Modern 3 bedroomed house on two floors with own private pool. Interior has been newly decorated and it is tastefully set out.

There are two parking spaces in front of the double garage to the side of the property. The property is located in a quite close with about 12 similar houses all built about 15 years ago.

Lovely house in a beautiful town.

  • 5 of 5

This was or first visit to L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, and it certainly won't be our last. The town is so pretty, and the house is conveniently located just a gentle 10-15 minute stroll away along the river. The house itself is set in a quiet and pretty development, and the back garden is almost entirely secluded. The owners have made sure that the house is well-equipped and comfortable, as well as being spotlessly clean. We had everything we needed for a thoroughly enjoyable stay, and we had a really relaxing time reading under the shady awning or lounging about by the pool. As lovers of ancient history, we chose this location because of its proximity to major Roman sites, all of which are within an hour's easy driving away. Don't miss the museum in Arles, which has some fantastic exhibits. L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue itself is a charming town, full of lovely canals and waterways, restaurants and little shops. The people are very friendly and we had a warm welcome everywhere. We really can't recommend it highly enough, and we can't wait to go back again!

Isle Sur La Sorges Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious, clean and lived up to the owners description in every way. It is situated in a beautiful and quiet area of the town and the domestics were professionally carried out. Made to feel very welcomed. Lovely pool. Enjoyable walk to the bakers, where petit dejeuner is available if desired. The town is a short walk and is served by many eating places and wonderful market. There are 2 restaurants/cafe within a few hundred yards by the picturesque Parting of the Waters.

We were a party of 5 adults and we would have no hesitation in recommending this property. We hope to return ourselves.

Very comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed ourselves here. We flew to Marseille and hired a car and the drive was an easy drive, just over an hour mainly on autoroutes. We'd briefly visited the town before and liked its fabulous markets, bars and restaurants, these can be reached along the river which is crystal clear and a pleasant 15 minute walk. We were pleased with the house as the pictures don't do it justice. It is a modern house (we have stayed in old, spider infested Gites before), which is tastefully decorated with a French feel and it was more spacious than it looked in the pictures. Room for two cars was handy as two of the party came and hired a car separately. The facilities are excellent with a dishwasher, cooker, washing machine, two large sinks, good TV, wet room type shower, fans, plenty of plug sockets, both sun and shade in the garden and the pool is a good size and very welcoming when it was hot. The moveable canopy over the back also helped shade the house while still keeping it light. We were really well placed to visit the area but there is more to do. We played games in the evening (there are plenty of games in the house and DVDs) which provided great family time. All in all this was a great family holiday and we would definitely go back.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Having visited twice in 2014, first in Midsummer for a week and then in late September for two, we did a lot in the area and used the property to the full.

The house is a very pleasant, modern house in a quiet close, ten minutes’ walk along the river to the town, and with a boulangerie even closer. Super U (and Monsieur Bric, for those of us who like looking at other culture’s ironmongery and power tools!) are also within easy walking distance, though both, of course, have large car parks for filling up with the large “shops” that holidays dictate. The town itself has a good range of shops, a brilliant Sunday market, and, of course, antiques coming out of its ears. L’Isle-sur-la-Sourgue is also well stocked with restaurants, cafes and bars, all within easy walking distance, so no worries about breathalysers. At midsummer itself, there is a great festival with lots of music in the town’s squares as the evening draws on, and people everywhere.

The house was cool in the June heat, with its tiled floors, and comfortable as the autumn arrived. We used the pool during both visits and welcomed its cooling effect in the sunshine and the briskness of exercise later in the year! The beds are comfortable and the house is well furnished with everything we needed. The garden is pleasant to sit in, and there is plenty of room for both the sun-lovers and those who need the shade. Eating out of doors was the norm.

Although you can easily get to the Town by train We flew to Marseilles and hired a car (last year, Europcar seemed to have the longest queues, but that may just have been when we went), which meant that we could explore the area – and we will be going back to do more. It is just over an hour from the airport, an easy drive. We went riding in the Carmargue, and in the Alpilles, shopping in Avignon and Salon de Provence, birdwatching near Merindol, exploring and eating in Arles and Apt, round the hairpin bends on Mont Ventoux, marvelling at the Roman ruins in Vaison-les Romaines, and to numerous other places, near and far. This property is well situated to get a real feel for this area of France, so we would recommend getting the best maps from IGN. We will be using ours when we return in June 2015 to explore from here again!

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks last summer in this house. My 3 teenagers spent their time in the swimming pool and appreciated to be 15 minutes by feet from the center of the town.

The house is really well decorated and the kitchen is well equipped. The garage is really convenient and the parking place in front of the house too.

We enjoyed visiting the neighborhood and discovered many lovely villages.

We hope to come back again this summer
