About the property

4 spacious ensuite bedrooms above Grimaud

The house stands half way between Grimaud and La Garde Freinet, and is down a valley with lovely views over vineyards, just 2 minutes down a private road. With easy access to St Tropez and the delights of the coast it is possible to avoid the crowded main roads to reach the beaches.

The bedrooms are all spacious and have air conditioning. the three largest rooms have baths and the smaller one a shower. The doors lead onto a lawn and down a few steps is the large salt water swimming pool which has a hard cover. The upper terrace is fenced off and has a lockable gate down to the pool. Very safe for small children. Outside furniture is good quality teak with comfortable cushions and there is a large BBQ. Shade is provided by parasols and the mulberry trees on the lawn. Our house manager will greet you and sort out any problems or questions helping to make your stay a real holiday. Baby sitting by arrangement with our cleaning lady who will change sheets and clean once a week.

About Prue Hornby

. I live in a very peaceful farmhouse in the cotswolds. I am a retired management consultant before that I did up quite a few houses. Doing the house in France was great fun as I combed the local bric a brac markets to find interesting things for the house. We used to have a boat in Port Grimaud but gave it up after we bought the house as it is so lovely there we couldn't move our guests for a trip to sea. They preferred lounging by the pool! I spend quite a lot of time down there as I love the whole ambience of the place. It is not just a holiday let - it's my home.

Prue Hornby purchased this farmhouse in 2009

Why Prue Hornby chose La Garde-Freinet

My late husband and I searched for 6 years to find a unique property that had great views and was in the countryside but near to all the facilities of the coast. The minute we saw the house we fell in love with it's character and situation.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The house offers peacefulness in a great setting. It is a converted silk barn and is therefore very old but with all the modern comforts.

Few houses for rent have the character of this one.

Guestbook comments from the manager
