Looking for Olive Oil and Santons Near Sablet

Shopping near Sablet

We have been travelling to Sablet several times a year for the past 11 years. You would think that by now, there would not be anything new left for us to discover. However, that is not the case. It seems that we find someplace new every time we are in Sablet.

Our latest discovery is Les 3 Souquets, a santon workshop and boutique selling, products from the region. Their products include all things olives, such as fresh olives, olive oils, and tapenades, made from green and black olives.

Fortunately for us, Les 3 Souquets is located on D-977 (also known as Route de Vaison La Romaine) near the turnoff for Sablet. The workshop and boutique are the creation of Denis Voeux, a santonnier. He is also the owner of a small grove of olive trees in the neighbouring village of Séguret. Continue reading here for Michel’s contributor blog post by Our House in Provence.

Villages Near to Sablet

Perched on a hillside, the old walled town of Séguret is considered by locals and many others as one of the most beautiful villages in France. Séguret in Provençal means security, probably given to the town due to its geographic situation. Its dominant position allowed the villagers to observe movement in the Rhône Valley, without forgetting the château at the top.

Crestet can be described as what I like to call Burgunesque, a word I made up for places that remind me of the rural charm of Burgundy that I first fell in love with. This village is not in Burgundy but the gorgeous Provençal countryside with a view of Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail.

Vaison-la-Romaine is a moderate-sized town, surrounded by Mont Ventoux and the hills of the Dentelles de Montmirail. There are three parts to the village, an extensive Roman site, a medieval part on the hillside and a 19th-century section. Located in Haute Provence, separated from the rest of Provence geographically, Vaison has retained its ancient charms. There are many quiet, preserved hilltop villages with cobblestone streets and old stone houses, and no large building complexes or industrial parks in the area.
