There are airports at Avignon AVN (Caumont), Marseille-Provence MRS (Marignan), Lyon-Saint Exupéry LYS and Nice NCE. Nice and Lyon are the furthest but are served by long haul flights. For example, Australians can efficiently fly via Dubai direct to Nice or Lyon.


The Autoroute du Soleil (A7) runs through nearby Avignon and Cavaillon. From the south exit at Cavaillon and the Isle is directly north. You can bypass Cavaillon centre by taking the road next to the river to the west of the town as soon as you cross the river after leaving the autoroute. From the north, take exit 24 which serves Aéroport Caumont, Châteaurenard, L'Isle sur la Sorgue and Apt. Head east on the D900 and either go through the village of Caumont-sur-Durance or head further east to the D938 Route de Cavaillon (longer but not through Caumont).


There is an SNCF station in the Isle, close enough to walk to the apartment with wheelie luggage. It is on the Avignon - Marseille line. On timetables it is sometimes called L'Isle Fontaine de Vaucluse because it serves the Fontaine as well.


If coming from the UK or Paris by train to pick up a hire car then Avignon TGV is the logical station, only about 20 min by car to the Isle. Note that Avignon TGV station is not in the same place as the Avignon SNCF station, it is on the purpose built high-speed line that sweeps to the south of the town and carries on to Aix and Marseille.
