A bit of a walk, but very pretty and easy for all abilities.

This is the source of the river Sorgue and as such, pumps out lots of beautiful, clear, blue and green water. But it can be a bit of a disappointment during times of low water... read more

This is the source of the river Sorgue and as such, pumps out lots of beautiful, clear, blue and green water. But it can be a bit of a disappointment during times of low water levels. It's a pretty town as well, with lots of places along the waterside to stop for a meal or a drink.... Good for a... More

We returned to see it in the fall. It was as beautiful as ever! You can take it easy and walk the walkway or be adventurous and climb the rocks up the river. The shops were open along the walkway and stayed open in the evening. There is plenty for children too and a good museum. A word of caution,... More

The source in the middle of the cliff is just unreal and after all the rain on mount Ventoux the cascades were really impressive.

We spent five nights in Fontaine de Vaucluse, and hiked up to the source of La Sorgue. It is an easy walk from the town center. Although the walkway is lined with some cheesy souvenir and snack stores, overall it is a pretty area, and the river is crystal clear. If you want a more challenging hike, go over the... More

My wife and family visited the source of La Sorgue in October. The spring itself was still, but impressive - it's over 300 meters deep. The walk from centre ville is uphill, but easy. If you have good balance and good shoes, climb over the fence (it's OK), and walk down to the cavernous area where you'll see tithe source... More

The source of the River Sorgue, the Fontaine is a spring that is 300 meters in depth in a dark cave. The biggest spring in France! The water is deep agate blue and shrouded by rocks. Parking is not far, walk through the quaint village then take an easy path up to the Fontaine.

This place was not originally in my plan. I went there because this is one of the spots of the local tour I joined. We arrived early in the morning so the place is calm and beautiful. Water is crystal clear. Walk up the slop and you will see the gorgeous mountains. There should be bus departed from Avignon on... More

This is an exceptional natural French scenic area and is full of intriguing history.The fountain is the source of the River Sourge which flows through the scenic town of L'Isle-sur-la Sourge where the Wednesday market is a well worth visit.Sadly,our visits to Provence are in the summer and have never seen the hugh surges which occur in March.The small village...

We visited La Fontaine de Vaucluse on a beautifully sunny day when staying in St Remy. We are so pleased we did and would be a good trip to include L'Isle sur la Sorgue as well as a short drive away. Beautiful scenery and river walks and heaps of food stands, ice cream stands, cafes and restaurants as well as... More

Lovely little village at the source of the river Sorgue. We stopped for lunch in one of the restaurants over looking the river before strolling up to the source with the rest if the crowds. Lots of little shops to stop and browse in, not to mention a plethora of artisan ice cream and slushy stands. Some of them spraying... More
