Best for col­lec­tors: L’isle sur la Sorgue

Country Life Every Week - - Property Comment -

Known as Provence’s an­tique cap­i­tal, Isle sur la Sorgue has more an­tiques shops than any other place in France. There’s a mar­ket twice weekly (Thurs­days and Satur­days), but the town also hosts ma­jor events such as the Foire In­ter­na­tionale à la Bro­cante et à l’an­tiq­uité. The Tues­day mar­ket in Cur­curon, in the Lubéron, is also worth a visit, as are the ones in Bon­nieux and St Saturnin-les-apt. ‘L’isle sur la Sorgue is also well lo­cated for the route from Lon­don St Pan­cras, with a di­rect train to Avi­gnon TGV,’ adds Jack Har­ris of Knight Frank.

Lo­cated just on the edge of L’isle sur la Sorgue, this 19th-cen­tury house would be per­fect for en­ter­tain­ing. It has 10 bed­rooms, a large swim­ming pool and a beau­ti­fully land­scaped gar­den of about five acres. €2.08 mil­lion. Knight Frank (020–7861 1139)
