Sablet Summer Festivals A Reason to Visit the Vaucluse
For those of you who don’t know, Sablet is a small village (population 1264) located at the base of the jagged Dentelles de Montmirail west of Mont Ventoux in the Vaucluse region of Provence, France. The village sits on a hill bordering the rich alluvial plain of the Ouvèze River.
Although the first fortifications of the village were most likely built in the 9th century to ward off attacks by the Saracens, the walls and towers were not started until the 14th century. These ramparts have recently been restored by the Association des Compagnons des Barrys.
Sablet is filled with charming and picturesque shaded streets adorned with flowers, passageways with exposed beams, and fountains. The village is located in the heart of Côte du Rhône wine country.
