Charming apartment in centre of Sault with small private garden
If you are looking for an interesting place to stay with loads of character this fits the bill. Tastefully painted and decorated by the owner with welcoming touches such as fresh flowers. Compact accommodation on multiple levels with pleasant small garden and separate, secure bicycle storage. The apartment is right next to the church and you will hear the bells. Sault made an excellent base for our cycling holiday.
We had a wonderful time staying at Roy and Mirielles 'I Oustau De Mireio' home in the very picturesque village of Sault. Roy and Mirielle met us upon arrival and made us feel very welcome and at home. The house itself is very 'Provence' and is beautiful and quite quirky in a nice way. Tasteful decour is relaxing and pretty. The house is situated right in the heart of the very pretty and peaceful village of Sault, ideal for visiting other places of interest in Provence and with some nice little restaurants and bars. It is very quiet and if that is your like it is ours you will thoroughly enjoy your stay here.
Exquisite Village House
This is a wonderful place to spend a holiday. The house is very conveniently situated in a quiet street in the centre of the village. It is very spacious, comfortable, exquisitely decorated and and has been equipped with the utmost thought and care. Roy and Mireille welcomed us very warmly with a gift of wine and home made jam, a lovely touch. We stayed from late August to September but would love to return in spring. Many thanks for making our stay in Sault so memorable.
Pleasant Town House in Centre Sault
We had a pleasant stay in this newly restored old town house right in the centre of Sault. Very clean and tidy property, with loads of room for two people over 3 floors. It is a very old traditional french house located in a narrow pedistrian only street, with plenty of free parking close by. Very well equipped and owners very friendly and helpful. Good value rental.
Note that the staircase is old and has a few twists and may be difficult for some, this is pointed out by the owner in the advert.
Un petit gîte plein de charme
Très agréable gîte aménagé avec goût et bien équipé. La cour intérieure, fraîche et ombragée doit être appréciable en été. Grand calme en plein cœur du village. Et une belle région un peu méconnue à découvrir !
Ein wunderschönes Domizil in einem schönen alten provencalischem Ort. Sehr zu empfehlen. Sehr charmant und wunderschön eingerichtet.
Super nette Vermieter.
Wir werden wiederkommen.
