About Seillans

Seillans is a small, absolutely idyllic hilltop village, old tiny stone paths meander up to the top of the village to the beautiful church and square. There’s a great vibe in the summer with lots of visitors filling the restaurants & cafés. The Academy students have a big pool and garden (with horses!) at their accommodation and plenty of time to relax there. The house is very big and their hosts are very friendly  with lots of games & fun. There is a gorgeous lake, Lac Cassien: http://www.paysdefayence.com/en/decouvrir/nos-espaces-naturels/lac-de-saint-cassien/

which is a 20/30 minutes drive from Seillans and great for swimming, pedalos, kayaking etc. The main high point of the academy aside from the teaching is the chance to attend all the other festival concerts and to eat meals afterwards with the whole festival orchestra, choir and team. The concerts take place in churches & chapels in different towns – all medieval hill-top like Seillans – and then everyone joins together to have supper outside post concert.
Otherwise, this is a link to the tourist website for the area http://www.paysdefayence.com/en/ which has details about all the villages we stage concerts in and http://www.ot-bargemon.fr which is not in the Pays de Fayence but we do a concert there on the first Wednesday.
