L'Isle sur la Sorgue : the Venice of the Comtat, between Avignon and Luberon
Isle sur la Sorgue is a charming Provencal town 25km southeast of Avignon. The numerous canals and branches of the Sorgue have given the town the nickname of the Venice of the Comtat.
L'Isle sur la Sorgue is the chosen home of many antique and second-hand goods dealers. Each week-end, the market counts about 300 stalls, and more than 500 during the antique fairs at Easter and August 15, attracting an international clientele.
Birthplace of the poet Rene Char, the town is also home many galleries and exhibitions.
