Overview

Seillans Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

6 bed-rooms, 4 bath-rooms, sleeps 12 people

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.

Elegant, charming, luxurious

  • 5 of 5

This is the most luxurious and elegant villa we have ever stayed in. It is decorated and furnished in superb taste and the owners have added so many little touches that you really do feel that you're staying with friends. From the moment we arrived, we were charmed by the house and its surroundings - a beautiful and unspoilt wooded hillside teeming with birds and wildlife. Although located just a few minutes' drive from Seillans, you nevertheless feel completely private once you've arrived at the villa.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Lou Lin dei Sacy is a really great holiday house, a lovely old rambling building in the hills near Seiilans, a beautiful medieval hillside village. We spent two idyllic weeks here, soaking up the sunshine by the pool, and enjoying all the luxurious ambience of the house and extensive gardens. It is beautifully furnished and decorated in a rustic stylish way, with very well equipped kitchens, and lots of thoughtful flourishes and touches,. We had everything we needed and more to relax, eat, sleep and have fun, including a boules pitch, outdoor kitchen, very high quality beds and furnishings, plentiful hot water, and lots of towels. We spent a lot of time in the pool, and there was plenty of comfortable pool furniture and cushions. The owners obviously have invested a lot of time and love into this house and garden, as everything from the huge pots of flowers and herbs, to the outdoor sitting area with sofas and fireplace, to the collections of Provençal pottery and paintings, shouts out their efforts and passion for the place. I would have no hesitation to recommending this house to anyone wanting a gorgeous authentic Provençal holiday home.

Idyllic farmhouse and village

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully furnished and supremely comfortable. Our best location yet with Owners Direct. The pool garden and outside dinning were a great success with our extended family. The village had all we needed with excellent restaurants,(especially Chez Hugo and Les Deux Rocs), boulangerie and general store. The local bar is was also popular for an early coffee. Local vineyards provided excellent Rose and owners couldn't have been more helpful and delightful. Loved every minute.
