This is an exceptional, spacious new villa in a quiet and peaceful hillside setting with a large garden and terraced olive groves yet only 1.5 km from the medieval perched village of Seillans, voted one of the prettiest little villages of France. The living accommodation and bedrooms open onto a large upper terrace with a beautiful outlook over the pool, olive grove and cypress trees. The master bedroom benefits from its own large 1st floor private balcony/solarium.

It has a large modern kitchen / dining room and winter and summer living areas. It has a wood burning fireplace, central heating and air conditioning with en-suite bathrooms in all bedrooms and has outdoor dining table and chairs. Set within 5500 m² of private land, the property is within an hours drive of Nice, St Tropez and the Gorge Verdon..
