Sablet villa description

A beautiful and much loved Provencal home . The property is set among the Southern Rhone vineyards in a 3/4 acre private and secluded garden. The perfect place to escape to. Relax and unwind in the beautiful garden or pool area. The lovely, welcoming pool (8 x 4 meters) is set in the mature well tendered garden. The whole setting of this property is very private and secluded - the ideal place for a self catering holiday where you can enjoy the local food and wine. The property sleeps 8 people comfortably and has 2 bathrooms. The beautiful outside terraces have been arranged so that all meals can be enjoyed outdoors. The pool area has a covered open kitchen area comprising a bbq and sink. This lovely property is a short distance from the famous vineyards of Gigondas and Chateau Neuf du Pape. The village of Sablet is a lazy ten minute walk away. All amenities are available: bank, general store, bakers, butchers, newsagents, hairdresser, medical centre, a choice of three restaurants.


The ideal holiday spot for Wine lovers: Sablet is on the Route des Vins. The local wines of the Southern Rhone are famous and certainly worth tasting! You can follow the signs for the Route des Vins trail by car or if you are feeling very fit, on bicycles!! You will be made very welcome by all the local vineyards, where you will be able to taste these delicious wines often served with equally delicious snacks from the area, such as freshly made tapenade (olive paste) with french bread. And best of all - there is no pressure for you to buy the wines.

If you would like to join an escorted wine tour of the Route des Vins, all contact information for joining a wine tour can be sent to you on request. There is normally a charge made per person, and you will have the option of either driving yourselves or, for an extra charge, being driven from lovely vineyard to lovely vineyard.

For any budding chefs out there: This area is a haven for foodies. The local market in Vaison la Romaine on a Tuesday morning is a place where you can completely lose yourself. You can buy all local produce and then go home and let your creativity take over the cooking. You will be amazed at just how many different types of tomato are available in this area and they all seem to taste of sunshine.

You have a huge number of restaurants in this area ranging from the local Sports bar in the centre of the village of Sablet, La Bastide Bleu on the road to Seguret, to fine dining at L'oustalet in Gigondas.

Sabine Suter is a is a local vigneron's daughter and she runs Provencal cookery classes from her home “La Grange Vieille”. Sabine and her husband Alex run a very well respected vineyard in the area - Domaine de l'Amandine, Seguret - and if you attend her cookery school you also get the added benefit of trying their wine! Sabine normally runs her cookery schools in the morning, for up to six people, and after cooking you sit on the terrace and enjoy your lunch (and wine!) with the family. If you are interested in attending a cookery class all contact information for booking a class can be sent to you on request.

For those of you who just want to relax and unwind: You will not find a more perfect place for unwinding. The villa is set amongst vineyards and the garden has so many lovely shady areas for your afternoon siesta. The outside summer kitchen with BBQ means that all your meals can be taken outside taking in the lovely scenery. From our experience, the inside of the villa gets used very little in the summer.

If you do feel energetic, you can put on your sunscreen, sunhat and walking shoes and walk across the vineyards to the lovely village of Seguret (which is just behind the villa) and here you will find even more delightful restaurants to tempt you!

This is one of the most beautiful areas in France! There is literally something for everyone to enjoy - whether your idea of a holiday is to relax with a pile of books by the pool, sample the local food and wine, walk or cycle around the area, visit local markets, learn to cook like the locals or do nothing at all, you can do it all here.

The property has a lovely pool area bordered by lavender and fruit trees. The sun beds are very comfortable with plenty of shade umbrellas available so you can make yourself comfortable and read all those books that take your fancy from the well stocked house library.

The local area is very famous for its wines! Close by you have the famous vineyards of Gigondas, Rasteau, Chateau Neuf du Pape. A wine tour can be arranged if required. The famous village of Seguret can be reached by walking across vineyards behind the villa.

If your idea of a holiday is to eat good food you will be very at home in this area. There are an abundance of restaurants ranging from dining on the vineyards where the owners do the cooking to fine dining at Les Abeilles and the Michelin starred Le Grand Pré.

If you love sightseeing you must visit the nearby towns of Vaison La Romaine (10 kms away) and Orange (20 kms away) where you will find beautiful Roman ruins to amble around. During July and August the amphitheatres in both these towns host a number of Operas and concerts.

You will be spoilt for choice by the numerous weekly markets in the area. The nearest traditional weekly market is held in Vaison. The market takes over all the streets in Vaison every Tuesday - something that should be on every persons to visit list. Vaison is also the ideal place to find a seat at one of the numerous cafes or restaurants and sit and watch the world go by.

If you love cycling, there are places to hire bikes and do your own thing. Alternatively, you can join a local cycling club and go out on organised cycle routes.

Cookery classes are available all over this area. There are two excellent cookery schools very close to the property: one is run by Chef Johannes Sailer at restaurant Les Abeilles and the other is run by local Sabine Suter in her beautiful Provence home.
