La Ferme

Stayed at La Ferme here for a night, didn't realize it was an Island, but fairly easy to locate in the dark!

Excellent spot to spend a summer holiday! Perfect to cycle around, relax, and also very well located as a strategic point to visit Provence, as the Avignon station (just across the river) connects you to all the villages and towns in the region. Also, from Avignon TGV you can travel to Paris and even London directly.

By making a straw to the Island you will have a most amazing view of the city. On the Island there are 2 vey good restaurants, very tranquille out of town and with a parking.

Sole reason for my visit was to go to the Lido but it is closed for refurbishment until 2016, if like me you wanted a swim, avoid a wasted journey. I am sure there are plenty of other things to do on the Ile so don't let this review put you off visiting

This island in the middle of Rhone River is a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. Avignon is beautiful and a great place to visit and learn about the medieval location of the Papacy during its sojourn from Rome.

This is a great place for cycling. Lots of picturesque small roads, some barely wide enough for a small car. The countryside is peaceful, beautiful and just a 5 minute bike ride over the bridge from the Avignon city center. My only complaint is the main road tends to have a mild accumulation of gravel in the bike lane.

The island is close to Avignon but is still a quiet countryside location. Great for walks or bike rides.

This is the quieter side of Avignon with good views of the city and the bridge. Take the free ferry across the river and walk along the banks of the river for a refreshing break from absorbing all the culture of times gone by.
