The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Situated a mere 6km away from the historic City of Avignon in Provence (the once Papal City with its famous St Bénezet bridge).
The area is rich in history, tradition and natural beauty and is the perfect place for a break at any time of the year with the most amount of sunshine hours recorded in France.
Wine lovers will enjoy visiting the numerous caves and private cellars in this area, known as “The Wine Route of the Côtes du Rhône” (“La Route des Vins”): the villages of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Vacqueyras, Gigondas, Beaumes de Venise, and Taval to mention just a few, are all only a short drive away.
For golfers, there are 4 courses within easy driving distance: The Grand Avignon in Vedène; Golf de Chateaublanc in Morière les Avignon; Golf du Moulin in Orange; and Provence Country Club in l'Isle sur la Sorgue.
Why not visit the wonderful festivals during the summer months: Festival d’Avignon, the Roman Amphitheatre in Orange, and the International Piano Festival at la Roque d'Anthéron.
Experience the ambience of Provence, not to mention its produce, at the famous markets at Uzès, Aix-en-Provence, and L'Isle sur la Sorgue with its plethora of antique shops (the "antique capital" of Provence)!
There are numerous places to visit nearby: the Roman coliseum at Arles, the Pont du Gard, Chateau des Baux, and Sénanque Abbaye, not to mention the breathtaking hill top villages at Gordes, Séguret, and Suzette or climbing (or cycling) Mont Ventoux!
Often referred to as the "City of Popes" because of the presence of popes and antipopes from 1309 to 1423 during the Catholic schism, it is currently the largest city and capital of the département of Vaucluse. This is one of the few French cities to have preserved its ramparts, its historic centre, the palace of the popes, Rocher des Doms, and the bridge of Avignon. It was classified a World Heritage Site by UNESCO under the criteria I, II and IV.
As a showcase of arts and culture, the fame of its annual theatre festival, known as the Festival of Avignon, which is staged along the streets of Avignon during July, has far exceeded the French borders.
Avignon is situated on the left bank of the Rhône river, about 580 km (360 miles) south-east of Paris, 229 km (142 miles) south of Lyon and 85 km (52 miles) north-north-west of Marseille. Avignon occupies a large oval-shaped area, not fully populated and covered to a large extent by parks and gardens. Filled with museums and art galleries, it is also a wonderful place to shop!
The historical town centre bounded by its ramparts ClimateAvignon has a Mediterranean climate characterised by relatively dry summers and cool, damp winters. The city is often subject to windy weather; the strongest wind is the mistral. The popular proverb is, however, somewhat exaggerated, Avenie ventosa, sine vento venenosa, cum vento fastidiosa (windy Avignon, pest-ridden when there is no wind, wind-pestered when there is)
