Where to Go, What to Do

The town of l'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is known as the antiques capital of France. It hosts a few hundred antique and second hand shops, hosts a weekly antique market, and also features a major antique fair twice a year. The weekly Sunday morning market is one of the best in Provence.

But there's lots more to this lively town, which has a great variety of restaurants, cafés, and other shops to explore. If you enjoy art, don't miss the Camprendon Centre d'Art, which presents exhibitions by major artists, and the many other galleries around the town.

Enjoy a visit to the spot known as "Le Partage des Eaux", where the river splits: it's a good place to fish, or just to sit by the river and enjoy sun, nature, and the local lifestyle.

l'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue means "Island on the Sorgue", as the river Sorgue splits into two and surrounds the town on all sides. The town has several working water wheels that still turn after hundreds of years. Its winding narrow streets and flowing canals give the town a unique charm.

The local tourist office is based in an old granary building, and can supply all the maps and guide information you could need.

l'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is well located to explore many of the great towns and cities of the Provence region on a day trip. The city of Avignon is a short drive. This town's rich history includes a medieval period when it was the home of the papacy, and its great Papal Palace is a very impressive Gothic building.

The ancient town of Orange, founded by the Romans when they controlled France, features many Roman buildings including the theatre, which is still sometimes used. The town of Arles has a great artistic heritage and is where Vincent Van Gogh spent some time and painted some of his famous works, including Starry Night over the Rhône.

Just beyond Arles is the great salt marsh of the Camargue, where the river Rhône meets the Mediterranean sea. This large natural park is home to wild horses and flamingos. For another great day trip, head to the city of Marseille on the coast for some of France's best sea food.
