It may be a bit far from the action— located across the Rhône from Avignon proper, near the A9 highway—but that just means this Relais & Châteaux property, converted from a 14th-century priory, is removed from the hurly-burly of the city. The 33 guest rooms are divided between smaller but atmospheric accommodations in the old priory itself and larger rooms in a modern wing with balconies overlooking the pool. The grounds have been heavily landscaped into that sumptuous Southern French ideal of a garden: a profusion of trees and flowers, pergolas dripping with roses, and ivy climbing over everything.
