THE ONLY HOUSE IN THE VILLAGE WITH TWO SOUTH FACING TERRACES

Sablet Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 terraces, private, peaceful, dating back to 1606

What more do you want, stunning views, in the foreground over the roof tops are the local mountains, vineyards, olive trees, cypress trees, but also Gigondas, sweeping to your right Orange and Avignon then across the Rhone to the mountains in the Ardeche, to the north Pierrelatte following through to Roaix, amazing. I would like to welcome back all those lovely people 'home' again and all those lovely people yet to come! The house is set on two floors and has all you need and more. There is private parking in the courtyard by the front door, each bedroom has its own bathroom. But it is really the views from the main terrace which leads off the kitchen that all clients adore. More than 180 degrees, east to beyond west facing south, plenty of sunshine and you are protected from the dreaded Mistral wind. Why go out when you can see and breathe Provence. The sunsets are truly amazing, even better with a glass of wine in your hand! Plus there is the small terrace off the double bedroom ideal for a coffee in the shade.

The village of Sablet. How rare to find such a picturesque Provencal village with all amenities set back from the main road. Have lived in the village for the past 12 years and still do, all year round, not only are the local people friendly they are also very helpful and a delight.

So much to see and do from Sablet, several walks up into the hills which start from the village square. Rivers for swimming, plus two public pools all within ten minutes drive. The provencal market in Vaison la Romaine is a colourful delight. Forty minutes drive to La Pont du Gard, Isle sur la Sorgues for antiquities and brocante on a Sunday morning. The lavender fields along La Vallee de La Nesque towards Sault. Or just rest relax and enjoy a good book.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The highlight of our month long trip through France was our stay in the area of Provence in the small village of Sablet.

The grocery, bakery and butcher shop supplied all our needs and wants during our stay with friendly people throughout the village.

We stayed in Les Rosaries for a week and enjoyed every minute. It was comfortable, clean, and felt like home within hours.

The owner lives in town so questions were answered and helpful information for our tours were given as requested.

We had beautiful views from the fabulous roof top terrace, where we enjoyed food from the local markets.

The village was surrounded by beautiful vineyards and great wineries so day trips were easy to tour the countryside.

The owner was extraordinarily friendly, warm, and helpful.

We would love to return and highly recommend this property for two couples.

I have stayed in this house many times and it is always idyllic - even out of season. The owner is gregarious and helpful. The house is tastefully decorated and minatained to a high standard and very clean. The views are magnificent - almost 360 degrees of the plains and the Dentelles. This is a quiet village, give or take the odd fete, and you are reminded of 'real life' only by the chimes of the church clock. You are only a minute away from the boulangerie and the bar is just round the corner. This is a quiet and friendly village with all the commerce that you need for your stay. The restaurant is good and the take away amazing by British standards! You can take walks or sit and admire the views and relax with the wafting of lavender. Vaison is only 15 minutes away by car and there are international restaurants to choose from as well as bars, shops and the Tuesday market. There is also the medieval part of town and a swimming pool. Avignon is about half an hour away and Nimes airport less than an hour. Nyons (and villages nearby and in between) is a 40 minute drive to the east and sheltered by mountains and there is a fabulous open air pool there and a market on Thursday. This place is as near to heaven as you're going to get in France and I haven't even mentioned the wine yet!

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in this stunning property immensely. The house is charming and beautifully presented. Every room is well-equipped and every detail seems to have been thought of. We couldn't have wished for more. The English-speaking owner lives close by and was a very generous supplier of local knowledge and useful information to help us get the most out of our stay. Nothing was a problem. We also found Sablet to be a very friendly village with great amenities and ideally located to explore a very attractive region of France. Highly recommended.

Fantastico!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned home after spending a week in this lovely part of the world. The house is laid out on several floors ending with a fully equipped kitchen on the top floor with a door out onto the terraces (including a very handy gas-fired BBQ). The house has everything (TV/ DVD etc etc) and if it hasn't got something just ask Ros who will go out of her way to help (see the description on the website). There is a spiral staircase that would cause problems for someone who is not so mobile and it's not a place for younger children. We were two adults and two children (11 and 13) and we found the house to be very comfortable and excellently placed for exploring the many things to do in the area. We'd recommend canoeing on the rivers, visits to places like Vaison and Avignon but there really is a vast choice of places and activities within about an hour's drive. The village of Sablet is very small and quiet and it has a good tourist office which also functions as a wine-tasting outlet for local producers where you are encouraged to taste what you like. All in all, a great place to stay. Highly recommended.

Perfect start to our holiday!

  • 5 of 5
The village of Sablet was exactly what we thought a Fench provincial village would be like and our base, Les Rosaraies was just brilliant. The house was very well equipped, comfortable and easy to operate! However it was the views from the rooftop terrace that blew us away. We shall never forget dining on the terrace as the sun set over the surrounding vineyards. The host Ros was great and explained the area well, giving us some great tips.
The village has some wonderful shops such as the bakery and grocer, with a nice cafe in the centre with some very good restaurants on the outskirts.
A great destination for a relaxing holiday and a perfect house to stay in!

Perfect, peaceful, paradise!

  • 5 of 5
A lovely house in a great location. Superb views, in easy reach of the Vineyards of Gigondas and Chateauneuf du Pape as well as the local Sablet Côtes Du Rhônes. Also easy access to the sights of Avignon, Orange and Arles.
The owner has equipped the house with everything you need so you can travel light.
As others have said, the market in Vaison la Romaine is excellent and there are some fantastic restaurants nearby.
Only thing I would advise against is having a large car - you won't get it up the medieval streets!
We'll be back again as soon as we can.

Car: recommended

Sablet is in the center of the Cotes de Rhone region, full of excellent wines to taste and buy. Probably Gigondas, Vacqueras, Cairanne and Beaumes de Venise are the famous caves but all within a ten minute drive. Orange, 20 minutes, boasts an amphitheatre with classical performances during the summer months. Carpentras, 20 minutes, has the only synagogue in the area. The Dentelles de Montmirail are famous for climbing and walking. Mont Ventoux for also walking and cycling for the brave of heart. Rivers, swimming pools close by and above all Vaison la Romaine full of ancient remains, Provencal market every Tuesday which is a delight to the eye and the stomach. Thriving town and a joy in the evenings just to wander and chose a menu of your choice. Villedieu, 10 minutes, excellent tapas in the evenings under the Plane trees to the sound of the village fountain. Music in the bars around the area, always colourful always something to do.

Other Activities: Great for climbers.
