Tucked away in the medieval village of La Garde Freinet, Villa la Colline is a peaceful sanctuary in the heart of the Cote d’Azur.

About the Property

Right in the heart of the Cote d'Azur with the stylish St Tropez only a short drive away, the small town of La Garde-Freinet feels unperturbed by the outside world. Nestled within this Provençal village is Villa la Colline, a farmhouse painted cream with olive green doorways.

Tuck into local cuisine by the outdoor dining area, which sits beneath a canopy of green and overlooks the swimming pool. Then, have a cup of tea by the garden, on the wrought-iron bench, and marvel at the views of the medieval village of La Garde-Freneit below.

Inside modern country pervades: a living space furnished with grey sofas, chequered cushions, a plankton wood coffee table, white lamps and silver floor lanterns. Through an alcove is the dining room, which sits eight and next to it is the kitchen, painted in a pavilion grey and white motif. The bedrooms are sizable: all whitewashed with ivory headboards and colour-coordinated upholstered benches.

Outside this luxury home in the Cote d'Azur, picturesque roads winding through a forest of chestnut groves and cork oaks lead to La Garde-Freinet. The medieval town has preserved its old world charm with field stone houses, traditional street names and a village square surrounded by quaint restaurants. Pop into one of the galleries owned by local village artists. Many artists and writers have fallen in love with the town's understated beauty and have made it their home.

Further afield is the world's most famous port, St Tropez. Beyond the hustle and bustle of Vieux Port are winding lanes of pastel houses, an open-air market on Place des Lices and the superb Pampelonne beach on the Riviera. This luxury villa in the Cote d'Azur is everything a hideaway should be.

Cote d’Azur

La Garde Freinet is the sort of picturesque Provençal town you read about in novels, but is hard to find in real life. Yet here it is, in the heart of the Maures Mountains, only a few kilometres from the French Riviera.

The pretty town has two distinctive halves. The older part is clustered around the 16th-century church, with narrow streets, sometimes carved through solid rock. The "newer" part of town has wider streets and 19th-century houses.
