Overview

About the property

A newly renovated traditional four bedroom townhouse in a quiet street in the heart of L'Isle sur la Sorgue.

Original features combined with modern amenities and outdoor space.

The perfect place to experience authentic Provence.

A few steps from markets, cafes and restaurants.

Cute, charming and comfortable. Bienvenue en Provence!

Experience the charm and authenticity of our townhouse, from the moment you open the wooden shutters and look out over the terracotta roof tops, accompanied to the sound of the old church bells.

The house is on three levels and has retained the beauty of yesteryear in the form of exposed wooden beams, and the wide spiral staircase laid with traditional tiles.

The house is in a quiet street tucked away in the very centre of the old town. The house is newly restored and furnished, authentic, charming and comfortable. It has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which is ensuite. The house sleeps up to 8.

Downstairs is the living room, with tv, including English language and international channels, and a fully equipped kitchen. The back door opens onto a secluded courtyard where you can sit out and enjoy dinner or a glass of wine.

Up the traditional tiled circular staircase to the first floor, where there is a bedroom with queen size double bed, a bedroom with two single beds, and a newly renovated (December 2017) bathroom with bath, shower and WC.

On the second floor are a bedroom with a single bed that can be extended to sleep two, and the master bedroom with a queen size double bed. Off the master bedroom is a beautiful new ensuite bathroom with a shower, WC bathroom suite and also a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Interaction with Guests

Our local agent will be available to meet you at the house on arrival and answer any queries.

The Neighbourhood

L'Isle sur la Sorgue is a beautiful Provençal market town that is delightful to stroll around. The river Sorgue meanders around and through the centre of the town. Along the riverbanks are many functioning water wheels, one of which is visible from the house. L'Isle is world renowned as a centre for antiques, with hundreds of permanent shops and dealers, two annual antique fairs (Easter and mid-August) and a huge antiques market every Sunday, the largest in France outside Paris.

The town bursts to life every Thursday and Sunday with one of the biggest and best French markets in the region. There is nothing like experiencing the bustle, the aromas and the extraordinary fresh local produce of the market, all a few moments from the townhouse. From mountains of olives and tapenade, amazing cheeses and saucissons, rotisseries of chicken, Moroccan tagines and paellas, to tables laden with lavender and artisanal soaps. It is a marvellous assault on all the senses.

L'Isle is the gateway to the Luberon region with its stunning perched villages and fields of lavender. The whole of Provence is within an easy drive - 20 minutes to Avignon, 20 minutes to Menerbes, an hour to Aix-en-Provence, Marseille and Arles, and 2 1/2 hours to St Tropez and the French Riviera.

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay in Isle sur La Sorgue. Close to everything but on a quiet street. Spacious , big bedrooms and bathrooms. Well equipped kitchen with modern appliances and nice bright windows.

Nicely decorated, comfortable furniture and great beds! We didn't meet the owner but Sarah the property manager was wonderful, prompt, knowledgable and accommodating when we added an extra day. Thank you to Simon the owner to for letting us extend our stay. Isle sur La Sorgue is such a beautiful place and I do t think you could do better than this for a special stay. The water wheel in the distance out the bathroom window completed it all!

Everything you need, right in the heart of the town

  • 4 of 5

As other reviewers have mentioned, it can be a little tricky to find but the driving instructions we received were perfect and we had no trouble arriving or parking in the square that's just a few steps from the door of this townhouse.

Simon and Sarah (property manager) were very helpful and quick to respond to messages both before and during our stay. Sarah was very gracious and patient when we had to keep changing our arrival time.

The townhouse is a very short walk from shops, restaurants, and the picturesque sites of lovely L'Isle sur la Sorgue. It had everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen is small but adequate for a bit of cooking. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean and modern. The wifi worked great.

We were very pleased with our choice and would not hesitate to recommend Simon's place.

Spacious apartment with courtyard in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Simons house. It was even better than the photos !

There are three spacious bedrooms and a single all with quaint shutters opening to natural light. It felt typical French. It has two spacious bathrooms and the kitchen is equipped with everything you need.

At the end of the street is the shops and further down the supermarket. We easily walked everywhere. Cafes and restaurants are also within 200 metres. The apartment feels like it has been renovated yet kept the charm. There are stairs to the bedrooms and bathrooms but easy to climb. Very quiet street. Sarah was waiting for us when we arrived so everything went smoothly. Do use their instructions on how to find the place as it is a typical village with narrow one way streets adding to the charm. We found it easily using the instructions rather than following map. Would totally recommend it.

Great holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (wife and 3 teenagers) loved this townhouse. The location is quiet, and the townhouse had everything we needed: plenty of space, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, w/d, and working wifi (for the teens - haha). Sarah was very helpful getting us set up, and providing helpful information about the area. Shopping is steps away, and we found L'Isle to be a lovely town. My family definitely wants to return, and we'd gladly stay at this townhouse if available.

True Country French Experience

  • 5 of 5

The home was as advertised, well appointed extremely clean with plenty of room. Steps from everywhere. L'isle sur la Sorgue offers a balance of a small country French town with enough activities and conveniences of a small city. The property manager, Sarah, was easy to work with and quite responsive as was the owner Simon.

Closest major airport is Marseille - a 50 minute drive. Avignon airport (20 mins) and Nimes airport (65 mins) are also close.

Avignon TGV station is also nearby - a half hour drive.

If you don't have a car, no problem - about a 5 minute walk from the house is the train station of L'Isle-sur-Sorgue - Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, with direct trains to Avignon (centre and TGV), Marseille and Marseille airport and elsewhere.

If you bring your car or hire a car, there is free parking nearby on the main streets immediately outside the centre, and some free parking lots about 200m from the house.
