Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 6

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. The villa combines the sympathetic looks of a traditional provencal stone farmhouse with the modernity and open spaces of a contemporary property. 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..

Local area: The house is just 50 minutes from Nice airport. A journey of 20 minutes takes you to Lac St. Cassien, ideal for children with its beaches, pedalos and restaurants. Lac Ste. Croix and the spectacular Gorge du Verdon are 50 minutes drive. There you will find rafting, sailing, climbing or wonderful walks. The coastal beaches and resorts of Ste. Maxime, St. Tropez and Frejus are reached in 40 minutes. Or simply explore the lovely local area with its forest walks and colourful villages. Visit a different market every day! In this area famous for its gastronomy, gourmet restaurants abound. In the winter, the slopes are reached within an hour where great skiing can be found.

Skiing information: In the winter and even up until Easter skiing is available at Alpine resorts like Isola, which is only a 2- hour drive. If you are happy with smaller slopes you can find them directly north of Montauroux only 1- hour drive north.

Golf information: This is an ideal area for golfing. You can reach many golf courses within one hours drive. The nearest golf courses are the two new courses at the Terre Blache only 15 minutes drive from the house. These golf courses are worth a visit. From the course you have fantastic views toward the villages and in the background the mountains. The domain de Terre Blache includes a Four Season Resort Hotel and you might even want to visit their magnificent restaurant Le Faventia which was rewarded a Michelen star last year.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

This truly is a beautiful, immaculate house with all the amenities you could wish for. The kitchen is fully equipped which makes it easy to prepare evening meals and the bedrooms are fully air-conditioned which is a real necessity in August. Each bedroom has an ensuite with excellent walk-in shower. The lovely pool and shaded outside seating area (not shown in pictures) are ideal for cooling off from the mid-day sun. Petra the housekeeper was very welcoming and just a phone call away for any help and guidance.

There is a large supermarket in Fayence which is about a 10 minute drive and a small supermarket in Seillans which has a good selection.

The house is located in an excellent position, only a 5 minute drive from Seillans, and close to many other hill top villages. It is about one hour from the coast and one hour from Gorge du Verdon which is stunning. As an alternative to the coast, Lac St Cassien is a 20 minute drive and is beautiful with many water sports available.

We had a fantastic holiday and would highly recommend the property and location.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a very happy week in this lovely, spacious villa in Seillans. The villa is immaculate and extremely well designed. All bedrooms were excellent and had air conditioning, if needed. The pool remained very warm throughout the week and was much loved by all.

There are some fantastic cycle rides in the area and it was very easy to get to the coast too. We were very sad to leave and hope to return sometime.

Thank you Mindy for being so helpful and efficient throughout.

What a great place, we just had a great week

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for a getaway in one of the best parts of Provence. Lovely, secluded villa combining that rustic feel with all the comfort and kit you have at home. Just as the web site said. Kitchen and open plan just worked really well for us. Villa is less than an hour's drive of the beach, with Antibes & Nice in one direction and the Alpes in the other. My wife and I will be back.

Great villa

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with my family and wife first week of August. Very well constructed and sympathetic villa. Huge, open living space biggest plus, kitchen very nice and fully kitted out, pool nice. Good sized and comfortable bedrooms with air con! Overall a great experience, the villa is beautiful and the location is terrific. Such a stunning area. Very friendly and helpful owner. Will definitely go back one day!

Maybe just a few minor things:

- No aircon downstairs so rather than keeping the windows open (let's in mosquitos) a portable fan seems like a great idea in the summer

- Would have been nice to have the option for a mid-week/partial cleaning

- Wasp's nest by the pool (at least when we were staying there)

- BBQ wasn't properly cleaned and maintained so we couldn't use it

Autumn break – 2nd Time - Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to Seillans, with both times having booked and stayed at this Villa. All I can say it was even better the second time.

We flew to Nice from Gatwick and hired a car from the airport. Everything went smoothly with the exception of missing our early morning flight. The property was easy to find, having used the provided Tom-Tom.

The property was immaculate with the facilities all working as described and appropriately. The olive garden offered a peaceful rest and a splendid location for the actual house. The house contained many items which were unexpected and welcomed such as the toys for the children and maps of the surrounding areas, it seems as though every conceivable item had been provided. One of the main benefits was that the property felt home and it was always looked forward to when returning from a visit. The village itself is amazing, and we enjoyed our time there.

I was able to go running through the village and hills with many cyclists also using the hill training. The beaches of Nice and Cannes are not far away and we also went to Skiing in the alps which was again pretty wicked.

Mindy, was only text away – and offered a considerable amount of help with the amenities and places of interest. I would recommend this villa without hesitation, and look forward to visiting in the summer and at least once in the winter!

Car: necessary

Seillans is one of five perched villages located just west of Grasse and north west of Cannes. The other villages are called Montauroux, Callian, Tourettes, Fayence. Seillans is the oldest and listed as one of the untouched villages of Provence. There are many good restaurants in the area including several with Michelin stars. The area has several typical local markets throughout the week and is only 15 minutes from good vineyards where you can buy directly from the farm as well as you will be able to buy the local olive oil. We are only 30 minutes drive from Cannes and 50 from Nice. You can visit all the sights on the coast and at the same time drive back and enjoy the quiet area in the back hills. Behind us you will find the mountains where you can hike and drive through the large cliffs. All in all this area offers a large variety of things to do.

Other Activities: air gliding in Fayence
