Sablet Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Centrally Located, Two Bedroom, Spacious, Bright Gite, Suitable For Four Persons
This bright, spacious apartment is part of our larger property Les Quatre Terrasses (ref: 415777), situated in the ramparts of the medieval village. It is privately accessed via the central location on Place des Barrys, with its popular viewing point where you can identify the location of the named Côtes du Rhône villages of Cairanne, Roaix, Rasteau and Seguret.
Le Petit Jardin provides external space for dining, sunbathing and watching the sunset over the numerous Côtes du Rhône vineyards. Internally, there are two bedrooms, one king (tower bedroom) and one twin bedded room (garden view). There is a well-equipped kitchen where you can create delicious recipes from your market purchases, a comfortable living area suitable for four persons and separate internal dining room should the weather turn a little chilly. In keeping with the rest of the dimensions of the apartment there is a large, fully tiled, shower room.
This is a peaceful location in a secluded corner of the village provides a perfect base for a relaxing vacation or a base to return to after a day of activity or sightseeing in the local area.
After six years of renting our main house Les Quatre Terrasses (ref: 415777) and responding to the demands of potential guests who wish to stay but do not require the facility of the complete unit we made a decision to partition off the lower section of the house with access from the garden, hence Le Petit Jardin.
One house can now become two units with guests having the option of either unit (lower, two bedroom unit or upper, three bedrooms) obviously, the whole house can be booked as before ( offering parties five bedrooms). The latter two options must be booked through ref: 415777.
Please note, bookings for each units will not coincide, however, it is likely that we, the owners, will be in residence in one of the units (depending on demand) during the summer season. We look forward to meeting our guests for the first time and taking care of their needs personally but at the same time ensuring privacy for all in residence.

Guestbook comments from the owner
For years I have wanted to stay in a village in the South of France, to experience the country side, living in something traditional but functional, where I can cook my own French food. Le Petit Jardin was the perfect answer to this dream.
The apartment is set in 600 year old ramparts in the village of Sablet with fantastic views over the countryside. It's is perfectly (and recently) renovated in stylish tones of cream and white, with a fully functional kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom and generous living areas. The main bedroom has its own sitting area. There is also a small garden overlooking the Place de Barry for enjoying your evening apertif.
The apartment was great with our two children - aged 8 and six months but would be great for adult groups or older children as well.
Sablet is a real French village with two boulangerie, a butcher, a few restaurants, tabac, pharmacy and a small grocer. It is only 9 kilometers from Vaison la Romaine and about 22 from Orange. There is plenty to do in the surrounding countryside eating, touring, shopping... You could spend weeks here and not see all Provence has to offer.
We were lucky to have our hosts Louise and John on hand, who were helpful but never intrusive. If they are not in Sablet I understand they have a very capable French manager to help if needed. Not that anything should be needed... The place was perfect.
I live to return!
Retired teacher from N Ireland with enthusiastic interest in interiors, food and travel. Spend my time between N Ireland and France, travelling around the Provencal region, purchasing objects, new and old for our Provencal home, visiting the local markets, cooking fresh produce and entertaining friends and neighbours on one of our four terraces with their unrivalled views.
After several years holidaying in this region we stumbled upon this authentic but beautifully renovated property, situated within the ramparts of a Provencal village, adjacent to the Place des Barrys which offeres, second to none, views of the surrounding vineyards. Our decision didn't take a second thought.
Large, bright, authentic Provencal village home incorporating modern conveniences with direct access onto the Place des Barrys with it's popular viewing point.
Village shops, patisserie, boulangerie, boucher, banque, tabac, bibliothèque, café and restaurants within a couple of minutes walk. Perfect central base for visiting Roman sites, medieval towns and villages, soaking up the atmosphere in the daily markets and touring/cycling the Côtes du Rhône wine region Roman sites or simply sipping an expresso in one of the many French cafes.
