Wir (sieben Rennradfahrer) haben eine Woche in diesem wunderschönen, großräumigen und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichteten Haus verbracht. Die Lage ist top, zentral in einem Dorf mit Shops und Bars, grandiose Aussicht von den zahlreichen Terrassen. Die Hauptküche ist sehr groß und es fehlt an nichts. alle Geräte funktionieren einwandfrei. Wir haben uns von Beginn an super wohlgefühlt und konnten uns abends und nachts gut erholen. Danke an Louise und an Caroline......wir kommen wieder!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
