Our "baume" provides a wonderful, spacious and cool "outdoor" area for this home.
La Baume des Pèlerins is literally about one minute’s walk from the village square.
Sablet Village ......
.....is situated in the heart of Provence's Cote du Rhone wine producing region - this relaxed, charming, fortified village is rich in history, gastronomy, leisure and cultural activities. It is, as yet, a largely undiscovered treasure, which lies at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail but allows one access to every part of Provence within easy day-tripping distance.
The oldest part of the village "inside the walls" (the remparts), is made up of narrow streets or 'ruelles", built in a circular fashion around the beehive shaped hill, which afforded inhabitants protection against numerous invaders over many centuries. The picturesque "village houses" are huddled together and provide a glimpse into the lives of Sablet's inhabitants - over hundreds of years - as they went about their daily lives doing their washing at one of the numerous fountains in the village, climbing the "Escaliers de l' Eglise" to the 12th Century church of St. Nazaire or visiting the shoemaker on the "Rue du Cordonnier."
