A truly beautiful, secluded Provencal house with pool surrounded by vineyards

Bedrooms 4
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Haut-Vaucluse - 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

This is the first time we have rented a house that is as exactly as the photos show it to be!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - we wished we had booked for longer than two weeks.

The owners do everything they possibly can to ensure that you have a relaxing holiday in their home. From supplying you with lots of information on travel options, activities available in the area and even details on supermarkets in the area. A comprehensive House Guide is available on arrival along with a file containing lots of leaflets and brochures on things to do in the area.

The house is spotless and so well equipped. The beds are extremely comfortable and the bed linen luxurious.

We made very good use of the BBQ and outside kitchen and we managed to have all our meals outside on the terrace enjoying the spectacular views.

We look forward to our next stay at St Amand.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

A lovely area and a wonderful house…

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with our stay at St Amand. Everything was just as the advert shows.

Dealing with the Owners was a very pleasant experience. They couldn’t do enough for us.

Booking was simple and easy with the Owners keeping in touch at all times, even calling us just before we left Australia to wish us a safe journey!

This is a lived in and loved family home – so it’s very easy to relax from the moment you arrive. The house is light, airy and uncluttered – and exceptionally clean. The beds are so comfortable and the bed linen beautiful. Each of the bathrooms had a very generous supply of towels, along with a hairdryer and shower gel and soap.

If you love cooking, you really will enjoy using the very well equipped kitchen. Shopping for food at the market in Vaison La Romaine was a wonderful experience. We enjoyed plenty of BBQ meals as well sitting by the pool.

The Owners leave plenty of information about the area and a very useful house guide.

We explored the area, enjoyed lots of delicious wine from the area, did a cookery class and enjoyed many pleasant walks, but we also made time to enjoy relaxing by the pool, with pool towels being provided.

Our stay flew by, and we were very sad to have to leave this perfect spot in Provence but we hope to return very soon.

Thank you for sharing your home!

Wonderful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to take my family on a memorable family holiday so the location and property were important to us. We were not disappointed by either. We had been to the area briefly once before and knew there was lots to see and do particularly for wine lovers. Sitting round the table in the shade lingering over breakfast, lunch or dinner became part of our daily routine. When it all got too hot the fabulous pool was there to cool us off. With a fully equipped kitchen and an outside kitchen area it was much appreciated by the foodie in our group! Four equally sized bedrooms make sure no one has to worry about the box room.... spotlessly clean too! A memorable holiday.

Our family escape to Provence

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for meeting up with our grown up family who are scattered around Europe.

The area is stunning and unspoilt; Sablet is a working wine village.

The house is just perfect for families.

We were six adults with plenty of space. It was easy to find your own quiet space if you needed it…in the house or in the garden.

The house was beautifully clean and very well equipped. The pool was crystal clear and helped us to keep cool in the wonderful summer heat.

The booking and payment process was dealt with in a professional and friendly way. The owners were very helpful in assisting us when it came to arranging our travel.

We did a wine tour and a cookery school - all information being provided by the owners.

We also walked, swam and had siestas by the pool!

For renters with a greater sense of adventure there are many walks and cycle trails in the area. The owners leave comprehensive information about the area and activities available.

We enjoyed all of our meals outside – the BBQ and outside kitchen being well used by us. We enjoyed making the most of the lovely fresh local food that we shopped for at the many local markets (again, a very comprehensive list of local markets being left in the Information File), all washed down by the wonderful local wines.

We booked to eat at a couple of restaurants recommended by the owners. L’Oustalet in Gigondas being our favourite!

Sitting on the terrace at night with the amazing view of Sablet in the distance was just wonderful. The sunsets were pretty spectacular.

We highly recommend staying in this lovely house - it really is nestled among the vineyards.

Pleasant property close to nice village

  • 4 of 5

Spacious property with a good layout . Six adults in our party , plenty of places to sit inside and out . Kitchen well equipped ,Beds comfortable , shower rooms adequate ( Only two toilets ).

It was really nice to eat outside on the patio in the evenings enjoying the sunsets with a gorgeous view of Sablet .

I have given it four stars instead of five for the following reasons:

It is now looking a little tired in places, outside could do with paint .

Swimming pool is a little dated (shallow) and needs some TLC! Fine for young children.. maybe not so enticing for adults.

However it's location is really good , we enjoyed exploring the area and did lots of wine tasting !

Just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at St Amand was a delight.

This was our last week of a four week trip to France and it was the perfect end to our wonderful holiday.

We mainly stayed in and around Sablet. Shopping in the village each morning and relaxing by the pool in the afternoons became our routine.

The weather was lovely for September which meant we used the BBQ most of the time, eating outside taking in the splendid views from the terrace.

We would highly recommend a stay at St Amand: the house is spotless, you have everything you could possibly need, and the owners are very engaging and pleasant to deal with.

We hope to return.

A relaxing, warm winter retreat in Provence

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at the St Amand villa, located in expansive, open vineyards, just outside of the historical village of Sablet, over the festive-new year period. Of course it was cool, being winter, but the weather remained friendly for us and the skies were blue and clear. The villa is spacious and extremely well equipped for any guests and occasions, with abundant living areas, and very warm and cosy. Following a two week traveling family holiday through the UK, it was a godsend to unwind and relax in such a beautiful and comfortable setting.

We mixed enjoying spending time as a family together in the villa, cooking ourselves in a wonderful kitchen, with exploring the Vaucluse region - the vineyards and farms, the villages, the restaurants, Mont Ventoux, the Roman history, and the more modern Provence history.

Linda, the villa manager, combined with Rosie, the owner, were of great assistance in all aspects of our stay, and made everything very simple for us mostly non-French speaking people, from clear arrival details, and throughout our entire stay. We thank them very much for their attention and hospitality.

We were very content with our stay and would come again anytime.

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.
