Perfect for savouring the Côte d’Azur’s art de vivre, this intimate collection of 11 brand-new houses enjoys a calm location close to the centre charming of La Garde-Freinet

Fortified since the 11th Century, La Garde-Freinet is set in the centre of the Massif des Maures and exudes old-world charm with its narrow streets with traditional names, Provençal farmhouses and village square which hosts a weekly market.  A village which beckons to be explored on foot, La Garde-Freinet has a charming pedestrianised street leading to the village square where you’ll find shops, bakeries and restaurants, many of which have quaint terraces for alfresco dining.

Offering the best of both worlds, these brand-new houses enjoy a peaceful plot close to the Sentier vers Fort-Freinet hiking area and a stone’s throw from the centre. Should you ever fancy a day by the beach, the coastal towns of Grimaud, Saint-Tropez and Sainte-Maxime are less than 30 minutes away by car.

The properties

One of the aspects that makes La Garde-Freinet so charming is its Provençal buildings and great care has been taken to ensure that these new-build houses will complement the local architecture. The plot is accessed via a wrought iron gate and the houses feature traditional ochre-coloured facades with Bormes stone details, iron Juliet balconies and charming wooden shutters.

Inside, the houses will be designed in a contemporary style with clean lines, a neutral colour scheme and a mix of sandstone and wide-slat parquet flooring. Spread over two floors, the houses offer two to four bedrooms, generous open-plan living spaces with equipped kitchens, terraces or balconies and large private gardens ranging from 90 sqm to 439 sqm - perfect for enjoying the French Riviera’s enviably sunny climate.

The properties are sold with a parking space and it is possible to add a jacuzzi or a small above-ground pool for an extra fee. Extra parking spaces can be purchased too.
