About Catherine Fischer
I live in Dublin with my husband, Jimmy and two teenage daughters. We bought our villa in 2004, updating the property to include a 12 x 5 metre swimming pool and air-conditioning. Until 2011 we did not rent out the house, preferring to use it as much as possible ourselves. Now our girls are older, they spend less time in France and consequently we have decided to rent out the villa. We have been going to France for over 10 years and fell in love with Seillans as soon as we saw it. Our friends and family and the girls friends have joined us over the years and we have many fantastic memories and photos! One of the most memorable is watching fireworks over the Seillans countryside on 14th July.

Lovely villa and location
A lovely, spacious well equipped villa with great pool set within walking distance of a beautiful village. The villa offered everything we could possibly need for a holiday with our young children and the pool is a really good size.
Everything you could want and more.
I can honestly say it was the best house we have stayed in during our last 9 years going to France. The house was immaculately clean. We are two families of 7 our boys are in their twenties now. The house is actually very deceiving from the outside and the pictures do not do it justice. The main living/dining room is enormous and the large screen TV was a bonus for watching the Tour de France. The pool was just perfect for family fun games.
We walked to the local restaurants the food was delicious. We particularly enjoyed" La Gloire de mon Père "we went to this restaurant twice.
The house is perfectly located for visiting Cannes, Nice and Monaco.
We tried our hand in the Casino in Monaco and I am happy to say we left with more than we spent.
I can recommend the Folly Too sailing boat in Cannes for a fantastic days sailing this was our 2nd time to do this and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
I would have no hesitation in going back to this house as it honestly had everything on our list even down to the Ping Pong Table.
Our booking went very smoothly.
Don't miss out on this special place.
An Artist Paradise!

Séjour très agréable
Au premier contact, l’apect extérieur de la maison déçoit un peu par son crépis à l’ancienne et les façades tachées par le temps. Un rafraîchissement serait le bienvenu.
La maison est spacieuse, bien aménagée et bien équipée.
Elle est également très bien tenue, à l’exception des taches sur l’ensemble des jetés de canapés.
Elle est bien isolée de la chaleur, toutes les pièces à vivre ont des clims que nous n’avons pas utilisées.
La cuisine est bien équipée et très fonctionnelle.
Le barbecue à gaz est de bonne qualité et offre une grande capacité de cuisson.
Les différentes terrasses donnant au Sud et à l’Est sont très agréables en offrant des points de vue différents.
L’ajout d’un coffre permettant de stocker les coussins des bains de soleil pour la nuit serait bien pratique.
La présence d’un petit commerce a 10 mn à pied et du village à peine plus loin permet de ne pas être obligé d’utiliser sa voiture pendant le séjour.
Durant notre séjour nous avons été confrontés dans la salle de bain principale à la remontée d’odeurs provenant de la fosse sceptique.
La piscine est grande et bien exposée, mais le suplément de 80 Eur à payer pour 3 jours de fonctionnement de la pompe à chaleur est un peu cher.
A noter la gentillesse et la disponibilité pendant le sejour de Samanta, la personne accueillant les hôtes.
C’est une maison dans laquelle nous retournerons avec plaisir !
