L’Isle sur la Sorgue

29km / 39min

The small town of Isle sur la Sorgue lies between Avignon and Fontaine de Vaucluse in the Luberon valley.

Covered in trees and plants, the river Sorgue runs through its center, and its network of canals has seen it nicknamed ‘the Venice of the Comtat Venaissin’. Crossed by narrow bridges and moss-covered mill wheels, the canals surround and run right through the town, which was built on pilotis over the course of the 12th century.

Isle sur la Sorgue is known as one of the best sources of antiques and art in Provence. Famous for its four-hundred antique dealers, it plays host to a famous bric-a-brac market every Sunday throughout the year.
