I stayed for 3 nights with my adult daughter from the 7th of July.I chose to stay in Cavaillon because of the melon festival on the first weekend in July.Unfortunately, this year the festival was the last weekend of June.I found out this out quite late and chose not to change plans.
I would not recommend Cavaillon as a base.The town itself does not have much to offer in terms of sightseeing, although the tourist office is helpful.The Monday market was disappointing with lots of cheap clothes and lacking good quality produce.
Although we didn't really warm to Cavaillon ,we were happy with the Ibis Budget hotel.We had room 112, up one flight of stairs with no lift.The room was larger than the standard Ibis Budget.As well as having a double bed with an overlying single bunk, there was a separate single bed.I paid 59 euros per night, room only.
There is a large Intermarche Supermarket closeby ( within about 100 metres). The lady proprietor was helpful and recommended a good Italian restauirant closeby,The Pet't Cavaillon. I liked her two cats, Mimi and Globule .
During the week this hotel seems to be very popular with tradesmen.When we came back very late, the (secure) carpark was almost full.
