Guillaume LAFARGE purchased this Villa in 1990
Why Guillaume LAFARGE chose La Garde
We rent our family house in which our children grew up until the late 1990s. The house has benefited from renovations and decoration in 2009 to welcome you at best in a pleasant and with modern equipment (swimming pool secured 12 x 6 m, satellite TV, wifi, modern kitchen ..)
What makes this Villa unique
Our villa is not only a "holiday house" but above all a family house, furnished with comfort, functionality and warmth. Its location is exceptional (landscaped garden with its Mediterranean pines overlooking the sea) and very quiet while remaining close to amenities (supermarket, beach, shopping center ...)

Superb villa & great views
We had a marvellous holiday, the house was spacious, very well equipped and with mixed generations it easily accommodated 9 of us. The pool was excellent and a good size, lots of sun loungers and with a garden area that allowed space for games.
Nearby beaches were good, but quite a steep walk.
We would thoroughly recommend the house.

We spent a wonderful week in the La Garde property in July 2018. There were 10 of us - 5 adults and 5 children - across 3 generations. The photographs on the website are accurate but don't show how spacious the house is. The rooms are large and the ceilings are high. There was plenty of ventilation on the hot summer days and nights. The views are incredible and we could watch the French navy ships and submarines pass by. The large pool was the highlight for the children. The cooking facilities are very good - especially the outdoor hot plate. We enjoyed eating inside and outside and spending time together as a family. 3 of the 6 bedrooms are en-suite and there are two further bathrooms/toilets. The house and pool were very clean. There is parking for 3 cars in the property and more parking on the road outside. Veronique, the agent, was very helpful and sorted out a few minor issues promptly and without fuss. There are good restaurants nearby including Auberge Saint Marguerite. We spent a day in Toulon (markets and boat trip around the harbour) and another in Monaco where we saw celebrities including Elton John out shopping. The children enjoyed seeing all the supercars. Some minor issues: mosquito bites, the internet connection/Wifi was a little slow, the TV reception not great (somewhat difficult to watch the world cup matches) and although there was a lot of information in the house regarding things to do in the area it was all in French. Watch out for French supermarket opening times on Saturdays and Sundays (close early on Saturdays and not open Sunday afternoons). Finally the Anse de Magaud beach, which is within 10 minutes walking distance, is very beautiful but the path down to it is quite steep and not suitable for a person with reduced mobility. We great had a really good holiday - thank you.
Thank you Padraig for your review and comments.
We always try to do our best for our guests and we look foward to welcoming you again in the future.
Beautiful property with stunning seaview
Large house with great garden and pool area. We were 3 families with kids aged 2-7 and everyone enjoyed it. Excellent communication with host and representative. A couple of minor issues solved quickly. Recommended!
an amazing villa!
I booked this to celebrate my fathers 70th with 10 adult family members and a baby! The house is breathtaking and the views are insane! The house is very comfortable and clean and really has everything you could need including children’s cots and toys! We absolutely will return to stay again. Thank you for having us!
Spacious house in an excellent position, within walking distance of a beach.
Excellent family home in a lovely location. Wonderful views from the property. We enjoyed a great fortnight, despite the weather being colder and wetter than normal at this time of year.
Der Ausblick ist atemberaubend, das Haus sehr groß mit einem tollen Garten mit viel Schatten und einem Pool. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, alle Zimmer sind hell, geräumig und blitzsauber. Die Kommunikation war unkompliziert und schnell. Es gibt keinen direkten Weg zum Strand, in circa 12 Minuten Fußweg findet man einen schönen kleinen Kiesstrand.
A 3 km from Toulon, the villa is easily accessible by motorway. The beaches of handles Magaud and Mejean can be reached on foot, 900 m, and shops are within 2 km. 1 hour drive, 5 golf courses; the nearest is 5 km away.
