I'sle-Sur-La-Sorgue

One of the most picturesque, medieval villages is this little beauty in the Provence region/Cote d'Azur....follow me on the path tour, won't you?

The Sorgue River hugs this ancient village, with meandering river beds flowing through and along the narrow streets...and past the many working (and non) windmills...

With over 300...yes I said 300!....permanent antique and vintage stores, it's an antique hunters dream town. Every August 15, there is a very wonderful and large puces where the treasures abound. As this year's fair approaches, I am reminded of a lucky antique dealer who has a home in this village. Maybe she'll let me rent a bunkbed, n'est ce pa??? Here is a peak at her heaven on earth:


Oh to be able to whip up rosemary chicken and lavender rice pudding in this farmhouse kitchen....

And then to serve and eat it on this heavenly veranda....






I'm asking for this luscious outdoor spot. I'm hoping she'll take a trade of Dodger Dogs...
