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!

The area around the apartment is worth investigating and a meal at the restaurant Au Jardin des Carmes is highly recommended and is a drink with the locals at Les Gambrinius which serves a vast selection of Belgian Beer. One absolutely must is a visit to the market at Marche les Halles. This is the best place to get your food to take back to the apartment to make brilliantly fresh salads. The apartment is on the ground floor, is clear and well decorated with a lovely courtyard area and everything you could need to make your stay enjoyable. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to stay in Avignon.

Great views from the house and a pool to cool down in. The area around had lots to see and the house book was excellent in detailing both the house, local restaurants ( the one in the village we visited twice because of the welcome and quality of the food), walks and comments on the various towns and villages to visit. We stayed as a group of four couples and with all four rooms having en -suites there was no queueing for the bathrooms!! An excellent choice of house.

The property is spotlessly clean and so well equipped you couldn't ask for more. Big thanks to therese for all her help, nothing was too much trouble. If we were to return to avignon I would not hesitate to stay in this villa again....
