We have had the good fortune to have traveled throughout France for vacations for over thirty-five years. Our trips have taken us to most corners of the country, some multiple times. We have toured the canals and rivers of France on small boats, and explored extensively by train and auto. On vacations with our three children we visited the châteaux of the Loire, hit the beaches of Côte d'Azur, walked the streets of Paris, hiked areas of the Alps, and watched the Tour de France. But we fell in love with Provence. You will too if you have not already!
In January of 2012, we stumbled on to this apartment, we have named Le Bijou, in the course of our third visit to L'Isle sur la Sorgue. Having discussed and dismissed the idea of buying property in France numerous times, we changed our minds when this opportunity presented itself on the way back from the boulangerie one morning.
We live in Indianapolis, Indiana, where we both grew up, worked (Patty) and continue to work (Kevin). Since purchasing the property we have continued to enjoy exploring France from our base at Le Bijou. We have made friends in the village, which has a life of its own beyond tourism, yet is small enough to walk completely around.
During the times we can't be in France, we welcome guests to enjoy life as a Provençal in Le Bijou in the quaint village of L'Isle sur la Sorgue. We hope one day you can visit.
