Villa/ Gite rental

We are a group of 6 adults, 2 children and a baby and really want to stay within walking distance of Isle-sur-la Sorgue as we are not planning to hire a car (we really don't want to hire car as very happy to relax in villa and go for walks and into town as only for a week). We don't mind a villa, gite or B&B but must have at least 4 bedrooms, a pool and be really comfortable accommodation. Driving myself mad trying to find somewhere suitable-esp near town.

Any ideas at all would be greatly appreciated-this town looks so lovely.

Someplace IN town (or on the outskirts) big enough for 9 people with a pool is going to be very difficult, I think -- the real estate is generally too precious!

You might try searching for 2 properties -- it's not uncommon to see a grand old house that's been divided into 2 or more flats, but can be rented as a whole for large groups.

If that doesn't work, perhaps something along a bus route would be convenient?

You don't say where you're looking -- but you could try any of these:





Or contact the office of tourism in Isle-sur-la-Sorgue directly -- the O de T in many towns keep a list of rental properties to hand.

You might try this agency, but there is almost nothing within the town of Isle itself.


And I really would recommend a car. So much to see nearby.

Thanks so much for your replies.

I know it would be so much easier to have a car but it would be so great to not have to worry about parking and as we only have one possible person to drive etc. so would have to get a small mini bus! Sure we could get the occassional taxi and I guess we want more of a lazy, chill out week anyway.

Couldn't seem to see any property that would fit the bill-will def contact the Office of Tourism directly. In meantime will carry on driving myself mad!!

I stayed in a lovely gite in St Remy last month, which I found on the Guardian website guardiancottages.co.uk/sites/…home.aspx They have places all over Provence, inc some in l'Isle.

You might also look at new holiday village on edge of town - L'Ostau de Sorgue. They have range of house sizes, pools, and are short walk from SuperU supermarket

Use an accredited French estate agent who will have lots of holiday rentals on their books. Most important your deposit is then legally guaranteed unlike any thing plucked from the web, plausable as it may seem. Agents on the spot can sort out problems, unlike the nightmare of dealing with an landlord who may live in another country and also you benefit from competive local rents rather than rip off rates.

We stayed here in 2006 and it was deluxe. It's about a km walk into town. It's beautiful, has a pool, gorgeous rooms. quiet, the owners are friendly and the breakfasts were lovely.

Four posts, most reviving old threads and all pushing the same property. It starts to look like advertising....
