New, quirky accommodation has just opened this summer in the heart of the famous vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape: Les Cabanes des Grands Cépages. 10 luxurious wooden cabins have been constructed on the turquoise waters of Lac de la Lionne, whether on stilts, floating on the water or semi-troglodyte. Between now and 2019, 10 more cabins will be built.
They are the two new kids on the block in Avignon, although rather large! These double-decker buses, part of the Cars Lieutaud scheme, perfectly complement the tours offered by the Petit Train . With the little tourist train , you can explore the medieval centre, whilst from the open-top deck of the bus, you can admire the ramparts, pay a visit to Villeneuve-les-Avignon, Avignon’s beautiful cousin on the opposing bank, and enjoy stunning views of the town from the other side of the Rhône river.
