L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue Travel Guide: 34 reviews and 118 photos

Marie told us to be sure to come here on a Sunday for the town’s market day. Oh my god, the whole town was a giant street market.

Great Market Day

On some back neighborhood streets, we found some type of local event using 2-man boat race in canoes circling the town, going under some very low bridges. The racers actually had to lie down in the canoe as they went under some bridges. The crowds were cheering the teams from the bridges and side walks. Eventually, everyone fell into the stream one way or another and ended up drinking beer at the finish line standing in the waist deep water. What a kick that was!

Parking was about 5 blocks away

and Joan creatively parked our little car up on a sidewalk, perpendicular to the street. We then wandered around amongst some very large crowds, but loved it all. There are little streams running all throughout this village complete with a green moss covered working water-wheel.
