What they said about La Garabagne?


It's a lovely villa, we really liked its layout, design and furnishings. Nothing too fussy, the big airy ceilings were great at this time of year.

Just wanted to say how much we loved staying at La Garabagne in January. We thought nothing could be better than the fortnight we had there in September when we swam every day and explored the local villages, markets and cafes in perfect weather and picked ripe cherries and figs from your garden. But the villa was just as beautiful and comfortable in winter and we loved the shopping in Antibes and San Rafael.

Our friends insist May is the best time in the south of France so we might try that next time.

I stayed at La Garabagne in April this year when the gorgeous cerise Judas trees were in blossom. The weather was perfect and not too hot. Unfortunately, I was there a bit too early for the pool as it doesn't open until May. The evenings were cooler so it was time to light the fire and snuggle up in front of the TV with a glass of wine. The house itself is beautifully furnished with a well-equipped kitchen and incredibly comfortable beds. It was lovely to have meals on the kitchen terrace with magnificent views over the valley and two of the bedrooms have terraces and views too.

Nice airport is less than an hour away and there were loads of places to visit within easy driving distance such as Cannes, Monte Carlo, etc.

I can thoroughly recommend a couple of weeks at La Garabagne as it's the perfect place to relax and wind down.

We had a very pleasant stay, the house is well furnished, spacious and comfortable. Great kitchen and dining with excellent access to the outdoor living area. Large swimming pool was fabulous.

Easy walk to the friendly village, which has bakery, supermarket, bars and tourist info office, easy drive to the coast, and surrounding villages which all have their own identity, Fayance, Grasse, etc.

Ooh la la....if you are looking for a unique French experience you simply must visit the beautiful medieval perched village of Montauroux and stay at Maison La Garabagne with stunning views from the terrace of the surrounding towns and vineyards (this area is premier producer of Rose wine and has a generous gastronomy to match).

Here you will avoid all the crowds of the Riveria (unless you want to pop down for the day) and instead experience a unique Provence style of living with friendly and helpful neighbours and local shopkeepers; play a leisurely game of boules in the village square whilst sipping on a Rose from a nearby cafe; the surrounding markets are full of wonderful local produce...and I particularly enjoyed Fayance.

La Garabagne is tres chic with its beautifully appointed bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, open fireplace...and oh those fabulous shutter doors leading to the alfresco style of terrace dining. And anytime is the right time for a splash in the pool at La Garabagne. The local restaurants are a short stroll and great for people-watching and I loved watching the village come alive each morning when I went to buy our croissants!

To me La Garabagne is magical at any time of the year and I can't wait to return again. Bon voyage!

We enjoyed our stay at La Garabagne. The location is lovely. Montauroux is an authentic French village, complete with a cinema sometimes showing films in English. We ate at Le Marina 3 nights and enjoyed it every time – the staff are particularly friendly. The area has lots of lovely places to visit – Cheryl has covered many of them in her notes but we’d like to add Tourettes: the self-guided walk through the narrow streets decorated with art work is well worth doing (but we didn’t notice anywhere for lunch). And the Moulin de la Camandoule restaurant is worth a special mention: it’s very quaint and the food and ambience are particularly good. The Garabagne house was a great base from which to explore the area: the house is well equipped & the beds are comfortable. The driveway is a little daunting to begin with but we quickly got used to it.

La Garabagne is an elegant yet very comfortable home nestling in a spectacular location with stunning views across fields, forests and mountains. Its lovely swimming pool is an ideal place to chill and relax after a busy day sightseeing! The balcony is a wonderful spot to sit whilst watching the sun go down across the Provencal countryside.

The nearby village of Montaroux is charming and a great place to enjoy a coffee in the square. A visit to La Marina for an evening meal is a must! The villages of Tourettes, Fayence and Callian are very pretty locations in which to soak up the local atmosphere.

If you are looking for a truly relaxing holiday then this is the perfect place!

We were fortunate enough to stay in La Garabagne in April 2017 for three weeks. The weather was perfect and so was the villa! We found its proximity to so many little historic villages (so much fun to explore) and all other centres e.g.Cannes, Grasse, St Tropez, San Remo, Nice and so many others. The actual village of Montauroux was perfect PROVENCE with a fabulous restaurant we frequently visited. Being able to come back each night to such peaceful surroundings was a real bonus. We considered ourselves to be extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to stay and would recommend it wholeheartedly .

We so loved our stay there this summer - it was once again magical. Le Marina was so good! There was a new restaurant we tried around the corner from Le Marina - Histoire Sans Fam - it was also very very good! Actually I have to say those 2 places were the best on our whole trip.

Being so close to everything was awesome - great place to explore Cannes and so many wineries!

Hopefully we will get there again soon!
