Large Villa with 12x6m Pool and Stunning Views



Updated: 02-Nov-2016
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 the Owner

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!

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!

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.

From the Owner

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.
