La Maison Sur La Sorgue

La Maison Sur La Sorgue

L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, Provence, France

This 17th century townhouse with remarkable architecture is located in a historic town with a global village feel, offering a cultural environment in a natural setting made even more beautiful by the river. Now a quaint boutique hotel, you can expect an impeccable service, spacious and comfortable suites, a secret garden with a swimming pool, and an art gallery where artists and designers are showcased alongside items from travels around the world. Whatever you’re interested in, here you can enjoy a range of unique experiences. You can hire bikes, from electric bikes to competition bikes for climbing Mont Ventoux like a Tour de France racer. There are also cookery classes (bouillabaisse and traditional Christmas dinners), private and guided tours, rides in classic cars and Citroën 2CVs, and wine cellar tours. We can also help with bookings for restaurants and shows, and we can provide our top recommendations for the Avignon Festival, the Rencontres d’Arles, the Chorégies d’Orange and the Aix-en-Provence Festival, as well as for museums (such as Mucem in Marseille, and the Château la Coste and Hotel de Chaumont in Aix-en-Provence).
