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.

Continuer à offrir cette qualité, c'était impeccable.

Nous voici de nouveau à Kyoto, cette fois dans le quartier du Chemin de la philosophie. Clément est de nouveau là pour nous accueillir dans notre nouvelle maison. Nous sommes bien évidemment la pour les cerisiers en fleurs. Sur la table basse, la carte de Kyoto est étalée: cela fait la 4ème fois que nous venons à Kyoto: que pouvons-nous encore découvrir? Et bien Clément nous a trouvé de très beaux endroits: Taizo-in, Daikaku-ji...avec les cerisiers en plus! Nous sommes très contents de notre séjour.

Everything about the house was fine and as advertised and expected. It was really in an ordinary Japanese neighbourhood but also very convenient for major sites like Ginkakuji and the Path of Philosophers. The only slight quibble I have is that we were told to contact one named 'travel angel' to arrange arrival but were contacted by someone else completely, and the office staff would not explain why the change had been made or confirm that the substitution was legitimate. But everything was fine when we actually got there.

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
