Great villa for a familiar vacations

  • 5 of 5

Villa Seillans is a great place for a relaxing vacation with family or friends.

- The outside area is a gift for eyes and nose: A great view of beautiful lavender, roses and shade-giving trees.

Three hammocks invite you to relax while reading a good book and having a refreshing drink. Alternatively, you can choose to hang out on one of the sun loungers near the pool or meet as a group in the lounge area. The more active vacationists may find a teammate to play volleyball, petanque or badminton; or go for a run outside.

- The apartment is spacious and all rooms are well equipped. The kitchen, however, is superior: All different kinds of pans, cooking utensils and large working top.

- There´s no need of bringing a book - At villa seillans you´ll find a large selection of books in english or dutch as well as interesting travel guides for the region (and beyond).

- Good to know for young parents: Especially for babys and small children villa seillans offers a lot of different toys (e.g. duplo, music games, water toys). So no need to bring anything...

Highly recommended for families

  • 5 of 5

We were there with our four daughters, son-in-law and grandson. Room enough. We visited twice before. It was remarkable how much had been invested in the mean time. Completely new bathrooms, air-conditioning in the master-bedroom a.o.. It was the end of the season, which increases the chance that wear and tear is noticeable. Except for a small problem with a sunscreen, which was fixed immediately, we could have been the first visitors of the season. We had planned to go out for dinner often. In the end we went only three times because we were simply happy where we were.

Lovely villa, We´ll be back!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay, the inside is beautifully decorated and the outside area is perfectly equipped. We found everything we needed for our family holiday (7 Adults and a toddler) and even more. The Weber BBQ and the sport equipment were great extras we had not expected. Due to the numeral hammocks and lounge chairs there was no fighting about the best place around the pool. The surroundings were peaceful and quiet.

Correspondence with the owners was great and our two week vacation seemed way to short.

We definitely will come back!

100% satisfied

  • 5 of 5

You can rent Villa Seillans with confidence, as it is an understatement to say that this would be just any holiday villa. Villa Seillans is a fully furnished home for about 10+ people. Many toys for indoor- and outdoor fun, large pool, table tennis, petanque court etc. Good quality of all six double beds, excellent !! Enough bedding / linens and closet spaces. Windows with screens and shutters. Villa Seillans is ideal for two families, as the basement is a fully furnished apartment with private entrance, bathroom, living room and bedroom. For rentals of 2 weeks an interim change of towels and linen and cleaning, as well as pool maintenance. The villa is protected by an automatic opening and closing gate. (with plenty of keys). Fixed air conditioning in the bedroom on the south, sufficient mobile air conditioning for other rooms. Mega big garden with a diversity of flora with an automatic watering system. Seillans is located about 20 min. from the A8 (all major cities well and easily accessible). We have spend 14 days at Villa Seillans and enjoyed this super home for 100%. Merci Hilde and Eddy. XX

100% okey!!!

  • 4 of 5

Villa Seillans U kunt dit huis met een gerust hart huren hoor want het is een understatement dat dit een vakantiewoning zou zijn. Villa Seillans is een compleet ingericht woon-leefhuis voor circa 10+ personen. Veel speelgoed voor binnen - en buitenshuis/zwembad ( o.a. tennistafel, jeu de boules). Goede kwaliteit van alle zes tweepersoonsbedden, heerlijk. Zeer ruim voldoende bedden/linnengoed en kastruimtes. Ramen met horren en luiken. Villa Seillans is ideaal voor bv. twee gezinnen want in het souterrain bevind zich nml een volledig ingericht apt. met eigen opgang, een badkamer, woon- en slaapkamer. Bij huur van 2 weken een tussentijdse verschoning en cleaning, alsmede een verzorging van het zwembad. De villa is beveiligd dmv een automatisch openend en sluitend hek. ( fijn, voldoende sleutels). Vaste airco in de slaapkamer op het zuiden, voldoende mobiele airco's voor de overige ruimtes. Mega grote tuin met een diversiteit aan flora met een automatisch bewateringsysteem. Seillans ligt circa 20 min. van de A8( alle grote steden goed en eenvoudig bereikbaar)

Wij hebben 14 dagen voor de volle100% genoten van dit super huis. Merci Hilde en Eddy. XX

Nice outside area, disappointing villa

  • 3 of 5

This is a well marketed villa on this web site that does not meet expectations. No airconditioning in two of the three bedrooms. Bedroom 2&3 are small, claustrophobic and airless. Bedroom 3 has two single beds pushed together, so one person has to climb over the other to get in and out of bed.

English TV channels don't work -weak or no signal

Levels of cleanliness leave a lot to be desired, the kitchen work surfaces were dirty and the cupboard below the sink was disgusting.

The whole interior had the feel of unloved 1970's style. The outside could do with a coat of paint.

Traffic noise from the main Fayence road was considerable, and the neighbours were constantly mowing their lawns, and their dogs barking. On the first weekend we were subjected to loud disco music til 2am!

When the pool is being filled, no water in the upstairs shower room. Nowhere to put your soap or shampoo in the shower.

Worst of all, no cleaning service halfway through our two week stay. Just clean bed linen and towels. Unacceptable for the price paid and never experienced before in any villa rented in France. We spent more than half a day cleaning the place ourselves.

There are many better villas in the area, I know, I have stayed in them!

Owner's Response: We accept this 3 out of 5 star rating, but don't think the comments are fair, and we like to provide our comments: 1) Our website mentions that only the master bedroom facing South is air conditioned, so not sure why our Guest expects the other rooms to be. 2) The two other bedrooms are normal size with windows, with enough space to sleep comfortable and store clothes. 3) The configuration of the 3rd bedroom and bed is also shown on the photos => on these first 3 topics, we are transparent and open on our website (with description and photos) of what to expect. 4) In our 7 years of renting out this villa we never had any complaints about the cleanliness of the villa (evident from previous reviews); our local caretaker takes pride in her work, and we are baffled by the use of the word "disgusting". Note that the Guest left his garbage and recycling material behind, while instructions to dispose of these (upon departure) are clearly mentioned in our welcome guide. 5) The bed linen and towels are changed weekly, with a light cleaning of the bathrooms. This extra service is not always offered in a self-catering villa. 6) TV reception is normally good (weather permitting) with several English channels; we cannot further comment on this. 7) We will provide a soap/shampoo holder in the upstairs shower room, and have the toilet checked. Small mechanical defects do happen, and should be raised to our caretaker so she can take action then and there. 8) During weekly top-up of the pool, to replace the evaporating water, the water pressure in the house drops upstairs; this is common in rural France. 9) The comment: "unloved 70's style decor" is personal; the decor is clearly shown on many photos on the website (shouldn't this have been noticed at time of the booking? 10) During high season, some traffic noise can be heard from the local road (600 meters); none of our previous guests considered this a nuisance. 11) The same for “lawn mowers non-stop”. In summer people enjoy the outdoors and tend to their gardens. 12) When staying in the countryside it can be expected to hear occasional barking of dogs, as well as other sounds of nature. 13) During high season there are many festivals and parties in France, and music carries far in the country. We have experienced this occasionally, but never till past 22:00 PM. Of course this could have been an isolated case, which is beyond our control. We accept the Guest opinion and hope he enjoys another villa in the future
