la garabagne REVIEWS
A long way from Australia but we felt ‘ totally relaxed and at home ‘ at beautiful La Garabagne. C’est Trez bon !! We had visited Provence many years ago and just had to return !!! Montauroux was perfect as our chosen base to revisit some of the unique villages we remembered in the area but kept finding new and interesting places as well. Our favourites on this trip were Fayence ( fab. Saturday market) beautiful Callians is a MUST, Seillans ( lunch at Michelin rated “ Chez Hugo’s “ with it’s amazing views should not be missed ) a tour and tasting at Val d’Iris local vineyard, we also travelled to Italy on a day trip ( approx.. 45 mins each way !!! ) to visit the foodie markets and enjoyed lunch at La Gritta in Bordighera. Magnifique !! We shall return……!!

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.

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.

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 Faim - 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!
