About the property

Spacious 2 bedroom town centre apartment. Refurbished 2015/16

Our charming spacious two bedroomed apartment - Le Petit Nid - "the little nest", is situated on the first floor of a traditional building looking down into Rue Carnot in the gorgeous and colourful town of L'Isle sur la Sorgue. The apartments central situation means you can sit back and relax with your fresh croissant or glass of local wine and enjoy watching the life of the village with people strolling along the streets below. With the Sunday market you can look out onto an authentic Provencal scene! The apartment is flooded with early morning sunlight and is a really great location to explore the excellent restaurants and bars of the town which we can happily recommend.

The location is also perfect to explore the antique shops, boutiques and art galleries and is only minutes away from Isabella's Ice Cream café which famously makes the best ice cream in the region!

We completely refurbished Le Petit Nid in spring 2015 and have endeavoured to make the apartment welcoming and comfortable, whilst keeping modern needs and requirements in mind. It is furnished with quality furniture and uses excellent linen from the UK.

Bedroom 1 has twin beds which can be combined to provide a king size bed so you can choose how you want the beds set up; bedroom 2 has a double bed. Both bedrooms also have ample wardrobes with drawers and chairs.

Store room - An additional room is available for you to use to store your travel cases etc.

The living area is laid out in typical French style with open plan sitting and eating areas and an ‘American cuisine’. The sitting area has a sofa and two armchairs, with beautiful soft furnishings while the dining area has a good-sized table and four comfortable chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, electric hob, electric fan oven, kettle, toaster, coffee machine and all utensils.

The modern bathroom has a WC, washbasin, a walk-in shower, heated towel rail and a hair dryer. All linens and towels are provided.

The apartment has English-speaking TV, reversible air conditioning (which cools and heats) and WiFi internet. Town centre parking is available near to the apartment.

Newly renovated in 2015/16, with old world charm and practical modern living in mind, Le Petit Nid is an ideal base for exploring the lovely town of L’Isle sur la Sorgue and this idyllic area of Provence.

For your arrival at the apartment, we will provide you with a key code to access the apartment and we have a local contact should you have need whilst you are staying at the apartment.

About Trevor Watson & Jane Kendrick

We live in North Yorkshire, England and fell in love with L'isle when we visited in 2014 - beware it has that effect upon you!! My wife is the stylist and is the creative influence in the design of the flat.

Trevor Watson & Jane Kendrick purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Trevor Watson & Jane Kendrick chose L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue

We just love L'isle - every time we return we find something new. The restaurants are great, the markets amazing and we also enjoy riding bikes on the well marked cycle tracks which are very quiet and safe. The position of the town is also brilliant as a base for touring if you want to explore further.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of this property is just perfect - right in the centre and literally next door from the top restaurant on trip adviser - Mistral. The apartment gets early morning light through the living room windows and, having double glazed windows and reversible air conditioning, is very comfortable throughout the year. We have an 3rd additional room which we decided not to convert into a bedroom as we wanted guest to enjoy the space - the room is ideal for cases, laundry etc and guests have found it very useful. Please read our guest reviews!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lovely apartment - the extra room was useful for drying and for storage of cases

The unit was well equipped & in a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We had no contact with our host except for email but we were able to gather heaps of information from the tourist office near by and loved the area.

Unfortunately the Apartement above was being renovated & athough the workers were considerate enough not to start very early left a lot of mess & dust in the stairwell which also flowed into our unit.

We were lucky enough to find a park near by after negotiating the very narrow streets but if you have an ailment it would be worth considering a easier accessed apartment

We enjoyed our stay

Thank you

Beyond Words

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is everything you can imagine a stay in Provence to be. L'isle-sur-la-sorgue is perfection. The apartment is in an amazing location, clean, comfortable, and decently sized. We stayed for 3 nights and would have stayed longer if it was possible. Trevor is helpful and responsive: We were supposed to be there 4 nights but at the last minute we lost the first night due to the train strikes in France and a cancelled train. Trevor offered to let us add the missed night to the end of the trip. Even though we couldn't take advantage of the offer that tells you the kind of owner you're dealing with: just wonderful. The only thing I'd warn is stay FAR AWAY from the parking near the apartment on Thursday and Sunday--they WILL tow your car (even if you think you're in a safe spot) and it WILL take you many stressful hours to get it back :( But that was not the apartment's fault! Parking at the train station is convenient and easy. There is a grocery right nearby. The market begins right outside the apartment on Thur & Sun. It can be a touch noisy in the mornings if you leave the windows open, but when they're closed it's totally fine (and the apartment has a/c) The folder provided lists loads of helpful information about the apartment and the area. We day tripped all over the area (Gordes, Fontaine-de-vaucluse, even as far as Cassis and Moustiers St. Marie) but were always happy to come back to "our" flat. To sum up: you can not to wrong staying here. This trip will stay in our memories forever (and for better reasons than the stress of tracking down our towed vehicle haha) I hesitate to give it such a glowing recommendation, only because I would rather keep it a secret all to myself ;)

The only possible criticism I could give would be that the mattresses are a touch firm, but really that's personal preference.

Excellent location and comfortable good sized rooms.

  • 4 of 5

This property is very well situated and close to the station. We found the beds to be very comfortable and the bathroom is excellent. We did however find the washing machine tricky to understand - the spin cycle didn't always work. This is probably down to the operator rather than the machine!

The kitchen is very good but we would have appreciated a microwave. The dining and sitting area is good.

All in all an ideal property although a wee bit noisy especially in early morning when the rubbish is collected and the streets are being cleaned.

We were more than happy with the rental. It is well maintained and clean and lives up to its description.

One thing that could be emphasised is the convenience of getting to l'isle sur la Sorgue from Avignon TGV or central station.Rather than taking a taxi the rail option is a good one as the property is so convenient from the station. Perhaps the owners could supply a train timetable when giving the final details to guests.

We will certainly be recommending this property to others.

Excellent central location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was in an excellent location - a couple of minutes walk from the central square. We really felt we were in the heart of the town one which we would recommend for its character and ambience. The apartment had all you need for a comfortable stay - the air conditioning was welcome at times as the temperature was mid 30's most of the time. L'isle sur la Sorgue was a town full of character and I enjoyed goes to the bakers each morning for fresh bread and croissants. The twice weekly market was full of fresh produce and a lovely atmosphere.

Comfortable, Convenient, Clean

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our too short stay at le Petit Nid. L'Isle Sur La Sorgue is a charming town: many good restaurants, lovely ambiance with the river running through the town, stupendous Sunday market, convenient base for regional exploration of the Luberon. Its only drawback is its obvious popularity with many vacationers making it a bit too crowded at times. The apartment was well equipped, clean and very conveniently located to restaurants, stores, and other amenities, although access by car is tricky. The air conditioning was a feature we highly appreciated due to the hot weather we experienced. The only minor quibbles are the absence of a microwave oven and the tiny bedside tables in the second bedroom that were inadequate to accommodate our needs which included use of a CPAP device.

Owner's Response: Peter Thank you for your feedback which we will consider fully. No other guest has suggested a microwave or found the size of the table inadequate but we will certainly look at your suggestions. The town does get very busy during markets - we tend to use the central location of the apartment as a way to get out early and miss the very busy period. I am pleased you did find the apartment comfortable convenient and clean. Thank you again. Trevor
