sports equipment to make guests' stay as pleasant as possible. We would happily return in future to explore the areas we did not have time to visit and to make more use of the facilities and the excellent local cycling and mountain biking opportunities."

Two fantastic weeks on our second visit

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second visit to the property, having had such a great time three years ago. We wanted to stay for two weeks to make the most of the area and all it has to offer. The apartment is close to the town centre making it very easy to top up on fresh bread and other food and an evening drink.
The roads around the area are perfect for cycling, with some fantastic climbing, descents and quiet roads both inland and along the coast.
We also regularly visited the beaches around the area, but always got back early to enjoy the pool and tennis court/
I would certainly like to visit again as there is always more cycling to do and enjoyment to be had.

A fabulous location for a true recovery

  • 5 out of 5
My friend and I were more than enthusiastic about the beautiful garden,the silence, the perfect location near the centre of the dreamy village with its walking distance to all restaurants , the green market and small shops . The apartment was clean and well provided. My friend and I enjoyed every minute of our stay which was definitely too short. We would always come back and highly recommend it.

A quaint apartment with a pool near St Tropez

  • 5 out of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Les Residences in La Garde Freinet. We have two small children aged 6 and 9 and the apartment is perfectly sized for us...we loved the pool area and tennis court and gardens with BBQ area, all of which is maintained to a high standard. The apartment is equipped with a full kitchen, lounge area with TV/DVD, upstairs is the bedroom and a mezzanine area where children can sleep. The bathroom is clean and has a decent shower, particularly important after a trip to the beach! The apartment has gated off street parking which seems to be essential.
The surrounding area is packed with things to do, from the beautiful French villages nearby, sandy beaches, museums and for the more adventurous big water parks and a large fun fair in St Tropez for the children....
Further afield, the Gorges du Verdon and Camargue are must see and are are about 2 hours or so away.
We would highly recommend this apartment for families with small children and couples wanting to explore the area.

Far from the Madding Crowd !

  • 5 out of 5
We were very pleased with our stay at Les Residences. The apartment was perfect for the two of us and I really enjoyed the pool and garden - often had lunch or dinner at the tables under the trees. La Garde Freinet was an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area - and a real pleasure to return to in the evening, far from the Madding Crowd! (Tip : Do not drive to St Tropez in the season - we took the Little train from Grimaud to Port Grimaud, then boat to St Tropez - much more relaxing than sitting in traffic and the driver actually gets to see the beautiful scenery!) We found the locals very friendly and made a number of new friends. Had a great night at the Bastille celebrations an the 13th (eve prior to Bastille Day). Lots of good places to eat in the village and some interesting little shops - specially liked Chez Danuta Brocante in Rue St Jaques and had many a cafe and vin at Chez Muriel ! We will certainly be recommending Les Residences to others and hope to return in the future.

A lovely week had by all

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed at Les Residences for a week in mid August of this year with my wife and 3 year old son. We had a wonderful week and found the apartment perfectly placed for accessing the wonderful beaches in the St. Tropez area. The apartment was well kitted out for all of our needs
and the pool and gardens were particularly lovely to relax in.

I love road cycling and I was kindly provided with some routes by the owner of the apartment. The routes were fantastic and straight from the apartment, i.e. no annoying long treks to get to the good roads.

We took our tennis rackets but never got to use the apartment's tennis court due to the fact that we were always busy with plenty to do. La Garde-Freinet was a lovely village and had all of the essentials to keep us happy. A nice escape from the hustle and bustle of St. Tropez centre. In the evening there is a great atmosphere in the central square with lots going on, as people enjoy themselves dining late into the night.

Overall it was a fantastic week and the apartment would suit many people, i.e. couples of all ages or young family wanting a beach holiday or friends wanting a great base for cycling etc etc

Les Residences is just a short walk from the centre of the village of La Garde Freinet which offers a number of restaurants catering to all budgets, a couple of bars, two bakers, butchers, two small supermarkets. There is a village market on Sundays and Wednesdays offering a wide range of fresh produce from the surrounding area.

The countryside around La Garde Freinet, Le Massif des Maures, is ideal for exploring the local area on foot or by bike or, just driving through the local villages. A short distance to the south are beautiful beaches and the glamour of St Tropez. Inland to the north the historic villages of Provence are dotted around the countryside and the fantastic Gorges du Verdon, Monaco and Italy are close enough to be visited on a day out.
