On the outskirts of Avignon, a few minutes from the Palace of the Popes and from the famous Pont St. Bénezet, the Auberge de Cassagne, with its Provencal charm, is ideally situated for those who wish to find the true joy of Provence. Set off to discover Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Les Baux, Gordes, go bargain-hunting at l’Isle sur la Sorgue, visit Le Pont du Gard, stroll round the village of Saint-Rémy de Provence and have many other little jaunts before finally returning to the Auberge de Cassagne.
Today, the outbuildings of the Château de Cassagne (1850) have been transformed and completed by new, low buildings that are in complete harmony with the bastide, at the heart of which nestles a green park. A large, delightful family home, where the welcome is faultless and where, day after day, are practised the arts of friendship and the little things that make up the daily life of great houses. From the moment you enter the Auberge de Cassagne, having left your car in the private car-park, you are seized by the feeling of entering a true home.
Your first introduction is the beautiful reception area, with its yellow-ochre décor, its exposed beams and curtained panelled walls, and its armchairs with predominantly yellow check upholstery. Then you discover the delightful lounges.
Here, the family home ambience reigns. Wax-polished furniture, chests of drawers, tables, settees and chairs covered in Pierre Frey fabrics, old pictures in magnificent gold or wood frames, carpets, Provencal fireplaces with mantelpieces in wood. Nothing is forgotten here, not even the fire that blazes in autumn and winter to create a welcoming atmosphere. This symphony of wood, terra cotta and flowered fabrics produces a feeling of great comfort.

A Beautiful Family Home
A former Provencal farmhouse built in 1850 on the lands of the estate belonging to Cassagne Castle, the present-day Auberge de Cassagne & Spa became a small hotel-restaurant with six rooms in 1969. The hotel grew quickly and the restaurant was awarded a Michelin star in 1985.
Over the years, the hotel grew to include 35 rooms, a gym and sauna in 1999. After some major work, the hotel was awarded its fifth star in 2011.

Known centuries ago as the city of Popes is nowdays a true crossroads in Provence. City of history and city of theater, the fortified city of Avignon will not leave you indifferent. Avignon's architecture is marked by papal history. Going through any of the seven doors of the superbly preserved walls one discovers why it is the city of the Popes. The Palace of the Popes built in the 14th century overlooks a lively square. Nearby are the museums the Petit Palais and Palais du Roure. Not too far away stands the famous Pont d'Avignon.
Don't miss the Antiquaires quarter, the Place de l'Horloge or the Chemin de Ronde which will take you to the Rocher des Doms. From the top of the ramparts you can understand why the site was chosen for a fort: Avignon stands high above the immense plains of the Rhône River and is the strategic point of the whole valley.
