Villas and Holiday Rentals in Avignon

Avignon is a classic Provencal holiday destination; it gets the vote of history buffs, foodies, wine-lovers and those who want an outdoors adventure. There is much to do here from the essential visit to the Palais des Papes, to gourmet tours, a spin down the Rhone or hiking or biking in the glorious surrounding countryside. The accommodation options are varied too, with everything from simple guesthouses for B&B to luxury five star establishments. We also think that self-catering is a great option especially for the more independent-minded traveller who really wants to get under the skin of the city. We've put together a list of what we think are the best holiday rental providers in the area; they cater to all tastes and budgets with everything from city centre studios to villas and manors outside town with sprawling grounds and stunning pools!
