Comfortable and Conveniently located!
Tucked away off a bustling thoroughfare in this wonderful town of L'Isle sur la Sorgue, this 3 level home was very comfortable for just the two of us. We enjoyed our stay in this "old France" style home, though you did need to watch your head going up the stairs! Everything was clean, well equipped, and as listed in the description.
Valerie was a joy to work with. The process for reserving the property could be improved if credit cards were an option; the wiring process was certainly doable, just a bit less convenient.
All in all, great experience. We would recommend this property to friends or family if ever traveling to the area.
Thank you for your comment. Credit card payments are just now possible on HomeAway website.
See you maybe another time in L'Isle sur la Sorgue. Best regards. Valerie METOÏS.
Great house in an unbeatable location
The house was exactly as described on the website - right in the heart of the old town. Valerie the owner was extremely helpful and friendly. The house was immaculately presented & clean; had free wi-fi, a nice outdoor terrace, and plenty of room on each of the floors. Close proximity to the old town's cafes, bars, restaurants, waterwheels and secure parking nearby. Thanks for a great holiday Valerie.
SAFE, SECURE, CLEAN and IDEALLY LOCATED
My husband, one year old daughter and I were sad to leave behind the authentic charm of this quaint little village, made all the more welcoming by the warmth and accommodating hospitality of Valerie and her gorgeous, ideally located house.
I laughed when I read the comment by the American about the 'unsafe alley' and 'mean looking dog'! Nothing could be farther than the truth! I felt very safe and was happy to stroll my baby's pram out late and that dog is actually very friendly and my daughter would pat it when we would come home from our evening walk. As a matter if fact that dog keeps a watch on the street!
There was fresh orange juice, and lovely home made jams int the fridge and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils. I would love to come back!!
what a lovely house in a lovely place
For our last holidays, coming back to Provence, we choosed l'Isle sur la Sorgue and this lovely little house in the center. The patio is a so romantic place...
What a nice place. We loved to walk in the town, discovering markets, restaurants and shops, and all the villages in Luberon like Gordes, Ménerbes and Lacoste.
Thank you Miss METOÏS. We hope to come back !
Thank you for your comment.
See you ! Valerie METOÏS.
Not Save and Secure
The property is advertised as "down a quiet cul de sac street" It is actually located down a filthy alley lined with trash bins and loose trash and a mean looking chained dog which is behind several restaurants. The smell and noise from the restaurants is bad. The only windows ventilating the property open to the alley allowing the smells and noise of the restaurants the permeate the property.
My wife and I felt that this was not a safe and secure environment where we wished to spend a week of our vacation. We would have been scared to death to come and go after dark.
We would have had to park more than a 1/4 mile from the property to unload our luggage.
We rejected the property and forfeited our deposit as well as paying an additional 150 euros to stop the owner from screaming at us.
I have to answer to these misleading and unfair comments (maybe motivated by the disappointment not to have been able to cancel the renting on arrival ?...), especially since the only explanation that I have been given was the fact that is was a 2 level house with stairs to climb!…
To be kind, I proposed to reduce the balance by half, even if the French law obliges to pay the total amount.
L’Isle sur la Sorgue is a small town typic of Provence, worldwide well-knowned and appreciated for it’s unique charm: small streets, old houses, markets and antiques.
Under no circumstances it can be described as a “filthy”, noisy and unsecure place, full of mean dogs. There is no chance to be “scared to death” !!!
The house has the advantage to be located in the center of the town but in a cul de sac street with no traffic. It has 6 windows facing both the alley and the patio.
No one has ever complained, on the contrary if I consider all the positive comments left in the house’s guest book and the number of people who came back.
Perfectly placed for easy day trips to Gordes, Roussillon, Menerbes, Fontaine de Vaucluse, Avignon, Orange, Arles, the Camargue, the wine of Chateauneuf du Pape, Mont. Ventoux.
