Why Shay Cunliffe chose Seillans
La Maison du Vieux Moulin was discovered by my parents during a family holiday in 1962! They fell madly in love with the property, the village and the location and started a lifelong, three generation relationship with this cherished house. 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.
What makes this House unique
One of our favorite features of La Maison du Vieux Moulin is its proximity to the beautiful old village of Seillans. We love the short morning walk into the village for coffee & croissants; we love the evening walk under the vibrant starry sky to enjoy an exceptional dinner at one of Seillans' excellent restaurants or concerts or fêtes.

Wonderful stay -- to be repeated!
This review is long overdue but although our stay at this lovely villa was in August, we are still reveling in the memories of our time at this wonderful house in Seillans.
The house is large and most comfortable, with fantastic views of the town of Seillans from the shaded front patio. The location, a short walk to the centre of the village, meant that we could leave the car at home. From the local pizza place, to the coffee and croissants at Bar Charlot to the gorgeous Gloire de Mon Pere restaurant, every meal we had in town was fantastic. We enjoyed the small shops in Seillans and I even got the best haircut of my life at Salon Carre Noir.
Day trip possibilities abound, but we most enjoyed staying in Seillans with the occasional outing to the market in neighboring Fayence. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the kitchen is very well equipped and we even attempted to bake our own brioche! The owner is extremely helpful and available by email and tel literally 24/7 when i couldn't figure out how to light the stove, which was much appreciated!
Can't rave enough!
Peaceful charm with pool and a stunning view
My girlfriend and I stayed in this beautiful old house for a week and had a wonderful time. The terrace overlooking the village is a spectacular place for evening meals, and the pool is perfect during the day time. The house is cool inside and the kitchen extremely well equipped. Seillans is the perfect summer hideaway with two exceptional restaurants within walking distance of the house, and several others a short drive away. All in all an ideal Provencal holiday!
An Idyllic Location
My partner and I just spent two weeks at the Vieux Moulin and we had a lovely romantic getaway. It is secluded, on a large property with olive trees and a pool, yet a short walk to the charming village of Seillans. Our favorite memory will be of dining on the terrace with a wonderful view of the village. We used it as a base to visit many nearby villages and towns in Provence and the Riviera - some with world-class museums. I highly recommend it!
Lovely house in the Provence you imagine
My family had a wonderful two weeks at La Maison. We had as many as 5 adults and 5 kids there at times, and the house comfortably accommodated all of us. It never felt the least bit crowded. The house is a charming, old, authentic place surrounded by olive trees and a pleasant, short walk to Seillans. Each bedroom is bright and spacious (there are effectively 5 bedrooms, though one can only be reached through another). The thick stone walls keep the house cool even on hot days. We ate for the most part on the wisteria-shaded porch, enjoying the spectacular view of Seillans in the distance. In the early evenings, we often walked to the village and picked apples and figs for the kids from a neighbor's trees that reached into the road. Seillans itself is the prettiest village in the region. Mons, Bargemon, Fayence, Tourettes, St. Cezaire, St. Paul, Bagnols-en-Foret, all a short drive away, are charming, but Seillans stands out. As for logistics, the owner and the couple who work as local caretakers are unfailingly pleasant and a delight to work with. Highly recommend.
Happy Family, Glorious Surroundings, Wonderful Week
This was my third visit to La Maison du Vieux Moulin, all be it separated by 15 years ! This year I was accompanied by children and grandchildren and we all had a happy experience. The property and the village is as beautiful as I remembered;it did not disappoint. The house is spacious and comfortable, cool even in the heat and there was always enough hot water for the six of us. The kitchen has been modernized since my last visit and it is well equipped and functions well. The pool was enjoyed by all of us-especially the children. We ate most meals outside, under the wisteria arbor facing the breathtaking view of Seillans, ever changing with the light. A truly magical place.
