Overview

Sablet House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7). Dream Kitchen.

The house is a beautiful stone village house located in the center of the medieval village of Sablet in Vaucluse region of Provence France. Dating from the 17th century, the house has been beautifully renovated with all of the comforts of a modern home while retaining its authentic Provencal character and charm.

Located on a narrow street inside the walls of this quaint village, it is only a few steps from the house to the Church of St. Nazaire and the shops and restaurants of this Cotes du Rhone wine village.

The house is large (168 square meters/1808 square feet) and can comfortably accommodate six people. It is an ideal gathering place for family and friends for vacation, anniversaries, birthdays and reunions as well as an idyllic retreat for foodies, wine lovers, bikers, hikers, climbers, cyclists, artists and writers.

The house is three stories and has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The windows are covered with shutters and original beams can be seen throughout. The house is tastefully decorated for comfort and convenience, and is centrally heated. Provencal artwork and hand painted pottery can be seen throughout the house.

The large well equipped kitchen has a beautiful oak table with seating for 8 people, making this a cozy area to savor meals using the wonderful fresh ingredients which are available throughout the region.

French doors lead out to the large terrace from the mezzanine and kitchen. Enjoy lunch or dinner, a pastis (the traditional Provençal aperitif; anise-flavored alcohol served over ice and diluted with water, which turns it milky white) or glass of local wine and dish of olives on the terrace while soaking up the Provençal sunshine. The terrace is furnished with table and chairs; there is a propane gas fired cook top for your use

Sablet is a small village (pop 1,200) located at the base of the jagged Dentelles de Montmirail west of Mont Ventoux in Vaucluse region of Provence France.

In Sablet, you will find charming and picturesque shaded streets adorned with flowers, passageways with exposed beams, fountains and stone village houses lined along the narrow streets which curl up in concentric circles to the Romanesque church of St. Nazaire (12th century).

Sablet is known for its production of Cotes du Rhone Village wine. The vineyards which surround the village were first cultivated by the Counts of Toulouse whom the area then belonged. During the 14th century, the vineyards became papal possessions when the papacy moved to Avignon.

Sablet is also famous for its book fair 'Journee du Livre de Sablet' celebrated in the center of the village the 3rd weekend of every July. Well known authors and literary enthusiasts from all over come to the village for book readings and signings.

Within 2 or 3 minutes walking distance from the house, you can find most everything you will require during your stay in the village; two boulangeries (bakeries), boucherie (butcher), two mini marts, a florist, a pharmacy, a tabac/presse (where you can buy local and Parisian daily newspapers and the International Herald Tribune), 2 hair salons, a bibliotheque (library), bank with ATM machine and post office.

A wonderful fish monger comes to the village and sets up a stall every Thursday morning in the main village square. You can find an amazing assortment of fish and seafood. An excellent fresh goat cheese maker visits the village and sets up a stand on Thursday morning along side the fish stall in the main village square.

In case of emergencies, there is a small health center with a physician and dentist on duty.

The main village square is also home to the tourist office or 'Syndicat d'Initiative' where you can find all the information you will need about touring the area. The tourist office is also the showcase for the local independent wine-makers who have the made the village famous; you can taste and buy their wines there.

In the main village square, there is a traditional village bar called Cafe des Sports; a good place to watch the world go by, gossip with the locals or read the paper while you enjoy your morning coffee.

There is also a casual family restaurant and pizzeria right next door to the bar in the main village square called Les Remparts. There is indoor dining and a large terrace for outdoor dining and beautiful views.

A short walk down the hill along the Route de Vaison to the Marie past the roundabout at the northern entrance to Sablet you will find an excellent gastronomic restaurant called Les Abeilles. They offer indoor dining and a lovely plane tree shaded terrace for alfresco dining.

Just outside of Sablet on the D977 in the triangle of Sablet, Seguret and Rasteau is Les Genets. They will serve you in the tasting room or on the terrace which has a great view of the Dentelles de Montmirail and the village of Sablet.

Within a few minutes drive, there are many other restaurants from simple establishments serving locally produced seasonal dishes along with traditional Provencal dishes to Michelin starred establishments such as Le Grand Pre in Roaix.

About Michel Augsburger

We are Michel and Shirley Augsburger. We live in Sonoma County California north of San Francisco. I am CEO of Chancellor Health Care, a company which operates senior living communities. Shirley is a registered nurse and works on a neurology unit in a local hospital. I am a foodie and wino and love to cook and entertain. This has led after many years of talking about it to opening a small French bistro called Bistro Des Copains in Occidental California. We have two married daughters who have given us four wonderful grand children. As we say, we live for our kids and now for our grand kids. Our only 'child' at home is our very large but sweet Newfoundland named Abbi.

Michel Augsburger purchased this house in 2008

Why Michel Augsburger chose Sablet

My father was born in Lausanne Switzerland. His mother was French and they moved to the south of France when he was very young. He came to the United States just as world war II was starting to go to graduate school and met my mother. He ended up staying in the US and teaching in a university for many years. He left behind parents and sisters. As a family we came to visit quite often as I grew up and this has continued with my own family. His sisters married and lived in the south of France. So during the course of our visits to family members, I fell in love with Provence and the Vaucluse in particular. We love the small charming village of Sablet and its location up against the Dentelles de Montmirail, the village's accessibility and proximity to Avignon, Aix en Provence, Marseille, the Mediterranean and Montpellier.

What makes this house unique

We love the location in the center of the village and proximity to the cafes and shops, all within a five minute walk. We love the spaciousness of the house; a beautiful very old house but beautifully restored to modern comforts. Being a foodie and wino, I love the large well equipped kitchen with its adjoining terrace. I also love the wonderful street markets in Vaison la Romaine and Carpentras, both within 15 minutes drive. We are within walking distance of fabulous wineries in Sablet, Seguret and Gigondas. A few minutes drive will bring you to Vacqueyras, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rasteau and Cairanne. The roads in the area are wide and safe for bike riding and the great hiking trails abound in the area.

Lavender Days

  • 5 of 5
Our party consisted of 3 couples who "bought into" one person's bucket list item of seeing the Lavender bloom in Provence. We chose to stay at this home in Sablet because it was fairly central to the lavender fields, in a small village with cobblestone streets, stores for what we needed, the house had 3 bedrooms and 3 baths and the owner is a "foodie" which meant that his kitchen would no doubt be wonderful. We were not disappointed in any way! Not only was the kitchen a dream but the whole house felt like the owners had thought of everything visiting guests would need. We were met by the folks who maintain the home; received a great, warm welcome; an orientation to the facility and good information about the town. One of our favorite places was the patio which has a retractable awning. You could sit outside any time of day and be comfortable. Built into the patio wall was an herb garden which we tended with loving care and used some of its bounty. The owners were great to work with and very prompt in responding to our questions.

Dreams do come true

  • 5 of 5
I think I said it all in my review "a Perfect Dream" below. I can vouch for dreams coming true again. I so love this house and this village that I brought my cousins back this year during the Tour de France. We enjoyed everything again and then some. The house and terrace are the same wonderful places I loved last year. The villagers are just as welcoming and friendly, the owner and his on-site reps just as helpful. The one thing you should do in this house is cook. Every pan and pot is there, a huge library of locally oriented cookbooks, the fishmonger on Thursdays, the village market on Friday, a well stocked epicerie, a lovely butcher, the huge market in Viason-la-Romaine on Tuesdays, and a bottle or two from a nearby vineyard. Even if you don't think you'll cook, you will want to make this as much a part of the experience as seeing the Pont du Gard.

Beautiful, comfortable -- perfect!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, another couple and I spent a delightful week at Sablet House, which we used as our basis for exploring the region by car. The house could not have been more welcoming, comfortable and well-equipped; we didn't cook much because of the wonderful restaurants and the incredible markets but the lovely kitchen with adjoining balcony where we ate all of our meals (surrounded by planters of herbs and flowers) couldn't have been nicer. Lots of room and beautifully appointed. Michel was straightforward and business-like in his approach, which I appreciated, and was upfront about care of the house and other expectations. But he is so thoughtful that he called us about a day and a half after we came to see if everything was OK. That week was truly one of the best vacations we have ever had; I'm sure we will stay again Sablet House on a subsequent trip to France. The village of Sablet is charming and we easily made friends with the shopkeepers, found everything we needed, even an ATM nearby. My only caveat is to rent a smaller car than we did: parking is not easy in Sablet!

Wonderful stay in Sablet,

  • 5 of 5
My family, two sons (6&10), husband and my 70 year old Mom stayed in Sablet for a week and loved it. House was wonderful, private, but still cozy when we all wanted to be together. Great patissierie (bakery), butcher, market, and local wines. We were there during the Book Fair and had loved meeting the authors.The stairs were a bit tough for my Mom. Highly recommend Sablet. Easy to walk around, enljoy the markets and wander the streets. We did a day trip to Cassis, and to Pont Du Gard, then closer to home, Seguret, Viason du Roman. We really relaxed and were able to connect with us all.

A perfect dream

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I had a perfect 6 weeks in this house. The stay was flawless because of the owners' care and preparation and the on site caretakers' ready access when we couldn't figure out how to operate something or needed to know at what temp centigrade to roast a chicken. The owners are easy to talk to as you plan and have made every consideration for you to enjoy this house as a home. Lots of little extras and decorating that make you feel you are staying in a home not in a hotel. Plan to use the excellent cookbook collection to prepare most your meals of local produce. Housekeeping is spotless, lovely towels, lavender soap. Easy to do your laundry with their single European machine. The terrace becomes the center of life in the house: espresso in the morning from the house machine through wine and the sunset. Herbs growing on the terrace can go right into your cooking pot. Walk up the hill every day to Seguret, one of the "most beautiful villages in France" or take short rides to visit wineries or the Super Marche in Vaison when you have a need for stocking up.. You can pick up a wine education from the house library. The villagers make you feel at home, being very patient with your speaking French, and invite you to the many village events. The house is but a tiny walk to the village center and parking. You are literally living inside the castle ramparts. What could be better! I dream of our good times in this house.

Charming House in the wine country

  • 5 of 5
We were two couples and a rental car. Sablet is centrally located for exploring the Cote de Rhone wine region. The house is large and tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. Everything was as described or better. We loved the Thursday market in Vaison and used the restaurants recommendations thoughtfully compiled by the owner. We loved this whole region and highly recommend the house.
