Avignon, located at the crossroads of Provence and the Languedoc, near the Mediterranean, the Camargue, the Luberon and the Alpilles, is the ideal place to stay if you're visiting Provence.

This city, famed for art, was the centre of Christianity during the 14th century and has inherited an extraordinary legacy from this period: chapels, churches, city walls and of course the Palais des Papes and St Bénézet bridge which are listed as UNESCO world heritage sites.
The theatre festival, set up by Jean Vilar, held in the summer, is a global event in the world of live theatre. Thanks to its rich history, heritage and vibrant all-year-round cultural scene, Avignon was elected European city of culture in 2000. Discover the joys of Provençal gastronomy and sample some fine Côtes du Rhône wine – of which Avignon is the capital. It’s the perfect place to stroll and explore; come and share the Provençal lifestyle with us.
