Massif des Maures, hike & bike

La Garde Freinet is located in the middle of the natural reserve of the "MASSIF des MAURES". Throughout the hills are 10 hiking and BMX/VTT trails or so, each with magnificent views over the MASSIF and towards the Mediterranean coast. It is a wonderful environment for hikers, cyclists and horseback riders (horse rental via the Tourist Office of La Garde-Freinet).

There is also a walking discovery trail through the village of La Garde Freinet that takes you along the many fountains and Lavoirs (public wash basins) and leads you up to the Cross and further to the ruins of the Fort Freinet (which probably dates back to 900 ac.).
