The House Grounds: The house faces south and enjoys spectacular views over the village, surrounding countryside and distant Esterel mountains.

The property lies in the heart of Seillans old town, over looking both the Place-de-la-Republic and Place-du-Thouron. The Place-du-Thouron is home to ‘La Gloire de Mon Pere’ restaurant, a boulangerie and a small epicerie. The Place-de-la-Republic is the principal village square and provides space for boules and car parking. As the principal village meeting place, the Place-de-la-Republic hosts various village events throughout the year, such as; a small weekly farmers market, occasional antique fairs and the annual ‘Bastille Day’ celebration. As you would expect of such a central location in the old town, some noise from village life and celebration is inevitable at times.
