dining in the shade in south of france

While in the South of France this week, I visited some friends near the pretty town of La Garde Freinet and  whose home is up for sale.     They have lived here happily for many years, but it is now time to move to something slightly smaller and closer to the children.

Obviously I thought of you, and that you’d like to see the house and dream a little.

This beautiful home was built in the 19th century as a stone farm building  not far from a small river that today runs through the property. 


The house was initially only partly restored and used for many years as an occasional writer’s retreat, the ideal place to get away from it all and create.     Fifteen years ago they made further improvements and the house became  their full time home.

The property is tweny minutes from St Tropez, and within easy reach of a motorway giving access to airports.

Today the main house has three bedrooms and bathrooms, two spacious living rooms, an office library, a cosy kitchen  and an independent bedroom suite.

There are outbuildings that are partly restored including a double garage, a guest house and an orangery.     There is also a wine cellar and a stunning pool.

The grounds are extensive ensuring total privacy, they have olive trees and produce their own olive oil.   The garden also boasts citrus trees, roses, a vegetable garden with a greenhouse and a beautiful wisteria giving sweet smelling shade to the terrace outside the dining room.wisteria in flower over terrace of french house
