La Bastide (Main House)

Enjoy a quiet haven in the Provençal countryside in luxury and seclusion.

La Bastide nestles in an olive grove and is surrounded by a small vineyard. The land is watered by springs that also feed the fountain near the pool area.

Peace and serenity abound as you relax around the pool sipping a glass of the Verger d’Icard wine looking over its Provençal gardens (oleanders, cypresses, lavender…) with typical stone walls, a burbling fountain and cast iron garden furniture.

The pool of 10 by 5 meters is secured by an electric pool cover. Comfortable sun loungers and parasols are available on the pool terraces.

The main house has a master bedroom suite, two other bedrooms and a second bath/shower room. It has a large, fully equipped kitchen with an American fridge. The sitting room has an open fire place and large glass doors opening onto a wide terrace with a large table in the shade of a wisteria covered pergola.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nous avons adoré notre séjour à la Bastide. Nous avons passé 14 jours merveilleux de calme.

La maison est très agréable, une décoration simple et très raffinée et un excellent confort.

Nous avons beaucoup aimé la terrasse et la piscine dont nous avons largement profité.

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié Michel et son extreme gentillesse et discrétion.

Solveig aussi.

Juste peut être rajouter un vrai parasol de façon à ce que chaque maison ait le sien .

Nos voisins étaient adorables... Donc tout était parfait.

J'ai laissé le plus propre possible en faisant très attention à tout.

Vous me direz éventuellement quand faut il réserver pour l' année prochaine.

Très cordialement

Beautiful house, great location, highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in La Bastide for a week and had a fantastic time. Both the interior and exterior of the property were stunning, surrounded by beautiful gardens and views. Plenty to do in the surrounding area - beaches of Ste Maxime and St Tropez 40 mins away and we managed to do a day trip to the Calanques at Cassis as well. The nearby town of La Garde-Freinet had everything we needed and only 15 minutes away.

Thank you for a superb week, we hope to return in the future!

A fabulous hide away!

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous very high standed hide away. Fantastic for walks and country living with plenty of wounderful places to visit. Far enought but easy to get to St Tropez if you feel like a bit of high life. I highly recommend it for those who want a get away to have lovely peace and quiet with plenty of nature.

It was wonderful to return to La Bastide, the setting is idyllic, the house immaculate and comfortable with everything you could want from a home away from home. The hosts were very attentive and gave us a lovely welcome pack including some of their own delicious wine :-). A perfect retreat in Provence and needless to say, the kids loved the pool.

Enclave authentique dans une région touristique

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons adoré nos vacances dans ce domaine enchanteur à quelques encablures du "rush" touristique de la côte d'Azur.

Le niveau des prestations est excellent et la propriété est encore mieux que sur les photos ...

Notre seul regret est de n'avoir pas pu réserver plus d'une semaine pour cause de non disponibilité. Nous garderons cette très bonne adresse pour nos prochaines vacances dans la région... A très bientôt !

Hiking on the 250 acres estate of vineyards, olive groves, chestnut and cork oak trees with breathtaking views over the hills and valleys of the Mediterranean hinterland.

Horse riding or quad biking in the Massif des Maures.

La Garde Freinet hosts a variety of good restaurants and shops with 2 market days per week. There are numerous golf courses and horse riding nearby and a huge variety of beaches to visit along the Cote d'Azur coast, the nearest being a 30 minute drive. There are wonderful medieval and rustic villages, historic buildings to explore and many vineyards to visit for wine tasting.
