Very pleasant Provencal villa at walking distance from Seillans, voted one of the prettiest little villages of France. Lovely views over hillside and valley. Quiet, but close to the mondain Côte d'Azur. The villa is set in grounds of 2500 sqm with a view of terraced olive groves. Large 10 x 5 m private swimming pool. This quiet location (no through road) offers all you need for a peaceful and relaxing holiday.
The property is at walking distance from all facilities for daily needs, bakery, supermarket, chemist's. A bit further afield larger supermarkets can be found. Privileged situation: near Grasse, Cannes, not so far St Tropez, Massif Esterel, near lake St Cassien, Gorges du Verdon. The mediterrean is not far away and a day on the beachis lovely. Close by is the famous international golf and country club Terre Blanche in the neighbouring village of Fayence/Tourrettes. Also in Fayence recently a spa centre has opened.
The villa: Les Oliviers was built in 2000 and is a modern, but charming Provencal villa. Located just outside the little village, it takes only ten minutes in the morning to walk to the baker, where you can buy fresh baguettes and croissants. The covered terrace is ideal for al fresco eating, while you enjoy the wonderful views over hillside and valley.
A summer kitchen with a stone barbecue has been built to add to outdoor living. A lovely spot to relax and unwind in and ideally placed to explore this part of the Var.
The region: There is always something going on somewhere and you can usually find a village market or a shady cafe/restaurant. Fayence has a market three times a week (mornings) and the market at Le Muy, 30 kms away, is worth the trip. Grasse, Mougins and Draguignan are within an easy drive and there are some fine beaches and good seafood restaurants along the coast.
Nature is very varied, with woods, lakes, hills and mountains and is excellent for walking.
Further afield: A good day out will take you to the stunning Verdon Gorges, or to Moustiers Saint Marie, famous for its pottery. Saint Tropez and Nice, with its wonderful Friday morning flower market in the old part of the town, are an hour or so from here.
