Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Seillans - Le Rayol
Secluded location, 5 km from Seillans village, 4 bedrooms/ sleeps 7, 4 bathrooms
Le Rayol is a carefully renovated natural stone villa standing in 15 acres of terraced olive-groves, maritime pine trees and grass. The house faces south-east and the house-front and terraced patio (for 'al fresco' meals!) are covered by a beautiful old wisteria. Here you will find peace and quiet, summer breezes, carrying the scent of lavender, thyme, rosemary and pine, and a 'forever' view to die for.
In the white washed clear and simple decor of the house you will also find some family antiques. The windows have wooden shutters on the inside and out. There is a 12x6 m outdoor private swimming-pool and a breathtaking open view over the hills towards the sea. Easy winter-living: you will find central heating and a fire place for the cooler months of the year. The house also adjusts well for 2 people. There are no immediate neighbours. Shaded parking. Outdoor furniture provided. Please note that the last 800 metres or so of road to the property is not tarred and its condition varies depending on the weather. After many weeks of heavy rain (very rare during the main season) one has to drive carefully to avoid small rock protrusions. No need for 4x4 vehicles.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our 4 weeks at 'Le Rayol' were fantastic. It was a real pleasure to live there for such long holidays and we enjoyed every minute of it. It is a beautiful estate and all was perfect. We felt blessed by the complete seclusion of Le Rayol thanks to the substantial land surrounding it. The beauty of the nature, the animals and the privacy were really enjoyed by us when we made our walks through the environnement almost every day. Also we benefitted from the almost permanent cloudless skies to do a lot of 'star gazing' at night. You have developped a beautifully landscaped garden with numerous terraces and lovely olive trees.
Just to say how very much we all enjoyed our week at Le Rayol. It really is the most wonderful place - the beautifully furnished house, the superb pool with its breathtaking views and the magical gardens. We loved Seillans and enjoyed exploring many of the surrounding villages. Thank you again for letting us use your fantastic house.
