Isle sur la Sorgue

This medieval town of Isle sur la Sorgue with its typically narrow streets is built on the islands of five branches of the Sorgue river, 7 km downstream from its source at Fontaine-de-Vaucluse which is the source of the Sorgue river. As this good sized town is built on a river, it has many waterways, waterwheels and bridges. For this reason it is often known as the Venice of France. In August they have markets from boats in the water, replicating those of years gone by.

The 12th century impressive church in the middle of Isle sur la Sorgue is surrounded by cafés (including the famous Cafe de France across the square under the plane trees) and shops radiating out in streets from this centre. The town is well known for its antique shops and markets which are said to be the second biggest outside of Paris. Sunday markets fill every street of centre ville and must be close to the best markets in France - see photos of these markets. There are also plenty of good restaurants including one with a Michelin star.
Isle sur la Sorgue is only 20 minutes by car, bus or train from Avignon. With its very central position in the Vaucluse region of Provence, it provides a great base to explore the region.
