Cycling Mont Ventoux_Tour de France 2011: 'This is surely one of the top 20 French passes. As all cyclists will tell you, Mont Ventoux is a really difficult climb that compares with the hardest in the Alps. Make your climb from Malaucene for the wonderful views. You can have a snack at the ski station at Mont Serein before struggling up the last five kilometres. For a more relaxed ascent, it is better to begin from Sault: the first twenty kilometres are quite easy and in the forest. When you arrive at Chalet-Reynard, have a rest before tackling the last five kilometres. The fittest start from Bédoin, it’s the pros' climb and undoubtedly the most difficult.'
Les Quatre Terrasses is conveniently placed to follow Le Tour 2011, particularly on 19th July when the peloton will head to Gap from Saint Paul Trois Chateaux......plenty of opportunities to view the spectacle (see www.letour.fr for further information)!

About Louise Nelson
Recently retired teacher currently spending my time between N Ireland and Sablet, France.
Louise Nelson purchased this house in 2006
Why Louise Nelson chose Sablet
We viewed this property several years ago and were blown away by the views (180 deg plus) which was the predominant reason for making the purchase. Upon arrival and without exception, guests are taken aback by the vista. The quality of the recent renovation - the house was lovingly rebuilt from a ruin by a committed German couple, as can be seen in the quality of amenities, fixtures and fittings, this was our second reason. Last but certainly not least, the picturesque, medieval, village itself. I visited an antique market in Sablet several years ago where I purchased an old French chair which was shipped back to N Ireland - I liked the atmosphere and location of the village, rural France but close to road, rail and air infrastructure for sight-seeing and travelling. I felt it was right!
What makes this house unique
This large village property offers guests a piece of French history, tastefully furnished with all the conveniences of modern life. High ceilings, four spacious terrasses, three living areas, four bedrooms and bedrooms. Room for families and couples alike with space for privacy when the need arises. Sunsets, sunsets, sunsets!
Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to say thank you – your home is beautiful and our stay in Sablet was wonderful. Although brief, it was incredibly relaxing and my wife and I fell in love with the area. We'll definitely be back for longer in the not too far off future!
