Many of you may be familiar with the antique filled town of Isle sur la Sorgue in the south of France, but as it’s likely that most visitors go there in the summer, you may not know that a highpoint of the year is the Easter weekend.
This is the 51st year of the Isle sur la Sorgue Antiques Art & You fair. From 13th to 17th April, the 300 regular dealers in the town are joined by several hundred other antique and brocante dealers from all over France, for a four day long brocante and design bonanza.
Each day of the fair sees different events, including two late night shopping and even an Antique Dealers Ball on the Saturday evening.
As well as the different buying areas, there are also plenty of places to eat during the day.
The best way to experience the fair is to stay close by and spend a couple of days, taking your time to walk the narrow streets and really take it all in. In my book the best place to stay near Isle sur la Sorgue is the quietly stunning hotel, Bastide de Gordes. Spacious rooms, impeccable service and an excellent restaurant. One of the most luxurious addresses in the South .
