Holiday Villa Rentals in and around L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue
Twenty-five miles east of Avignon, between Carpentras and Cavillion in deepest Provence, is the must-see town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue. Locals call it an island city defined by the canals which transect it, bordered by pretty shops and restaurants overlooking the water, as well as by the narrow streets with small streams running through them. It's a delightful place to stroll around with the soothing sound of running water constantly in the background. Occasionally you come across a moss-covered wheel harking back to earlier times when river power was used to drive the local silk and paper industries. Art galleries abound including the famous Maison René Char museum showing such greats as Miró and Dufy. But foremost, L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is renowned for antiques housing more than 300 shops and dealers with an internationally renowned Antiques Fair held every Easter and August.
