Superb hiking (many trails), biking, equestrian opportunities.. Swimming in the Lac de St Cassien, or in the Mediterranean (30 km away). The Domaine de Terre Blanche, an 18 hole golf course in Tourettes, is 9 km from Seillans (there are many other golf courses within easy distance).
Several vineyards in the area produce excellent wines. The rosé is particularly good (particularly in summer). There is also excellent local olive oil.
