Enjoy some of France's true nature at Ile de la Barthelasse, an island in the river Rhone. On one of the largest European river islands, you can try to spot hawks, kites, gulls, ducks, herons, beavers, and rabbits. Walk through orchards full of cherries, apricots, apples, and peaches. To get here, take one of many ferries (or cross the dams) from the main city. Ile de la Barthelasse is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Avignon Edition.

  • It looks beautiful from the Rochet de Don Park. It becomes feeling on the opposite bank across the Rhone River. From the park, you can see the St.Andre fortress on the island of Balras. The tower and the walls are well preserved.

  • I go occasionally to the island of Barthelasse in order to run along the Rhone. The place is quiet in winter, few people wander on the many trails that the island has. View of the Pont d'Avignon also.
