A TRULY BEAUTIFUL, SECLUDED PROVENCAL HOUSE WITH POOL SURROUNDED BY VINEYARDS

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Sablet - ST. AMAND

Quiet, idyllic location - the perfect place to relax and unwind.

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Rosie



We arrived a couple of weeks ago from our fabulous trip.The highlight was the week at Sablet and the birthday lunch at your beautiful home. Re reading Philip's blog took me back to that memorable day. We kept it all simple, shopped the previous day at the Vaison market and popped over to Malaucene on the day to pick up 9 barbecue chickens! Our wonderful children planned and prepared. I was the 'help'! We sent Paul off in the morning so he wouldn't get in the road and all was in readiness for the arrival of everyone at 1pm. They all left when the sun set, about 10pm. What a day!



The house did you proud. It was perfect. We couldn't have entertained 24 people without your involvement and help, answering all my questions and importantly making sure that we had enough plates, cutlery etc. Apart from the lunch, we enjoyed the house, garden and pool for the remainder of the week. Linda couldn't have been more helpful, a perfect manager as I'm sure you've realised.



It was a perfect week, in a perfect house with perfect support from both you and Linda.



If we are able to, we will be back!



Best wishes and thanks

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
We love Provence and have stayed at many places in this area over the years. This year we decided to stay at St Amand in Sablet. A wonderful choice….
The booking process was friendly, simple and professional. The house was exactly as the owners had said it would be – spacious, beautifully clean, simply furnished with quality items, and in a delightful private situation.
We were a family of five and we had plenty of space to spread out and it is easy to find your own private spot to relax if you want to. There are lots of shady areas in the garden for your afternoon siesta. The pool was crystal clear and very inviting.
The house is run very efficiently with a House Manager to meet and greet you, gardeners that visit weekly and a pool man that also visits weekly.
The kitchen is very well equipped, including an impressive professional stove. It’s obvious that the owners love to cook! We mainly cooked on the BBQ in the outside kitchen and all of our meals were enjoyed outside sitting on the terrace. Wonderful…..
The village of Sablet is a very easy walk away – about 15 minutes – and here we found everything we needed for our every day provisions: a butcher, 2 bakeries, a small grocery store, and a bank. If needed, there are also supermarkets close by in Sarrians, Carpentras and Vaison la Romaine.
There are lots of activities in the area. We hired bikes from Vaison and enjoyed exploring the local area and vineyards. The owners leave comprehensive information about the area, including walking and cycling maps.

We were very reluctant to leave and would happily have stayed another week if there had been availability for us to do so.
We would certainly recommend you stay here if you can!

Tranquil stay in rural Provence

  • 5 out of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at St Armand. The house is surrounded by vineyards, with some really spectacular views towards Sablet from the terrace. It is a great place to experience rural Provence.
The house is large and well equipped; there were only two of us on this holiday, but it would easily accommodate quite a large family. Lots of space inside and outside, with a good pool and barbecue area.
We found lots to do in the region, including visits to Orange and to Vaison la Romaine. Seguret would be quite easy to walk to; we made the mistake of driving there. Really interesting and tasty restaurants nearby – les Abeilles in Sablet; and we were very lucky to find Tuilleries for a good value, rural Provencal experience.
Yes; we’ll be back.

Our wonderful stay at St Amand, Sablet

  • 5 out of 5
We had the most wonderful relaxing family holiday in Sablet. Such a pretty small village – just as we all imagined it would be. This was our first visit to France and we cannot wait to return.
We choose this beautiful house, St Amand, as our base. We couldn't have wished for anything better.
Dealing with the owners was easy, the booking process uncomplicated and they were exceptionally helpful.
St Amand is gorgeous! The photos and description are absolutely spot on. The whole place is beautifully clean, uncluttered, very tastefully furnished and very well appointed. Everything we needed, we found.
On arrival, we were met and greeted by the very friendly house manager. She helped us to settle in after our long journey before leaving us to relax and plan our days.
The owners leave a very generous Welcome Pack – the local wine being enjoyed by all of us later that evening whilst sitting on the terrace and enjoying the magnificent views of the village. Quite spectacular.
All your daily needs are easily catered for in the village of Sablet without the need for driving. There are numerous weekly markets in the area, the nearest one being in Vaison La Romaine. A visit is highly recommended!
There is so much to do in this area:
We visited some of the very pretty villages in the area, Gordes, Sault, Segueret, Gigondas, Vacqueras, Beaumes de Venise to name a few.
We went on a wine tasting course with Olivier Hickman, we did a cookery course with Sabine Suter, we walked in the Dentilles.
Oh yes – and we also spent days simply relaxing by the pool and enjoying the tranquillity of St Amand.
We have no hesitation in recommending St Amand to any future guests. Indeed, we would encourage you to book. You will not be disappointed.

Relax in Provence

  • 5 out of 5
Tucked away in the beautiful countryside of Provence, is St Armand. A relaxing and peaceful jewel of a house with its surrounding gardens of lavender bushes, olive and fruit trees and neighbouring vineyards.

The house itself is superbly equipped and everything you might need is there and of high quality and well maintained. The bedrooms are well furnished and the extremely comfortable beds encourage afternoon siestas and dreamy nights' sleep.

The pool area is delightful with comfortable sun beds and umbrellas, and the trees too provide dappled light under which to shelter from the sun if needs be. Watching the sun go down on Sablet provides a glorious backcloth for dinner on the terrace.

There is plenty to see in the surrounding areas, if you feel the need to go out and explore, and Sablet has some friendly restaurants and shops - beware the patisseries!

All the descriptions of this beautiful holiday villa are more than accurate and I would recommend it to others wholeheartedly.

Visited once, returning is a case of when, not if.

A stunning house in a beautiful area

  • 5 out of 5
We planned our stay at St Amand following a recommendation from friends who had stayed here during the summer of 2012.
We were thrilled by the house: it's very spacious, extremely well maintained and cared for, spotlessly clean and perfectly prepared by the house manager. The garden was also a delight, with lots of space and shade.
We did one big shop at a supermarket en route to the house - the owner provided all information for doing this prior to our arrival. Anything else we needed on a daily basis, such as the fresh criossants and bread, which we all became addicted to, we found in the local shops in the village of Sablet, stopping for a morning coffee at the Bar des Sports.
We visited the local markets in Vaison and Carpentras, we had a morning visit to Gordes and tested out many local restaurants! And we also found time to enjoy the beautiful garden and relax around the crystal clear pool.
We were very reluctant to leave, and we plan to return - but for a longer stay next time.
We would heartily recommend a stay at St Amand.

Heaven in the Provinces

  • 5 out of 5
The holiday was everything we have come to expect from Provence. St Armand is nestled amongst the vineyards with fantastic views of Sablet. We spent hours gazing upon the village, devouring croissants, patés, cheeses and quaffing wine.

The house is exceptionally kept and provides everything you could need.

The pool provided fantastic relief from the mid-day sun. A great hit with the adults, as well as the kids.

You can while away the days quite easily at the house as there is plenty of room. Alternatively venture out to many of the close by villages and towns like Gigondas, Séguret, Beaumes-de-Venise, and Vaison-la-Romaine.

In essence we had fun, and would recommend this place 100%. Thanks for letting have a slice of heaven.

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.
