St Tropez elegant country villa – Perched on a hilltop with magnificent, sweeping views over unspoilt countryside all the way to the Gulf of St Tropez, La Chouette is a beautiful, classic villa in a secluded setting close to the lively village of La Garde Freinet.
Tastefully furnished with neutral colours, La Chouette has a light and airy feel, offering the perfect space to unwind in this tranquil setting. The ground floor layout is mostly open plan with easy access to a large terrace and pergola with far reaching views; an inspiring setting for outdoor dining. Stone steps lead to the large pool on a lower terrace, with the benefit of a pool house and summer kitchen. The surrounding woodland offers a chance for interesting walks.
Less than 5 miles away from La Chouette is the delightful village of La Garde Freinet, with narrow, winding lanes and pretty, old-fashioned houses, excellent restaurants and renowned weekly markets where you can pick up that perfect souvenir of your holiday. For a complete change of scenery you must visit Ste Maxime and St Tropez, pearls of the French Riviera, and fall under the spell of the glitterati lifestyle. Splendid sandy beaches, luxury yachts, pavement cafes, trendy restaurants and animated nightlife are all within easy reach of your elegant country villa in Southern France.
This is really a fantastic country villa with amazing views and in a very rural location: the perfect base for somebody who wants to enjoy complete privacy. La Garde Freinet, 5 miles away, is a lively village full of fun with several restaurants, some with evening live music such as La Carnotzet in Place du Marché and La Faucado on the main road, just to mention a few. There are wonderful walks up to the famous Cross above the village with panoramic views of the mountains and to the sea.
