Unfortunately, we can't spend all of our time in Sablet as we have careers, children and grandchildren we can't live without so we rent our house in Sablet when we are not there. Our house has been pretty much fully reserved from March to the 1st of November for months. That is except for the month of August. August is available and we have a special offer for anyone who is interested in spending a week or more in Sablet.
The house is a beautiful stone village house located in the heart of the medieval village of Sablet in Vaucluse Department of Provence France. Dating from the 17th century, the house has been beautifully renovated with all of the comforts of a modern home while retaining its authentic Provençal character and charm.
Located on a narrow street inside the walls of this quaint village, it is only a few steps from the house to the Church of St. Nazaire and the shops and restaurants of this Côtes du Rhône wine village.
The house is large (168 square meters/1808 square feet) and can comfortably accommodate seven people. It is an ideal gathering place for family and friends for vacation, anniversaries, birthdays and reunions as well as an idyllic retreat for foodies, wine lovers, hikers, climbers, cyclists, artists and writers.
The house is three stories and has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The windows are covered with shutters and original beams can be seen throughout. The house is tastefully decorated for comfort and convenience, and is centrally heated. Provençal artwork and hand painted pottery can be seen throughout the house.
Sablet is a small village (pop 1,200) located at the base of the jagged Dentelles de Montmirail west of Mont Ventoux in Vaucluse region of Provence France. The village sits on a hill bordering the rich alluvial plain of the Ouvèze River. You can find lots of pictures of the house and village on our web site and this blog.
I just received this messsage on facebook from Linda from New Jersey at the end of their just concluded four-week stay:
"Michel, we had a wonderful time and decided that Sablet is the perfect village. It's picturesque, has all the shops one could need, is filled with delightful people and is so close to so many other wonderful places. Your house is perfect. Thanks for letting us rent it for 4 weeks. What precious memories we will have for many years."
I also received the followin message from Nan from Wisconsin at the end of their rental in May:
So if you or anyone you know would like to come and experience Provence for yourself, we think our house and village are the perfect place to do so. Our normal rental rate during the summer is $1600 per week, Saturday to Saturday. We are offering one week during August for $1400 and two weeks or more for $1200 per week, a very big savings. If you want to rent the whole month of August, we will rent for $1000 per week.
Bonne journée et bonne vacances!
