From Nice, Marseille or Lyon on the motorway A8-A7, take the AVIGNON NORD exit and drive towards AVIGNON along the river on your right hand side and then between the river and the old city wall (build by the Popes in the 14th century) on your left until the gate PORTE DE LA LIGNE.
Go through the gate and turn immediately right. Follow this more and more narrow street and turn right again at the third STOP sign. This is where the street runs into a busy little square with restaurants’ terraces and here is the access to the pedestrian mall where La Mirande is located. To lower the bollards limiting the access please drive right up in front of them and call us through our bell button on the grey column to your left. Please press the button firmly and we will answer your call; wait for the traffic light to turn from red to flashing yellow and drive straight on until you reach our square which we share with the Popes’ Palace. On certain days the pedestrian mall is enlarged and there is a further barrier with guardians to whom you need to explain your destination. They will obviously let you pass in order to reach the hotel.
Coming from anywhere else (TGV train station, …) you can drive around the old city wall clock-wise until you reach the gate PORTE DE LA LIGNE, located where the river comes closest to the city wall. If for some reasons the usual access to La Mirande through gate PORTE DE LA LIGNE is not available (road works, moving, …), please use gate PORTE SAINT LAZARE instead and drive straight on until PLACE CARNOT. Here take the second right, next to the church SAINT PIERRE which will lead you again to the busy little square with restaurants’ terraces where at one corner is the access to the pedestrian precinct.
