This property in Sablet is to die for.
This was our second time at this property. After our short first visit we fell in love with the four terraces, spacious facility and well appointed kitchen so had to come back. Louise and John are caring hosts who answer all questions and are very amenable to all requests. If you need them they are there but respect your privacy and space. They are so pleasant to deal with which only increased our desire to come back. They treat you like family.
Sablet is perfectly situated to explore the Vaucluse. With short drives you can visit so many places like Gigondas, Vaison, Crestet, Cairanne, Rasteau, Roaix, Chateauneuf de Pape, Tavel, Lyrac, Pont D'Arc, Avignon and many other environs all within an hour drive or less. If you use the highways you can even explore further in a day. Of course for us it is being surrounded by world class wine villages and of course provencal markets every day of the week to people watch.
Our first visit was only 4 days and we left feeling deprived so this trip booked for 12 and treated the Sablet rental as a Canadian cottage where we go to re-create and ponder the wonders of the world. With more days to explore we weren't rushed or harried in the least. Of course having excellent fall weather helped. We missed the scorching heat of the summer and left before the French fall weather moved in.
Highly recommend this location and its owners.
Not sure when but we will be back.
Sablet, we will be back!
This was our third year in Sablet and the second time we stayed in this house.
And we already have booked for next year.
What more can I say that will recommend this holiday home.
First, Sablet is a perfect village to spend the summer holiday.
It is quiet but has all things needed at hand and when you are willing to drive around a little, there is enough to see and do for everybody.
The house itself is perfect.
In our first year, we stayed in 'Le petit Jardin' because we were planning a holiday for 2.
However, during our stay my son, his wife and little daughter came over and stayed with us.
There was enough room available and we all enjoyed this very much.
This year, since the family had grown to a party of 6, we rented 'Les Quatre Terrasses'.
An ideal environment for a group of 2 young children with their parents and some elderly people.
It is very spacious and has enough room to enjoy some quiet moments, if wanted.
The kitchen is very well equipped and offers all the space needed.
The four terraces all give a different view on the surrounding and the village of Sablet.
Our hosts, Louise and John, stayed in 'Le petit Jardin' during our holiday.
They make you feel very welcome, are never in the way and are available when needed.
In short, a very fine holiday home, we are looking forward to our stay in 2018.

Good House, Bad Surprises
Les Quatre Terrasses consists of two separate rental units; the house and the basement apartment. My wife and I rented the 2-bedroom house for three weeks in October, 2016 during which the owners occupied the basement apartment. The house and its furnishings are very nice and the owners were hospitable and helpful. There were, however, a couple of surprises.
The first surprise came before we left home but after we were financially committed (final payment, airfare, train fare and rental car) when we learned that we really hadn’t rented a 2-bedroom house, but rather the house with only one useable bedroom. And if we wanted to accommodate visitors for a few days (which we did) we would have to pay a substantial additional fee (in cash) for use of that second bedroom. Over the past few decades, my wife and I have rented 14 vacation houses across the U.S. and Europe, including 3 other houses in Sablet. They were all multi-bedroom/multi-bath houses and there was never any discussion about notifying the owners that friends would be visiting or paying extra to accommodate them. Since we were financially committed and had extended the invitation to our friends, we had no choice but to succumb and agree to the extra cost.
The second surprise came when we arrived at the house and saw that the common staircase connecting the 3 floors of the house extended down to the basement apartment with no door separating the two rental units. Anyone occupying the basement unit can enter the house unit by simply walking up the stairs. It became clear that we hadn’t really rented a house; we had rented some of the rooms in a house. This is not made clear in the description of the house and had we known that beforehand, we wouldn’t have rented it.
And by the way, the house has a clothes washer but the clothes drier included in the description of the house is a wire stretched across one of the terraces.
If we return to Sablet for a fifth visit, it won’t be to Les Quatre Terrasses.
Gracious of you taking the time to write a review. Thank you for your kind comments regarding our hospitality, helpfulness and quality of accommodation. We very much appreciated meeting Mary and her taking the time to call with us, not only to say goodbye and thank us for her stay, but to assure us she would recommend our holiday home to her friends. The Rental Contract was agreed at a heavily discounted rate for TWO adults and deposit paid December 2015 with balance paid after a hiccup August 2016, both via HomeAway payment system. After an uncomfortable discussion, a supplement was agreed for an additional two people - you TOLD me you would ‘pay 150 euros cash’. (For future reference, holiday home owners pay Taxe de Sejour based on number of adults x number of nights x rate - sorry to disappoint, people cannot just randomly turn up as intimated in your review).
Our rental quotes are based on, season, section of the house booked and number of guests. This pricing strategy facilitates smaller parties, like yourselves, who wish to have 2,000 sq ft space, living rooms, dining area, four terraces, laundry room (dryer in vented area - available to all) sleeping for six persons, ensuites, dressing areas etc. This booking flexibility is working with much success despite the open stairwell, as we never let out to two parties simultaneously (note other reviews). We, the owners, may or may not be present during a reservation but as a recent reviewer highlights, if we are, we are ‘always respectful of privacy and space’. I understood our access into you ‘space’ was welcome given the number of times you knocked on our apartment door to ask for assistance with the remote control and lighting the wood burning stove. Once again, I am confused, however, I apologise if our presence was actually unwelcome. Within forty eight hours of your arrival, I detected your ‘unhappiness’, vented through an embarrassing verbal outburst over an emergency telephone call made from our stairwell. I immediately offered you a FULL refund as well as assistance to find more suitable accommodation in the village. My offer was unfortunately declined which would have been the better solution for both parties, given this additional outburst in the form of, a not unexpected, scathing review. Overall a most unpleasant experience and certainly not one we would ever wish to repeat! I am reminded of the words of R Burns 'Gathering his brows like gathering storm, Nursing his wrath to keep it warm.'
A most incredible stay in a beautiful home in a wonderful village in Provence
Our stay at Quatre Terraces was beyond any expectation. Louise and John, the owners of the home, are very friendly and helpful. Louise always responded to my many questions in writing both when I first inquired about the home and after we decided to rent it but had not yet stayed there. She answered each question in a very thorough, detailed manner. Upon our arrival into the town of Sablet, we were a bit lost and so John immediately drove his car to where we were and had us follow him to the home. Louise and John were never intrusive but we enjoyed our talks with them when we saw them.
Now to the home itself: PERFECT! What a beautiful home in a great village! My husband and I stayed for a week with another couple. We stayed on different floors of the house, each having a beautiful bedroom, wonderful bathroom and a magnificent view of the surrounding countryside. The kitchen was beautifully designed with high quality appliances and cabinetry and a big dining table and it was equipped with all that anyone would need. The library and living room were also comfortable rooms in which to relax. The highlight however is the QUATRE TERRACES. We walked into the village most mornings and bought delicious pastry at the boulangerie and neighboring grocery store and then ate our breakfasts on two of the terraces off of the kitchen and living room and also enjoyed late afternoon cocktails on the terrace off of the library. There is also a small fourth terrace off of the bedroom on the top floor in which those people staying in that room can enjoy. The view from each terrace of the surrounding countryside, neighboring hilltop village of Seguret and of homes in the village was absolutely breathtaking. While it is a very old home that is a part of the village ramparts, it has been totally updated and furnished beautifully. We loved the tile floors, light colors and beautifully decorated rooms.
Our hope had been to experience life in a beautiful home in a small old village in Provence where there were few tourists ( no one spoke English in the village--this is a "real" French village). Sablet is such a town and Les Quatre Terraces is perfect!
Fabulous Luxury and Value in Rhone Wine Country
From initial contact to check out our hosts, John and Louise were tremendously helpful and friendly.
They answered all our questions promptly and even stocked our kitchen prior to our arrival on a Sunday when the local markets were closed!
Les Quatre Terraces is a fantastic place for couples travelling together. There is plenty of space for everyone, all amenities needed for gourmet meals along with multiple options for dining nearby. The place was immaculate and no detail was overlooked. We feel lucky to have found such a great place.
I strongly recommend this amazing home!
Everything as advertised, an excellent experience.
We stayed two weeks with some friends and family. Caroline, the property manager took very good care of us. The facilities were far and away above expectations. We have ties to the area and this will be our first choice for accommodations in the future.
