Item:322407485959The house is a 4-storey, 19th century, terraced house in the heart of a stunning Provencal village.

The house is tiled throughout with original Provencal tiles, has a beautiful spiral staircase with original wrought iron bannister and shutters at all the windows. The ceilings have original wooden beams which add to the character of this fabulous old house. The kitchen area has a small breakfast bar, under-counter fridge, dishwasher, electric ceramic hob, white ceramic butler sink and base and wall storage units. Next to the kitchen is an eating area with table and chairs. The lounge has two large Ikea sofas (one of which is a double sofa-bed) with removable, washable covers, a coffee table, side tables, shelving, television (equipped with UK channels) and three pretty alcoves. There is a window with shutters and a ceiling fan. The first floor double bedroom has a double bed, large wardrobe, dressing table, bedside tables, built-in wardrobe, mirrors, a window with shutters and a curtain rail and a ceiling fan. The recently re-furbished en suite has a walk-in shower with glass sliding door and a wash-hand basin with storage unit. The second floor double bedroom has twin single beds, a large wardrobe, a large chest of drawers, bedside tables, a window with shutters and a curtain rail and a ceiling fan. The recently re-furbished en suite has a walk-in shower, a wash-hand basin and a storage unit. The roof terrace is large, tiled and has lovely views of the hills in the surrounding countryside. Off the roof terrace is the "summer kitchen, or "cuisine d'ete" which has a sink with storage underneath, fridge, washing machine and shelving. The terrace has a table and chairs, a parasol and there are various chairs and sunbeds stored on a large storage area at the top of the stairs, just off the terrace. The house is painted white throughout. Each main room has a very effective ceiling fan. The village itself is friendly and small, but with a good range of shops, two supermarkets, bars, restaurants and cafes. It has a market twice a week, selling fresh local produce and clothes, gifts, etc. There are two good bakers, a butcher, a tourist office, a Post Office, a Pharmacy, an art gallery and a church. The main street is pedestrianised and safe for young children. There are some lovely local walks, including to The Cross (La Croix), which is visible from the main street and gives stunning views of the whole village and surrounding area. The village also has an outdoor swimming pool, open in the summer months and very popular with locals and holiday-makers. La Garde Freinet hosts various events throughout the year, including bric-a-brac markets, bowls, a vintage car rally, a fashion show, a chestnut fair and various musical events. Away from the village, there are some breathtakingly beautiful villages and towns to visit; for example, Borme-Les-Mimosas, Gassin, Ramatuelle, Grimaud, Port Grimaud, etc. The famous St Tropez is just a short drive away and makes for a very interesting day out, with it's pretty streets and incredible display of billionaire's yachts! The golden 'Pampelonne' beaches of St. Tropez are a short drive out of the town and offer public or private beaches, always with the chance of some celebrity-spotting! Other local activities include horse-riding, golf, cycling and walking. Whilst allowing for three weeks' family holiday for ourselves, the house has been rented out for holiday lets over the last three summers, bringing in an average income of £4,000 per year. The lettings are very easily managed, with a local, English-speaking key-holder managing all the cleaning, handovers, liaising with clients, etc. Year-round running costs are electricity, local taxes and insurance. Tax Foncieres is 620 euros per annum and Taxe d'Habitation is 790 euros per annum. We have owned the house (and previously another property in the village) for 15 years and have enjoyed every minute! All of our friends and family who have visited La Garde Freinet have, without exception, loved it, and returned again and again on holiday. It is a very special village! Sadly though, all good things must come to an end, and we have decided to sell our beloved house in order to buy another property in the UK. The house is for sale with or without all the furniture, fixtures and fittings.
