Alan Rogers Review
This popular, well organised municipal site is well placed, just 1.5 km. from the attractive small town of Isle-sur-la Sorgue, known for its antique galleries. There are 164 medium sized level pitches (109 for touring) arranged in groups of four; all have 10A electricity. Each group is separated by tall hedges and most have a little shade. In high season, a few competitions are organised (boules or volleyball), plus some children’s entertainment, but this is quite low key. You will receive a warm welcome from the English speaking staff.
Running alongside the site, the River Sorgue is only six kilometres from its source in the mountains. It is still very clear and used for canoeing, swimming and fishing. The river forms small canals and waterways, interspersed with a number of water wheels. There are many bars and restaurants, some with seating overlooking the water which has a cooling effect in summer. The markets on Thursday and Sunday (free shuttle bus) fill the old streets, and brightly coloured pottery, table covers, fruit and vegetables make it a photographers’ paradise. Many interesting towns and villages, Avignon, Gordes and Orange should not be missed.
