Overview

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! Just finished stage one of the redecoration process, stage two will follow before the end of March 2015.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

We arrived in Sablet by car from Avignon on a warm, sunny late September afternoon and were met in the village centre by our host, Ros.



The house itself is lovely with traditional thick stone walls, blue shutters and red tile roof! The front door opens into a delightful lounge with comfortable furnishings, a wood burner, TV, telephone, a small library etc. The downstairs double bedroom is just a couple of easy steps away with its own bathroom and shower. A staircase leads from the lounge to the first floor and the second double bedroom a bright, sunny room with its own secluded terrace and bathroom with shower. The kitchen is traditional in style, well lit and very well equipped with washing machine, dish washer, a large fridge and all the home comforts including a Senseo coffee maker, microwave, a proper oven & hob. There is a nice round table and four cushioned chairs. A door leads out to the large roof terrace. This is literally the high spot of the house and is absolutely stunning! The views are fabulous you look over lovely red tiled roofs and vineyards to the Dentelles to the south, towards Avignon in the far distance to the south west and towards Orange to the west. It is incredibly peaceful and the sunsets are wonderful. There is a table and four chairs and two comfortable sun loungers, all in good condition and nice quality. There is also a gas BBQ. We were very impressed with the way Ros has provided everything you could possibly need in a home away from home. All the rooms are tastefully decorated and in good order. Ros lives in the village and on the couple of occasions we needed to speak to her, was very responsive but never intrusive.



Sablet is an historic working village with narrow streets and with most of the original stone walls still in existence. It has a lively bar/pizza (wood fired oven) restaurant, a very well stocked super market, two boulangeries and an excellent butcher, all within easy walking distance. We parked the car in the village centre car park and had no difficulty finding a space at any time.



In summary, we really enjoyed our holiday. We used the car a lot, visiting the delightful Vaison la Romaine, Seguret, Orange, Chateauneuf du Pape etc and further afield to Mont Ventoux, and Fontaine de Vaucluse. Sablet is a pretty village and an ideal place to stay. The house is lovely and very comfortable. We have no reservation in recommending it and awarding five stars!

Look No Further

  • 5 of 5
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!

A Perfect Place in Provence

  • 5 of 5
We were very impressed with all aspects of our stay. The property is well maintained and equipped, spotlessly clean and the location was ideal. The village boulangerie, mini market/delicatessen and bar are only a minute away. Everyone in the village were friendly and helpful. The views from the terrace are stunning and we spent lots of our time there in total relaxation mode, more often than not with a couple of glasses of wine or a cold beer.
Ros, (the owner), was extremely friendly and helpful with suggestions of places to visit. One of our favourites was an English language vineyard tour in the neighbouring village of Seguret. Seguret also has a nice selection of places to eat, our favourite being The Terrasse.
The market in Vaison-la-Romaine is well worth a visit as is Mount Ventoux for stunning views across Provence. We also visited the open air pool/piscine in Beaumes-de-Venise several times.
All in all our holiday was the perfect mix of fun and relaxation, helped in no small measure by the ideal property in which to stay. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.

Our best stay in Provence!!!

  • 5 of 5
We highly recommend this beautiful house to anyone who would like to explore the real Provence!! Perfectly situated in the genuine village of Sablet, just close to the vineyards of Vacqueyras and Gicondas, you just have to walk a few steps to buy your morning bread, or the great pizza for the evening. From the big terrace you have a lovely view of the landscape, and if you are fond of cooking the kitchen is just great!! The owner was very helpful, and we visited a wine-maker nearby, suggested by her and it was a great experience! We have been to Provence several times, and this was the very best apartment! We hope to come back!

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.

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.
