Antiquing in L'Isle sur Sorgue

The second destination for French antique dealers after Saint-Ouen, L’Isle is a sure bet for vintage addicts. It’s also a city worth discovering, with its canals and charming little alleyways. Let’s visit !
By Caroline Taret

L’Isle-sur-Sorgue is a city that will most certainly cast a spell on you. Located at the gates of the Luberon region, this city of 22,000 inhabitants and strewn with canals flaunting 14 waterwheels is one of a kind. The sound of water is omnipresent in this pretty city, as is traditional Provencal heritage. A sublime Roman collegiate church, Notre-Dame des Anges, encloses a magnificent organ dating from the 17th century.

This church is located on the city’s central square where a market offering local produce and typical Provençal goods takes place every Thursday and Sunday morning. But what really sets the city apart since the sixties are the antique dealers and traders that have become an institution in France but also in Europe. It’s a city that lovers of beautiful things wouldn’t miss for the world.

This spring famous as Europe’s most important by flow should be visited in the fall, the period when the water gushes in a spectacular way.

Pernes Les Fontaines

This city of Vaucluse should not be missed for its fountains: get lost in its alleyways in search of these marvelous springs.
