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!

Our stay was more magical and memorable than we could have imagined given the perfect accommodations at Les Anges 2 and the warm welcome and valuable guidance we received by its charming owner, Stephan. The studio itself is perfectly situated on a picturesque cobble stone residential street, a short, easy walk to all that Avignon has to offer including the Palais des Papes (a must visit), the opera house and the varied exquisite dining and shopping. The studio is warmly welcoming, meticulously decorated and exuding charm - exposed beams, high ceilings, beautiful marble floors and modern amenities abound (including a great coffee machine with delicious coffee and teas). Stephan could not have been more accommodating from picking us up at the train station, to chilled champagne in the fridge with chocolates. He has a wealth of information that you cannot get from travel books and this made our visit particularly exquisite especially the operetta he recommended and tickets he obtained for us. We were very lucky to learn that he also offers a service to the airport (in our case Marseille) in the comfort of his elegant car and his company. The perfect end to a most memorable 4 days. Thank you Stephan! I would give you you a 5+ review if I could.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    This is a beautiful , well decorated property in a reasonably quiet area around 10 minutes walk from the Palais des Papes and the Place de l'Horloge. 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.

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....
