"Kick back and relax in Provence!"
Take a day (or more) to get to know L'Isle sur la Sorgue
Hunt for a bargain at the antique dealers, explore typical Provence markets on Thursday and Sunday mornings, and browse the shops and galleries in our delightful little town. Feel free to stop off at Maison sur la Sorgue between shops; we will take care of deliveries for your purchases on request.
Make your way through the winding little roads to Notre Dame des Anges collegiate church, the beautiful river which brings a breath of fresh air to our town, and the wheels still turning in the water, remnants of the town's industrial past.
Take a seat at a café terrace, by the river or in the shade of the great plane trees (at the Café de France by the church, for example, where photographer Willy Ronis was a regular).
All of this and more awaits during your stay at the Maison sur la Sorgue boutique hotel.
We provide maps of the city and can recommend our favourite spots for all your shopping trips.
A day in the Luberon…
Start with Ménerbes and Lacoste, villages in the North Luberon, and discover a picture-postcard landscape, before following the winding roads to Bonnieux or even further, to Saignon dominant Apt. Along this road, stop off at the cellars for a taste of Luberon wines. After a gourmet break (with or without a picnic) head back down to Apt to take in its ochre façades and the Roussillon region with its magnificent colours, which you can explore at your leisure on a walk through the Colorado Provençal. Still making your way through the magnificent rocky landscapes and dells, you will arrive at Gordes, leaving Saint Saturnin and Joucas behind.
