Seillans house description

Seventeenth century stone house set in 1.25 ha of landscaped grounds & swimming pool in centre of medieval Seillans. Enjoying spectacular views over the old town and the Esterel peninsula, this historic property provides a unique mix of location, luxury, flexibility, privacy and charm. All within easy walking distance of all of the facilities of the old town. Recently refurbished the house offers modern kitchen, dining and living rooms. Capacity for 14, but ideal for families of 12 (or less) with 8 adults. Conservatory area offers further living space with beautiful views over old-town. Modern bath & shower rooms on each of the 3 floors of bedrooms. Beamed living room offers CANAL+ Satellite TV, video, DVD, and CD/Tuner stereo. Attached single garage, guarantees local parking. External dining & table tennis areas, plus additional terraces with retractable awning and hardwood furniture, over looking fully stocked secluded gardens & swimming pool - provides maximum opportunity for out door living.


The House Grounds: The house faces south and enjoys spectacular views over the village, surrounding countryside and distant Esterel mountains. The half acre sloping garden is pleasantly planted with flowering shrubs, fruit trees and lawns. The garden is complemented by several paved terraces, which are each furnished with hardwood sun chairs and loungers. The shady external dining terrace is furnished with a 3m hardwood table and teak chairs [seats 14] and equipped with a large Argentinian charcoal BBQ. An 8.5m x 4.5m swimming pool, with alarm, is also set in a sunny terrace. The garden and pool are protected by a fence.
Please note that the house over looks the place-de-la-resistance (village square), which hosts various festivals throughout the year, as well as the local boule area for the village. As one would expect, during weekends and village festivals the village square can be busy in the evenings and the focus point for celebration, which can impact on the peace and tranquillity of normal village life.

First Floor Living Areas:: The 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. The kitchen, dining room and conservatory are located on the first floor. The kitchen is approached from steps externally and has a small shaded terrace. The kitchen is fully stocked with all appliances, crockery and cutlery sufficient for the number of guests. 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 area is reached, which has stunning views over the old town.

Third Floor Living Areas:: 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 modern colour television, satellite TV and a combined DVD and Video player. An extensive supply of DVDs, videos and CDs are contained in 2 large teak book cases that also contain a stereo system and a wide range of books and games. The walls are hung with a collection of Zarou prints. Wifi and free landline calls to 50 countries.

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 du Verdon (45 mins) and Lac St Cassien (10 mins). Seillans is also perfectly placed to widely explore the beauty of the Cote d' Azur and Provence, given its proximity to the A8 motorway.

Other Activities: The Owner also offers a bespoke, guided, holiday tour service for groups of family/friends using the house as the base.

Golf: Europe’s most complete golf facility, Terre Blanche Golf Club has earned a position among the world’s top-level golf destinations and is less than 15 mins from our house. With a mild year-round climate, Terre Blanche provides an unrivalled environment for improving your game.

Offering the ultimate in Provence golf, the club features two 18-hole, par-72 championship courses – Le Riou and Le Château – designed by golf legend Dave Thomas to make the most of the lush hills and valleys.

Elevating Terre Blanche to international stature is the one-of-a-kind Albatros Golf Performance Center, a massive practice and training facility focused on achieving transformative results. On-site expertise encompasses BioMecaSwing Assessment and a David Leadbetter Golf Academy. This comprehensive training approach benefits players of all levels – from beginner to expert.
