The Location

Scenes from L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, where the house is located.

The apartment is right in the heart of the superb market town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, known as the antiques capital of France, with a great concentration of antiques stores and a famous Sunday market for antiques and bric-a-brac, as well as food. This picturesque town of waterways and a historic centre has many restaurants, cafes and stores, and the town is alive year-round.

The perched hill-top villages of the Luberon, like Menerbes, Gordes, Bonnieux, Roussillon, Lacoste, Goult, and Oppede le vieux are all 15-30 minutes away.

Fontaine de Vaucluse is a couple of miles upstream, the medieval city of Avignon is 30 minutes, and within an hour are Aix-en-Provence, St Remy, Mont Ventoux, Les Baux de Provence, Orange, and the start of the Rhone wine trail.

You can make a comfortable day-trip to the Cote d'Azur from Monte Carlo to St Tropez, Marseille, the fishing village of Cassis and the calanques, Arles, Nimes, the Camargue, the Alps, the Gorges du Verdon, and the Rhone wine trail all the way to Lyon.

L'isle sur la Sorgue is a beautiful town, and this apartment in the heart of everything is just perfect for two. Everything you could need is there, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The little balcony overlooking the street is the best people watching place, while enjoying a glass or two of the local wine. Loved the place, people,and apartment. Thank you Eva, we will be back and would recommend others to stay in your lovely property.

Such attention to detail!

Previous travellers have covered this wonderful property extremely well. Ditto, ditto,ditto!!I has it all, wonderful location very close to the bus stop, leisurely 10 minute walk to the station, all amenities close by, plus an apartment that had every single item that you could wish for. When it was renovated, attention to detail must have been in the mind of the owners. They did not scrimp on cost to ensure that the property was as comfortable if not more so than most homes. Details such as, adequate power points in perfect locations, lighting to suit all purposes, excellent quality fittings in all rooms. Communication between Eva and myself was very quick and I did appreciate that Eva was available to assist if required. As a lone traveller, one that uses public transport only, a person that hires apartment accommodation regularly this was the ultimate. As for Isle sur la Sorgue, loved it!! Many thanks,

A superb apartment in an ideal setting in Provence

Our stay was wonderful. The apartment was superb and in a lovely location amid the bustling old town of L'isle sur la Sorgue. It had all one would wish for in an apartment and the bed was so comfortable. Considering it is in the heart of the town we could hardly hear the quiet mumble of people below. The markets on Sunday and Thursday were brilliant as was the abundance of places to eat in the evenings. We enjoyed Umami and La Balade de Saveurs the best. During the week there was superb Jazz singing from Leonard Blaire right on our doorstep and other music in various places during the week. Also the display of the use of the Nego chin (boats) on the Sorgue and the races on the river with them was fun too. This apartment was an ideal base to visit the Luberon villages, Fontain de Vaucluse, Mont Ventoux and the Camargue.We would definitely recommend this apartment. Niels and Eva were so kind and ensured out stay was a success.
