Avignon, was known as Avenio in Antiquity which translates as 'city by the river' in reference to the Rhône river which flows alongside the city.

Avignon has always been an important city of Provence but even more so after 1309 when the popes moved to Avignon.This radical move would prove a major influence and boost to the city and the entire area. The impact was artistic as can clearly be seen in Avignon, with a rich italian influence, but also political since most of Vaucluse would not be part of France until 1793.

Avignon is well served logistically with a small airport, a TGV station and a nearby A7 motorway which puts it 2.5 hours from Paris by train and an hour from Marseille. This makes a luxury villa rental near Avignon a very convenient choice if you are looking for comfort and ease of travel.

The impressive fortress of the Palais de Papes is the largest gothic building in the world. It has a palace but also a fortress and sits in the center of the city of Avignon.

Its neighbour, le Rocher des Doms is a popular park overlooking the Rhône valley and a great vantage point from which to observe the region.
