We have just enjoyed a truly memorable afternoon visiting Fort Saint Andre and the village itself. We are staying in Avignon and, Having admired the view of Villanueve les Avignon from across the Rhone, we investigated taking a bus over to the village, however, perhaps because it's Sunday, we couldn't seem to quite catch on to when to expect a bus to come along, so decided to take the easy option and called for a taxi which cost about 13 EU each way. You could walk each way depending on time and inclination!!! The Fort is a must see and apparently free on Sundays and surprisingly, doesn't seem to be justly promoted. It is an uphill walk up to the fort and not wheel chair or stroller friendly once there
After spending 2 or 3 hours of investigating,We enjoyed the surprise bonus of wandering into a little square where we enjoyed a drink while listening to a live musician and a very smooth vocalist singing easy-listening Frank Sinatra to an appreciative Sunday afternoon audience of no more than about 25 people. What a treat.
