The Village

Seillans has earned the right to be called “un des plus beaux villages de France” with its charming cobbled streets and shady squares leading up to the restored castle. It is one of the perched medieval villages of Provence, lively all year round and in the summer full of flowers. It was the last home of Max Ernst, a famous XX century painter who spent the last years of his life in this village, with his American artist wife Dorothea. Many painters, sculptors and potters have made their home in Seillans over the years.

The Surroundings

Just outside the village lies the beautiful Roman chapel of Notre Dame des Ormeaux, with its superb Renaissance altar-piece. The next village, Fayence, is home to one of the better known gliding clubs in Europe. Lake St. Cassien, 15 minutes away, offers excellent swimming, wind surfing etc. Easy day trips can be made to all the well known places and beaches along the Riviera: St. Tropez, St. Raphael, Antibes, Cannes,Nice, Monaco, les Gorges du Verdon etc. There are public tennis courts and a swimming pool in the village. There are also some beautiful walks in the area and the skiing slopes of Greolieres, Isola and Val de l’Alos are easily accessible. And for “les amateurs du vin” (wine lovers), road D25 is a beautiful drive through forests and the Gorges de Pennafort. It is one of the best wine roads in the region with several vineyards where visitors are welcome to sample Cotes de Provence wines. Half of all French rosés originate in this AOC region.

Seillans and Fayence are well served by shops, markets (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday in Fayence, Wednesday in Seillans) and several supermarkets, as well as a good range of cafés and restaurants. There are a number of doctors and dentists in the villages, and excellent hospitals in Draguignan, Grasse and on the Coast.

                      Apart from the familiar French boulangeries, butcher's and grocer's shops, the village has a small supermarket, a few good restaurants and cafés, a petrol station, and has a (small) market day on Wednesdays. Just outside the village lies the beautiful Roman chapel of Notre Dame des Ormeaux, with a famous Renaissance altar-piece. Can only be visited with a guided tour (Thursday morning).

                      The village of Fayence is a bit more substantial than Seillans, and is very well served by shops, several supermarkets, as well as having a good range of cafés and restaurants. It is particularly active on market days which are on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays (most substantial market). Fayence is also home to one of the better-known gliding clubs in Europe.

                      Bargemon, 8km drive from Seillans, is another picturesque medieval village with nice restaurants and old streets worth exploring. Posh and Becks used to have a house there before they moved to L.A…

                      There are a number of great golf courses in the region open to visitors, including:

                      • Domaine de Terres Blanches(www.terreblanchegolfclub.com) Two beautiful 18-hole courses 20 minutes drive from Seillans

                      • Chateau de Taulane (www.chateau-taulane.com) – Stunning mountain course located 45 minutes drive from Seillans up the Route de Mons.

                      • Old Course Cannes Mandalieu (www.golfoldcourse.com) – Fun course located on the coast, 35 minutes drive from Seillans.

                      Watersports

                      Lac St. Cassien (15 minutes from Seillans) has the usual activities of swimming, sailing, windsurfing, pedalos, and fishing. Seillans has a public swimming pool (tel: +33 (0)494768637), while there are lots of easily-accessible beaches on the coast.

                      Tennis

                      There are good quality public tennis courts available at the bottom of both Fayence and Seillans villages. To book a court in Seillans call +33 (0)494768589 or Fayence call +33 (0)494841760 (though it’s normally fine to just turn up and play).

                      Gliding / Flying

                      Fayence is a world-renowned centre for gliding due to the thermals rising up to the surrounding hills. At the Fayence Aerodrome (10 minutes from Seillans - www.aapca.net/) you can have a guest flight with an instructor either in a small plane or in a glider. (Advisable to book a day in advance). Alternatively, there is a nice restaurant and cafe at the gliding centre where you can relax and watch the fun….

                      Places to visit / day trips

                      • La route des vins – (Starts 20 minutes from Seillans) For “les amateurs du vin” (wine lovers), the D25 road is a beautiful drive through forests and the Gorges de Pennafort. It is one of the best wine roads in the region with several vineyards where visitors are welcome to sample Cotes de Provence wines. Half of all French rosés originate in this AOC region. We recommend [Chateau d’Esclans, Jas d’Esclans, les Grands Esclans, Chateau Rouet, etc.….]

                      • St. Tropez – (1 hour from Seillans to St. Maxime) See how the other half live. If driving from Seillans, we suggest you park at St. Maxime and take the ferry across the bay. It’s more scenic and avoids the traffic!

                      • Nice – (50 minutes from Seillans) Walk along the Promenade des Anglais, visit the flower market, amble through the pedestrianised old town, and enjoy a good lunch. For those culturally inclined, there are the Matisse and the Chagall Museums also!

                      • Antibes – (40 minutes from Seillans) Where the largest mega-yachts on the Riviera dock. Visit the Picasso museum at the Chateau Grimaldi, or just sit down and have a beer and a nice meal in the beautiful old town.

                      • Monaco – (1.30 hour from Seillans) The casino, the port, the Maritime Museum and aquarium, the prices (!!), the scene…

                      • St. Paul de Vence – (1 hour from Seillans) Beautiful old town perched on the hillside behind Nice. Visit the Fondation Maeght (www.fondation-maeght.com/), which is a fantastic modern art museum in beautiful outdoor surroundings. Lots of good restaurants in St. Paul, including La Colombe d’Or for those unaffected by the credit crunch.

                      • Cannes – (40 minutes from Seillans) Check out one of the Riviera’s more famous croissettes, visit the beaches, have lunch by the old port.

                      • Gorges de Verdon (45 minutes from Seillans) (http://www.provenceweb.fr/e/groupes/verdon/gorges.htm) is the French version of the Grand Canyon and really spectacular.

                      • Lac St. Croix – (1.5 hours from Seillans) The largest of the Verdon lakes. Combine with the drive through the Gorge de Verdon and a well-earned lunch at the “Bastide de Moustiers” (see restaurants).

                      • Bandol – (1,30 hour from Seillans to the West) Premier wine producing area. We can highly recommend both Chateau de Pibarnon and Domaine de Tempier.

                      • Grasse – (45 minutes from Seillans) Home of French perfume and therefore perfum capital of the world.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1996

                      About the owner: We bought the property in 1996 but spent three years 'doing it up/building it' and only came to live here in 1999. There we are happily in our lovely kitchen.

                      Why the Owner Chose Seillans:
                      We found that this was the ideal retirement property for a couple who had always lived in beautiful places, but as expats. Seillans is a highly civilized rural area and it has the advantage of being within easy access of the second airport in France (Nice Cote d'Azur) and counting on innumerable entertainment facilities, both cultural and sportive.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      No matter what your interests are, they can easily be satisfied from Seillans... Come to see and enjoy the place and what it offers!
