Perfect 50th anniversary getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was the middle week of three weeks hiking in France. It was exactly what we wanted. A quiet little oasis in the heart of Avignon. Well furnished, the perfect size and close to everything. The Palace of the Popes was at the end of the street. Great restaurants, museums and shops were within walking distance. We especially enjoyed walking to the market everyday and preparing our own meals in the well equipped little kitchen. We loved our stay!

Perfect location, comfortable Provencal charm, incredible service

  • 5 of 5

During our stay, we experienced one unusual rainy, "not so sunny" Provence day, but, when we stepped into our "home away from home", it was always sunny and welcoming. The bedroom and kitchen "floor to ceiling" windows opened on to a beautiful courtyard garden view. The owner, Alain, has filled the apartment with the perfect combination of antiques, art and vintage, contemporary touches. We walked everywhere to tour and visit the historical sights, along with restaurants and markets. We were immersed in the ambience of Avignon from the time we entered our apartment to the walk from our quiet cobblestone passageway, rounding the corner to the incredible site of the Palais de Papes.

And we cannot say enough about our gracious host, Alain. He always responded quickly and kindly with our many questions regarding train schedules, provence daily tours, markets, etc.

We strongly recommend his apartment for a visit to Avignon, living in an historic building, beautifully furnished, walking minutes from all that Avignon offers with a wonderful, attentive host....Alain's apartment was exceptional. A gem in Avignon!

Charming is the right word, and for the host as well as the apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is superbly located in an old courtyard building just around the corner from the Palace of the Popes. It is nicely laid out and furnished better than anywhere else we stayed in France. It's the little things that make the difference: soap and tissues in the bathroom, sheets on the bed, suitcase stand in the bedroom (which is large enough to accommodate it easily), nice shopping basket in the kitchen. Alain is a most affable host who has thought carefully about a traveller's wishes: restaurant recommendations (all the ones we tried were excellent), notes on local museums, best shopping streets, the local market, even the number of the local taxi service for departure. We spent a very comfortable week there.

Sweet Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is literallly steps away from the Palace of the Popes! I mean less than 100! We parked in the Palace Parking - easy access from outside the wall for $40 EU for the WHOLE WEEK! Walking out of the parking garage led us right to the tiny, curvy street the apartment is on. There are amazing restaurants just around the corner - literally 146 feet! All that said, the apartment is amazingly quiet and just perfect! It's on the ground floor which makes a big difference. There is a large, comfortable living area. The kitchen is tiny but we did cook breakfast daily since most of France is sleeping when we are up and ready to go! The bedroom was very large from what we are accustomed to in Europe with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was fine with a large shower.

Alain is the property owner and he is delightful. He met us at the apartment and answered all of our questions. He has information printed containing TV channels, good restaurants, etc.

We would go back in a heartbeat and highly recommend this lovely and perfectly located apartment.

Great Stay in Avignon

  • 5 of 5

We really had a great stay in this apartment which is very close to the Palais des Papes (Popes Palace). The landlord, Alain, was very helpful and went out of his way throughout our stay to make our time enjoyable. The apartment is very well situated within walking distance of several restaurants. Our favorite was Le 46 which is right around the corner. There is also a Carrefour market nearby. The visit to the Popes Palace includes an iPad device that guides one through the Palace which is excellent and part of the entry fee. We highly recommend this apartment.

Excellent apartment very close to the heart of historic Avignon

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent a great two night stay at Alain's place. This apartment is a few short steps from the Palais des Papes, the architectural and historical highlight of Avignon. The apartment itself is situated in an historic building, but it is fitted out with all of the conveniences of home. It is a spacious one bedroom, good kitchen, and great dining/living room area. the bathroom has an excellent shower. And, Alain is the consummate host - generous, friendly and knowledgeable.
