The hot summer of 2018
We enjoyed our vacation in Seillans. Unfortunately the many stairs were not suitable for my husband who has back problems. We did have a good family reunion. The heat was somewhat a problem for the ones without air conditioning in their rooms. Enjoyed the summer kitchen. Some of the lights there never worked.
We are delighted that you had a good family reunion and enjoyed Seillans. We are quite proud of what we provide and are always happy to welcome back returning guests.
There are stairs around the property but , in fact, we are quite level compared to other properties in the area built as they are on some rather steep slopes. As you know, we are on one level from the kitchen of the main house, through the dining room right to the other side of the summer kitchen with just two steps up to the boule court
Yes, as you indicated in your heading, 2018 is proving to be a near record-breaking hot summer all over Europe (including England!). In normal conditions our guests using the fans provided in the three non air-conditioning bedrooms find that they work well. But it has been quite an exceptional year.
We do wish you had contacted us about the problems with some of the summer kitchen lighting. The dimmers are eccentric but we could have advised you on how to make them behave. As soon as we read your review we contacted our current guests in case there was a particular unexpected problem needing our electrician to have a look; but they report that all is well and that all the lights are working .
Hopefully, you will find your way back to us in Seillans sometime in the future.

Beyond our best expectations
For half a year we had been looking forward to our holiday in this amazing house. And it was even better than we had expected. Definitely hope to be there again some day!
Thank you so much for the wonderful stay.
Thanks for such a lovely review, you were a great guest! We really want our visitors to have a wonderful time and enjoy the property as much as we do when we are there.....
An Utter Delight - book now!
I cannot recommend this property enough. We have just returned from two weeks of complete bliss. We were a party of 12 covering every age from 4 to 85 and every single person had a holiday that suited them down to the ground.
Denise and Scott are the perfect hosts, ensuring that every aspect of our stay was perfect, warm, welcoming and relaxing. It honestly was like staying in the house of dear friends. The property is wonderful, beautifully decorated, child friendly and a with real, fully equipped cooks kitchen - two kitchens in fact with the amazing outdoors area - something you rarely find in holiday lets.
The gardens are idyllic, peaceful and completely secluded, the pool is large and deep, perfect for keeping cool and relaxing or indeed for keeping four energetic boys entertained all day! Also the comfiest sunbeds I have ever encountered in all my year of holidaying- and more than enough for everyone ensuring no fights!
Bedrooms are cool (all with fans for those particularly hot provencal nights), simply yet tastefully decorated and the annexe/cottage is a great addition for those who like to sleep in and not get woken up by rowdy youngsters.
From a well stocked collection of bestsellers, thrillers and literary reads, through jigsaws, board games (scrabble and scrabble dictionary!) boules court and a fabulous selection of pool toys, this home has everything any family would need to keep everyone happy.
A short (5 min?) drive from the picturesque village of Seillans with cafes, restaurants and a local supermarket, and a 15 min drive from Fayence with a large hypermarket you'll be spoilt for choice with food whether you want to eat out or cook for yourself, and with all of the various terraces and tables back at the house you could eat in a different position every night, with a different gorgeous view, and never need to eat out at all!
Jaques, Valerie and Nadine who help look after the house were all friendly and always on hand to help or answer a question, this is a home where you will be taken care of.
To top off your break I would recommend a day at least at Lac du Saint Cassien, (arrive early for parking) swimming, pedaloes, floating obstacle courses and great lunches.
For a truly memorable, relaxing and utterly delightful Provencale getaway, you will not find a better choice.
Thank you Denise and Scott, a holiday to remember
Thank you for such a good review. We are so pleased that you and your family enjoyed yourselves so much.
Hopefully, we will see you again?
Very best wishes Scott & Denise
Perfection in Provence
Where to begin?! Denise and Scott's fabulous home in Seillans was everything and more we could have asked for. From the classic yet updated French decor to the beautiful property with a full-sized pool, our stay was true perfection from start to finish!
The fully equipped indoor and outdoor kitchens and living areas provided ample space for our family of nine to cook and lounge about comfortably. We especially loved the large outdoor dining table where we could sit, talk, relax and eat for hours on end.
Our days began with the most perfect croissants and pastries from La Gourmandine (thank you, Denise, for recommending this wonderful boulangerie), enjoyed poolside while planning our day's adventures.
Out favorite day trips included hiking through les Gorges de Verdon and enjoying a spectacular cooking class at the world renowned Chateau de Berne (an hours' drive from Seillans). Highly recommended!
Denise and Scott suggested lovely dining spots, our favorites being Chez Hugo and Hotel des Deux Rocs, both located in the charming village of Seillans, which was a short walk/drive from the property.
Thank you Denise and Scott for sharing your wonderful home with us. We are already planning our next visit!
Thank you so much for the great review. You were perfect guests. We love it when people enjoy our house and the area as much as we do.
Wonderful place to enjoy southern Provence
We spent only one week in this lovely property and wish we could have spent the whole summer! The main house is large and comfortable and loaded with charm. The guest house is well-maintained and also quite comfortable. (The abundance of bath and beach towels was very much appreciated!) Our kids found the upstairs attic bedrooom a little too warm and stuffy, but with room for six in the other 3 bedrooms, sleeping arrangements were not a problem for us. And having 3 nicely renovated full bathrooms was very convenient. But the best part of this property is what is outside--the garden is simply beautiful with lots of space and activities for everyone (soccer nets, petanque court, swing set, benches for reading) and the outdoor kitchen with its large sitting/dining areas was wonderful. The pool seemed to always get sun which warmed the water but the many large trees provided welcome shade for the pool-side chairs. The nearby village of Seillans is a real treat to visit and our kids adored the facilities of Lac St-Cassien less than 30 minutes away. Denise and Scott could not have been easier to communicate with and responded immediately to any questions or concerns we had. Overall a highly recommended A++ property!
Could not have been better. AMAZING, special place.
We rented this home and the guest cottage for our family of four (two adults, one baby and one toddler), my husband's sister and her husband and toddler daughter and my husband's parents. It was FABULOUS. First of all, they have the most amazing taste - the entire home is decorated in this gorgeous french country style, with an amazing attention to detail. The kitchen (both inside and outdoor summer kitchen) are a true chef's dream, fully equipped. We did oysters, squid, grilled on both the gas and charcoal grill. The bathrooms all have both a fabulous bathtub and shower - the showers are tall and super comfortable. Strong wifi (a must) made the stay so pleasant. English TV if your kids need some TV time while you sip your coffee on the patio. The pool is amazing and has an alarm if you are concerned about the kids. Even little details like the sheets on the beds were amazingly comfortable. The grounds are breathtaking with a swing set and lush grass to enjoy while they run around. Denise and Scott think of EVERYTHING and are perfect hosts. And while you feel totally secluded and away from the world there are a few villages really close by where you can get anything you need. It was nothing short of perfect and I hope we can return one day!!!
Please note that in the high season both the main house and the cottage have to be taken together; this period is defined as the beginning of June to the end of August 2015. A deposit of 25% of the rental total is required to secure a booking. The remainder is due eight weeks before the start date of the booked period together with a returnable 'security' deposit of £600
