My four-year-old son, a friend and I stayed at La Saugie for the first week in August this year. I had already been in touch with Alison by email some weeks before, and, based on our interactions then, I knew that we would feel welcome and at home the moment we arrived - and I wasn't wrong.
Sablet is a beautiful hillside town; and La Saugie was a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding region - as well as being a refuge when we decided to spend the day relaxing. The Avignon suite suited our needs down to the ground: the bedrooms were spacious - I loved the bathroom! - and there was nothing better than throwing open the doors in the morning onto the gardens and the swimming pool.
But, really, what made the trip for us were Alison and Steve and their family. They were hospitable without being overbearing; they were wholly approachable at all times, and more than willing to accommodate our needs in terms of extras for the room, and trips out. More importantly: we enjoyed their company immensely and felt as much a part of their family as a week allows.
We will definitely be coming back!
