Discover the charm of Avignon, the beating heart of Provence
Just 10 minutes from our hotel
Avignon mixes its contemporary advantages with an extraordinary history. No less than seven popes, including two who helped the architecture to flourish, resided in the city during the 14th century. This flamboyant heritage is matched today by a high quality of life. Just 10 minutes by car from our hotel, discover the historic city centre, a large part of which is classed as a UNESCO world heritage site, including the Palais des Papes (the largest Gothic palace in the world) and the Pont d’Avignon (Pont Saint Bénezet bridge). There’s also the Place du Palais with the baroque façade of the Hôtel des Monnaies, the Petit Palais museum and the Cathédrale des Doms, as well as the walls from the Jardin des Doms up to the bridge. A dynamic city full of life and charm, the former Medieval capital of Christendom is also known worldwide for its theatre festival held in July. With everything Avignon has to offer with culture and tourism, there’s always something going on in the heart of Provence. If you’re a fan of golf, the Golf du Grand Avignon golf course with 18 holes is less than 10 minutes away by car.
