    Located in the heart of L'Isle Sur la in a quiet street by the river just a 2 minute walk to the town's 30+ restaurants, cafe's & shops. Isle sur la Sorgue is famous for its graceful waterways, and antique markets, which give this chic town its character and atmosphere. The 'isle' was created when the River Sorgue was split into canals ploughed by water wheels powering its paper and silk mills in the 18th century. On a Sunday morning, the quays, main streets and narrow side streets are swamped with antique and brocante stalls, as well as the heady olfactory sensations of traditional Provencal ware, changing as you move through the market. The town is a good size and has a healthy selection of restaurants, cafés and shops, but is small enough that you can quickly become intimate with it. ...moreless

Car: Not Necessary

Located in the heart of the Vaucluse, surrounded by the Luberon/Alpilles yet only 20 kilometres from Avignon, 45mins from Aix-en-Provence, and 1h from Marseille. From here you can enjoy every delight both culturally and rurally that Provence has to offer including hilltop villages, dramatic coastlines, bustling cities, tranquil lavender fields and vineyards.

In July the nearby (20min) Avignon turns into one big theater festival with hundreds of plays to watch

Marseille with it's lovely old harbour is just one hour away and is famous for it's Boullabaisse (fish soup).

15 minutes away you will find one of the great mysteries of nature, Fountaine de Vaucluse. For most of the year all you can see is a deep blue pool of water at the bottom of towering cliffs. But during spring or very heavy rainfall it lives up to its name, with water gushing out at 200m3 (52,000 gallons) every second - this is one of the largest springs in the world.

The Grottes de Thouzon Caves, 1.5 km northwest of Thor, were discovered in 1904, and are in excellent condition. A feature of the caves are beautiful golden fistulous stalactites. A nice break when the temperature climbs above 35C in the summer.

In the 50s, Jacques Yves Cousteau came with a submersible to explore the depths but did not find the bottom. Since then a probe has made it to a sandy bed at a depth of 308 metres (1010 ft) but the spring itself comes from somewhere even deeper. It is said that all the rainwater from the Luberon and other surrounding mountains comes out of this one source, making a catchment area of 1100 square km (425 sq. miles).

Every Sunday: Vide Grenier/Brocante (flee markets) in nearby villages.

Sporting events: Tour de France, Football, Rugby tournaments.

Festivals from June-August with the choice of daily events taking place throughout the region.

Feu d'artifice (fireworks) in Monteux in mid August

Randonee at Mont Ventoux or in the Luberon valley.

A paradise for road and mountain biking.

Windsurfing, waves (1h30) and flat water (1h) when the Mistral blows.

Scuba diving (1h) both nature and wrecks.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My husband and I are from Wales in the UK. We have been travelling to France for years but stumbled across Provence about 12 years ago by chance. We were intrigued by the place and 5 years ago were married in Gordes. Our wedding planner brought us to L'Isle sur la Sorgue to visit the florist and we fell in love with it, we are both antique lovers as in the UK we live in a house which was built in 15th century and is full of antiques. It was also so vibrant and beautiful with all of the scenery and waterways. This year we bought our first house which we have completely renovated 'Maison Bijoux'.

Why the Owner Chose L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, France:
We loved this property because it had the appearance of being small but was actually quite spacious inside. We bought the house off a French artist who obviously loved the house because of it's light on the upper floors and the wonderful roof terrace. It was essential for us to have an outside space. It was also essential for us to be in close proximity of the main town so we could walk to bars and restaurants and in the evening stumble home!!

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The little touches that made us fall in love included the peace and tranquility looking out over the roof terrace, the quaint kitchen when the light floods as the shutters are opened in the morning.
