About The Owner

My companion and I spend most of our year here in Seillans with our dog Hugo, Border Terrier. We travel to the west of France where my daughter lives and to south Germany where my son and his family live, so we are not always in residence. At the time of writing we have just finished harvesting the olives from the trees in the garden and have collected our oil from the mill in Seillans. Very satisfying to have our own olive oil!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1990

Why The Owner chose Esterel - Fayence

I have lived in this beautiful corner of France for over 25 years having first visited the area in 1970. From then until purchasing our first house in Seillans in 1985 we came every year to the same rental property,just could not do without our "French fix"! Although the surrounding area has changed over the years, with many more facilities, Seillans has remained remarkably unspoilt and the beautiful village "places" with their fountains and restaurants under the plane trees make this a very special village. The close but peaceful proximity of this property to the village makes walking to and from one of the local restaurants on a balmy evening a real pleasure. Seillans is still 'the' place for me and my family and now my adult grandchildren love to come here too with their friends.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is a 5-10 minute walk from the village of Seillans where you will find all daily food requirements, doctor, baker, chemist, dentist etc. It is not remote but is secluded and private.

This house is our principal home and it is furnished with well-loved furniture and artefacts. It is not a 'rental property' as such and I think that makes a difference judging by the number of returning tenants. Over the years I have met some lovely and interesting people who remain in touch, and, in some cases, have helped them buy their own properties here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Once again we have been able to recharge our batteries in your lovely house and surroundings - thank you so much for letting us have the use of it.

We loved the studio - perfect for a few days peace and quiet.

A little corner of paradise.

Secret summerparadise

  • 5 of 5

This little garden studio is our private paradise. It is surrounded by the hills of Seillans, but in walking distance from Seillans center, a really beautiful small village. We have breakfast and dinner on our terrace and relax at the wonderful pool with view over Seillans.

From here we start our tours to Nice, Antibes, Cannes ... and our hunting for antiques on the " brocantes " of the PACA.

Last but not least the houseowner Linda is lovely, very helpfull and a perfect host. We thank her very much for the two magnificent weeks we had and send love to Rose and Hugo!!!

Special interest holidays:

Fishing on Lac St Cassien, golf at Terre Blanche ten minutes away, gliding at one of the best gliding centres in France. Mountain walking, bird watching.


The beaches of Cannes, St. Raphael, St. Tropez, Port Grimaud are all within 1 hours drive (traffic permitting).


Nice airport 45 minutes drive The railway stations of St. Raphael or Cannes are about 1 hour away from Seillans. Both have hire car facilities close by. If you are driving down the exit from the A8 autoroute is about 30 or 40 mins from Seillans. A car is recommended in order to make the most of your holiday to visit the any interesting areas, markets, museums etc.


Seillans lies midway between Grasse and Draguignan, both about 30km away. Aix en Provence - just over 1 hour. Monaco just over 1 hour. Italy (Ventimiglia market) 1.1/2 hours. The coastal towns of Cannes, St. Maxime, St. Raphael, St Tropez are 1 to 2 hours drive away in summer traffic! You can drive to St. Raphael and take the ferry to St. Tropez in the morning and back again in the afternoon to avoid the traffic in high summer.

Further Details:

There is a cash dispensing machine outside the post office in Seillans. Credit Agricole bank is open some afternoons/mornings each week. Fayence has many major banks and cash dispensers. You can enjoy a summer evening walk and dinner under the plane trees at one of the local restaurants in Seillans. During 2 weeks of August there is a music festival based in Seillans (Musique Cordiale). This international group of musicians and singers gives a series of concerts in Seillans and the surrounding villages. The last weekend of July is the Fete de Seillans with music and 'aioli' (garlic mayonnaise with cod, boiled potatoes, carrots etc. - a provencal speciality!) served in some of the village restaurants. You may be lucky enough to be here when one of the local art galleries has a 'vernissage' evening. The neighbouring villages also have their village 'Fetes' with dancing in the square in Fayence in September and there are many concerts in the local churches throughout the year. More music in October each year if you are fans of String Quartets - details can be found at the Tourist Offices in any of the Pays de Fayence villages. Everything quietens down during the winter months which inevitably means that not all restaurants are open all the week. Those wishing to take a short break at this off-season time might be advised to arrange their visits from Thursday to Monday to be sure of finding one of the many good restaurants open. There is a small supermarket and bakery in Seillans.
