La Maison sur la Sorgue - Esprit de France

Reviewed 22 October 2017 via mobile

First I want to thank our host and his wife for taking such good care of us from beginning to end. Our friends cancelled two weeks before our trip because of an emergency. We were so crazed that we called at 2 am to make sure that we had a room! The host took it all in stride. He suggested a hotel in Avignon for our first night as he was booked and gave us a room for the rest of our stay. Having never been to this part of Provence we were concerned but glad to save our trip.
The hotel is well located in the middle of the center of town. Be careful because the gps may take you through streets too narrow for your car. You can pull up in front from the other direction. Your car will be taken to a garage for safekeeping and brought back when you need it. Do not plan to arrive or leave during the morning of the Sunday or Thursday market as it is in front of and surrounding this hotel!
Our room was on the third floor and there is no elevator. If you have trouble with steps let the host know and I am sure he will accommodate you. The hotel is beautiful and very clean. Our room was a great piece of the top floor and it was huge with a shower, sink, table, chairs and king size bed. There was also a huge balcony overlooking the courtyard.Breakfast is served in the morning in the courtyard. The decor is south of France with touches of Myanmar. Beautiful colors, art and modern furniture on tiled floors. There is an adjacent store and gallery as the owner represents several artists.
Most important our host laid out our trip and made all of our restaurant reservations . Many, many thanks. I always defer to someone who knows the area and your recommendations were all excellent making our trip far more relaxing. I should add that my husband is not a great traveler so the help was greatly appreciated.
My only suggestion is to allow guests to put food in the downstairs kitchen and to be able to bring food in or pay to have someone cook a dinner. Sometimes it's nice not to have to go out.
I should also mention that this is a charming town, the little Venice of Provence and a major antiques center. It also seems that several merchants are retired from other careers and from different parts of the world making an interesting, diverse and quietly cosmopolitan center. There are excellent restaurants , wine bars and a large Super U, the major grocery store. This is a good home base for touring Provence and Maison Sur La Sorgue elegant, private and well run.

Located in a restored building in the historical l'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue center, La Maison sur la Sorgue offers wonderfully decorated and spacious rooms, with a delightful breakfast served every morning. In addition to the rooms, the hotel has a beautiful lobby and dining area along with a lovely terrace.
And, one cannot say enough regarding how wonderful the hosts are, Frederic and Marie-Claude. Immediately welcoming and warm, after a short while it was like we were staying with long time friends, always there to assist in any way they could.

This small hotel is amazing! Your hosts Fredrick and Marie-Claude are very gracious and are very accommodating. They gave us such a warm welcome and were always there to offer us a welcome upon our return from our daily adventures. The daily breakfast offering was superb, we were always offered a delicious well prepared meal to start the day. The room was very comfortable and and quiet with all the conveniences one could want. The location is just perfect for exploring the village on foot. The Thursday outdoor market was very large with allot to offer. Try and plan your stay over a Thursday or a weekend to take advantage of the market. The nearby surrounding area also offer allot to see, thanks Fredrick for your suggestions on what to see. The art gallery and shop that are apart of the hotel add to the overall experience of your stay We are starting to plan our next trip to the south of France and we will return here. Well done!

Room Tip: our room was on the top floor, we loved it, it was very quiet.

We stayed at La Maison as our Provence home for 4 days. It was a little like a fairy tale. The building was just Gorgeous, our room was huge, multi-level and had a private little terrace. The view from our bed room was amazing. Each morning, Frederic and team made each morning special with an gourmet breakfast and great ideas for the day. Each day we left and found ourselves coming back early to explore the island instead. Driving and parking on the island can be tricky, but Frederic made sure it was simple for us. He also went way out of his way to help my crazy sister make sure we got wine and chocolate four our anniversary. We returned home to him carrying up our chilled wine and exquisite chocolates. Pamper yourself...stay at this place and reserve the time to stick around and really enjoy it! (Check out the view from our room. We could practically reach out and touch it)

My wife and I stayed here for one night on the tail end of our honeymoon. Frederic was the most amazing host and runs a fabulous home/shop that seem to blend elegantly into one another! We stayed in a gorgeous room that overlooked the quaint Provencal street where the entrance to the home is. Large room, large bathroom, and every amenity one could need in the South of France (wine cork, bread knife, good book)!

Frederic had amazing recommendation and made a quick reservation for us for dinner. We enjoyed discussing the incredible art work in the hotel/home, particularly the original prints by Hans Silvester (who has stayed and shows his work often at the hotel). I almost left with an original print myself, had I not spent so much on the trip already, I certainly would have!

An amazing breakfast prepared and presented by Frederic in the morning. Eggs to order, wonderful baked goods/hams and cheese/yogurt and fruit. The communal space is massive indoor/outdoor and with only 4 rooms could never feel over-stuffed.

We truly look forward to returning sometime soon for a longer stay and hope to have a Hans Silvester print purchased from Frederic sometime in the near future!
