Avignon is the magnificent medieval Papal gateway to Provence with a rich history as it was once the capital of Christendom. The campsite is on a vast green island (Barthelasse Island) facing the city with gorgeous views of the Avignon skyline like the Pont d'Avignon and the Palace of the Popes. One is only 5 minutes away from the historical city center by charming ( free) shuttle boat, which makes it easy to tour and then come home to a delightful park-like atmosphere with pool, jacuzzi,kids club restaurant and more.
"Provence is a country to which I am always returning, next week, next year, any day now, as soon as I can get on a train." ~ Elizabeth David
