We had a wonderful time at the location. Thanks a lot, Sebastian!
A peaceful & relaxing spring holiday in Provence in an amazing environment. Easily accessible from St. Raphael or Nice (below-hour drive by car). 18th century stone villa furnished with taste and open fire place offering a spectacular view on the countryside. The perfect weather for trips to surrounding sites in the Var region. Or maybe just spending time in the beautiful, enchanted garden shaded by olive trees next to the pool that overlooks the valley...
A wonderful house in a beautiful place; sitting amongst olive terraces, with a fine vista looking east over wooded Provencal hills with no other house or road in sight. Also, it’s set in a clearing in the woods at the end of a very long drive so is very quiet and completely private, but not isolated, the hilltop village of Seillans is a 15 minute drive away and has a really excellent restaurant on its cobbled square.
The house itself is comfortable, well equipped, elegant and the owner is pleasant and helpful. It is special, and we couldn’t have been happier there.
This our second visit to this villa, which is unprecedented for us. If you like rural and quiet, but the luxury of a well appointed house and wonderful pool with lovely views, then this is it. The only disturbance you will get will be the very discrete pool cleaner once per week, the drifting gliders and the occasional sound of various friendly wildlife. You can walk into Seillans (typical hill top town), which takes about 40 minutes, so you are not completely cut off from civilisation. There is a Michelin star restaurant there, which is very good (and not too expensive). The walk is through the ancient trees that surround the villa for miles and is well worth doing. You are in easy reach of Monte Carlo, Antibes, Nice etc and you have all the amenities that you would need within a relatively short drive. The 'road' to the villa is a hoot, so best leave the Lamborghini at home.... the little Peugeot that we had coped admirably. Importantly Sebastian is the perfect owner and gentleman - always responds to emails and is extremely helpful. We will be going back again.
