Make a holiday rental villa to rent or accommodation in Avignon, France your home away from home

Anyone who has stayed in French villas to rent near Avignon, France, will know that there is no point taking self catering Avignon accommodation for just a weekend break. There is simply so much to see and do from a villa to rent in Avignon that you need as much time as possible to really explore. Located in the Vaucluse department of Provence, Avignon is a region of beautiful countryside, whose towns burst with history, culture and activity.

Things to do in Avignon, France

When visiting a French villa to rent near Avignon, a visit into the town itself is an almost essential activity. Avignon is one of the most incredible sights in the South of France, and many hours can be happily spent wandering around the fortified walls and winding streets. There are many beautiful medieval buildings to explore, from the famous Palais des Papes to the impressive Saint Benezet Bridge. There are also a great number of museums within the town too, with artefacts and collections representing everything from local artists to the region’s history.

The Avignon area is one of lush countryside, unspoilt by man and an absolute delight to explore. The large rivers that carve their way through the rolling hills and deep forests are a wonderful asset, providing some fantastic walking, cycling and riding routes, and fishermen flock from across southern France to fish these rivers. Fishing permits are readily available from local tabacs, and there is no need to pre-book a permit when travelling to self catering Avignon accommodation.

Shopping in Avignon is an absolute pleasure. Each of the charming little villages that pop up in the Avignon countryside welcomes a weekly market selling only the finest of local produce at amazing prices. The gourmet restaurants in Avignon take full advantage of this, ensuring that eating out doesn’t only provide some of the finest flavours available, but you also know that the ingredients used in Avignon’s gourmet restaurants are local and fantastically fresh.

Wow.

5 of 5
This house is simply incredible. As great as the photos are, they cannot capture how good it is. We visited as a large group of friends for a wine tasting weekend. The house is virtually it's own compund, set behind a huge gated wall and with a mind boggling arrangement of rooms. The living area is huge with a nice fireplace. Kitchen is very well stocked. All the rooms were very nicely decorated. And you're right in the centre of town so can easily get to the various tasting caves or winery cellar doors. Guillaume was super friendly and very responsive to all our emails.

We had eight people staying and there was plenty of room for everyone. The pool is beautiful, perfect for a the number of guests. Everything is clean and well designed. We enjoyed the very well appointed summer kitchen. We used the grill for some family meals and it was excellent. The whole family would love to come again!

Ghislaine is a phenomenal hostess, providing first class accommodation in a large and beautifully decorated farmhouse, surrounded by extensive and magnificent gardens. The food that Ghislaine provides is top class restaurant standard - from breakfast on the sunny terrace overlooking the pool and gardens, to the most amazing multi-course home cooked dinners with wine, in the comfort of your own private dining room. In short, the best stay we have ever had. Don’t miss this treat – make sure you stay here and you will be speaking about your own experience for a long time afterwards! Ghislaine, je vous remercie pour ce merveilleux vacances et comme promis, nous allons revenir à rester avec vous. Andrew & Sharon
