Touring Châteauneuf-du-Pape: Where to Go, Eat and Drink

Hôtel d’ Europe

This luxurious Avignon landmark once catered to Napoleon, and it’s still the area’s best place to stay. Doubles from $259; 14 Place Crillon, Avignon; 011-33-4-90-14-76-76 or heurope.com.

It’s a bit of a drive (45 minutes) from Avignon, but this restaurant has a huge wine list with top Châteauneuf producers and Burgundies at reasonable prices. RN7, Mondragon; 011-33-4-90-40-82-54 or beaugraviere.com.
