In Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, we stay
in the three star Hotel Les Nevons which is in a quiet location two blocks from the
centre of the town on the edge of the sparkling Sorgue river. Rooms are large and comfortable with twin or
beds, air-conditioning, hair-dryer, satellite TV, private bathroom with tub and shower and
a private balcony with sliding glass doors overlooking the Sorgue River and the
pretty hotel gardens. There is a small rooftop pool. Free
wifi is available. All rooms are non-smoking.
In Avignon we stay one night (the final night) at the four
Mercure Pont d'Avignon in an ideal location near the old Papal Palace and backing onto
are air conditioned and have TV. Bathrooms
are equipped with hair-dryers.
France is known for its food so we want our guests
to experience a variety and have a real "Taste of
France". Somehow French fruit seems more flavourful
the bread flakier than that at home. In France cheese-making is considered an art form.
Food is important here and when you see two locals
engaging in what seems to be a heated argument if you
listen closely and can understand you will discover that
the topic is usually food-related.
Breakfast is a buffet with fresh croissants, cereals and milk, toast,
yogurt, fruit salad, eggs, home-made jams, coffee or tea and fruit juices.
At Hotel Les Nevons breakfast can be taken on the outdoor patio.
Lunch (not included) is usually a picnic and we shop at a market
or grocery store before heading out for the day. A usual picnic consists of a fresh baguette with cheese, cold
meat, fruit and perhaps a little wine.
Dinners are three
course menus at a variety of restaurants. If you are vegetarian or have food allergies please let us know in advance.
We have been doing this holiday since
1998 and tasted our way through the region, each year refining our
choice of restaurants. The week’s dinner menus --
planned and coordinated to provide quality and variety
include a traditional cręperie, a jazzy tapas bar, as
well as more formal dining rooms.
