    A haven of peace, with remains of Abbey, terraces on vaults and especially of sunbeds available updates, inviting you to rest and a blissful contemplation of Avignon and its surroundings.

    After the Brocante market we walked through the village up to the Jardins and were rewarded with a great vista of Avignon across the river. The gardens are lovely to walk around and discover the old c...  more »

    If you want to escape you in romantic gardens like 19th century, is where to go. Walks, gardens, pools, headlands, alleys, Greek statues... you can feel that income in the past. Nice folding chairs are also available to enjoy the Sun and relax. Unless you fall on a bus filled with German loud, relaxation guaranteed!

    The Abbey is good, but I prefer the Fort.

    Pure happiness that these gardens hanging between sky and Earth Avignon: far away there are the city with the Rhone, which bathes its walls. In the enchanting setting of an Abbey in ruins, we're out of time. Thanks to a few people, past and present energy, a large part of this former Abbey, however, remains us forcing them to ponder the time that elapses...

    The Abbey of saint-André is belted by the fort of the same name. She takes her story by a Holy-casarie woman who is cod in 586. There is a great architectural evolution between the eras, as you walk among the ruins of an old monastery, 1118 surrounding a cemetery and two churches of 1024. Time passing, we find the trace of louis VIII Philip the fair, and pierre mignard (architect of louis XIV), then it's the renaissance to the French revolution and finally by the historical monument preservation. In addition to traveling in the history, you walk between a Garden Italian and olive tree fields. An ideal place for daydreaming. Allow 1 to 2 hours
