About the home
Le Cordonnier is a traditional village house with a rooftop terrace located in the hilltop village of Sablet. It is centuries old, built of stone with two foot thick walls for keeping the house cool in summer and topped with a traditional Provençal tiled roof.
The property has been recently renovated by its present English owners, retaining much of its original charm derived from the massive stone walls and exposed beams. When they started renovating this property, they found old bits of leather and shoes in the stone walls along with some rolled up bank notes, evidence that years ago it had been the home of a thrifty shoemaker.
The house is furnished in a traditional and comfortable style, with a Provençal feel and decorating. The owners live adjacent to the property, and are always willing to offer help and advice to make a stay in Provence among the most memorable and happy travel experiences.
Le Cordonnier is located in the centre of Sablet, an unspoiled fortified village which clusters around its 12th century church, and is enclosed by ramparts and towers dating from the 14th century.

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur / Vaucluse region
The region has a rich cultural heritage which can be discovered in the villages and towns around the city of Avignon. Villages with medieval churches, and abundant evidence of the Roman legacy. For nature lovers, the Carmargue must be visited on a one-day outing, as well as the spectacular canyons of the Ardèche and Verdon rivers.
The wild countryside of the Drôme with its lavender fields is magnificent, nestled in the shadow of the famous Mt. Ventoux, the first mountain of the alpine chain 1,910m high. From its top, the visitor is offered an unrivalled view that extends on the north-east, to almost the whole Alps. Two hours away towards to the south, one can experience the wonderful Mediterranean shore with its sandy beaches and the cosmopolitan town of Marseille.
The Sablet area
Sablet is a lively traditional wine-producing village. As such there is no shortage of places where one can sample the high quality Côtes du Rhône that bears its name. There is a good family-run restaurant in the centre of the village, and many others good establishments within easy reach. Sablet offers all the necessary shops : butchers, bakers, groceries, general stores, and deli, and of course the traditional French bar with its shaded patio.
There is swimming, tennis, and horseback riding nearby. The backdrop to the village are the beautiful hills of the Dentelles de Montmirail which offer superb hikes, gentle walks and marked mountain-bike trails (bike rental is available in the village). The nearby town of Vaison la Romaine (10kms) is renowned for its Roman vestiges, and boasts the best Provence market in the region. It also hosts many summer concerts in its antique amphitheatre.

Me and my husband live in Ukraine and our daughter lives in the USA. It was wonderful to meet in Provence and to spend a week together. We had a wonderful time also because Le Cordonnier was a nice place to stay. The house was beautiful and Sarah was very helpful.
We are dreaming to return.

This is a lovely cottage in a lovely location. Sarah is a perfect host, there if you need her, discrete if you don't. The village is lovely, the local butcher sells some of the best meat my husband has ever tasted, the florist sells a small range of locally grown fresh fruit and veg and one of the bread shops (Festival, near the lavoir) sells really excellent bread.
Even if you are exhausted after a long drive do not eat in the Pizzeria les Remparts....I had the worst pizza I have ever had in my life there (although my husband disagreed, he thinks it was only the second worst!)
The team in the tourist office are really helpful, they offer tastings of the local wine, we found it much better to buy from them as we could compare different wines without running the risk of telling a vineyard owner that we don't like his/.her wine enough to buy some. The prices in the Tourist information were about the same as we would have paid in a local vineyard or supermarket. BTW this area abounds with good quality wine, it just comes down to personal taste and how much you want to spend.
