Sablet House Rental Photos and Description

Beautifully renovated 14th century Provencal village house

Situated west of Mont Ventoux and at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, this authentic, medieval, village house provides modern facilities for those seeking for a luxurious holiday in the Cote du Rhone wine region. This unique property offers spacious living and sleeping accommodation incorporating on the ground floor, a living room with wood burning stove, and grand terrace for dining and relaxing, professional kitchen with small breakfast terrace along with a smaller prep kitchen and cloakroom. Enjoy the romantic sunsets on the terrace just off the reading room on the first floor where there is also a master bedroom with en suite bathroom & shower.

Separate living and sleeping area on the lower ground floor provides, two bedrooms, one shower room with toilet, a laundry area with sauna. Shade from the sun, is provided by the vine in the small secure garden overlooking the Place des Barry with its popular viewing point.

Markets: Visit the many markets in the area:

Sunday - L'Isle-sur-la-sorgue - famous antique market - 40 minutes drive

Monday - Bedoin

Tuesday - Vaison la Romaine

Wednesday - Malaucene

Thursday - Nyons (Provencal Market on Sunday during the summer months)

Friday - Carpentras

Saturday - Ste Cecile Les Vignes - (small market but excellent quality of fish, meat, seasonal vegetables and fruit)

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)!

Recently retired teacher currently spending my time between N Ireland and Sablet, France.

Louise Nelson purchased this house in 2006

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!

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!

Memorable week in Provence!

The one the best parts of our rental of Les Quatre Terrasses was our dealings with the owner during the initial rental agreement and communication prior to our arrival. She provided us with all pertinent information, rental requirements and documents on time and made me very comfortable with the entire arrangement. Since this was my first international rental agreement I was somewhat concerned about the process, but everything (signing, deposit and final payment) was handled promptly and without incident.

Arrival at the villa was handled by local caretaker Linda, who gave us the tour of the unit and provided all necessary housekeeping information and local information. The villa was exactly as described and the welcoming basket was well received as we had made a long drive from Dordogne.

The town of Sablet had everything we needed to setup housekeeping for our stay; grocery, bakerys, tabac, wine center and small informal restaurants.
The villa itself was spotless and well stocked with necessities. Everyone (our group of three couples) loved the fully equipped kitchen and the beautiful views from the terraces.

The villa and Sablet are very well located for day trips, we visited Pont du Gard, Avignon, Vaison-la-Romaine, Orange, Bedoin, Séguret, and Mont Ventoux.
There is a notebook in the villa that details sites, restaurants with recommendations. We made good use of it and were not disappointed. One of the recommendations was a winery tour with local wine guide, Olivier. Olivier and the tour was one of the highlights of our trip. Olivier also told us how to easily handle a parking ticket we received in Orange by paying at the Tabac in Sablet. (17 Euros, but very easy).

We would definitely recommend this villa to our friends and relatives.

A perfect holiday home

We have rented vacation homes and apartments in France annually for the past 30 years. Les Quartres Terrasses is by far the best furnished and most spacious (for 2 couples) that we have ever stayed in. The rooms are huge, by French standards, immaculate and beautifully decorated. The master bedroom has its own large bathroom and sitting area with terrace. So both couples had total privacy in their separate, spacious living areas. The top 2 floors are light and airy so that one feels connected with the town below and the glorious surrounding countryside. The kitchen has everything one needs to enjoy the bounty from nearby markets. As opposed to the more touristy villages of Gigondas and Seguret, Sablet feels like a "real" French town where the ex-pat home owners and French villagers are well integrated, and short-term tourists are welcomed but don't overshadow the locals.

Louise is a very responsive owner who is concerned about making one's stay perfect. Prior to our arrival, she provided a comprehensive information packet about the house and surrounding area. She answered our questions about restaurants with a list that addressed our specific interests. After our stay, she sent an email query to make sure that everything worked out to our satisfaction. Linda, her on-site caretaker, was equally responsive. She is also a wonderful chef who will provide renters with a delicious repast brought to the door.

If only the mistral had not blown...but one can't control the weather! And it made for an interesting drive up Mt Ventoux where the wind really howls and the cyclists are undeterred by it.

Fabulous property and views in a charming village

We spent an idyllic week at Les Quatre Terrasses. It is set almost at the center of a medieval village, which was a great experience in itself. The terraces have panoramic views of the countryside and other nearby hillside villages. We enjoyed dining there while watching the sun set. There were also a number of nice restaurants nearby and great wine tasting at Gigondas. The house itself was spacious, immaculate and had everything one could desire. We appreciated how beautifully the house was decorated and the welcome pack was a nice touch. Both the owner, Louise, and caretaker were a pleasure to deal with and very eager to ensure our comfort and enjoyment. As far as value and quality, this is the best rental property we have ever stayed at (in well over 20 in Europe and the U.S.) in this price range. We would definitely return to and recommend Les Quatre Terrasses to anyone who is looking for a relaxing stay in a beautiful setting.

We were 3 couples from the San Francisco
Bay Area with previous experiences in renting
vacation homes in France, but suffice it to say
that the Les Quatres Terrasses home in Sablet
uniquely exceeded all expectations that had
been gleaned from the property descriptions
and the photographs. The floor plan, the
spaciousness, the furnishings, generously
supplied kitchen and, of course, the expan-
sive views from the four terraces all combined to make the one week we spent
here one of the most relaxing and delightful
vacations we have ever experienced.

The house is beautifully renovated and wonderfully comfortable with marvelous views. Parking was a real problem and a daily challenge. Once we drove past the house looking for a space and became trapped in the street too narrow for our mid-size car.
Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind comments, I am happy to hear you enjoyed the luxury of our holiday home with it's outstanding views and spacious interiors. I am naturally very sorry to hear you had an unfortunate experience during your stay. when you attempted to drive within the ramparts of the village, this must have caused you serious distress given the width of Grande Rue. Parking is available for our guests in front of our garage, as indicated on email correspondence prior to your stay, as well as within the garage which is listed as a facility on our advertisement. Please be assured, to prevent anyone making this same mistake, we will, in future, further highlight the importance of not driving within the historic centre of the village. I should point out, however, there is a space with room to turn opposite our entrance where you are free to park for a short period for loading or unloading your vehicle. I offer my sincere apologies for the obvious misunderstanding regarding parking facilities at our property.
