Luxury Villas In Avignon

Clinging to a bend in the Rhône River in the South of France, Avignon looks and feels like the backdrop of a medieval fairy tale. While it's largely famous for its 14th-century heyday as a papal capital and its even older 12th-century bridge, Avignon has plenty to offer beyond history. Today this walled Provençal town is a youthful place full of atmospheric cafés, fun shops, and numerous hide-and-seek squares ideal for postcard-writing and people-watching.

Climb to its hilltop park for the Avignon's best view, tour the immense palace that was once home to popes, stroll the traffic-free shopping district, lose yourself in the back streets, or just find a shady square to call home.

Avignon has a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and fairly mild winters. The busiest months are June to September, and especially July when the Festival d’Avignon takes place, so book well in advance. Average summer highs range from 26–32°C (79–89ºF) and it can get very hot in July with occasional thunderstorms.

Spring is warm and dry so is a good time for sightseeing, with highs of 20–24°C (67–75ºF). And Autumn temperatures are similar, but rainfalls peaks in September and October.

Winter is fairly dry, with average highs of 11ºC (52ºF) and lows around 2ºC (35ºF). But the Rhone Valley is affected by the Mistral – a cold, dry wind from the North or North-West which is most common in Winter and can send temperatures plummeting.

Avignon is one of France's most fascinating and historic towns and is definitely worth visiting.
