luxury guide

Avignon, the capital of Medieval Christianity and the provenance of seven French popes, maintains effortlessly its grandeur and status. The city boasts a prestigious provincial heritage including the majestic papal palace, handsome monuments, an array of breathtaking churches and the Saint Bénezet bridge (or Pont d’Avignon as it is called in the famous children’s’ song) . A cultural center at the edge of new technologies, the city distinguishes itself from other French cities with its vivacious culture, especially in July during the Festival of Avignon when the entire city is transformed into an open stage. At just 2 hours and 40 minutes from Paris and 30 minutes from Marseilles by high speed rail, Avignon is also the perfect destination for discovering provincial cuisine and Côtes du Rhône wine, chic boutiques and an ‘art de vivre’ typical of the South of France. The luxury real estate market is concentrated in the central area inside the city’s medieval walls. The west is the more popular zone, alluring high-end buyers seduced by prestigious apartments in palaces from the 1700s and 1800s, as wells as, more recently, the 1980s. Who could resist the charm of living near the Papal Palace? The eastern part is also well sought after however, particularly for investments as several attractive districts offer prestigious projects developing quickly. Just outside of the Old city walls, lovers of picturesque properties can buy a beautiful 'bourgeoise' estate from the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. Finally, the small towns around Avignon boast prestigious properties and chateaux immersed in a lush green environment, ideal for those seeking a more serene property and peace of mind.
