“A nice clean unit in an interesting area”
Reviewed 29 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

A real problem in getting a REFUND of our " damage deposit " from PayPal ; stay away from PayPal. No support or help , after three weeks of problems, we had to open another a/c , then close one, then get money transfered , then pay to another person, and then we got 7.15 Eros deducted from the amount , for no reason , with no explanation.

“Wonderful”

We loved our two weeks in this beautiful second-floor apartment in October 2012. The owners could not have been nicer or more helpful, and the apartment was absolutely perfect for us. We would return again in a flash!

We did most of our food shopping on market days in town, and we bought all our bread and pastries from the fantastic bakery Patisserie Leyris at 45 rue Carnot, just a few blocks away.

We are an older couple, and we had no difficulty with the easy flight of stairs or the walking around town. We parked for free behind the playground, and it was an easy walk back and forth. We did not leave town on market days, however, so that we wouldn't lose our parking space.

The apartment is a perfect home base for exploring Provence. You will not be disappointed!

“A wonderful place to enjoy the village of L'Isle sur la Sorgue.”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

From the welcome package at check-in to the friendly advice and restaurant recommendations during our stay, we loved this apartment. The a/c worked well during the heat of July as did all of the appliances. The location is ideal - off the beaten path but in the middle of a lively small square. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was modern in every respect. The balcony was a great place to both begin the morning and to have a nightcap and to people watch. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here and would not hesitate to stay here again.

“Ideal Village Location”
Reviewed 3 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Our first trip to France, a month total. We found the Nordlys apartment exactly as the web site. If you want to be right in town this is the perfect location. You can see a wine shop, cheese shop and bakery from the living room balcony plus a couple of cafes. Eva and Niels were perfect hosts and responded to any requests though we didn't have many. If you want to visit Provence, see the sites but be not be in a larger city such as Avignon L'Isle su la Sorgue is perfect, stay here and you won't be disappointed,

“Great apartment in a great position”
Reviewed 5 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed in Apartment 1 for the second time. Nordlys is in a great location in the heart of the old town, close to shops and cafes/restaurants. It is a wonderfully appointed apartment It was easy to book on the Internet, and the service provided by Nils and Eva is first class. We liked walking everywhere, and you can take the train and buses to nearby towns if you have no car. It was also easy to get to either Avignon or Marseilles airports. The church bells tolling the time were lovely. There is good Wifi throughout the apartment. There was nothing we disliked about our stay.

“Lovely apartment - but so noisy”
Reviewed 29 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This is very nicely appointed small apartment right in the heart of the town. The location is great except for night time noise, apart from partying youngsters into the small hours one night, we had the next door bar running Karaoke till 2.00am another night and then and incredible din very early from the garbage men and/or from people coming to set up the market on other nights. If we kept the bedroom window shut we lacked air but if we kept it open we lacked sleep. Oh and you have to carry bags up stairs.

We are very sorry about the noise from the neighbors during your stay. It is not normal and we have also talked to them about it. Since then it has been much calmer.

The noise from the garbage men is unfortunately the price for being right in the center, but fortunately it only last for some minutes.

As to the weekly market noise (Sunday), then people come from all over the world to experience it, and you wake up right in the middle of it ...

“A perfect and charming getaway!”
Reviewed 6 April 2013 for a stay in March 2012

My wife and I stayed here for part of our 25th wedding anniversary trip. We were delighted with Niels and Eva from the beginning: they were good communicators, kept us up to date during the run-up to our trip, and made all deposits and terms very clear.

When we arrived, we found a lovely little apartment right in the central island of Isle sur La Sorgue. Everything was spotlessly clean, and the furnishings were new, tasteful, and delightful. All appliances were top quality. The place had everything we could want, and they even left us a gift basket with a bottle of champagne, since they knew it was our anniversary. (And it was GOOD champagne!) There are also lots of guide books to the local area in a variety of languages, so you can look up places to go.

Niels and Eva are delightful, as is their dog, Gandalf. Eva runs the shop downstairs, so she is around when guests need anything. She was very helpful whenever we had questions.

The bed is comfortable and there is lots of extra bedding if you need it. We shopped for food in town and cooked and ate in most of the time, and enjoyed the views out over the little square below. Parking is about a 3 minute walk away, but it is not a problem: we liked paring on the street across from the post office, but there are lots about 1 minute further away across a bridge.

The town itself is delightful: there are great shops, restaurants, and places to hang out. Check out C'Bio, the cosmetics shop at 3 Place Xavier Battini. Patrick and Laurence were delightful and friendly, and helped make our stay unforgettable.

Overall, this is an absolutely wonderful place to stay for that romantic getaway. Great wine country and all the delights of the Vaucluse are right at your fingertips, and you have attentive and friendly hosts. You could not ask for a better place to stay.
