Property description

In the center of the historic town of L' Isle Sur la Sorgue. Famous for its waterways, antique shops and markets, L' Isle Sur la Sorgue is also full of delightful cafes, restaurants, galleries with winding streets and hidden historic buildings.

“L' Ambiance” is the perfect place to enjoy the bounties of this fabulous Provencal town and, for a short time, pretend you really live here! After spending many vacations in L’ Isle Sur la Sorgue rental homes our fantasy of living here came true when we purchased L' Ambiance. It is now our home for part of the year and has been renovated, furnished and supplied with our needs and desires in mind. We hope that those are also your desires and that L'Ambiance can be your home away from home.

In the center of town with the buzz of the village all around, L'Ambiance was recently completely renovated with a gourmet kitchen, shower room, a quiet and relaxing terrace with bbq and beautiful decoration by a professional designer. The decoration is a combination of new “practical” furniture and interesting old local finds. There are two plush leather chairs where you can enjoy your coffee or glass of wine and watch the life of the town pass before you. There is a separate lounge where you can watch TV in either French or English, watch a DVD, or just relax and read a book. Selection of DVDs and books are provided. Wi-Fi is available throughout the apartment.

L' Isle Sur la Sorgue is renowned for its Sunday market which includes incredible produce, cheese and other food, antiques and brocante. Walk out the front door and the market is there for you to enjoy. There is also a Thursday farmers market in town and in Velleron, just a few kilometers away, there is a farmers market six evenings a week! With fabulous butchers, bakeries and wine shops just a short walk from the apartment you can make incredible meals in the gourmet kitchen or walk to the amazing restaurants and cafes nearby. Since the apartment is on the second floor, the premier etage in French, you can easily carry your bounty home from the markets!

If you love to cook this is the kitchen for you! The stainless steel appliances are top of the line featuring a five burner gas cook top, electric convection oven, and dishwasher. The white lacquered lower cabinets are topped with black granite providing ample workspace.

The kitchen opens up to the lounge with a dining table and chairs, two leather club chairs, a marble topped coffee table and a CD music system with a library of CDs. The club chairs face the large window with a retractable awning that looks down at shops with beautiful Provencal goods and a café. You can enjoy the life of the village from your own private vantage point! The light filled apartment has air conditioning for hot weather and heating for the colder months.

The private terrace is reached from the kitchen through the glassed in porch that has the washing machine and clothes drying rack. The quiet and peaceful terrace has a dining table and chairs, a sun umbrella, gas Weber BBQ and two comfy lounge chairs. There are fresh herbs for you to use for cooking or just enjoy looking at and smelling. The terrace has both sunshine and shade so will take care of all your needs.

There is one bedroom with a queen sized bed or, if you desire, it can be made up as two twin beds. There is a large wardrobe with ample storage space. There is also a TV in this room with French and English stations.

The shower room has a large walk-in shower with sliding glass doors, w.c., hand basin and a heated towel rack. There is a cabinet to store all of your things. A hair dryer is supplied for your convenience.

There is no private parking but there is ample free public parking a short walk away.
