With its impressive medieval ramparts surrounding the entire city and the inevitable Palais des papes, situated on a rocky promontory overlooking the Rhône, Avignon is a provincial city at the confluence of the Rhône and the Durance, a meeting point of the great European communication and trade routes, which led it to play a major role in the history of Europe in the Middle Ages.
Avignon has always been a great city of culture and the meeting place of civilisations. This extraordinary destiny, which earned it its inclusion in the Unesco World Heritage list, can be discovered by walking through its streets and visiting its squares, which are like journeys through time. It is definitely a destination not to be missed! You will be ideally located by staying in our hotel as we are only a few minutes drive from Avignon, which is why we are often listed as an Avignon hotel on websites or guides dedicated to tourism in Provence.
