Updated: 11-Nov-2016
Village House in Sablet, Provence, France - In The Heart Of The Côtes Du Rhône Wine-Making Village Of Sablet

Le Fer à Cheval (the horseshoe) is a beautifully renovated house in a former stable, restored with taste and charm, in the heart of the medieval village of Sablet in Provence. It has been fitted with all the modern facilities you would expect to find whilst retaining its authentic provençal character. The house has been furnished in a traditional style, with many vintage pieces sourced by the owners at local antique markets. It is fitted throughout with high quality fixtures and appliances (Bosch dishwasher and washing machine, large Smeg fridge) as well as wireless broadband, DVD player with a range of DVDs, a telephone with free calls to landlines worldwide. The house is tucked away in a quiet spot by the church gardens, at the very heart of the village, but all the bustle of the shops and amenities of the village are within a few paces as well as the traditional village café/bar, several restaurants, wine-makers and tourist office.

Further Details:

Sablet has all amenities you may need, bakers, butcher, grocery shop (with fantastic local produce), wine boutique, newsagent, chemist, stationer, beautician, hairdressers, as well as a post office and a bank with cashpoint. An excellent fresh fish stall and a fresh goats cheese maker visit the village on Thursday mornings, market on Fridays. In the main square, there is a traditional village bar, the perfect place to watch the world go by, or read the paper over your morning coffee and croissant. The bar also serves excellent 'Prix Fixe' lunches. There is also a relaxed family restaurant, 'Le Chat qui Miaule', with a large terrace and beautiful views. Within a few minutes' drive, there are many other restaurants - from simple establishments serving locally produced, traditional provençal dishes, to the Michelin starred places for special occasions.

The village also boasts an excellent tourist office, or 'Syndicat d'Initiative', where you can find all the information you need about the village and about touring the local area, including detailed maps of marked trails straight from the village into the famous 'Dentelles de Montmirail' hills, suitable for both walkers and cyclists, and ranging from a gentle stroll to a six-hour hike. The tourist office is also a showcase for the local independent wine-makers, who have made the village famous, and you can taste and buy their wines here.

Not to be missed is a visit to some of the local wineries, which are dotted all around Sablet and its outskirts, all of them happy to show you around and let you sample their wares. Many of them host events, from jazz nights to provençal picnics in the vines at sunset.

Sablet also has a small health centre with doctors, dentists and physiotherapists as well as a chemist.
