Apartment is as charming & wonderful as the host!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week-long stay here. The apartment is charming, comfortable, and very well appointed. The apartment, which looks out onto a beautiful garden, is well located in Avignon. The host was incredibly kind and helpful and gracious. When we return to Avignon, we will definitely stay here again. Merci beaucoup Alain!

Avignon Haven

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is right on the square in front of the the Palais du Papes. We arrived in the middle of a wine festival with more than 20 booths set up from different local vintners offering tastings. A band was playing 70's rock...a fun counterpoint to the ancient edifices and fine French wine! When we entered the apartment it was silent. Even though a huge party was going on just steps away, we could hear none of the merriment. The apartment is beautiful, quiet and well appointed. Windows open onto a lovingly tended garden courtyard graced by a towering tree that helps to shade the rooms from the afternoon sun. The oversized windows and oscillating fans keep the rooms at a comfortable temperature, even in the heat of the day. Alain was a perfect host. He steered us to favorite local restaurants and markets. We loved the location and spent our first night dancing in the square under the stars right in front of "our" place. There is a bike rental just a couple of blocks away and the owners speak perfect English. We enjoyed a day riding to Villeneuve d'Avignon and around the Island. There is a fantastic little distillery on the island that makes pear brandy, among other cordials. It was interesting to see the pears growing inside the bottles on the trees.

Avignon is a fun and vibrant town and the apartment is the perfect haven after a day of sightseeing.

The property was very well placed. Excellent position opposite the palace of the Popes.

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent property, well managed, clean, perfect position and a very friendly and helpful owner and staff. If you have a mobility issue be aware that there are a few sets of stairs to navigate and the second bedroom is of a smallish size. For us ( 2 couples) it was a wonderful place in a marvellous position and we highly recommend it. The owner and staff are wonderful!

Superlative experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Alain's apartment from April 24th to May 2nd, 2017. Our stay was pure joy. I highly recommend it

First there is the location. Situated just 20 meters from the covered stairs leading to the Palais' subterranean public parking, the front door opens onto the Place du Palais, with a picture perfect view of the Palais itself. From there all the venues of Avignon are within an easy walk. In short, there is no better location.

Second, there is the apartment itself. Imagine living in a centuries old building with all of the modern conveniences (except air conditioning which we did not need). Upon entering, a short flight of stairs takes you to a living room/dining room/kitchen that is very large and comfortable. There, television, WIFI and music are yours to use. From there a half flight of stairs takes you to a very modern bathroom with an outstanding shower. A half flight more leads you to two bedrooms and a spacious closet. The master bedroom has a very comfortable queen sized bed. All the rooms have large windows which provide excellent natural light.

If the above were not enough, the apartment comes with access to a private garden shared only with Alain's guests in his adjoining bed and breakfast. This is an oasis after spending a day sightseeing. Moreover, although my wife and I are Michelin diners, I must admit my favorite meal was charcuterie, fromage, bread and rose taken as evening fell on this "jardin".

Lastly, there is Alain. He is the personification of the French word for which there is no adequate English translation "sympathique." Congenial, amiable, warm and accommodating are simply inadequate to describe this exceedingly hospitable gentlemen. I have no doubt that we will return to Avignon. And we will stay here.

Beautiful apartment and garden!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this apartment because it seemed to have all the creature comforts we were looking for; modern shower, comfortable king bed, and washing machine. We got all of that and so much more. It was a unique experience to stay in a home that was built in the 1300s. Nevertheless, it is a fully functioning modern apartment that is conveniently located. The lovely garden is so peaceful even though on the other side of the building is a busy square. Noise was never an issue in the apartment nor the garden. The entrance to the apartment is only feet away from the parking garage entrance. Alain, our host, was so kind and had a bottle of wine, water and coffee for our first day. He gave us suggestions for restaurants and places to visit and made taxi arrangements for us. If we come back to Avignon we will definitely contact Alain for one of his accommodations.

Fabulous apartment - great location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the apartment - location is right across the square from Palace of the Popes, and very convenient to all that the walled city of Avignon has to offer. The proprietor, Alain, is delightful! I would highly recommend this accommodation!
