Chef's secret

The subtle art of Friday aioli, daube simmered to perfection, a tian of vegetables nicely browned in the oven, bass or red mullet cooked just right, eggplant caviar and roasted peppers perfectly executed… Can you already smell the aromas behind your screen? That’s normal: in Provence, sun-drenched flavors speak to us of sharing and terroir. And the chefs who welcome you to the Avignon region are never short of ideas to help you discover their know-how and that of local producers, whom they are particularly fond of.

A red star and a green star, La Mirande

Florent Pietravalle, chef of the gastronomic restaurant at the Hôtel la Mirande (5*****) since 2016, has been awarded both a red and a green star in the Michelin guide to fine dining in Avignon and Provence. Creative, singular and curious, he tests and experiments, driven by a resolutely innovative, committed and eco-responsible approach.

Honey from the Popes' Palace

Beehives in the city! After two years on the rooftops of the Palais des Papes, the beehives will take up residence on the Rocher des Doms in April 2021. Six beehives placed under the aegis of Avignon Tourisme and entrusted to the care of the Avignon-based association “Car elles butinent” have already produced several dozen kilos of the precious nectar, stamped “miel du Palais”. These bees in the city are a reminder of the importance of preserving our rich biodiversity wherever possible.
