Our guide to places, towns and villages to absolutely visit during your stay in Provence.
The city center
Crisscrossed and surrounded by numerous branches of the Sorgue, the center of the Isle sur la Sorgue finds its anchorage at the level of the church square, place of the Provençal market on Thursday and Sunday morning. The church or rather "La Collegiale Notre-Dame-des-Anges" has been classified as a historical monument since April 4, 1911. You can feel the soothing atmosphere of the place around, why not, a small glass to drink on the terrace of the "cafe de France".
The city center is rich in all kinds of shops allowing you to do your daily shopping or to find a souvenir gift.
Restaurants, cafes and other ice cream parlors are well represented in the center. You will find all the cuisines of the world there.
At the bend of the Robert VASSE esplanade, time stands still ...
The Sorgue is close at hand (or on foot!) And will help you cool off during hot days.
It is also on this occasion that you can visit the many galleries and second-hand shops that abound in this corner of the city.
To see near Isle sur la Sorgue
The resurgence of Fontaine de Vaucluse which gives life to our river, the Sorgue.
The village of Fontaine de Vaucluse formerly called Vaucluse (closed valley) is a haven of peace and undoubtedly the ideal place to taste a beautiful local trout.
Canoe trips down the sorgue are organized all summer from Fontaine de Vaucluse to arrive at Isle sur la Sorgue,
close to the place called "the sharing of waters". A very good memory in perspective, which is also very refreshing !
Not far from there, you can discover the village of Saumane de Vaucluse, immersed in the middle of the scrubland and white trails.
You can see bories (peasant huts) or other clapas (wall) made with local dry stones.
