Firstly, the location is fantastic: The nearest village of L'Isle sur la sorgue is gorgeous with a river running right through it and watermills everywhere covered in ferns. The market is lovely but as others said, get there early to avoid the worst of the rush. Beyond this, there are dozens of places to explore within a short drive and bigger cities like Avignon, Orange and Aix-en-Provence.
The setting for the apartments is also beautiful - the golf course is stunning and there are lots of trees and lakes.
The stagiaire who greeted us was clearly new, but Rosie, the English lady with whom we dealt for most of the trip was very helpful and accommodating. The apartment itself was basic - not perfectly clean and a might tired around the edges, but "it did the job". It was frustrating to have to supply everything down to salt and pepper and cleaning products - not worth buying washing products for just a week, but we had to do it. Talking of which, the laundry at EUR5 a pop was also pretty expensive. We were on a ground floor which meant we had more space for our son to run around. There is no air conditioning, so I am not sure how we would have felt having all the windows open at night if it had been really hot.
The pool is nice, but exposed - a few umbrellas wouldn't go amiss. The water was cold and got colder due to a mistral. There was little else for our three year old to do, but we kept ourselves entertained. A small playground would be a welcome addition.
The age groups were pretty varied - but we were just before the Summer break.
All in all, a good break but do not go for this if you are looking for five star luxury.
