Back in L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue – the Venice of Provence

This small town, famous for its many antique shops and antique markets most Sundays, definitely looks and feels different without the sun, the heat and the crowds of summer. L’Isle sur la Sorgue has canals and several working water wheels with lots of waterside cafés and restaurants to choose from. Even though it is so very different in the winter, it was still lovely to wander the Sunday market, pop into familiar shops and a favorite patisserie, and traipse down lanes to our lunch destination, Bella Vita. My friend had read a review of this little Italian place (with fresh pasta) at Place de la Republic. Great choice! As always, the flower seller, just in front of our lunch place, had a beautiful, cheerful display of a wide variety of blooms.

Below is a collage of pics from the day.
