Avignon itself is well worth visiting - it is the city to which Popes fled the corruption of Rome in the 14th century. They built a palace named 'Le Palais des Papes,' or the Palace of Popes which dominates the city centre and is surrounded by medieval stone ramparts.
Set on the Rhône River, Avignon has an acclaimed bridge - sung about in a traditional French rhyme - Sur le pont d'Avignon. There are lots of lovely restaurants to choose from.
Where to go from Avignon
From Avignon it is very easy to get straight to the Mediterranean coast, just half an hour away.
Or you could head north to the Ardèche, named after the Ardèche River - a river flowing slowly through canyons, on which you can canoe.
Camping in the Ardeche is great for families.
Our agency office is in Eygalières, so if you picked up your campervan rental you would already be on the outskirts of the mountainous Alpilles Regional Nature Park, an incredible area for hiking, biking and horse riding.
Eygalières is close to Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, an old and adorable town where you’ll find all the charm of a typical Provencal way of life.
