About the property

Villa in La Garde Freinet, near St. Tropez, Cote d'Azur - Perfect Village Location, In The Hills Of Les Maures, Only 20 Mins From St Tropez And The Sea

Le Pre des Teilles is a haven of peace and tranquility set in acres of private gardens nestled in the hills behind St Tropez. It's the perfect 'escape from it all', the best way to spend a relaxing holiday with family or friends. Whether you're relaxing by the pool (with fully equipped pool kitchen and BBQ), dining al fresco under the wisteria covered terraces or enjoying the beaches and buzz of St Tropez, this is the place to be. The grounds are a paradise for adults and children alike with a tennis court, hot tub, tree house, trampoline, table tennis and plenty of space to roam and explore. Beyond the house through child secure gates, guests can enjoy the wild flower meadow and pond. The quaint medieval village of La Garde Freinet is a short stroll along a car free country lane where you can pick up your morning croissants, explore the local shops or enjoy the twice weekly provencal market. End your day with glass of rose in the hot tub and a BBQ on the terrace, or dinner in one of the village restaurants.

About The Owner

We are two families who jointly own this beautiful piece of French countryside. We bought the house in early 2008, and after undertaking extensive renovations, we have been enjoying the house and the village of La Garde Freinet with family and friends. Due to the restrictions of school holidays we cannot use it as much as we would like to, so it is available to rent through this website.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2008

Why The Owner chose La Garde-Freinet

Le Pre des Teilles is just a stunning place. When we are away from it we miss it. Quite simply it offers a secluded haven of beautiful gardens, beautiful views and a comfortable home away from home. Add this to all that the south of France has to offer in terms of climate, food, wine, sights, beaches and atmosphere and you pretty much tick all the boxes for a perfect holiday.

What makes this villa unique

With five small children between us the villa and its grounds are a children's paradise. We have also endeavoured to make the entire place as safe as possible, with a gated pool, pool alarm and all lower areas fenced off to stop small people wandering.

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and 2 grandchildren spent a week in this delightful villa in June. It is in a very countrified, attractive setting which suited us greatly. In June it is about half an hour to the beaches of St Tropez and after the hustle and bustle it is lovely to come back to the peace and quiet of La Garde Freinet. La Garde is a charming, typically French village. Not too touristy and everyone very friendly. The villa is fully equipped and the tennis court is fantastic. There is a treehouse and a trampoline and swings for the children so the holiday was ideal for them. The décor of the villa is stylish and there is nothing tacky about the place. The kitchen is very well equipped and has two large fridges. We found the check in and check out very easy and there was no hassle with anything. The lady that owns the villa is very easy to deal with as is Mike from the village who is the local contact. We found the price fair and reasonable to some other villas we have stayed in. This villa does what it says on the box and the only surprises are pleasant ones. There is an excellent guide/instruction book which guided us to some wonderful restaurants

15km to the beaches, about 20 mins by car to the Bay of St Tropez and St Maxime. Ramatuelle, L'Escalet delightful coves with turquoise pools to swim in. The world renowned Pamplonne (St Tropez) is 6 miles long beach with cafes and bars. Great walks on the coast to Cap Taillet and Cap Lardier.


We are equi-distant between Nice and Marseille airports, approx 1hr 15 mins drive. However our closest airport is Toulon/Hyeres which is about 45 minutes away. Ryanair fly to Toulon from London Stansted. We recommend hiring a car to travel from the airport to the villa as there are no direct transport links.


The village of La Garde Freinet is a 7min stroll. Historic Grimaud with it's hilltop castle and stunning views is 7km. St Tropez is 20km. Ste Maxime with beaches, Aqualand, shops and restaurants is 20km. Cogolin and La Foux have large supermarkets and are about 10km. To the north the whole of Provence awaits; the beautiful city of Aix en Provence is less than an hour drive and the breathtaking Gorge du Verdun is approx 1hr30min away.

Further Details:

La Garde Freinet itself is a picture postcard French hilltop village. It has plenty of local shops, including a small supermarket, two bakeries, two butchers, a bank and ATM, post office and a wide choice of restaurants and bars. It is a very lively place, especially in the summer when the small pedestrian streets and squares have a great buzz, especially during the twice weekly Provencal country markets. There is also a tourist office with a with all the information visitors could require.
