Picnic across the river

After a few days in Avignon , it was refreshing to take the free boat ride to Ile de la Barthelasse, rent bikes to ride around the island and have a picnic under the shady trees😊

We tried, we tried very hard, to figure out Avignon's velopop bike hire system, but even the girl in the tourist office said it was difficile if you only wanted a bike for a day, and she recommended Provence Bike Hire instead. We found them easily and decided on a tandem. There was a choice of two, so we asked... More

Free bus ferry to the other side, such a cute thing to do. Would reccommend if you have the time to go there. It has lovely views and is next to the Pont d Avignon.

... on to an island where you can take a walk. The swimming pool is shut. There are good views of the town across the river. There's a café which serves nice ice-cream. You can walk back over the road bridge.

Buy some picnic treats at Les Halles and stroll across the bridge. Find yourself a spot overlooking the river and wonder if you've found Heaven.

Au Bercail restaurant on Ile de la Barthelasse serves a delicious dinner, with the Pont d'Avignon visible from every table.

We stayed in a beautiful hotel/apartment that really made our stay great. Didn't actually see that much of the island/there isn't that much to see. Good views of Avignon and the castles of Villeneuve. Not really much in the way of shops or restaurants.

For some reason, Avignon has never expanded onto the large island facing the western city walls, so cycling from Domaine de Rhodes is through countryside right up to the small ferry that crosses the Rhone to the medieval city walls. Given the bad traffic and urban sprawl in all other directions from the historic city center, we always felt like... More

If you're driving this is a good place to leave your car for free and take free shuttle over bridge to Avignon. Parking is expensive there. Also the island is fun to explore. Restaurants with great views etc
