We once again had a wonderful time, quietly enjoying the house and its setting. The merits of the house were as before... a perfect base for spending time in this corner of France. We easily slipped back into our routines of the previous year, a delightful mix of quiet and totally relaxed domesticity (reading, cooking, eating, drinking, snoozing, sunning ourselves, talking...) with hiking and other outings. Just the two of us, we again mostly occupied the upper two floors. However, with thoughts that we might be able to return next year with Louise's parents and perhaps other family, we were able to understand the potential offered by the ground floor: two cosy bedrooms with their own bathroom, with direct access to the street or upstairs to the living, dining and kitchen facilities on the second floor. It seems to us that this, together with the third floor bedroom etc. provides for an ideal combination of togetherness and privacy. Our appreciation of the village was also further enhanced. As the owners describe, it is extremely well equipped in terms of stores and services, including two grocers (the Proxi with a wonderful selection of cheeses and other delights), two butchers, two patisseries, two hairdressers (Louise swears by Pascale for cutting her hair...) and a twice weekly market. And then there's: the drug store; a bank with ATM; a specialist outlet selling honey, jams, mustards and the like; a newsagent that carries UK papers and the NY Times; an interesting and very reasonably priced women's clothing store; and an amazingly well-stocked bookstore... mostly French volumes, but also a very good selection of English ones. La Garde Freinet also has a mix of restaurants and cafes, none outstanding, although we enjoyed morning coffee (albeit having to request a double shot; we like it strong!) and the associated socializing at the Cafe du Soleil. (For really good food, head down the road to Grimaud and Les Santons with its Michelin star.) Related to that, by the way, the 'operating instructions' for the house warrant special praise. Yes, reassuring information re the WiFi, kitchen appliances, BBQ and the like, but also well-considered advice about the region... restaurants, beaches, golf courses, wineries, sightseeing, etc.. So another wonderful stay. As mentioned above, we're already pondering next year...
