Vacation rentals in Avignon

Living in the centre of Avignon

Avignon lies at the confluence of the Rhône and Durace rivers and is not only the largest city in Provence, but also the former European Capital of Culture. As such, the city of 90,000 inhabitants has a rich fund of holiday apartments and holiday homes. You will find what you are looking for when looking for a holiday home, especially in the city centre near the Palais des Papes on Rue Thiers or Avenue de la Folie. Thanks to its central location, you can reach almost all the sights of Avignon on foot from there.

Holiday domicile on the Rhône

Avignon, on the banks of the Rhône, is a particularly beautiful place to live. Also there you will find numerous apartments, which are often even equipped with a generous balcony. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a holiday home, you should look around on the peninsula in the west of the city, almost completely enclosed by the river. In addition to modern apartments and houses, there are also some houseboats, so that you can also spend your holiday in the middle of the historic river.

Travelers and Activities

Avignon for cyclists

Avignon is located in the heart of Provence, one of the most scenic regions of France, which is also characterized by its varied topography. For cyclists, whether pleasure cyclists, mountain bikers or ambitious road cyclists, there is hardly a region in France that offers better conditions for cycling. You can choose between leisurely tours along the Rhône, lined with castles and palaces, through fragrant lavender fields or up to rugged mountains such as Mont Ventoux. A vacation rental in Avignon is therefore the ideal starting point for cyclists, especially as there are more than 1,500 kilometres of cycle paths in the region around the city.

Avignon for medieval fans

There is hardly a city in France where the Middle Ages are still as alive today as in Avignon. One of the reasons for this is the historical old town, which is surrounded by a massive medieval defensive wall and has hardly changed in many parts. In addition to many cardinal palaces and houses from the 16th-18th century, which also house countless large and small museums, the old town also has churches worth seeing, the ruins of the world-famous Pont Saint-Bénézet and the Papal Palace. Avignon will make the heart of every visitor interested in the Middle Ages and history in general beat faster.

Things to know

Best Travel Time for Avignon

Its location in Provence gives Avignon a Mediterranean climate, often found in the south of France. Mild winter months alternate with hot and dry summer months. The highest temperatures, 30 degrees Celsius at the peak, are reached in July. The same applies to the minimum number of rainy days, which are limited to five days in July. If you want something like a guarantee of good weather to see Avignon at its best, you should visit the City of the Popes in July. However, the metropolis of Provence is also worth a visit outside July, between April and June and in September and October.

Regular events in Avignon

Probably the most famous regular event in Avignon is the Avignon Festival, which is all about dance, theatre and singing. During the last three weeks of July, the city on the Rhône becomes a magnet for tens of thousands of culture lovers, which is why you should book your vacation rental as early as possible, especially if you are travelling in July. The programme includes well over 1,500 performances by national and international artists against the backdrop of historic buildings.

Avignon is nicknamed 'City of the Popes' because it was the seat of the Pope between 1309 and 1423.

Top 5 travel tips

1. On the trail of the popes

The most popular attraction in Avignon by far is the Pope's Palace, a symbol of the period of the Avignonese papacy. The building, erected in 1335, housed a total of seven popes and five other anti-popes and was the scene of numerous historical entanglements and intrigues. Today, in addition to most of the building, you can also visit the beautiful gardens and learn how the Popes of the Middle Ages resided there.

2nd Musée du Petit Palais

The so-called museum in the small palace is housed in a building dating from the 14th century and is primarily concerned with paintings from the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance, for example from the collection of Giampietro Campana. Art lovers will get their money's worth in this impressive museum.

3rd Pont Saint-Bénézet

A few hundred metres from your holiday home, on the banks of the Rhône, is the ruin of the city's medieval arched bridge, which used to have 22 brick arches, spanning both arms of the river. After the bridge was severely damaged by several wars and floods between the 14th and 17th centuries, today only a fraction of the formerly proud arches protrude into the floods. Also worth a visit is the chapel of St. Nicholas of Myra on a bridge pillar.

4. In vino veritas

If you like wine, you should definitely visit one of the many Provencal wineries when visiting Avignon. In addition to interesting guided tours, during which you will learn more about the history and techniques of viticulture, most of the estates offer extensive wine tastings, during which you will taste the best wines of the house together with the responsible winemaker.

5th Avignon cuisine

A visit to Avignon would not be complete without the typical Avignon cuisine. Typical for the local cuisine is the use of a lot of olive oil, onions and the typical Provencal herbs. So don't miss the opportunity to enjoy typical dishes such as stewed allis shad, Avigonesian daube, Crespeou or Papeton d'aubergine in one of the many cosy restaurants in the old town.
