C'est si bon!

We spent 2 weeks in Eva's lovely apartment in the heart of L'isle sur la Sorgue. The accommodations were superb, nothing lacking for a comfortable stay. We enjoyed eating at restaurants just steps from the apartment, but we also cooked and ate "in" on a number of occasions. The location also provided us with many day trips within an easy hour drive. There are so many options in every direction, hard to choose! It was a treat to return and relax after our day trips.

Great location in lovely town

The apartment was all that we expected and more. Eva was a kind and gracious host who ensured our visit was exceptional. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there! The facilities were modern and even with the extremely hot weather we had the air conditioning was more than adequate. We hope to return soon.
