The setting on the hill overlooking Seillans is magical; and it's a beautiful village with enough bars, restaurants and shops to make the short walk there very worthwhile. The house itself has been impeccably renovated keeping tonnes of period charm but with all mod cons. It really does look better than the pictures. Great kitchen with lots of equipment (a rarity in some rental properties) and very comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms. We spent most time outdoors in the two main outdoor areas outside the house with the two amazing views onto Seillans and down towards the coast; and down at the pool in the pergola area. The pool itself is a massive bonus. At 15m long and deep enough to dive into, it's better than most. Had a great holiday here. Will hope to be back.
