Well that depends on where you’d like to go. Downtown Avignon, about 6 miles from Avignon Airport (AVN-Caumont), can be difficult to drive around. Make life easy by going for something small, fuel-efficient, and simple to operate. Having said that, Avignon is an excellent base to explore some of the sandy shores around Vaucluse. If your getaway is more about tearing down the open road, then you may like something with more trunk space and legroom. What about a full-size car or a standard SUV?
