The charms of L'isle sur la sorgue

L'isle sur la sorgue
As a follow-up to our stay at the beautiful hotel Le Phébus (check the article here), we continued our journey towards L'Isle sur la Sorgue. A picturesque village, located in the heart of the Vaucluse 25 km from Avignon. This charming place is also called "the Venice of Provence" and the reason why became clear to us real soon ...

This old fishing village spans from the small, cute streets and hidden gems to discover :-)
Around the banks of the clear, babbling Sorgue we were immersed in the magic world of the brocanterie ...

We visited the weekly antique market on Sunday but there did not stop our treasure hunt. Because in every alley and behind each corner we discovered the most beautiful and most original antique shops, often accompanied by super cozy bars and bistros.

We stayed in a magnificent chambre d'hotes La Prévoté. When we entered we were immediately surprised by the river that just ran under the hotel's restaurant. Very beautiful and impressive to see. A river in your hotel ... Why not, right? :-)

All five rooms were decorated in their own theme, and we were allowed to spend the night in the beautiful lavender room.

After unpacking our luggage we had to stop our "girls talk" for a moment, because we were expected downstairs at the restaurant for a huge culinary spoil... asparagus cheesecake. Abnormally tasty and extremely delicious! Quite a cook they have there :-)

After this high-quality meal we paid a visit to the local artisan ice cream shop, cause the best time for ice cream is...always!
