Discover Avignon, its exceptional heritage and its surrounding villages

Visit the emblematic monuments of Avignon, such as the unmissable Palais des Papes (Popes’ Palace), the Pont d’Avignon or the Saint Bénézet bridge, listed by UNESCO, or its many museums and their rich collections, such as the Lambert Collection, the Angladon museum or the Calvet museum… 

Stroll among its irresistible alleys and squares adorned with fountains so typical of Provence and its art of living!

Staying at the Festival Sud Hotel is also an ideal choice during the Avignon Festival: take advantage of the artistic ferment, the shows and the street entertainment during the day, before relaxing in the calm and cool, near the swimming pool and our wooded park.

Do not leave Avignon without having explored the architectural treasures surrounded by beautiful nature in amazing villages: Villeneuve Les Avignon is a must with its Charterhouse, its Fort or its Abbey, as well as the Baux de Provence and the perched villages from the Luberon.

We also advise you to take advantage of your stay to admire the mythical Pont du Gard, the highest Roman aqueduct, listed as a UNESCO heritage site.
