We arrived at 7:30 am from Avignon after a 25 minute drive. After stopping for a morning café, we started out on an antiques treasure hunt. There was a little bit of everything on offer for all types of décor. These are some photos of the special L’Isle sur la Sorgue extravaganza. There are markets held every Thursday and Sunday throughout the year.

The next grand Antiques Market will be in the Spring of 2015. We can help you plan an unforgettable holiday vacation!
