Avignon, the heart of Provence
Weekend in Avignon
Situated right in the center of Avignon, the Hotel d'Europe makes it easy for guests to visit the famous sights of the City of Popes.
These include the famous Pont d'Avignon Saint-Bénezet, the architectural treasures of the old town, but also the towns and villages that are typical of the region: Les Baux de Provence, Orange, Arles, and Nîmes, the medieval villages of Luberon.
Discovering Provence ...
The Hotel d'Europe enables guests to discover the charm of Provence, its flavors, scents and colors. As one season follows another, these exclusive tours have the power to surprise travelers in search of authenticity.
We offer four major themes through which to enjoy the charms of Provence:
The vineyards: on leaving the hotel and the City of the Popes to the north, the charming villages of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Vaqueyras or Beaumes-de-Venise, at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, act like stepping-stones to your enjoyment of the wines from the southern Rhône vineyards. Next, you’ll be sure not to miss going to Orange, which has the best-preserved Roman theater in the world.
The Luberon: to the east of the hotel and the Palais des Papes, where you will be charmed by the beauty of the landscape, with the red and yellow ocher colored cliffs of the Roussillon. After leaving Gordes, an ancient fortress perched above the Apt Valley, you will discover the Cistercian abbey of Sénanque, in its lavender casket.
The Camargue: after admiring the medieval grandeur of the Palace of the Popes and the Roman grandeur of the Pont du Gard, you can continue on your way to the Camargue, a paradise of flamingos and wild bulls, and finish your journey with a visit of the port of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer.
The Alpilles: at Saint-Rémy and Arles you will discover the colors of Provence, so dear to Vincent van Gogh. From the site of Les Baux, which rises between the Val d'Enfer and the Vallon de la Fontaine, a magnificent prospect awaits you.
Mika, our hostess, offers you a full day excursion, including, notably, a visit to the region’s most beautiful villages.
