PROVENCE Day 1: Aix-en-Provence and L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue


Immediately after our lunch break we moved again, this time in the direction of our B&B in Cavaillon, where we dropped our baggages. We chose the small village of Cavaillon because of its strategic position, close to our next destination. In the late afternoon, we traveled nearby to L’Isle-sur-la_Sourgue.

The name L’Isle-sur-la_Sourgue comes from the River Sorgue, the source of which is the wonderful Fontaine de Vaucluse. This village is divided by canals that cross its streets. You can find many restaurants and French cafes down the river, overlooking the panorama.  It is perfect if you want to take a break!

In some parts of the village you can find ancient (but still running) wooden water wheels covered by moss.

If you are here, you can’t miss Notre-Dame-des-Anges, this church is deliciously baroque. Inside, 222 heads of angels were carved and you will find a pipe organ from 1648 as well.

Unfortunately, we had a bad timing and we could not get inside because a wedding was being celebrated.

Regarding food, if your budget is not so big, I do not recommend this area for lunch/dinner. The average price is high, so instead I recommend moving toward Avignon, which is not far and the prices of food are much more affordable.

Stay tuned!
