Many of Gard’s highlights can be found within easy reach of Tavel, so it is a great place to base yourself while you are in town. Two attractions that should be on every visitor’s to-do list is the wonderful Chartreuse du Val de Benediction and the ever-popular Eglise Collegiale Notre-Dame. Two other worthy points of interest close by Tavel are Fort St-Andre and the Tour Philippe le Bel.
Savvy travelers in Tavel, looking for something a little out of the ordinary, should head to the cultural attractions nearby. Walk through the exhibits and enjoy the quiet atmosphere of Musee Calvet in Avignon, the Musee du Petit Palais and Collection Lambert.
Those who are traveling without kids will love spending some time at the Chateau de la Gardine in Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Chateau Fortia.
After a day taking in the sights around Tavel, get a good nights sleep in one of the area’s popular bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments. The Avignon Grand Hotel, the Novotel Avignon Centre and the Hotel Le Cloitre St Louis, Avignon are just some of the many great places to stay around here.
