Beamed living room offers Satellite TV, DVD, Apple TV and digital music system. Table tennis and table football provided in ground floor reception area. Attached single garage, guarantees local parking.

The House Grounds: The house faces south and enjoys spectacular views over the village, surrounding countryside and distant Esterel mountains. The half acre terraced garden is pleasantly planted with flowering shrubs, fruit trees and lawns. The garden is complemented by several paved terraces, which are each furnished with a mix of hardwood sun chairs and loungers. The shady external dining terrace is furnished with a 3m hardwood table and teak chairs and equipped with a large Argentinian charcoal BBQ. An 9.5m x 4.5m swimming pool, with alarm, is also set in a sunny terrace.

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.

The house interior is full of character, attractively and comfortably decorated in a mixture of local antiques and modern furnishings. The floors are set in marble or old Provencal tiles. The accommodation is on five levels, with half-landings between them.

First Floor Living Areas: The kitchen, dining room and conservatory are located on the first floor. The kitchen is approached from steps externally and has a small shaded terrace.

The walls are hung with a collection of Provencal prints. From the dining room a comfortable and light [triple aspect] conservatory/ seating room is reached, which has stunning views over the old town.

Third Floor Living Room: A large beamed living room is located on the third floor level. The room is double aspect with twin windows overlooking the garden and pool, with superb uninterrupted views to the mountains behind the village. Separate double french doors provide access to an elevated terrace with views of, and gated access [via steps] to, the garden and pool. The terrace contains teak table and chairs. A retractable awning can also be deployed to provide shade to this external area.

The living room is furnished with a modern large sofa suite, capable of seating 10 persons. The living room also contains a satellite television, Blu-ray DVD, Apple TV and digital music system.

A further window on the side elevation boasts beautiful views over the old town to the chateau. Leading off the main bedroom is a large family bathroom and further bedroom (2 single beds & cot) suitable for children. Please note; that the second bedroom is only accessible via the main ground floor suite.

On the second floor there are one double , one twin and one further (small) double bedrooms. These bedrooms are served by a modern bathroom with bath and shower.

Location description from owner

The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region

Seillans

Seillans is recognised as one of the most beautiful villages of France. Set in spectacular, unspoilt scenery, the 'perched' village is a harmonious collection of pink, pastel houses, steeply terraced slopes with a labyrinth of cobbled alleyways, squares, rustic portals and arches, still surrounded in part by it's fortified ramparts. Delightful fountains and 'lavoirs' are a feature of the village and are found in almost every street. All the facilities of the village are within a couple of minutes walk of the house, including patisseries, restaurants and bars. Whilst a haven of tranquillity and beauty, the village is less than 45 minutes from Nice and 25 minutes from Cannes. The beautiful beaches of Frejus and St Raphael are less than 45 minutes distant. Also easily accessible is the Gorge du Verdon (45 mins) and Lac St Cassien (10 mins). Seillans is also perfectly placed to widely explore the beauty of the Cote d' Azur and Provence, given its proximity to the A8 motorway.

Other Activities: The Owner also offers a bespoke, guided, holiday tour service for groups of family/friends using the house as the base.

Golf: Europe's most complete golf facility, Terre Blanche Golf Club has earned a position among the world's top-level golf destinations and is less than 15 mins from our house. With a mild year-round climate, Terre Blanche provides an unrivalled environment for improving your game.

Offering the ultimate in Provence golf, the club features two 18-hole, par-72 championship courses – Le Riou and Le Château – designed by golf legend Dave Thomas to make the most of the lush hills and valleys.

“Truly Excellent Property in fantastic location.”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2016

We have this morning left this glorious house busy discussing what we will do next time we are there! Three generation of Knowles 8 adults and 2 babies, plus a couple of extra friends who dropped in for 2 nights have had the most fun time imaginable. As previous reviewers have eloquently described the house provides ample space both to get together for long lazy meals and also time to get away and have some privacy. We loved the simple decor, practical furnishings, multiple eating areas, the terraces, the pool and the garden. Difficult to find words to describe beautiful Seillans. We tried 3 restaurants and loved them all, each with their own identity. We played boules and badminton. We failed to visit the lake or the coast or do anything constructive. Kate -our point of contact, friendly and efficient, was close at hand to answer questions and make life easy. We had a dream to rent a big house in the Alpes Maritime, invite our children and grandchildren and have fun in a special place. This house made that dream come true. To top it all our youngest daughter and boyfriend arrived to announce they were engaged to be married. Happy times.

“Perfect in every way”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2015

This was our fourth stay at this outstanding villa, and I've booked it again for number five. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Perfectly situated in the center of a charming village, steps from our favorite restaurant, overlooking the park where the villagers play petanque, the villa is spacious, full of character, features a sparkling pool and extensive grounds, along with an upstairs terrace and lower level terrace perfect for enjoying a glass of wine and an outdoor meal. We can't wait to go back!

“Wonderful house in beautiful Provencal town”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2015

Fantastic holiday destination in a glorious location. The house and garden/pool are wonderful with beautiful views all round. Great location to explore Provence, the mountains and the coast with lake swimming very close by. Several lovely restaurants and local shops right on the doorstep. Seillans is such a beautiful place and the house is in a great location with many lovely walks also nearby. I would highly recommend.

“Perfection in One Place”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2015

I have rented this villa three times now and next year I am booked in again. Honestly I don't want people to know how great it is or I will be without a week in the future. The history of the villa and village.. You feel part of the community. If you have a large family or a group of people it works out well. I bring culinary students to the South of France every year (This is my 22nd year) and this has been my villa of choice!

“Excellent house in perfect village”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2015

This was our second stay at Maison Hirondelles in Seillans and it was all as fabulous as we'd remembered it. The house is gorgeous, perfectly positioned, simply furnished but generously equipped, spacious and delightful, with a place for everything and everyone so that our extended cohort of teenagers and adults could spread out at will and come together for long and delicious lunches and dinners. The village is spectacularly pretty with practically everything you need on the doorstep. Long walks to the forest or short walks to the bar, equally popular. We can't wait to go again.

“Grande dame”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2015

The property was equipped with everything we needed to have a truly great experience in the French countryside. The bedrooms all comfortably furnished, with bathrooms on each sleeping level. The kitchen is small but serviceable. The grand table in the dining room and outdoor eating area more than compensate for that. If you need to escape from the rest of your group there are numerous little nooks to escape to. The art was specifically chosen to reflect the home and the local area. There was a vast library of travel guides that help you plan your days. From the hustle and bustle of Nice and Monte Carlo to white water rafting in Verdon Gorge. From thriving markets in the hilltop towns to hiking trails that link them. This property is a true Grande dame.
