Your guide to l'isle sur la sorgue

Where to stay

Located in the heart of Provence, L'Isle sur la Sorgue is known to be the antiquing capital of the country. Marked by waterwheels and a river that runs through it, this town is full of charm and nostalgia. 


I stopped by on my way from Marseille to Paris for a night, and couldn't have had a better experience. I stayed at Le Grand Hôtel Henri, and was absolutely blown away by the service, the rooms, and the attention to detail.

Food and shopping

Like any Provençal town, there is an abundance of bakeries, linen shops, and soap shops. Of course I had to go in every single one, and found some favorites, like La Maison Jouvaud, which has the most exquisite pastries and chocolates shaped like cicadas. Needless to say, I bought the entire store.
