First floor

This floor plan was prepared in good faith and may not be exactly to scale.

The Comtat Venaissin was for centuries a hotly-contested region of Haute Provence, a separate political enclave which surrounded the Principality of Orange and the town of Avignon. For centuries a separate political entity, it came under Papal rule in 1274 and stubbornly resisted annexation by the French throne. Its capital Carpentras on the Auzon was in Greek and Roman times a lively market town, and later the favourite haunt of the Avignon popes. It is now famous for its truffle markets. L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is built on the islands formed by five branches of the river Sorgue, with lots of waterside restaurants and cafés, as well as several large antique waterwheels, still turning. The town is famous for its numerous antiques dealers and Sunday antiques market.

Mr R. Sparks (2013)

What a lovely house – it really was very good. The main living room is beautiful with great views. The sunset view from the terrace is very good. Journey times and routes to Avignon, Orange and Mont Ventoux are easy. These are our favourite places to visit.

Mrs Meike Doherty (2009)

Lovely outdoors sitting area. Nice pool. Gorgeous views. Good room layout to cater for 10 people.

Mr Ben Uglow (2009)

The villa and surroundings were outstanding. The house was decorated beautifully but still child friendly. We had a very relaxing time and will definitely return again.

Mrs Katie Scorey

A beautiful house full of style and character. A lovely setting with a great pool, orchard and views.
