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)!

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

Louise,



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!

Exceeded our Expectations

  • 5 of 5
We rented the whole property and for our family of seven, which included two young children (three and six) and five adults. This was our home base for a week as we explored the surrounding areas and it was just fantastic. The patios were amazing and we were able to take advantage of all of them at different times throughout the day, the main one was for lounging, lunch and dinner, the small patio off the kitchen for breakfast and the third story patio was perfect for an after dinner bottle of wine. The kids LOVED that the main patio was big enough to play on and out the back door was a cute little square that was perfect for an evening family soccer game! The kitchen was perfect for us as we love to cook and as a family travelling with children it worked great for us. It also gave us an opportunity to shop the local markets, butcher and wineries. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and so look forward to my next visit!

More Than We Expected!

  • 5 of 5
We would absolutely stay in this fabulous property again. The village of Sablet is like a fairytale Provencal wine village with a vibrant local community (services are outstanding). The Maison is perched overlooking the lush vineyards with nothing to obstruct the view. We were treated very kindly and felt that we had luck on our side in finding this gem!

Fantastic views

  • 5 of 5
Since this is a second home for the owners, the amenities are beyond what is usually found in rentals...partiularly in the fully equipped gourmet kitchen. The four terracess have wonderful views and provide lots of places for privacy when traveling with others. Our favorite room was the library, where we could sit and read and still look out over the valley.
Parking is limited in small villages so that fact that a garage space is available was a plus. The apartment is withing the main part of Sablet so a quick walk to shops, restaurants, and coffee bars. There are also ATMs nearby.
Sablet is surrounded by excellent wineries and vineyards, which we liked exploring to compare and contrast to our own local area in California. There are many excellent resturants close by as well.
The apartment is in beautiful condition and we would definitnely stay there again and recommend it to our friends.

Memorable week in Provence!

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.
