When we returned from working in the Far East in 2001, we knew we had to have a base with guaranteed sunshine to keep our spirits up. We fell in love with the Bastide de Prenn the moment we saw it BUT it did need work and we feel we have renovated it lovingly over the years to make it the special place it is today. Our children have been coming here with us all this time and now grown up they still join us when we are here at every available opportunity. We love the peace, tranquillity, silence of the valley but then you have the opportunity to pop into La Garde Freinet for a lovely coffee, aperitif or dinner with a great selection of restaurants to choose from ....and then there is always further afield...St. Tropez, Grimaud, St. Maxime. Plan de la Tour....
When we bought and renovated the house we had 4 small children and wanted to make it as safe and child friendly as possible.
We just love this house - it makes us relax the moment we walk in the door.
