About the Owner

I live in England with my family. For the past ten years we have spent family holidays renting villas with friends and family in the South of France and have absolutely fallen in love with the area. We'd always dreamed of having our home in the Cote d'Azur one day, and when the opportunity arose last year we jumped at the chance.

The villa has a great feel and is a wonderful social space, it is peaceful and secluded, but only a short drive to the buzz of St Tropez and the coast. La Garde Freinet is delightful, with its typically french village ambiance, we feel lucky to have stumbled accross such a gem.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Having just spent a week at Villa Vinci from 25th October 2014 with my wife and daughter I can honestly say it was without doubt the most peaceful and enjoyable stays in a holiday property I have ever had. The property is beautiful and set in its own grounds and with beautiful views of the nearby town of La Garde-Freinet. The accommodation is truly exceptional and a credit to its owners with regard to its decor. Its also within easy access of St Tropez, Port Grimaud( Little Venice) and Saint Maxime as well as lots of other great destinations. A truly stunning area of the South of France and a week that we shall never forgot.

A real highlight was a visit to Cape Taillat where the famous beach scenes from the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was filmed which was also within a 20 minute drive.

Lovely setting for a relaxing family holiday, like having your own place

  • 4 of 5

South facing, lots of sun, with beautiful view of La Garde Freinet which is a short drive away, a charming relaxing small town without the noise, traffic etc of St Tropez. Perfect layout for enjoying an easy holiday by the pool. Well located, well equipped and well maintained villa. Great barbecue area.Thoughtfully provided handbook/ local info. Efficient, conscientious and courteous support staff. Would not be suitable for small mobile children who can't swim due to close proximity of pool to house.
