Guestbook comments from the owner

Hoi Hilde en Eddy,

We zijn gesetteld en het voelde als thuiskomen. En wat is het mooi geworden!!! We vonden het al top maar dit is echt fantastisch. Wat een prachtige buitenkeuken! Heerlijk chil! En een nieuw bankstel! En het zwembad en de rest vd tuin! Echt prachtig!! En de kids nu al enthousiast van tafeltennis! Inmiddels competitie gestart! We konden al om half 12 terecht gisteren. Marcel had alles tip top voor elkaar! En we voelen ons weer welkom! Alles heerlijk verzorgd! We voelen jullie gastvrijheid. We gaan genieten komende drie weken! En we zullen goed op jullie huis passen, zoals we op ons eigenhuis passen. Wat ook helemaal top is; tegen betaling uiteraard, komt de schoonmaakster tussentijd nog een keer. Dat is voor mij echt een extra kadootje! Super dat dat kan! Kids genieten; genieten wij! Villa Seillans is voor ons ook het hoogtepunt vh jaar! Een rustpunt in de drukte vd dag!!

Fantastic complete villa

  • 5 of 5

Ons verblijf hier was met de kinderen en kleinkinderen. Het was een fantastische vakantie. De woning is compleet ! De buitenkeuken is het neusje van de zalm, zeker als je een hobbykok bent zoals ik.

De kinderen en kleinkinderen hebben hun reuze geamuseerd is het zwembad. Ook mag de je de omgeving niet vergeten, het dorpje Seillans met leuke terrasjes en restaurants. Op 30 minuten ben je aan de kust, Canne, Saint Tropez, St-Rafaël, ......

Supervakantie in een Superhuis

  • 5 of 5

Wij waren met 8 volwassenen en een kind van 1 jaar en hebben een geweldige vakantie gehad in dit mooie en bijzonder complete huis. Er was van alles aanwezig om het de gasten naar de zin te maken, zowel binnen als buiten: een groot zwembad, tafeltennistafel, voet- en volleybalfaciliteiten, petangue en een prachtige buitenkeuken. De baby kon zich op het grote terrras prima vermaken, zeker met het aanwezige speelgoed.

Goede tips voor uitstapjes zijn aanwezig. De plaatsen langs de kust, zoals St. Tropez, Cannes, Nice en ook Monaco, zijn goed te bereiken. In de nabije omgeving zijn leuke, Franse dorpjes met terrasjes, waar het altijd goed toeven is.

Het weer was prachtig, we hebben bijna alleen buiten geleefd, bij het zwembad, bij de mooie buitenkeuken, in de tuin en aan de fijne, grote tafel op het overdekte terras waar we met zijn allen ruimschoots tegelijk konden zitten.

Wij zouden graag nog eens een paar weken in dit fijne huis op deze mooie plek doorbrengen.

Owner's Response: Dear Rita and family, Thanks for the compliments. We strive to exceed our guest' expectations! So please to read that you had a great time. We like to welcome you again ! All the best, Eddy & Hilde ===== For our English speaking potential guests: ===== We stayed with 8 adults and one child of 1 year and had a great holiday in this beautiful and very complete house. There was everything to make the guests feel comfortable inside and outside: a large swimming pool, table tennis, foot- and volleyball area, a petangue court and a beautiful outdoor kitchen. The baby was having lots of fun in the big garden, especially with all the toys available. Various tips for day trips are present in the villa. The places along the coast, such as St. Tropez, Cannes, Nice and also Monaco, are well accessible. In the surrounding area are nice French villages with terraces, where it is always a pleasure to be. The weather was beautiful, we mostly just lived outside, by the pool, at the beautiful outdoor kitchen, in the garden and around the nice big table on the covered terrace where we could all sit together at the same time. We would like to spend a few weeks in this nice house again; in this beautiful place

Vacation house at its finest

  • 5 of 5

Once again the time spent at Villa Seillans was wonderful. The improvements made outside added to the enjoyment, for being able to cook outside - right next to the bar - does make it even harder to get stressed at all. The scenic views in the area, calm surroundings, well furnished house and beautiful outside area are all conducive to being completely relaxed within days of arriving. It ticks all the boxes: clean and well maintained as well as stress free (good appliances / organisation) and a marvellous location.

Does a superlative degree for perfect exist?

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect last year, now several things got better. The pool has been renovated. The outside barbecue is a gem. We rented mountain bikes (New Bike in Montauroux is a clear recommendation!) and enjoyed the surroundings (don't forget the helmet!). The house was in excellent condition. Small problems were immediately solved by Marcel, the housekeeper. 2017 has been booked.

Another amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

Been having amazing vacations at Villa Seillans since more than 4 years! Every year the outside and inside area are being improved and upgraded. House is clean, organised and tidy. The area around the villa is great for mountain biking, walking and exploring picturesque French villages.

Will be back next year!

Perfect venue for a family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us (aged 2 - 73) have spent a marvellous week at Villa Seillans. Beautifully situated in a quiet spot, the villa is well maintained and well equipped. We have rented many properties in France over the years, and none has been as well equipped as this one, a real home from home. It is spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. The recently refurbished barbecue area provided a superb setting for evening drinks. There was plenty to occupy us at the villa: pool (beautifully clean), table tennis, petanque, hammocks to relax in, for example. However, when we wanted to venture out, we were spoilt for choice; the villages of Seillans and Fayence were super. We tried two of the recommended restaurants, Castellaras & Chez Hugo, and the latter couldn't be faulted; the food and the service were excellent. Thank you, Eddy & Hilde, for the useful detailed information and for a most memorable stay in your lovely, highly recommended, villa.
