About The Experience
Experience the charms of life in a historic French town at this restored, semi-detached house nestled in the heart of Villeneuve les Avignon, which is close to Avignon. Once the residence of cardinals, the property is close to culture sites, markets, shops and superb restaurants. The town is well known for its local market on Thursdays and its antique market on Saturdays.
Location Description

The village of Villeneuve les Avignon overlooks the Rhône River. Guests can walk to the village on a small path shared with cars. The village has medieval monuments such as the Philippe Lebel tower and the Prieuré cloister, as well as renowned restaurants. Avignon, also known as the popes’ city, is a 5-minute drive away. The town’s formidable Popes’ Palace overlooks the Rhône River plain and the encircled city. Between Villeneuve and Avignon, on the Rhône River, is the island of Barthelasse, which was a refuge for outlaws and deserters in past centuries. Of course, Avignon is also famous for its summer theater festival. The closest highway is the A9, exit Remoulins, a 15-minute drive away. This highway goes from the Spanish border to Orange, with connections for all major cities of southeastern France. The closest train station is at Avignon, which is served by the TGV (Train Grande Vitesse) that goes to Paris in 2 hours and 40 minutes.
