Located on the banks of the Sorgue river in the heart of Provence, the town of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue has the feel of an island with its extensive canal systems and waterways. Dating back to the early 13th century, the village is the third largest center for fine collectibles and antiques hosting large biannual exhibitions and teeming Sunday morning markets.
Charming and very walkable, there are plenty of great local cafes, provencal markets, galleries and boutiques. The department of Vaucluse is home to some of the most iconic villages of Provence including the surrounding regions of Avignon, Lubéron, Arles, the Alpilles mountains, and Aix-en-Provence. From Mount Vaucluse and the town’s castle you’ll have amazing views over the Luberon’s gentle hillsides, vineyards and scenic villages.
