About the property

Comfortable, spacious villa with large pool near La Garde Freinet, Var, Provence, ideal for families and groups

Bello Visto is a large, comfortable villa, ideal for families or groups of friends. Inside there is a large well equipped kitchen with plenty of space to prepare family meals or dinner parties for friends. The living area is open plan with a dining table and plenty of sofas for relaxing after a day in the sun. A good mix of bedrooms provides accommodation for most family or group configurations. Outside there are balconies and terraces (with and without shade) for lounging or dining al fresco. And of course there is the 12 x 6m swimming pool to help you cool off. The house sits in private wooded gardens. It is walking distance from the village which has a twice-weekly market. Well-behaved dogs are welcome by arrangement and will love it here.

About Catriona Wright

The villa has been in our family for over 40 years and many children have learnt to swim in the pool. It is the ideal location for a relaxing, fun holiday in a peaceful situation, interspersed with sight seeing adventures to the coast and surrounding villages. Let us know if you need more information about the house or area. We hope you have a great holiday!

Catriona Wright purchased this villa in 1970

Why Catriona Wright chose La Garde-Freinet

The villa is comfortably furnished so will feel like home-from-home. It is large enough that everyone can find their own space, and a place to relax and unwind. The pool provides a focal point of fun. Lunches by the pool, eating cheese, pate, meat and salad bought from the local market, and drinking the delicious rose wine from the local Les Vignerons de Grimaud, is heaven.

What makes this villa unique

The large well equipped kitchen is ideal for preparing delicious dinners from locally bought products, which can then be eaten on the front balcony with a stunning view out towards St Tropez Bay.

And of course burning off some energy in the large 12 x 6m private pool, or simply cooling down while floating around on an inflatable.

Large, secluded clean / comfortable Villa, lovely views within walking distance of very nice Village

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this large, well located Villa. Peaceful location yet within easy reach of the desirable village of La Garde Freinet.

Very clean and comfortable with lovely views enjoyed by all the main rooms in the property. Light and airy living space which opened up with patio doors on to a good terrace area.

Great size swimming pool set a few yards away from the main Villa with equally good views and sunbathing terrace.

Very nice Villa in a tranquil location to enjoy this stunning area but within easy reach of all amenities and attractions....Highly Recommended!

Comfortable and great value stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Bello Visto every summer since 2012. We go with our children, now aged 14 and 12 and other friends and family. When I first booked, back in 2011 I had a very friendly and helpful conversation with Robin Tickell, one of the owners about what to expect here. It is not high end luxury....and that is why we love it. It is a family house, able to withstand the to-ing and fro-ing from the pool without a worry about cream carpets and precious antiques. The kitchen is a cook's kitchen. There is everything you could want here - even a salad spinner! The reasons you should spend time at Bello Visto are firstly the amazing pool. Two metres deep at the deep end - we have held diving competitions (fiercely contested among the grown -ups!). Secondly the proximity to Pampelonne beach and thirdly the stupendous view from the terrace as the sun goes down over St Tropez and you see the blinking of the Cap Camerat Lighthouse. I cannot recommend it highly enough as a very reasonably priced villa in this staggeringly expensive region. We love Bello - it feels like part of our family too, now.

Family stay

  • 4 of 5

As a family of 10 adults and 2 small children we visited the house; it was a lovely stay!

It was enough space, and the pool area was great.

Very good service from house-keeping and pool-man; contact excellent with sms.

There is a wide choice of beaches including those at Port Grimaud, less than half an hour’s drive from the villa. Some are busy and have water sports, bars, restaurants and beach showers. Others, especially out of the main season, are quiet and unspoilt. Most beaches are safe for children with gently sloping sands and lifeguards on duty.

The nearest airports are Toulon (Hyeres) (50 kms. 45 mins),Nice (100 kms. 90 mins drive), Marseille (110 kms. 90 mins). The villa is a 20 minute journey from the Nice – Marseilles motorway (A8). A car is recommended but airport transfers and other trips can be arranged. It is also possible to come by train (TGV).

It is less than 1 km to Garde Freinet village, which has shops, post office, restaurants etc. St Tropez, St Maxime, Port Grimaud, Grimaud, Cogolin, and Gassin are all within a short drive. The fabulous Gorge du Verdun is one and half hours drive from the house.

La Garde Freinet has good local shops including mini-markets, bakers, butchers, hairdressers, pharmacy, newsagent, clothing and jewellery, and local craft shops. There is a post office, a bank with ATM, bars, restaurants and pizzerias, The village has 2 doctors and a dentist. The twice weekly local market is very popular. There are many walks in the area and other activities available nearby include riding, golf, clay shooting. There is a good tourist office in the village with information in several languages.
