Villas for rent in the Avignon Area
Located at the confluence of the Rhone and Durance rivers, Avignon, known by the nursery song ‘Sur le Pont d’Avignon’, (the real life Pont Saint Benezet), is probably more famous for the imposing Palais des Papes built when the papacy moved to Avignon in the 14 century. Strategically situated high above the River Rhône and encircled by medieval ramparts, Avignon's walled town is a warren of cobbled streets, lantern-lit passageways and architectural treasures. Bathed in the brilliant light of Provence, this former papal enclave has long attracted artists as well as those in search of cultural entertainment. Every summer Avignon hosts the Festival of the Performing Arts at venues throughout the city followed by the annual jazz festival in August. An area dominated by the Rhone valley, this is serious wine growing country with one of the most famous wine regions nearby, Châteauneuf-du-Pape considered by many to be one of the finest of the Côtes-du-Rhône appellations.
