Another lovely visit

  • 5 of 5

Having been a few times, we wanted to say how much we have continued enjoy this house, L’Isle-sur-La Sorgue and the region. For us, the house is perfectly positioned, walking distance to the town but with views from the back to the Vaucluse Plateau, giving it an open and rural feel as well.

The house is well maintained, comfortable and attractively furnished and the tiled floors keep the downstairs cool in hot weather. Because it is used extensively by the owners as a holiday home, it feels warmer than rented property. The garden is just right with choice of sun or shade and the garden furniture improved by the addition this year of sun loungers. It is easy to spend the whole day at home reading, playing games, swimming and just chilling.

We love the town and the ability to walk to the market, shops, bars and restaurants, along the river.

There is so much to do in the area that we have never been short of outings. This time, we went to Marseille and want to go back, the Pont du Gard, which is stunning, the Harmas Jean-Henri Fabre just north east of Orange (a garden designed in the 19th century to encourage insects so the owner could study them). Aix-en-Provence is a must visit town with the refurbished Caumont Centre d’Art, which has a major annual exhibition, this year, of the paintings of the Impressionist Alfred Sisley, but in previous years Canaletto and JMW Turner. Our last outing was to the Camargue, the Reserve Naturel du Vigeurat where you can walk in the marsh mainly on boardwalks.

All in all another fantastic holiday.

Lovely, well-appointed home in beautiful quintessential Provence town

  • 4 of 5

We are a group of 5 adults and were delighted with the situation, facilities and views from this property. It is all as advertised, and there is plenty to do in this pretty island town and environs. Had we visited in high summer we would no doubt have accessed the pool (which is unheated) but it was rather chilly - with the Mistral blowing and bringing some dust into the house (which we could have prevented by better use of the shutters).

The neighbourhood is friendly, safe and very close to a beautiful river walk (by clean, clear waters from the spring in nearby Fontaine). A nearby supermarket is reached along an iconic country road with old farm buildings and cypress trees set against the backdrop of the Luberon limestone mountains (Mont Ventoux being visible at various points). We used the BBQ several times, found the books and videos provided matched our taste and loved the twice weekly markets in this capital of Provence antique centres (with its numerous waterwheels and fascinating industrial history). We'd love to visit again - but might come earlier in the year and request feather-free pillows and bedding - as allergies were troublesome. Thank you so much for a very special holiday at an economic price!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We are happy to supply some more synthetic pillows should we be notified in advance. Heating the pool is a frequent matter of discussion and there will be a grand announcement when (or if) it happens. One problem is that the aesthetics of the garden around the house would be somewhat ruined by a heat exchanger, so until we can decide where to put it we all will continue to enjoy the pleasures of natural heating! The other problem is that there would have to be a rise in the rental cost to cover the energy charges. We are really glad you enjoyed yourselves and would be most welcome if you chose to come again.

Very nice house. Recommended.

  • 4 of 5

The house corresponds with the presentation on HomeAway.

We had a very nice vacation at this place.

The positive aspects :

Nice house, it was clean. Bathroom with nice shower and always hot water.

Calm area. The garden is enclosed and big enough.

Nice place to eat outside and an outdoor salon to enjoy the apero.

A good weber gas barbecue was present ( I have the same at home :-) ) which was a big plus and much cleaner than the typical greasy bbq that you find at most gites.

A second fridge to keep drinks cold, near the outdoor table.

The owner allowed us to choose start and end dates other than Saturday, so we avoided heavy traffic. Thanks for that !

Someone came to the house to welcome us and also at departure. Very friendly.

We did some nice excursions in the area like Roussillon, Fontaine de Vaucluse and the Camargue.

We stayed with a family of 4 so both my daughters could have their own room.

Some potential improvements :

The beds are OK, but not super.

The swimming pool is not heated and not covered. I'd prefer the water to be a bit warmer. A small solar panel could make the pool much more enjoyable.

There are only 4 chairs outside and 4 places in the outdoor salon. This was good enough for us, but could be insufficient for bigger families. The same remark applies on the single bathroom for 3 rooms.

A better quality outdoor sunbed would be a nice plus.

All together a very nice place for a reasonable price.

Recommended !

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Just for clarification there is a lot of moveable furniture and we have entertained 9 around the outdoor table utilising some of the 8 additional chairs in the house. We agree that the red sun loungers could be better, but there are also deck chairs and the 'salon' furniture for outside use. We deliberately have one harder and one softer double bed so that guests can choose which they prefer, as beds are very much a personal thing. We do try and improve things on a regular basis. However most importantly we are glad you enjoyed your stay and found it good value.

A delightful find!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time and the house was perfect. Very well equipped and relaxing and comfortable. The pool was divine and actually bigger than the photographs suggested. The village is gorgeous and the surrounding area offers so much. Thank you to Elayne for being so attentive.

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!
