Avignon City Stay

Avignon City stay

A real 'taster' of Provence - the beautiful old city of Avignon combined with escorted excursions to some of the most interesting sights and beautiful countryside just a short drive away.

This short break is the ideal combination if you have time for only a short visit to Provence. Staying in a comfortable centrally located hotel in the old city of Avignon allows you to explore this beautiful old city with its world renowned sites including the Papal Palace and the famous bridge across the Rhone , and also include excursions a little further afield. 

Bordered to the north and west by the river Rhone, the medieval city of Avignon is the capital of the Vaucluse. Massive ramparts punctuated by seven gates surround the immaculately preserved medieval centre with the magnificent buildings of the Papal Palace at its heart. Stroll the bustling Place de L'Horloge, enjoy the many art galleries and museums, take a boat trip on the River Rhone or simply wander the atmospheric medieval streets.

Three half day escorted excursions are included during your stay to visit the the picturesque perched villages of the Luberon, the charming market town of St. Remy and nearby medieval fortress village of Les Baux, and a day combining wine tasting in Chateauneuf du Pape with the Roman theatre in Orange. However there is a choice of other trips further afield which you can add to your holiday if you wish, including Lavender excursions during the months of June and July.

Tailor Made City Stay

If this short break as planned does not exactly fit your requirements or if you would like to combine a stay in Avignon with another Provencal city or some time in the countryside, we will be delighted to plan a tailor made holiday exactly to your holiday duration and interests. A stay in Avignon combines particularly well with a stay in Aix en Provence allowing you to discover two completely contrasting Provencal cities.

A stay in Avignon is also easily combined with a few days in either of our three specialist areas for a complete contrast to city life. Alternatively Aix en Provence, Arles and Vaison la Romaine are all fascinating places to explore and also excellent bases from which to discover the surrounding countryside.
