"Haven of Peace in the Heart of Villeneuve"

Rather like a medieval hamlet, this Carthusian monastery has pleasant gardens for walking in, a chapel decorated with frescoes and a superb church which has been a source of inspiration for many of Avignon's architects. Surrounded by the 40 cells in which the Carthusian monks lived so austerely, the large cloister and its fountain are a reminder that Pope Innocent VI - anxious to escape the superficiality and unrest of the papal court, was responsible for turning this 14th-century summer palace into a monastery. Although the monks are no longer here, artists take up residence each year. As well as training courses, the Chartreuse also holds exhibitions and fine concerts on a regular basis.
