Montpellier - the university city

Avignon - the papal city
Avignon is the capital of Provence, famous for the St Bénezet bridge from the song "Sur le pont d'Avignon, on y danse,...". During the Middle Ages, it was also the capital of Christianity and the Pope stayed in the Palais des Papes, which is now open for visits. In July, Avignon becomes the theatre capital for three weeks during the Festival d'Avignon. During those three weeks, there are performances all over the city. Every room, every square and even every garage is taken advantage of by established and emerging talent.

The Mediterranean

We are an hour's drive from the Mediterranean Sea, with the following attractions worth visiting:

Aigues-Mortes, the city of Louis IX, called the Saint, is a very charming, completely walled medieval city, situated in the heart of the Camargue. It is well worth a visit!

La Grande Motte
La Grande Motte stands out because of its architecture from the 70s and is ideal for a day on the beach (Le Grand Travers, miles of beach).

Les Saintes-Maries de la Mer
Les Saintes-Maries de la Mer, capital of the lively and traditional Camargue, especially known for the gypsies who come here every year on 26 May to honour their patron saint Sara. This town is a little further away, about one and a half hours.

    Het is al de tweede keer dat wij hier komen en weer was het genieten van de rust en stilte die je hier hebt. Prima uitvalsbasis om te wandelen en uitstappen in de omgeving. We zijn van plan om nog eens terug te gaan om te fietsen. De gîte is prima onderhouden en voorzien van alles wat nodig is. De ontvangst door Patrick en Ilse was heel hartelijk en ze zijn heel behulpzaam als het nodig is. Echt een aanrader 👍
