Information on Avignon and Property Available for Sale through Leapfrog Properties
Located in the Vaucluse department in Provence, known as the great city of the popes, Avignon is a very important city both historically and culturally as it used to be the residence of the popes when not in Rome and attracted vast amounts of wealth, princes and dignitaries. Now an artistic centre in France, this colourful city holds two theatrical festivals during the summer within its tall medieval walls and possesses a variety of impressive buildings, churches and chapels. It gets busy in the summer through all the tourist interest but its array of cafes and restaurants offer its residents plenty of places to relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
Property for Sale in Avignon
Property for sale in Avignon is not cheap, much like the rest of Provence but rental, especially during the summer can be quite lucrative. More value for money and a quieter environment can be found in the villages surrounding Avignon where rustic, typically Provencal villas and farmhouses await the discerning buyer.
