Sablé-sur-Sarthe, commonly referred to as Sablé, is a commune in the Sarthe department, in the Pays de la Loire region, in western France. It is about 50 km northeast of Angers.
The Vaige forms part of the commune's north-western border, flows southwards through the middle of the commune, then flows into the Sarthe River in the town of Sablé-sur-Sarthe.
François Fillon was mayor of Sablé from 1983 to 2001 and coincidentally has a TGV station on the line from Paris-Nantes despite a relatively small population.
The town is a hub for river cruising along the Sarthe. There is a festival of baroque music every August.
From 2010 to 2015, the motor car firm Venturi had a factory at Sablé-sur-Sarthe.
