La Petite Clochette – David Shukla – 06 October 2019


The perfect location and villa for a relaxing holiday in the South of France We stayed at this beautiful villa for 2 weeks in July 2019. The villa exceeded our expectations. It is situated up a fairly steep hill about 10 minutes walk from the centre area of Seillans. The villa is very private, quite and secluded with extensive grounds. Fresh figs and mulberries were plentiful! The heated pool was fantastic and we did spend considerable amount of time in and around the pool with the children. The villa is very comfortable with excellent provisions. The downstairs bedroom and bathroom were perfect for us as we had our elderly Mum staying with us for part of the time. The verandah overlooking the hills was superb and the views often breathtaking. The 2 upstairs bedrooms were accessed by a narrow spiral staircase which was fine for us. We also enjoyed using the barbecue area outside and the boules pitch. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area. The villa is stocked with reading material and local leaflets of revelance. There is a supermarket in Seillans which is not too far to walk. There is a bigger supermarket a short drive away which has everything you could possible need. We enjoyed getting fresh pastries in the morning and bringing them back to the villa. There are several very good restaurants in the village and a couple of cafes/bars. There are also some art exhibitions and a tourist office. The two local vineyards were very welcoming and the olive oil estate and goats farm  (selling the tastiest cheese ever!) were also worth a visit. We don’t often consider returning to the same place again but I think we would happily return to La Petite Clochette in Seillans and continue to explore this stunning part of France and see more of what there is to offer.
