Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
The house is detached and stands in 2500 square metres of land. Because we are situated in the Massif des Maures hills, the land is set on 4 tiers, with the house on the 2nd tier and the pool on the 3rd tier, this allows the property magnificent, uninterrupted views of the valley and is not overlooked.
There is a beautiful infinity swimming pool, certainly one of the main features of the villa. This is quite deep though and there is not a shallow end for young children so bouyancy aids are important.
Lac de St Cassien has a water park and a bird sanctuary and beautiful walks and is only 30 mins by car. You will pass the other 4 "villages perches, (Seillans being the 5th) of Fayence, Tourettes, Callian and Montauroux on the way.
There is golf at the two world class golf courses at Terre Blanche with-in 30 minutes drive from the villa.
There are several famous Mediterranean beaches in easy reach by car. For example Mandelieu-La Napoules; Fréjus; St Raphael; Cannes; Ste Maxime and St Tropez (for St Tropez we strongly recommend during summer time to take the ferry from St Raphaël rather than driving). Another fantastic place to visit is Les Iles de Lerrins, Cannes - Small islands off the beach of Cannes which can be reached by public ferry or sailing boat.Cannes is just 35km away, 35km to Frejus and St Rapahel and 50km to St Tropez.
Cannes is a busy but extremely glamorous beach, wonderful for people watching, as is St Tropez. Frejus and St Raphael are quieter and more family friendly. Juan le Pins is also 40km away and has many private beach areas with waiter service.
Please refer to website for further information.
It is a family home, but because of the steep hills and the terraces, it must be mentioned that children must not be left unsupervised.
Also, though we have said that it will sleep a maximum of 8 people, there are enough beds to cater for 11 people. we find that this would be less comfortable so I have put a maximum of 8 for comfort and space.

Down a set of steps you will find the feature of the villa, the infinity pool.
The pool has an electric cover that when properly secured will stand the weight of a small child and we recommend that you close this when not using the pool and is a legal requirement in France to avoid accidents around the pool. (Please be aware of high drops as the area is on terraces.)
There are a number of Olive trees in the garden as well as a fig tree and blackberry bushes, so depending on the time of the year, fresh fruit is available to eat with your breakfast or lunch.

From the lower square, Seillans stretches up through narrow, cobblestone streets that snake between ancient buildings and picturesque squares to the beautiful Saint Léger church at the top. At the Place du Thouron, the ancient stone fountain is surrounded by al-fresco restaurant tables.

Lac St Cassien is closer to the house if you don't want to drive to the beach. It has beautiful walks and is very safe for children for swimming and pedaloes.
