Welcome to La Garde-Freinet...

Nestled in the heart of the Maures Mountains, this old provençal village has successfully preserved its authentic character. You get there by picturesque roads, winding through a wild and wonderfully natural landscape, forests with various species of trees and typically Mediterranean cultivated grounds.
La Chapelle St. Jean
Its sentry position at the top of the pass gained it the name of « guard » whence the name of La Garde-Freinet and that of the villagers: the Fraxinois, commonly called Gardois from the provençal word “Gardiòu”.
