About Ken Maynard

Les Restanques is owned by Ken and Anna and enjoyed by our three adult sons as well as many family and friends over the years. Picture is my god daughter Macy enjoying the pool Summer 2014.

Ken Maynard purchased this villa in 2006

Why Ken Maynard chose La Garde-Freinet

Les Restanques is a large family house, unusually built in golden stone from northern provence.The Villa is luxuriously appointed but very much home from home. It's tranquil location, but accessibility to the beautiful provencal village Le Garde Freinet or to the glitz and glamour of St Tropez made it an obvious choice for us. The Maures Mountains and the proximity to other areas of Provence and even alpine skiing also provides a lot to see and do.The beautiful countryside where development has been tightly controlled makes it very special.

What makes this villa unique

Les Restanques looks very much provencal, but the exterior belies the modern, state of the art facilities and home comforts it offers and that we have come to expect. Why holiday in a property that doesn't live up to the standards you have at home. Beautiful weather, a plethora of superb restaurants to suit all price ranges, amazing beaches, night-life, golf, walking, the list goes in. We've yet to go to an area that beats it!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lady Carol Aldridge: Fantastic villa with stunning view and the most wonderful village nearby *****

Caroline Ashwell: Had the most amazing time here - perfect location. The surrounding area and the drives to the different villages are spectacular. Would highly recommend this villa, the interior and exterior are pure luxury. We hope to return next year. (and rebooked). *****

Amanda Smithdale: Only madness would prevent you from booking!! *****

Luxury villa with outstanding facilities, spacious accommodation for large groups and amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

I organised a family celebration for 14. From the minute we arrived, everyone said how much the villa had exceeded their expectations, how they had never stayed anywhere so amazing before and from this point things got even better. The local village of la Garde Freinet offers everything you could want (markets, boulangeries, bars, restaurants), Grimaud nearby also beautiful for wandering around, and the beaches, horse riding etc etc are all within easy reach.

The villa is finished to a very high specification and Ken and Emma were both attentive in the lead up to the holiday and during answering any queries we had on minor issues. This villa really is amazing on all fronts. It is peaceful, the climate is perfect and the owners great. Thank you so much - we had a great week.

Fantastic Villa, exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a luxurious break away from it all, then this is the place for you. Nestled on the side of a mountain overlooking St. Tropez the views are breathtaking, totally secluded but not far from the local village and within easy reach of places where you can rub shoulders with the rich and famous while partying the night away. Personally I found it hard to drag myself away from the luxury of the villa. The choice is yours.

The villa is stunning. A myriad of beautiful elegant rooms in a perfect setting, equipped with everything you could ever need (and more), the kitchen was to die for. Nothing has been overlooked.

If you want to go out & explore, the information manual tells you all about the surrounding areas and the best places to go. If you need more information the owners are happy to help.

I can't recommend Les Restanques highly enough, I didn't want to leave & I can't wait to return next year.

What a fantastic villa with incredible views!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday in late June early July 2015 and the villa was beyond our expectations from first impressions on arrival through to departure. Good range of bedrooms with en-suites, lovely kitchen/dining area open to the outside covered patios and great pool/games area for all ages. And the views are to die for!! Very clean, the local villa staff were great and the owners always available to help with any difficulties and advice. All in all a lovely place to stay
