La Garde -Freinet is a commune in the Var department in the Provence- Alpes- Côte d’ Azur, it belongs to the district of Draguignan and Canton Grimaud .
Traditionally, La Garde -Freinet is regarded as the place where the Saracens settled in the 890 years in Provence (see: Fraxinetum ) . After the battle of tour tour they were driven 973 by Count William I from here ( and from Provence ) .
Fraxinetum (Arabic Farahsanit , English Fraxinet , today French La Garde-Freinet ) was from 888/889 to about 975 a bridgehead of the Moors in the early medieval Burgundy near Frejus in what is now southern France.
The base was the procurement of wood and the slave trade. Initially started as a “private” company by Moorish pirates , a greater influence of the Caliphate of Córdoba is detectable from 940 . From Fraxinetum the Moors came before to Vienne ( near Lyon , France) , Asti (Piedmont, Italy ) and even to St. Gallen ( Switzerland ) , occupied the Alpine passes ( Great Bernhard ) and dominated the Provence , Savoy and large parts of Switzerland ( 952-960 ) .
The rise of Ostfrankenreiches under the Ottos also led to the strengthening of Burgundy and the conquest of Fraxinetum to about 975 by a Burgundian- Provençal army and supported by a Byzantine fleet blockade.
