Campsite information

Camping Ile des Papes

Avignon is situated in the valley where the Rhone lost its was for a while. Between Orange and Avignon the Rhone divides into several streams running down the valley, which has led to a large number of islands and peninsulas being created. Camping Ils des Papes is set on the northern edge of one of these isles, about 6km from the centre of Avignon.

  • This four star campsite offers a large number of good facilities. Among them are two swimming pools, a separate play pool for children and various sports options.
  • In high season there's a bus service from the campsite to Avignon (free of charge if you are staying at least a week).
  • There is also a bus service to the train station, the TGV station and the airport, which is 14km away. Could this be an idea for a city break teamed with a luxury campsite?

The surrounding of Camping Ile des Papes

"Sur le pont d'Avignon, on y danse...." Surely you remember this little song? The 'Pont d'Avignon' is officially named Pont Benezet and is the only bridge not to reach the opposite side of the river. In the 14th century Avignon was the pope's residence for almost 70 years. The pope's palace is still the most important building in the city.
