|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
This charming apartment will appeal to those who want to enjoy a holiday in a city-village with history and character, staying in a delightful apartment. It has been renovated in September 2012 and decorated with style and providing all the modern conveniences. The apartment is on the first floor of a respectfully modernized old building dating back several centuries. There is a bedroom with en suite bathroom and living-room/dining/kitchen. The fully equipped kitchen retains the charm of the apartment and ensures you are able to enjoy preparing the wonderful fresh local produce available at the twice-weekly markets. You will immediately feel at home in this apartment which doesn't get too hot in summer and is cosy in winter.
In a small street off one of the squares in the old town, you are a minute or two from everything the town has to offer - 300 famous antiques, over 60 restaurants and cafés, shops, waterways and waterwheels, beautiful old church and old town architecture.
Claire was wonderful to work with. She met us on arrival and provided us with information on the unit and town. There was a lovely bottle of wine, tapanade and toasts waiting for us. The apartment was spotless, well appointed and perfect for a couple. We were a 2 minute walk to a bustling square and shops. The unit faces a school yard that is busy and noisy during school hours. Personally we enjoyed the sounds of the children playing. The town is central and it's an easy drive to surrounding hill towns. We would definitely recommend this accommodation!
This was a perfect experience. Claire welcomed us and showed us all the features of her sweet apartment, which was smartly furnished with modern appliances. Lots of towels, coffee, cooking utensils, and a welcome bottle of wine. She even has a welcome book of advice and resources. The apartment was perfect for us as a couple. Some others have commented about the school across the street. We actually enjoyed hearing the young children playing in the school yard as they gathered in the morning. I would give this six stars if I could.
Oh yes, the town is an ideal place to wander the streets of the old parts or head out to the nearby hill towns.
This apartment lacked for nothing. Claire and Bernard were wonderful hosts from the wine and tapenade welcome gift to setting our GPS upon our departure. We loved watching the school children during the day and the absolute quiet of the neighborhood at night. You could walk anywhere in Isle sur la Surge from the apartment, and we did, as well as take day trips into the wonderful countryside. The kitchen was very well equipped as we brought food in from the markets as well as enjoyed the wonderful restaurants. We recommend this apartment to everyone.
We stayed a week at Claire's wonderful apartment in the heart of L'Isle Sur La Sorgue. Claire is a great host and is very attentive to any thing you need. The decor is well done and the kitchen is well stocked. I highly recommend.
Le Petit Cezanne was an absolutely perfect place to stay for our recent honeymoon. The friendly owners provide everything necessary to create a home away from home, right down to a welcome gift of tapenade and wine upon arrival. It was extremely comfortable for the two of us and plenty roomy for a week's stay. The apartment was ideally located in Isle Sur La Sorgue--just a stroll from restaurants, shops, parks and the scenic river. We loved the big windows and fresh air and sunshine throughout the apartment. We also appreciated Claire's recommendations on restaurants to try and sights to see.
We really enjoyed using the apartment as a home base for adventures in the area--Roussillon, Gordes, Pont du Gard, Chateauneuf-de-Pape and Mount Ventoux and much more are easily accessible from Isle Sur La Sorgue. Plus, the village provides everything you need in terms of shopping and entertainment while still maintaining Provencal charm, especially during the market days. We rented a car and had no problem finding parking within a close vicinity of the apartment.
Can't wait to return!
Claire and her husband were wonderful hosts for our two week visit!! (We had been to Sorgue in the past and enjoyed the market. ) Beautiful Villeroy Boch china, fully (really) equipped kitchen, washer with drying rack. Wonderful linens, replaced after one week. TV and wifi excellent reception, no problems, could use a few more English speaking movie or major channel stations. (beside the 5 world news stations)
Two minute walk to parking, three minute walk to Tourism Office, Church, street market, 5 minute walk to center of town and nice grocery store ( U tile),
We used our location as a base to visit many other locations, Mt Ventu, Rousillon, and many others, all within a 1 hour drive.
Don't miss the 'Mistral' restaurant on rue carnot, personal service with a smile........Class restaurant......Dinner twice while we were visiting.
Elementary school across from apartment, our visit, in September, weather cool. No problem with noise-double pane windows. If visiting during HOT months, closing the windows so not to hear children on playground could be a consideration.
**Only problem, a municipal one, trash area in front of school, could present a 'fly' problem.
We thank Claire and her husband for a wonderful visit.
L'isle Sur La Sorgue is famous for it's antique shops and markets and for it's delightful waterways and mossy waterwheels. The old town is charming with little shaded streets and open squares to explore. It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday for a few days, a week or as long as you can spare.
The town is medium size which ensures it is lively all year round; the old town being small enough though that you can become quite familiar with it and walk to everything you need. This home is away from the hustle and bustle but just around the corner!
L'Isle sur la Sorgue is known as having the largest number of antique and brocante dealers outside of Paris and you can spend many hours browsing their wares and eating in the restaurants you will find amongst them.
It has a selection of galleries showing very high quality artworks, many little stores to browse and too many good cafes, restaurants, wine bars and ice cream shops to sample in one holiday!
The Thursday and Sunday produce markets offer a delightful selection of everything fresh - the hardest part is not buying so much that you don't need to eat out.
