About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Le Vieux Moulin is a large restored Provencal house overlooking the medieval village of Seillans (listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France with its restaurants, shops and cobbled pedestrian streets). A short walk down the back lane takes you there.

A swimming pool with a magnificent view of mountains and village sits on the opposite side of the large olive tree grove

The house has a large outside terrace, tiled in travertine marble and shaded by wisteria, for balmy outdoor dining and a wonderful view of the village and the Esterel mountains.

The house reflects the spirit of the artist who originally restored it: floors tiled in travertine or traditional Provincial terracotta, handpainted Spanish tiling in the bathrooms and kitchen, artworks and antiques both inside and out.

The setting is extremely peaceful and comfortable and a short drive takes you to the markets of nearby villages (Fayence, Bargemon, Mons), the museums of Vence and Antibes or the glamour and excitement of La Cote d'Azur (45 minutes to Cannes, an hour to St. Tropez or Nice).

The house has four upstairs bedrooms and a full bathroom (with tub/shower, toilet and bidet) upstairs. There is an additional toilet downstairs with an antique sink carved from a single piece of stone. Three of the bedrooms have queen size beds and the fourth bedroom is divided into two smaller rooms, one with a double and one with a single bed. Each bedroom has a desk and wonderful views. One of the bedrooms opens out to the olive grove to the rear of the house, allowing two separate entrances to the house for added privacy.

The kitchen was fully renovated in 2011 with a new double sink,dishwasher,gas range, electric oven and ample prep space. An in-kitchen table seats four and the separate dining room seats eight comfortably. The easily accessible outdoor veranda has seating for 12 people with a fabulous view of the 12th century village of Seillans.

The living room study has a television, DVD player, house library and CD sound system. There is a large couch for lounging, and an antique table for desk work (including a new printer/fax machine).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1963

Why the Owner Chose Seillans, France:
The house was purchased by my parents during a family vacation when I was a child: they fell madly in love with the property, the village and the location and made this considerable impulse buy out of love. As luck would have it, it turns out that the impulse was a great one. We have never tired of the landscape and the amenities of the region, and the convenience of being located so near to a major airport (Nice) while enjoying a quiet country retreat can't be beat.
