About Seillans

On the edge of Provence and the Côte d'Azur region, Seillans is a particularly pretty French town. Popular with culture buffs as well as keen foodies eager to savour the area’s famous food and wine, it’s a wonderfully relaxing choice for a holiday with family or friends. Chosen for their location, design and amenities, our list of the best places to stay in Seillans is the perfect starting point for a trip to remember!

Set on a steep incline, the pedestrianised streets of Seillans’ centre are perfect for sunlit ambles between small squares, art galleries and shaded cafés along winding lanes lined with pastel-painted houses clad in flowering vines. Highlights include a medieval castle, the lovely Eglise Saint Léger and the 12th-century Porte Sarrasine, part of the town's original stone ramparts. The Musée Ernst on Place du Thouron, dedicated to surrealist artist Max Ernst, who lived here in the 1970s, is fantastic. Zip across to Fayence or Grasse for more excellent museums and markets, or enjoy tours and tastings at the area’s world-class vineyards.

Time your trip to experience the annual pottery market, or the Féstival Musique en Liberté in August, where classical, choral and jazz musicians from across the globe gather to perform in the church, town hall and various open-air venues. This is a busy time in town — book well in advance for a room at one of the best places to stay in Seillans.
