All with beautiful views over Seillans, the valley and mountains and/or our private garden. Capacity for 14, but ideal for families of 12 (or less) with 8 adults. Modern bath/shower rooms on each of the 3 floors of bedrooms. Wifi and free (VOIP) telephone calls to over 50 countries. Beamed living room offers TV, DVD, Apple TV and digital music system. Table tennis and table football provided in ground floor reception area. Attached single garage, guarantees local parking. The House Grounds: The house faces south and enjoys spectacular views over the village, surrounding countryside and distant Esterel mountains. The half acre terraced garden is pleasantly planted with flowering shrubs, fruit trees and lawns. The garden is complemented by several paved terraces, which are each furnished with a mix of hardwood sun chairs and loungers. The shady external dining terrace is furnished with a 3m hardwood table and teak chairs and equipped with a large Argentinian charcoal BBQ. An 9.5m x 4.5m swimming pool, with alarm, is also set in a sunny terrace. The property lies in the heart of Seillans old town, over looking both the Place-de-la-Republic and Place-du-Thouron. The Place-du-Thouron is home to ‘La Gloire de Mon Pere’ restaurant, a boulangerie and a small epicerie. The Place-de-la-Republic is the principal village square and provides space for boules and car parking. As the principal village meeting place, the Place-de-la-Republic hosts various village events throughout the year, such as; a small weekly farmers market, occasional antique fairs and the annual ‘Bastille Day’ celebration. As you would expect of such a central location in the old town, some noise from village life and celebration is inevitable at times. The house interior is full of character, attractively and comfortably decorated in a mixture of local antiques and modern furnishings. The floors are set in marble or old Provencal tiles. The accommodation is on five levels, with half-landings between them. First Floor Living Areas: The kitchen, dining room and conservatory are located on the first floor.

The dining room leads directly off the kitchen, and has a large oak dining table and chairs and oak side board. The dining room also boasts a wood burning stove for use in the winter. The walls are hung with a collection of Provencal prints. From the dining room a comfortable and light [triple aspect] conservatory/ seating room is reached, which has stunning views over the old town. Third Floor Living Room: A large beamed living room is located on the third floor level. The room is double aspect with twin windows overlooking the garden and pool, with superb uninterrupted views to the mountains behind the village. Separate double french doors provide access to an elevated terrace with views of, and gated access [via steps] to, the garden and pool. The terrace contains teak table and chairs. A retractable awning can also be deployed to provide shade to this external area. The living room is furnished with a modern large sofa suite, capable of seating 10 persons. The living room also contains a satellite television, Blu-ray DVD, Apple TV and digital music system. An extensive supply of DVDs are contained in 2 large teak book cases, which also house a wide range of books and games. Bedrooms: At the Ground level are two cool 'summer' bedrooms. The main double bedroom suite is large, with 'lounge' seating area, fireplace and french windows to the front elevation of the house. A further window on the side elevation boasts beautiful views over the old town to the chateau. Leading off the main bedroom is a large family bathroom and further bedroom (2 single beds & cot) suitable for children. Please note; that the second bedroom is only accessible via the main ground floor suite. On the second floor there are one double , one twin and one further (small) double bedrooms.

About the neighbourhood
Seillans is recognised as one of the most beautiful villages of France. Set in spectacular, unspoilt scenery, the 'perched' village is a harmonious collection of pink, pastel houses, steeply terraced slopes with a labyrinth of cobbled alleyways, squares, rustic portals and arches, still surrounded in part by it's fortified ramparts. Delightful fountains and 'lavoirs' are a feature of the village and are found in almost every street. All the facilities of the village are within a couple of minutes walk of the house, including patisseries, restaurants and bars. Whilst a haven of tranquillity and beauty, the village is less than 45 minutes from Nice and 25 minutes from Cannes. The beautiful beaches of Frejus and St Raphael are less than 45 minutes distant. Also easily accessible is the Gorge ...
Getting around
From Seillans all the sites of Provence and the Côte D'Azur, the coast and the mountains are all easily accessible by car.
