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

The magnificent, ancient town of Avignon, France, is simply beautiful, and lies in the department of Vaucluse in the south of the country. Most famous for the Palais des Papes, the 14th Century home of Popes, Avignon has an amazing ability to endear visitors to the point that many return and by a villa in Avignon in which to live full time. Taking a short break to Avignon, although great fun, will not allow you to see anywhere near all the fantastic attractions or sample all the entertainment options the town offers.

Things to do on holiday in Avignon, France

There are so many things too see and investigate in Avignon that you would need many weeks staying in Avignon accommodation to see everything satisfactorily, but a week’s holiday gives you the luxury of choosing the monuments and attractions that interest you the most. UNESCO have nominated the town as a World Heritage Site, and wandering through the ancient, fortified, covered streets you can easily see why. Throughout the town, a range of museums tell parts of Avignon’s history, which dates back to the 5th century.

Some of the finest places to visit from an Avignon villa include the Palais des Papes, the Place de l’Horloge and the much photographed Pont d’Avignon. Despite the town’s ancient appearance, it has a very youthful atmosphere, always awash with music, art and activity of various kinds, especially during the Avignon Festival (Festival d’Avignon). The festival first ran in 1947 to celebrate dance, music and theatre, with events springing up all across the town, in the streets and at famous historical locations throughout Avignon. If you are lucky enough to take Avignon accommodation in July, you cannot fail to miss it! Through out the year, festivals of all varieties are held in the town, including film festivals, Baroque art, theatre and the famous rampart races in February.

There are a number of excellent walks you can take from an Avignon villa, mainly heading out towards the Alpilles, a small mountain range whose foothills are covered in olive and almond plantations giving them a much needed splash of colour during spring and summer. The golf course of Golf Grand Avignon is located just outside the town, and is open for use to anyone staying in Avignon accommodation or even just passing through.

Due to the town’s location, Avignon wine tours are hugely popular with visitors, and there are many fantastic vineyards from which to take a wine tour. Throughout the town, restaurants and cafes offer glasses of the best local produce, meaning you can take your own Avignon wine tour and see the finest monuments of the town at the same time!

Weather in Avignon, France

The stunning town of Avignon changes with the seasons, but is always truly enchanting. In summer, average temperatures reach around 26˚C, with very little rain from May until October, and winters are short and mild, averaging about 10˚C in the coldest months.

Thank you Monsieur Jean Claude for your exceptional hospitality.

5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful and quiet home, close to all places we wanted to visit. We felt like the place was part of the castle! I loved waking up to hear delicate sound of the charming garden fountain and enjoyed our breakfast there. The Jazz concert at AJMi will stay in our memories for ever.

Great apartment

4 of 5
Spacious apartment in a modern block. Avignon in winter can be cold, especially when the Mistral blows. The heating can only just cope as it is more designed to be cool in summer. The balconies would be great in summer, although the road can be noisy. Unfortunately, it was far too cold and windy to venture out for long while we were there. The fourth floor offers a better view of the old town. The block itself was very quiet and we rarely saw other residents. The ground floor parking was excellent. The supermarket close by is big enough for most needs and the walled city is a short walk away.
