Sablet’s closest neighbor, Seguret is a comfortable walk through the vineyards. Medieval Seguret is a village perche, carved into the rocky hllside above the River Ouveze.
Classifieded as one of the most beautiful villages in France, its cobblestone streets wind up between the ancient houses, to the ruins of the ancient chateau, typical of many Provencal villages.
Although a part of the Cote du Rhone wine growing region, Seguret also has its own appellation Roaix-Seguret Appellation Controlee, which is the home of many fine wines.
Each year at Christmas time, Seguret hosts one of the largest “Expositions” of Santons, the traditional Provencal craft of carving small figures dressed in traditional costume. The Exposition is the work of local Master Santonniers (Artisans), who set up their displays of Santons in Christmas Nativity scenes – Provencal style. The scene includes the usual creche along with miniature models of characters in the village – the baker, the butcher, the grocer, the shoemaker etc. etc.
They also display the Provencal Christmas traditions – one of which is the 13 Deserts eaten on Christmas Eve.
