About La Tortue
You can be on the French Riviera and still get away from it all. The graceful villa of La Tortue lies hidden on a secluded wooded hillside. Yet it's just across the valley from one of the Cote d'Azur's most celebrated villages, La Garde Freinet, and offers views of the same. Built in typical Provençal style but modernised to perfection, this French Riviera villa's old stone façade and pale blue shutters blend discretely into its mountainous surrounds. Inside, heavy oak beamed ceilings and terracotta floors combine with deceptively airy rooms to offer a delightfully suave French retreat.
Ceramic tiles throughout, each with a slightly different turtle (or tortue), give this villa its name. Four bedrooms, including a twin room, mean this villa is ideal as a family getaway. The spacious and tastefully decorated open plan living area open directly onto the outdoor terrace. From this well positioned spot you can soak up the southern sun. There's plenty of space for rest, relaxation and play. La Tortue's mature grounds are dotted with Mediterranean oak and olive trees, and contain an inviting swimming pool from which you can enjoy rolling mountain views extending across the valley.
Although just a short drive from the beaches of St Maxime and St Tropez, this lovely French Riviera villa offers stylish, tranquil accommodation away from the hustle and bustle of the coast.
