The southern part of the Rhône Valley, which stretches from Bollène down to Avignon, covers along its two banks the departments of the Vaucluse and the Gard. Many sightseeing routes let you discover its picturesque villages and its vineyards known around the world: Châteauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, Beaumes de Venise, Vacqueyras, Tavel, Lirac... all blessed by the sun of Provence. In Avignon and Orange, Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance still shine in the architecture, the museums and the arts and create a magnificent setting for the festivals that enliven the seasons.
On the northeastern edge of the Occitanie region, facing Provence, Laudun-l'Ardoise is a town in the department of the Gard, 27 kilometres from Avignon.
