house Sabi

A Typical Kyoto House


With purely Japanese architecture, comfortable and newly renovated, Sabi House recalls Kyoto houses from the turn of the last century. Tucked away on a small lane, the house opens onto a large western living room and extends into a Japanese living room overlooking a small garden. 

On the second floor, two warm and bright bedrooms with tatami flooring have both western and Japanese sleeping arrangements. 

Ground floor : Kitchen / dining room, Japanese sitting room, bathroom and toilet, Japanese garden.

Upper level: Japanese bedroom with futons, Japanese bedroom with a double bed.

The house is located several meters from the favorite walk of local Kyoto people, the Philosopher's Path. 

Near the house is Fresco, a small supermarket with fresh produce, for those who want to cook at home, as well as a delicious bakery, Yamada Bakery. 

Bus lines near the house provide access to all famous neighborhoods and sights around the city. 

Our opinion

Quiet and close to the Philosopher's Path, Sabi House has a space and aesthetic unique to Kyoto for a stay with either family or friends. 
Experience the lovely and relaxing sensation of looking at a small Japanese garden from the sitting room, lying on the tatami.

Très bon accueil de Clément, avec qui nous avions déjà eu affaire auparavant. La maison est spacieuse et confortable. Néanmoins l'équipement de cuisine ( casseroles, planches ,etc.. notamment) est très léger et insuffisant pur cuisiner. Comme c'était notre second séjour à Kyoto, nous avons pu nous débrouiller sans problème pour les transports.

Un énorme merci à Clément pour ses conseils de visite des temples en dehors des circuits touristiques habituels, nous avions l'impression qu'il nous avait privatisé Kyoto. Bravo Philippe

3 jours, c'est bien trop court pour tout découvrir de Kyoto...le quartier de la maison Sabi est tellement accueillant, on a envie d'y rester!

Nous avons adoré nos 4 nuits passées à Kyoto dans la maison Sabi. C'est un petit havre de paix, agréable, fonctionnel, très bien placé à côté du chemin de la philosophie et de toutes une série de bus. Tous les endroits recommandés par Clement nous ont plu. Le restaurant Omen, à 10min à pied, est un pur délice! Le petit bar d'en face est un endroit chaleureux pour boire un verre (de Saké) avant de se coucher. Bref nous sommes tombés au bon endroit, dans une des plus belles villes du monde, à l'instar de Paris ou Rome!
