“Amazing!”
Reviewed February 28, 2012 for a stay in June 2010

My husband and I stayed at Le Fer a Cheval for 3 weeks and it was amazing! Sablet is a cute town with easy access to a wonderful market, hiking, great restaurants, and bigger cities if you want a break from small town life. The owner is super helpful, even offering suggestions and contacts for activities (wine tours, cooking classes, etc.). The house is clean, spacious, and stocked with everything you need. The best part is the patio - a great place for reading, eating, relaxing. We can't say enough great things about Le Fer a Cheval.

“Charming”
Reviewed February 23, 2012 for a stay in August 2011

We spent a lovely two weeks a Fer a Cheval. The house more than met our expectations. It is spacious & a lot of care has been taken with the furnishings to give it a charm of its own.

It is very centrally located & a short walk downhill to the bakery, butcher etc. It neighbours the church (bells only chime by day) & is in a very quiet part of the villalge.

We used the upstairs sun roof for eating most of the time although at times it was a bit too hot to sit outdoors & possibly a bit more fixed shade is necessary.

There was plenty of information on the local region in the house & the owner, who lives nearby, was a good source of local knowledge.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Fer a Cheval. There is lots of good cycling around, some wonderful markets nearby & Sablet is a great place from which to explore the area.

Parking was a bit tricky at times but usually achieveable not too far f rom the house.

There is quite a steep & tricky staircase to beware of & the house is definitely not suitable for young children or older people.

We loved coming home after a day out to be welcomed by the neighbour's tabby cat & sit on the sunroof with something cool to drink & partake of the local produce.

We were also lucky enough to be there for the Seguret Wine Festival which was great.

“Would highly recommend”
Reviewed February 20, 2012 for a stay in August 2011

We have stayed at Le Fer a Cheval twice and on both occassions have had a wonderful holiday. The house is very well equipped with a lovely atmosphere and good quality furnishings. The owners are exceptionally friendly and helpful and always on hand if you have any problems. Sablet is a lovely village, with boulangerie, supermarket, restaurants, bar and tabac and there is so much to do in the surrounding area. We would definitely stay again.

“Great spot in an almost medieval French village”
Reviewed February 16, 2012 for a stay in May 2011

Clean, tidy, traditional, excellent all round. Right in the oldest part of Sablet. Very compact: perhaps not perfect for children, the property is actually part of the old town defensive walls. Public parking close by, short walk to boulangerie etc. Top kitchen, excellent outside deck area although it is close to the neighbours.

Excellent value. CD

“idyllic provence experience in working village”
Reviewed February 16, 2012 for a stay in August 2010

We stayed for a week in Le Fer a Cheval. The cottage is both historic and comfortable, with all the facilities you could want. The terrace overlooking church gardens is superb for breakfast, drinks, dinner. Sablet is a great base from which to tour the villages, vineyards and mountains. Our host could not have been more helpful in getting us set up, and advice on our next journey.
