About Kimberley Fry
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'.
Kimberley Fry purchased this townhome in 2012
Why Kimberley Fry chose Isle-sur-la-Sorgue
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!!
What makes this townhome unique
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.
