"La Trouvaille"-- Beautiful old stone house in delightful Sablet
Unlike many surrounding villages, Sablet's center is not bisected by a major roadway, so the round medieval center is refreshingly free of most vehicle traffic and strolling the narrow spiraling streets and stairs to the 11th century church and its little park at the top of the village is a delight. Place du Barry provides a splendid view of rooftops, vineyards and provides an orientation table that identifies villages in the distant hills.
