About the property

Lou Pin dei Sace

Beautiful old farmhouse on two acres of terraced olive groves. The main house has 4 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The master bedroom has a large en suite bathroom, with an antique French roll top bath plus seperate shower. Excellent new kitchen with small breakfast table, La Canche range cooker with two ovens and five burners. There is an open plan sitting/dining room with French doors opening onto a wonderful, large summer kitchen. You can eat at an old marble tale which can seat 12- we have a gas-fired BBQ, a second dish-washer and another fridge. A large seating area around the fire place is ideal for cool Spring and Autumn evenings. Lovely extended gardens; willow trees surround the pool and give perfect natural shade for hot summer days. We have built a good size boule court adjacent to the summer kitchen ( boules provided!).

There is also a smaller garden house, which can sleep a further 4. I double bedroom and 1 twin. A charming kitchen and sitting room with own satellite TV.

The village: Seillans is officially rated as one of the most beautiful villages in France. It has a population of some 1,600 people with narrow, winding medieval streets.There are excellent restaurants. Les Deux Rocs with a beautiful outside terrace. Chez Hugo chef owner , with delightful imaginative cooking. Gloire de Mon Pere with tables under the plain trees in the village square . Hermance Caro, now runs the Michelin starred Castellaras which is between Seillans and Fayence.

Seillans has a post office with a 24-hour cash point machine two boulangeries,chemist, newsagent and pizzeria, all five minutes from the house by car. There is a medium-sized supermarket,Huit A Huit,at the entrance to Seillans.

The area: Our village is forty five minutes drive from Nice airport and Cannes is thirty five minutes. In the high season the car trains come to Frejus, the nearest point on the coast from house, perhaps twenty-five minutes. Twenty minutes to one side of Seillans brings you to Bargemon, about ten minutes the other way takes you to Fayence, larger than Seillans with a large hyper-market and one of the best boulangeries in the Var and a twice weekly market.

Recreational facilities: The village has excellent tennis courts and there are a wide choice of golf corses in the area. There is a fantastic golf complex, Terre Blanche, between us and Lac St cassien;15 minutes away. We have another golf course near Le Muy about 25 Minutes away. Lac St Cassien, twenty-five minutes away, is a large inland lake with beaches, pedalos and lake-side restaurants. Fayence airport is one of the leading glider airports in Europe (and has a great value for money restaurant). We have two superb vineyards ten minutes from us: Domaine des Selves and the, multi-award winning, Chateau d'Iris.

An Utter Delight - book now!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this property enough. We have just returned from two weeks of complete bliss. We were a party of 12 covering every age from 4 to 85 and every single person had a holiday that suited them down to the ground.

Denise and Scott are the perfect hosts, ensuring that every aspect of our stay was perfect, warm, welcoming and relaxing. It honestly was like staying in the house of dear friends. The property is wonderful, beautifully decorated, child friendly and a with real, fully equipped cooks kitchen - two kitchens in fact with the amazing outdoors area - something you rarely find in holiday lets.

The gardens are idyllic, peaceful and completely secluded, the pool is large and deep, perfect for keeping cool and relaxing or indeed for keeping four energetic boys entertained all day! Also the comfiest sunbeds I have ever encountered in all my year of holidaying- and more than enough for everyone ensuring no fights!

Bedrooms are cool (all with fans for those particularly hot provencal nights), simply yet tastefully decorated and the annexe/cottage is a great addition for those who like to sleep in and not get woken up by rowdy youngsters.

From a well stocked collection of bestsellers, thrillers and literary reads, through jigsaws, board games (scrabble and scrabble dictionary!) boules court and a fabulous selection of pool toys, this home has everything any family would need to keep everyone happy.

A short (5 min?) drive from the picturesque village of Seillans with cafes, restaurants and a local supermarket, and a 15 min drive from Fayence with a large hypermarket you'll be spoilt for choice with food whether you want to eat out or cook for yourself, and with all of the various terraces and tables back at the house you could eat in a different position every night, with a different gorgeous view, and never need to eat out at all!

Jaques, Valerie and Nadine who help look after the house were all friendly and always on hand to help or answer a question, this is a home where you will be taken care of.

To top off your break I would recommend a day at least at Lac du Saint Cassien, (arrive early for parking) swimming, pedaloes, floating obstacle courses and great lunches.

For a truly memorable, relaxing and utterly delightful Provencale getaway, you will not find a better choice.

Thank you Denise and Scott, a holiday to remember

Wonderful place to enjoy southern Provence

  • 5 of 5

We spent only one week in this lovely property and wish we could have spent the whole summer! The main house is large and comfortable and loaded with charm. The guest house is well-maintained and also quite comfortable. (The abundance of bath and beach towels was very much appreciated!) Our kids found the upstairs attic bedrooom a little too warm and stuffy, but with room for six in the other 3 bedrooms, sleeping arrangements were not a problem for us. And having 3 nicely renovated full bathrooms was very convenient. But the best part of this property is what is outside--the garden is simply beautiful with lots of space and activities for everyone (soccer nets, petanque court, swing set, benches for reading) and the outdoor kitchen with its large sitting/dining areas was wonderful. The pool seemed to always get sun which warmed the water but the many large trees provided welcome shade for the pool-side chairs. The nearby village of Seillans is a real treat to visit and our kids adored the facilities of Lac St-Cassien less than 30 minutes away. Denise and Scott could not have been easier to communicate with and responded immediately to any questions or concerns we had. Overall a highly recommended A++ property!

Could not have been better. AMAZING, special place.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home and the guest cottage for our family of four (two adults, one baby and one toddler), my husband's sister and her husband and toddler daughter and my husband's parents. It was FABULOUS. First of all, they have the most amazing taste - the entire home is decorated in this gorgeous french country style, with an amazing attention to detail. The kitchen (both inside and outdoor summer kitchen) are a true chef's dream, fully equipped. We did oysters, squid, grilled on both the gas and charcoal grill. The bathrooms all have both a fabulous bathtub and shower - the showers are tall and super comfortable. Strong wifi (a must) made the stay so pleasant. English TV if your kids need some TV time while you sip your coffee on the patio. The pool is amazing and has an alarm if you are concerned about the kids. Even little details like the sheets on the beds were amazingly comfortable. The grounds are breathtaking with a swing set and lush grass to enjoy while they run around. Denise and Scott think of EVERYTHING and are perfect hosts. And while you feel totally secluded and away from the world there are a few villages really close by where you can get anything you need. It was nothing short of perfect and I hope we can return one day!!!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us. We had the most perfect time and have completely fallen in love with it. I don’t know where to start. It was a complete home from home with everything provided: no having to buy ready ground pepper from the supermarket as you normally do when you rent; the SKY and WIFI meant we didn’t miss Wimbledon and were able to use our laptops to keep in touch with the world. It is a cook’s paradise, with every piece of equipment any chef would need. We read your cookbooks in the morning, shopped in the markets and indulged in creating gourmet meals in the evening in the beautiful summer kitchen. What a delight the summer kitchen is, being able to sit in such tasteful comfort, with everything (drinks fridge and ice cream fridge) to hand. The gardens are also lovely – so tranquil with gorgeous planting, not all hard landscaping like you get in many villas. And so many comfy seating areas in shady nooks and crannies to get the books read. I could go on and on but just wanted you to know that we all felt we couldn’t have found anywhere more perfect. I trust we took good care of your home, and we hope to return many times. We have already been discussing whether we could squeeze in another week in the autumn.

Douceur de Vivre

  • 5 of 5

Stylish living. Lovely old house decorated with flair in a large and beautiful garden. We loved the boule court and pool and having meals in the stunning au vent. It is much more than the usual holiday let. It gives us what we go to the South of France for - a taste of the douceur de vivre. And up the road in Seillans there are half a dozen places giving a taste of good French cooking. And there's the Bar Charlot - a great place to watch the French being French. Loved it all. Thanks.

Villa de Booij

  • 5 of 5

Vanaf het allereerste contact met de eigenaar tot en met de terugbetaling van de borgsom alles zeer correct en uitermate plezierig verlopen. Sfeervol aangekleed en ingericht huis op een prachtige locatie met een mooie tuin, overdekt terras en buitenkeuken, geheel conform de omschrijving, alles erop en eraan en meer dan voldoende privacy. Ideaal voor een groep vrienden, al dan niet met kinderen, of, zoals in ons geval, voor een familievakantie. Dichtbij een aantal leuke oude stadjes zoals Seillans, Fayence en Bargemon. Niet buiten de deur gegeten, daarvoor was het huis gewoonweg te gezellig en te goed geoutilleerd. Absolute aanrader!
