Village Studio Apartment

Overview

Property

Updated: 09-Nov-2016
Apartment in Sablet, Vaucluse, Alpes Cote D'Azur, France - Traditional Hill Top Village Amid The Vineyards Of The Cote Du Rhone

Delightful, roomy studio apartment. Sablet is a village where the people you will meet in the cafes and shops are your neighbours who live and work in the village or the surrounding area. Literally 2 minutes walk from Les Maisons are the shops, cafes and restaurants that provide a convenience to your daily life whilst here. Many wineries can be found within walking distance of Les Maisons. There are 2 boulangeries (bakeries), 2 epiceries (convenience markets), a boucherie (butcher), a fleuriste, a tabac – presse, where you can pick up your daily copy of the local and Parisian daily newspapers as well as the International Herald Tribune, a banque (with cash machine), post office and medical centre with on duty doctors and a dentist. The Café des Sports is a great place to relax over a café au lait, or an early evening aperitif, maybe before dinner at one of the neighboring restaurants - Le Cornucopia, Les Remparts -or the Pizza Comme Di where you can dine outdoors in the square.

About the Owner

Hi,

We are Mary & Tony Byrne, an almost retired couple who fell in love with Provence and Sablet when really close friends of ours bought a house in the village in 2004. Our friends alerted us La Grande Maison in late 2006, mind you at that time is was not so grand.

Over the next 18 months there was lots of work from our builders, Patrice and Jean Claude and many hours from Mary & I, family and friends, who probably did not know what they were getting themselves in for when invited to join us in Provence.

Now we have 3 lovely bedrooms in the main house and a separate self contained apartment. We live in Perth in Australia but try and spend 3 months or so in Sablet each year, usually in the apartment.

We love the village and the friends we have made there. We hope to meet you the

“Independent studio flat”



Reviewed September 16, 2012 for a stay in September 2012



This one bedroom flat is spacious, attractively decorated and practically equipped - a real home from home. It is clean and comfortable and a brilliant base from which to explore the area. The scenery is wonderful with rolling hills, vineyards and olive trees. Local markets are enticing and varied. The people of Sablet are friendly and welcoming. The bakery and Cafe de Sport were firm favourites. We certainly hope to go back again.

Location

From the Owner

Sablet is a small living French village perched atop a hill and surrounded by vineyards. It is not on the tourist route, no tour buses and yet it has all you need in terms of shops, bars, and dining from standard to 5 star. We did not really intend to buy. We fell in love with the place after spending some time with our friends and when the opportunity presented itself we jumped at it. Not normally so impetuous but delighted with the decision.

Facilities

From the Owner

When we stay in Sablet we spend some time working on the house, there is always something to do. And then we either relax in the village or visit the nearby towns. Even now after 5 or 6 years we are still discovering jewels within 30 minutes of home. We love to relax at the Cafe de Sports with Bruno and Sylvie and the fine dining at Les Abeilles with Johannes and Marlise We really enjoy a BBQ in the garden just over the road from the apartment. So secluded and peaceful with views over the Cote du Rhone.
