A campsite at the gateway to the Cité des Papes (Avignon)
Avignon Parc enjoys one of the most advantageous locations as it is located in the town of Vedène, 12 kilometres from the city centre of Avignon. The Cité des Papes (or Avignon), the prefecture of Vaucluse, is one of the most popular tourist cities in Provence. With its famous bridge stretching part way over the Rhône, the Palais des Papes (Popes’ palace), the historic centre surrounded by ramparts and its Theatre festival (Festival de Théâtre), Avignon is thus a city having a significant historic and cultural heritage.
This establishment has a highly exceptional natural setting, as it is in a 6.5 hectare park, scattered with hundred-year-old pines, that it accommodates holidaymakers. In the proximity of significant tourist attractions in Avignon, such as the Lac de Monteux lake or even the Mont Ventoux mountain, Avignon Parc offers a wide choice of holiday rentals, and spacious and shaded pitches for tents, caravans, converted vans and campers.
Camping on a human scale in the Vaucluse department, Avignon Parc has around hundred plots on which cottages are located. These are able to accommodate, dependent upon their layout, from 2 to 6 persons. The most high-end cottages are located in a superbly laid out Premium district. Moreover, they have pleasant facilities, such as air conditioning, television, and even sunloungers!

A perfect holiday resort for discovering Avignon and its region
By staying on this Avignon campsite, you will have the chance to go off to explore the wonders of Vaucluse and Provence. This Vaucluse department indeed conceals a multitude of treasures. If the old town of Avignon, with in particular the Palais des Papes (the historic Papal palace) has already been tackled, you will also have the chance to discover during your stay in Vedène, the villages of Gordes and the L’Isle sur la Sorgue.
In the heart of the Monts de Vaucluse mountains, Gordes is amongst the most beautiful villages in France. It is by taking its calades (cobblestone streets paved with limestone stones at their edges), that you can best admire its charm and beauty. L’Isle sur la Sorgue, also dubbed “Venise Comtadine” (“the Venice of Provence”), is a village which goes at the pace of its river. Not far from these two villages, Fontaine du Vaucluse is a further must-see of the department. The source of the Sorgue, the most significant resurgence in Europe, is located here.
Amongst the other tourist sites to discover, during a stay at the Avignon Parc campsite, we should mention the ancient remains of Vaison la Romaine, the Mont Ventoux mountain, the ancient Roman amphitheatre in Orange or even the medieval town of Villeneuve lès Avignon. Provence, with its lavender fields and perched villages, offers breathtaking landscapes, that you can discover either on foot or by bike, numerous hiking paths and cycle trails covering the region…
