Seillans house description

The house is a typical provençal house, built in the 17th century and situated on the edge of one of the most exquisite villages in the south of France. It is unusual, peaceful, spacious and well equipped and 5 minutes walk from the village centre. You have the possibility to stay and relax in the house and the garden or to explore the numerous wonderful places in the region.

The house has the advantage of being extremely private yet in the village, and you can walk out of the house into glorious countryside. Within an hour's drive you can reach Nice, Cannes, Antibes, and Draguignan, with Aix-en-Provence, Marseille, St Tropez and the Gorges du Verdon within easy reach.

The house easily sleeps 6 to 7. There is a large bedroom with an en-suite bathroom on the first floor. On the top floor there is a double bedroom, plus a double and a divan bed in a large ‘atelier’. The top floor has its own shower, WC and a fully-equipped beech Magnet kitchen, breakfast bar and dining area - plus 'Juliet' balcony with glorious views of the village and to the south.

There are 2 staircases which link the lower and middle floors. The building has character, charm and history: one of the stair-cases is spiral and all floors are tiled. There are not many modern right-angles in the structure and design: it is a rewarding experience to explore the authentic but sensitively modernised old buidling.

On the ground floor there is a kitchen/dining/living room, WC, plus a large garden with vine-covered patio. There are places to enjoy the sun and to eat and drink in privacy and shade. The Habitat beech kitchen looks great & is well equipped. There is a super 5-burner gas hob, double sink, big fridge-freezer, dishwasher, micro-wave, electric oven, kettle, magi-mix, toaster etc! Each dining area has tables and chairs for 4-8 people.

Seillans is very well placed, close to many other small towns, many of which have good shops, cafes and restaurants. Most of them have markets, local festivals and celebrations and all are a sheer delight to visit and to experience the unique atmosphere this region has to offer.

In summer you are far away from the crowds at the coast, but with lakes and rivers to swim in close by, plus many local swimming pools, beautiful clean water is in abundance. The mountains of the southern alps are a little more than an hour away by car, which makes wonderful hiking in summer, and skiing in

I started out as a professional musician, and am now involved in the promotion of music, working with record companies, international orchestras, festivals and artists. I now mainly live in London, and Zurich and like to spend as much time as possible in France, where the festival Musique Cordiale has become one of the significant events in the life of the village of Seillans.

I love Seillans and the area and all it has to offer, so i hope you will too.

Keywords: This beautiful 18th century spacious village house is simple, practical and romantic. It has a large south facing garden with trees for shade and a wonderful view of the village. The house is user friendly and ideal for a family or just one or two people. The house was renovated by an artist who liked large rooms and lots of light. Originally 2 houses, there are 2 staircases and the top floor with a Romeo and Juliet balcony can be accessed separately.
