Q. Testimonial for Only Provence
R. We traveled with our two grown children and their spouses and Provence was the absolute perfect destination. The villa was perfection and the area provided us with stimulation and visual delight! It was the most wonderful experience that we hope to do again!
We had a wonderful stay ( 3 couples ) and were extremely comfortable with the excellent facilities, great kitchen, heated pool, very comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms and the location allowed for
easy day trips to a variety of local attractions in Provence. ( Gourde, Fountain de Vaucluse, Glanum the Roman site, Orange & Chaterneuf du Pape, Avignon, Pont du Gard, Lou Marin etc )
We would rate Mas des Pommiers a 5 star rating.

This exclusive property is located near l'Isle sur la Sorgue which is one of those places in Provence that one has to see. This "island city" lies at the foot of the Vaucluse plateau in the plains of Comtat Venaissin.
Its colors are nature's green and the bright reflection of the water shining from the several canals running through its center.
The river Sorgue surrounds the city as if to hug it.
Walking along the canals you will notice how they run between the narrow ancient streets. There are little bridges to cross and great wheels to look at with mossy blades turning in the river. 1 kilometer from the city is the "partage des eaux" where the river splits in two and forms a small pond where plane trees and green foliage abound
Long ago, the inhabitants lived off crayfishing (up to 35,000 crayfish a day!), and the silk and paper industries used those great wheels in the river for manufacturing their local products.
History has left its mark on L'Isle sur la Sorgue and points out its importance in Comtat Venaisson in the 14thc. The Collegiate church Notre Dame des Anges has an exceptional Baroque interior and the 18thc, hospital pharmacy boasts a rare collection of Moustier faience.
Also, magnificent mansions have been converted into art galleries, in particular the famous Maison René Char (18thc.), now a museum exhibiting such great artists as Miro, Mauguin or Dufy and a display area dedicated to René Char.
Antique lovers and art collectors will be gratified by the nearly 300 permanent antique dealers and second hand shops here.
L'Isle sur la Sorgue hosts antiques' fairs at Easter and over the August 15th holiday that have given a worldwide reputation to this small city. More than 500 antique dealers and second hand dealers gather here to show their treasures to customers from all over the world.
This city is truly worth the trip! But just a suggestion: leave your car in the parking lot provided, and stroll around the town -slowly taking in the atmosphere and letting yourself be captured by its charms.
The easiest way to get to Inland Provence from the US is to fly to Marseilles International Airport (MRS). If you would like to see Paris, fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport then connect directly to the TGV(high speed train) from CDG TGV2 to Avignon TGV(3 hours direct) and rent a car. You would plan to see Paris on the way back, taking the TGV from Avignon TGV to Gare de Lyon, getting a cab to your hotel in the city.

Only Provence co-founder Lydia Dean writes about their experiences raising a family, building a business in Provence, and later combining the love of travel with giving back in "Jumping the Picket Fence”. In 2021, she published “Light Through the Cracks,” a continuation of her journey, much of which has been based in Provence. Both books are available Amazon, Amazon.uk, and Amazon.Fr.
