On the second floor one bedroom (double bed), a very nice shower room with WC and a dressing. L'Isle en Venaissin: The town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue used to be called “L'Isle en Venaissin” was originally a city of fishermen on land salvaged from the river. Called “Insula” in the Middle Ages, the city was a true island amidst marshlands which were slowly drained by the construction of the canals. Many canals were dug, both through and around the town, giving rise to the affectionate name of « Venice of the Comtat ». Waterwheels: Since time immemorial, the steady, abundant waters of the Sorgue river have powered crafts and industry. Sturdy waterwheels led to the establishment of flour mills as early as the 12th century, then to the creation of workshops which worked with wool and silk. The picturesque water wheels which today remain, imparting a special charm to Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, only barely represent the seventy-two wheels which churned away in the 19th century, and the intense business activity which thrived in the city centre. Silk works gave rise to immense fortunes, and Isle-sur-la-Sorgue was also the wool centre for the entire department of Vaucluse. Historical center: The historical city centre was once surrounded by ramparts, and continues to exude the charm created by the marks left by each passing era. The “Tour d'Argent”, which stands near the apse of the church, was built in the 13th century by the Counts of Toulouse. Not far from there, sumptuous city mansions with Gothic or Renaissance façades line the narrow city streets, bearing witness to the fact that Isle-sur-la-Sorgue was once the chief city in the Comtat. Notre-Dame-des-Anges collegiate church, rebuilt (except for the chancel) in the mid-17th century, is an outstanding example of Baroque art in southern France. The Brun family of architects has left several remarkable constructions, including the Granary, now home to the Tourism Office and the hospital with its lovely vestibule, chapel, apothecary and beautiful garden and fountain. The Brun family also built many city mansions, including the gracious Hôtel Donadeï de Campredon, now home to the Maison René-Char.More

About 50 m from the canal that runs through the middle of town, and about 50-100m to bars cafes restaurants boulangerie, everything you want for a great stay. Will be my first choice when I return

Nous avons passé un séjour merveilleux dans cette maison de ville typiquement provençale .Aménagée avec beaucoup de goût on s'y sent comme dans un cocon douillet. Le descriptif proposé correspond réellement à la réalité et la ville de l'Isle sur la Sorgue est très animée par ses marchés et les dizaines d'antiquaires qui s'y trouvent. De plus, l'Isle sur la Sorgue est très bien située permettant ainsi de belles balades à pieds, vélo ou voiture. A recommander

It's been over a year now since we stayed for 1 month at La Maison de L'Isle but I'm delighted to be able to recommend this property to anyone heading for the beautiful town of Isle sur La Sorgue. The town is a MUST VISIT for anyone venturing to Provence, with it's ancient buildings and waterwheels. There are 2 market days per week where fabulous food of all kinds is sold. The house is over a hundred years old but has been renovated beautifully and with great taste.The owner, Valerie, has also maintained it's historical integrity. (It has 2 storeys PLUS ground floor) The location is great - literally 50 metres and just around the corner from the hustle and bustle of the village. But it is also very quiet - the only sounds we would hear were the distant chiming of the church bells. Valerie was a delight to deal with, helpful in every way. She also speaks very good English so we were able to converse when our limited French fell in a heap. So anyone feeling a little nervous about communication needn't worry. I'm hoping to return to France in 2014 and will definitely be returning to Isle sur La Sorgue and definitely to La Maison de L'Isle
