Centre ville apartment
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 5
At the northeast gateway to Provence and only 20 minutes by train, bus or car from Avignon (which is only 2.5 hours via TGV from Paris), Isle sur la Sorgue is known as the Venice of France with its many water ways and wheels. It has over 250 antique shops and is the 2nd largest antique centre outside Paris. Our apartment is in centre ville and just around the corner are its many cafes/restaurants and the markets held on Sunday are the best in France.
While there is plenty to do in town, buses go 100 metres away from our apartment to many local attractions including Fountaine de Vaucluse, Aix-en-Provence, Marseille (the start of the French Riviera) and Avignon. It is also close to Mont Ventoux (skiing, hiking) and villages of Rousillon, Gordes, Menerbes (Peter Mayle fame), La Coste (Marquis de Sade and Pierre Cardin chateau residence). Not too far away are other attractions including the Orange amphitheater, Pont du Gard, Nimes, Arles and St Remy.
The climate being Provence in the south of France is perfect - most days of sunshine of anywhere in France.

L'Isle sur la Sorgue
You can stay all week in Isle sur la Sorgue and as well as the market days there are lots of other things to enjoy: strolling along the waterways, in the parks or through the narrow cobblestoned streets in centre ville; having a coffee in the main old church square or along the river bank; going for a swim in the local heated indoor, and outdoor in summer, pools; browsing through the couple of main shopping streets or in the permanent antique shops; feeding the ducks; having a glass of wine and some nibblies at the wine shop/deli in town just around the corner from our place; canoeing in the canals, cycling around town or from village to village or going horseriding; or, you can just relax in our apartment/on our balcony, cooking your own meals from local produce or eating out at one of the nearby restaurants/cafes. There are lots of festivals in town or nearby especially during summer but the weekly markets (Sun, Thurs) in themselves are some of the biggest we have ever seen. There is also the twice yearly antique markets (largest outside Paris) on Easter and during August.
