Carpe diem à Seillans

Fayence is 14 km from the house, about 18 minutes drive.

Larger than most of the villages in the region, Fayence is a very attractive town and a pleasure to explore, it has a wide selection of cafes and restaurants

There are numerous small highlights to discover as you wander through the village streets including a traditional stone-built lavoir (Place Gabriel Peri, towards the bottom of the old town), an ancient communal bread oven (dating from the 16th century, follow the signs for the 'Four du Mitan'), ornate carvings in the stone lintels above the doorways and numerous traditional provencal fountains.

Tourrettes is 14 km from the house, about 18 minutes drive.

The old heart of Tourrettes is quite small. Explore the narrow streets of the village that lead out of the square and slowly wind your way up through Tourrettes and past the 11th century Church of Saint André to reach the clocktower that stands at the top - the clocktower was built in the 14th century, as was the small chapel of Penitents.

There is a village lavoir to the north of the village and the castle on the hill to the west is the Chateau de Puy.

Seillans is 10 km from the house, about 15 minutes drive.

Seillans, one of "the most beautiful villages in France", is a small "village perché" (perched hill-top village) overlooking the plain between the southern Alps and the Esterel, which borders the sea between Cannes and Saint-Raphaël.

With a steeply-inclined medieval centre the village is accessible only on foot. Seillans features a castle and the delightful 13th century Church of Saint Leger.
