2016 is the 100th annual antiques show at L’Isle sur la Sorgue. Known world-wide as a haven for antique shops, bargain hunters, collectables and sheer beauty, L’Isle is aptly called ‘The Venice of the South’ due to its many waterways which thread through the old town.

Twice a year the weekly (Sunday) antique fair explodes and covers the whole town and the nearby large park – Place Gautier.

This year’s fair is from 25-28 March.
