Many reviews and testimonials from our guests from all over the world
The town of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue used to be
called “L’Isle en Venaissin” and was originally a city of fishermen on
land salvaged from the river. Called “Insula” in the Middle Ages, the
city was a true island amidst marshlands which were slowly drained by
the construction of the canals. Many canals were dug, both through and
around the town, giving rise to the affectionate name of
« Venice of the Comtat ».
Since time immemorial, the steady, abundant waters of the
Sorgue river have powered crafts and industry. Sturdy waterwheels led
to the establishment of flour mills as early as the 12th century, then
to the creation of workshops which worked with wool and silk. The
picturesque water wheels which today remain, imparting a special charm
to Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, only barely represent the seventy-two wheels
which churned away in the 19th century, and the intense business
activity which thrived in the city center. Silk works gave rise to
immense fortunes, and Isle-sur-la-Sorgue was also the wool center for
the entire department of Vaucluse.
The historical city center was once surrounded by ramparts, and continues
to exude the charm created by the marks left by each passing era. The
“Tour d’Argent”, which stands near the apse of the church, was built in
the 13th century by the Counts of Toulouse. Not far from there,
sumptuous city mansions with Gothic or Renaissance façades line the
narrow city streets, bearing witness to the fact that Isle-sur-la-Sorgue was once the chief city in the Comtat. Notre-Dame-des-Anges collegiate
church, rebuilt (except for the chancel) in the mid-17th century, is an
outstanding example of Baroque art in southern France. The Brun family
of architects has left several remarkable constructions, including the
Granary, now home to the Tourism Office and the hospital with its lovely vestibule, chapel, apothecary and beautiful garden and fountain. The
Brun family also built many city mansions, including the gracious hôtel
Donadeï de Campredon, now home to the Maison René-Char.
Isle-sur-la-Sorgue upholds the memory of the former Jewish quarter, protected by the
popes. The thriving Jewish population actively contributed to the city’s prosperity. The importance of fishermen also remains alive. On
flat-bottomed boats known as nego chin, Isle-sur-la-Sorgue fishermen
took off in all seasons to fish crayfish, trout, eel and grayling, using many different tactics.
Isle-sur-la-Sorgue is also well-known as home to the poet René Char, born there in 1907
and where he spent his entire youth, and where he came to live after his experience with surrealism, and his exemplary leadership in the
Resistance movement. Between 1928 and 1988, he published collections of
poetry, worked with literary and artistic journals, weaving
relationships with his contemporary artists and writers. René Char draws inspiration from his native land, the Sorgue river, Mont Ventoux and
the outlying, familiar countryside. Acknowledged during his lifetime as
one of the greatest poets of his time, René Char well deserves the
homage to his memory that has been created with the Maison René Char,
opened in 2003.
