About the property

Also available 6830912, can be hired separately or together, sleeping up to 16

Maison Guy was built in 2003. It is a spacious, family home designed for holiday life, set on a hillside with far reaching views. Our well-appointed single storey villa has 4 generous double bedrooms but can comfortably sleep up to 11 people when using the mezzanine. Spacious terraces for outdoor dining and a large private pool (11m by 5m), mean that you will soon slip into the lazy routine of a French summer. For a change of pace, it is only a 5 minute drive to the village restaurants and shops and the bustling coast is easily within reach.

Also available, Idyllic Provencal Cottage (property No: 6830912) which sleeps 6. The two houses are each within their own grounds with private swimming pools and can be hired separately or together, sleeping up to 16 people.

Cabanon Chadwick was fully renovated and sympathetically extended in traditional Provencal style in 2002. As the name suggests this stone-built property was once a shepherd's cottage and is set amidst beautiful cork oaks and olive groves.

Maison Guy is laid out in 3 sections with a double and twin bedroom plus bathroom with shower to each side of the living area. This provides a degree of privacy and independence even if sharing with good friends...

There is also a third shower room and WC, located just inside the entrance.

Fully equipped kitchen with fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine and a small eating area.

An archway leads from the kitchen into the airy and spacious galleried living area.

This 13m long room has separate sitting and dining areas and is tastefully yet simply furnished - sofas are set around a feature fireplace, there is a stereo and iPod docking station plus a selection of books and games. At one end there are steps up to the mezzanine offering a further 3 single beds plus an ideal area for children to play, TV and video/DVD player.

3 sets of French doors open out onto a large covered terrace which runs the length of the property above the pool and includes another dining area

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to write to say thank you so much for allowing to stay in your wonderful home in Provence last week.We have had a superb holiday and we kept saying how well appointed your house is. The house was just right for two families and the children enjoyed the table tennis and the pool. It is located in a perfect position away from the busy coast, but it is close enough for visits to the beach etc. We were also very taken with La Garde Freinet, the children cycled in to the village for the croissants etc every morning and we enjoyed a few meals out in the evening and had some excellent food.

I spent a week at Maison Guy with my three daughters and son-in-law. What a stunning property! Fabulous facilities in a property that is in a wonderfully secluded and idyllic location, yet near to the village when essentials are required. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a peaceful vacation but with major towns and the coast nearby if preferred.

Happy days in La Garde Freinet

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in both Maison Guy & Cabanon Chadwick every year over the past 7 summers and both are now very much a home away from home. We love the laid back private relaxation that both properties offer and have shared them both with family and friends, who have been similarly enthusiastic about their stays there. The layouts of both properties are great, easy to clean and have all the facilities you could want. The view back down the valley from Maison Guy is really spectacular in the evening, please don't let the trees grow too big to block this out.

The properties and pools are well maintained and if you should have a problem, the local team are quickly on hand to sort it out (the pool at Maison Guy turned green overnight in late May one year due to a sudden drop of yellow pollen from the cork oaks, Phillipa & Becky were quickly on hand to get it sorted and normal service resumed the following day).

La Garde Freinet itself is a delight with many interesting restaurants, shops and a great market on Sunday and Wednesday. It is the perfect spot away from the hubbub of the Cotes D'Azure if your preference is to get away for relaxation. There are good local beaches which are uncrowded, even in high summer, if you are prepared to explore and walk a bit. Our favorite is L'escalet about 35 minutes away.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend either property to anyone, our only reluctance being that recommendations lead to them becoming harder to book when we want to go!

If we had one criticism, it would be about the size of the tree over the pool at Cabanon, which had got very big by last year and put the pool in shade for a good part of the day. If you want a shady spot, the covered terrace with its amazing concrete sculptural table is just the perfect spot to waste the day with a newspaper or book and several bottles of the perfectly chilled local rose!

Every year we say we will try somewhere different, but we just get drawn back to where we know we will have a chilled out relaxing holiday in great properties in a stunning location.

Special interest holidays:

The Massif des Maures offer some superb cycling, we do have some bikes to hire at Maison Guy.


The Bay of St Tropez and its beaches are 12 km away.

The famous "Pamplonne" beach of St Tropez is approximately 30 minutes drive away.


There are always those adventurous souls who take an over-night ferry to Le Havre and arrive in the South of France within a day. We would suggest however, that if you want to drive, a morning crossing to Northern France, the motorway via Reims and an overnight stop (in Burgundy) makes for a pleasant journey. Alternatively, La Garde-Freinet is an easy 1½ hour’s drive from both Marseilles and Nice airports and 45 minutes from Toulon airport. Car hire is recommended.


Our homes are just a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk from the market village of La Garde-Freinet.

Grimaud 10 kms: St Tropez 15 kms: Ste Maxime 20 kms:

Further Details:

La Garde Freinet is a medieval town in the centre of the Massif des Maures. Picturesque roads winding through forests of cork oaks and chestnut groves reach the village where restaurants and shops surround the main square. We enjoy nothing more than to walk into the village in the morning to collect the freshly baked bread and croissants and browse around the market on a Wednesday and Sunday.

There are many places of interest to visit. Below are a few suggestions, but the possibilities are endless: Grimaud: an appealing village, flowered, winding streets lead to a feudal castle 15 mins. St Tropez: a lovely old port, home to the rich and famous 30 mins. Ste Maxime: less glamorous than St Tropez but equally great for soaking up the atmosphere 25 mins. Aix-en-Provence: reputedly the prettiest town in France 1 hour. St Paul de Vence: an old hilltop village 45 mins. Aquatica, Frejus: largest water fun park on the Côte d’Azur 45 mins). Monaco: the glitzy principality famous for the Grand prix and casino 2 hours. Gorges du Verdon: deepest gorges in Europe 2 hours.

Local activities around La Garde-Freinet and on the Côte d’Azur include: Hiking, Mountain biking, Boules, Tennis, Golf, Windsurfing, Water skiing, Paragliding, Sailing and Horse riding.
