"La Trouvaille"-- Beautiful old stone village house in Sablet
"La Trouvaille" Sleeps 4-6 (2 Bedrooms)
Built into the 12th-century ramparts of the medieval part of the village, this beautiful old Provençal stone house serves as a local landmark because of the hole in the wall--'le trou'--which creates the terrace. Ideal for visitors who want to feel the pulse of village life, this house has a crêperie and a boulangerie as neighbors.
Throughout, the beauty of walls of locally-quarried stone, traditional Provençal ceilings of plaster and dark exposed beams, and handsome traditional tiles give “La Trouvaille” its special warmth and character. The house is spacious and inviting, providing an unusual degree of privacy with separate relaxation areas on each floor.
Furnishings reflect the owners' enthusiasm for Provençal style and regional crafts. Handsome antiques, shabby chic “finds” and quality reproductions are placed alongside comfortable leather sofas and more casual seating. Owners have taken special care to add modern comforts, while sacrificing none of the house's Provençal charm.
