Property description

Seventeenth century stone manor house set in 1.25 ha of landscaped grounds with swimming pool and terraces in centre of medieval Seillans, one of France's most beautiful villages. Enjoying spectacular views over the old town and the Esterel mountains, this historic property provides a unique mix of location, space, flexibility, privacy and charm. All within easy walking distance of the centre of the old town. One minutes walk for morning croissants, or the local restaurants!

Recently refurbished the house offers seven bedrooms, kitchen, dining, living, reception and conservatory living rooms. All with beautiful views over Seillans, the valley and mountains and/or our private garden. Capacity for 14, but ideal for multiple family or friend groups 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 HDTV, 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 kitchen is approached from steps externally and has a small shaded terrace. The kitchen is fully stocked with all gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer and 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 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 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. These bedrooms are served by a modern bathroom with bath and shower.

On the fourth floor is one large double bedroom suite, with dressing and seating area. And a further bedroom comprising 2 singles beds . This floor is also served by a modern bathroom. All bedrooms contain fitted wardrobes, cupboards, bed side lights and each has superb views over the old town and/or panoramic countryside views.

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.
