About the property

Apartment For 2 - 4 People : Living Room, Equipped Kitchen, Bedroom

L'appartement de Valérie : Charming and typical apartment in the historical area, in a very quiet street, next to Church, restaurants, river, antiquies, shops.

Located on the second and last floor of an historical and large building.

Fully equipped and very nicely decorated: including one large living room (dining room, couch for 2 people, wifi, HD screen, french and english boots...), an equipped kitchen, 1 large bedroom, bathroom ensuite, 1 independant toilet.

A perfectly located place in the heart of L'Isle on Sorgue. You will like its Provençal charm and nice decoration. The place is fully furnished and equipped like a cosy home. Linen, towels and wifi included.

L'Isle en Venaissin: The town of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue used to be called “L’Isle en Venaissin” was originally a city of fishermen on land salvaged from the river. Called “Insula” in the Middle Ages, the city was a true island amidst marshlands which were slowly drained by the construction of the canals. Many canals were dug, both through and around the town, giving rise to the affectionate name of « Venice of the Comtat ».

Waterwheels: Since time immemorial, the steady, abundant waters of the Sorgue river have powered crafts and industry. Sturdy waterwheels led to the establishment of flour mills as early as the 12th century, then to the creation of workshops which worked with wool and silk. The picturesque water wheels which today remain, imparting a special charm to Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, only barely represent the seventy-two wheels which churned away in the 19th century, and the intense business activity which thrived in the city centre. Silk works gave rise to immense fortunes, and Isle-sur-la-Sorgue was also the wool centre for the entire department of Vaucluse.

Historical center: The historical city centre was once surrounded by ramparts, and continues to exude the charm created by the marks left by each passing era. The “Tour d’Argent”, which stands near the apse of the church, was built in the 13th century by the Counts of Toulouse. Not far from there, sumptuous city mansions with Gothic or Renaissance façades line the narrow city streets, bearing witness to the fact that Isle-sur-la-Sorgue was once the chief city in the Comtat. Notre-Dame-des-Anges collegiate church, rebuilt (except for the chancel) in the mid-17th century, is an outstanding example of Baroque art in southern France. The Brun family of architects has left several remarkable constructions, including the Granary, now home to the Tourism Office and the hospital with its lovely vestibule, chapel, apothecary and beautiful garden and fountain. The Brun family also built many city mansions, including the gracious Hôtel Donadeï de Campredon, now home to the Maison René-Char.

Great location, charming apartment = superb!

  • 5 of 5

Valerie is a charming host with a very nice rental apartment. Location is 10 steps from the main market square and the church. The apartment is well-equipped, clean and comfortable, with many new appliances. Arrangements were easy and efficiently carried out. The description is accurate in all details. Valerie was helpful with respect to parking and local sites. All in all, a superb experience. This apartment is very highly recommended - note it is up 36 stairs, but they are easy to navigate.

Great location, cozy apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week in this apartment and found it very comfortable, nicely decorated, and a great location. We only needed to walk about 25 yards and we found ourselves in one of the most popular markets of Provence! The apartment was very clean, equipped very well with mostly new items, and contained a few extra surprises that made us enjoy our time there even more: an iHome speaker to play music from our iPod and iPhone, a towel warmer, plenty of candles with spares for replenishment, and an actual clothes dryer (we found its more common to simply provide a rack for drying).

Access to the apartment requires climbing two flights of winding tiled stairs. This wasn't an issue for us but could be for others.

Valerie was a joy to work with and as helpful as she could be. Since payment by credit card was not an option, there was a little difficulty on the front end having to wire a deposit to reserve the apartment. If there's an opportunity to change that to allow payment by credit card, that would remove the minor hassle factor involved. Otherwise, we found the apartment and Valerie very agreeable, and would. Recommend to friends or family.
