About JACQUELINE NICHOLSON

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.

Lovely, modern, spacious villa, great for families. Well equipped & well located to explore Provence

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 brilliant weeks here - the villa is well equipped with a lovely open plan living space and good bedrooms. The pool is fantastic and kept the boys entertained for hours. Great location - 25 mins from the beach and harbours on the south coast, but with lots of lovely pretty villages and vineyards nearby. Plenty to do - walking, canoeing, swimming, wandering around local towns etc and lots of info about the local area in the villa. Only negative thing to note is that the road is very windy and quite busy so you cannot really safely walk into the local town - you need to drive. Also as we were here for 2 weeks it would have been nice to have a mid-holiday clean / linen change, but this doesn't detract from this lovely place overall. Jackie was very helpful with tips and access information too.

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.
