Presentation

In the heart of the Vaucluse, Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, is an old fishing village nicknamed the "Venice Comtadine". It is, with its microclimate, one of the most attractive towns in Provence.
Birthplace of the poet René Char, Isle-sur-La-Sorgue is a small paradise of greenery crossed by many arms of the Sorgue river on which old paddle wheels still turn. In its old centre, narrow streets and canals intertwine. Stairs go down to the wash houses and quays border the river.
A former fishing village (until the 19th century), L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue has forged a strong image today among lovers of art and antiques. More than 300 permanent antique and second-hand dealers are open all year round (Saturday/Sunday/Monday and sometimes more), making the town one of the most important European places of antiquity. The big fairs of Easter and August 15 bring together five hundred exhibitors and attract thousands of antique dealers from France and abroad.
To be seen: Antique villages, the baroque collegiate church of Notre-Dame-des-Anges; the 17th century Hôtel Dieu with its vestibule, chapel, pharmacy and garden decorated with a fountain; the hotel Donadeï de Campredon Centre d'Art which most often houses exhibitions related to Photography and Contemporary Art, the site of the watershed, the museum of toys and antique dolls, the large Provencal market on Sunday mornings, the floating market on the first Sunday in August, fishing of yesteryear and nautical fairy tales in July...
