The Space

Located on the first floor of a old building, in a quite street, the apartment is ideally located.
"All" is supplied: tv with international channels, wifi, linen, bath towels and bathrobes, table cloth and napkins, cleaning products...
Close from all the historical sites, main museums,shops, restaurants, all can be done walking.
Just 50 meters from the building is the very charming Place des Carmes with a few quiet bars and restaurants and, once a week, a "brocante".(old furniture, frames...)
Avignon itself is a marvelous city but is also a ideal point to explore the area. Those excursions can be done by car but also by bus or train. Those public transports are located just outside the city walls (20mn walking from the apartment).
TGV station is 15mn driving from the city. A shuttle reaches the station from the main post office just inside the city walls.

  • Philippe was an excellent host. He picked us up from the train station, explained everything about the apartment very well and had excellent information about Avignon available. The apartment was spotlessly clean and minutes away from the centre of Avignon and the Papal Palace. I highly recommend this listing.

    Bonjour Berverley et Jackie,
    back from a couple of days in Spain, I've just read your review and wanted to thank you for that. I am pleased to see you enjoyed the area and ..the apartment.
    I hope you are back safe and will keep good souvenirs of this trip.
    Kind regards to both of you,
    Philippe

  • 房东很可爱,人也特别好。他亲自把我从车站接到家,然后还很热情的推荐餐馆。说得一口好英语。最后一天又开车送我去车站,挺让人感动的。

    然后这个公寓比你在图片上看到的更大,床也很大。房间的墙上还涂着荧光粉,特温馨。很干净,位置也很好,所以我在亚维农的话基本上都是用走的。怎么说呢,住在里面就好像自己是当地人一样!

    Bonjour Lincy,
    thank you for your comment. I don't know what it means but at least it is in chinese and your countrymate will read it !
    I hope you are having good time in Nice, then Cannes. As we discussed in the car, if you have time to go to Saint Tropez and/or Cassis... they are nice places to visit. You can have a look on the internet first.
    Best regards,
    Philippe

  • Our host Philippe was more than what we expected. He gave us a wonderful tour of his neighborhood and drove us to the train station when we left. He was an unbelievable host. He also gave us restaurant and sightseeing recommendations which were exceptional.The apt met all our expectations just as the listing (email hidden)e neighborhood was safe to walk at anytime and being near the Pope Palace was a great location. We were able to walk all over town. We would definetly return and stay at Philippe's apt.

  • Philippe was a fantastic host! It was our first time in Provence with our two kids and Philippe kindly met us at the train station to show us where to find the apartment. He even gave us a quick walking tour of the old city! The apartment is in a great location near to a Boulanger, Carrefour, and many restaurants. It was also very close to one of the CityZen shuttle stops that take you to a huge (and free) parking lot just outside the old city ramparts...very convenient. The apartment had all that we needed and everything was very clean and organized.

    Merci beaucoup, Philippe!

  • The location is great! The accommodations spectacular!! And Philippe is wonderful. He even came to the train depot to pick me up AND drove me back on his *lunch hour*!!

    You'll not be lacking for anything @ this, one of the nicest Airbnb places I have visited. I enjoyed every moment of the handsomely appointed, fully stocked apartment. Easily accommodates two -=- or even three (IF one wants to use the sofa as a bed -=- and it's certainly large and comfortable enough!).

    I really can't find fault at all with anything. From plates to bathrobes Philippe has thought of everything. Meticulously maintained. This is worth more stars then the 5 Airbnb permits!!

  • I definitely recommend staying at Philippe's apartment. He was a great host, the apartment is very nice, and it's in a great part of Avignon.

    Philippe picked us up at the train station which was very generous of him. That took away having to take the train or bus into the city and then walking to his flat. Our train was over and hour and a half late due to delays elsewhere on the system but he didn't seem to mind. We had a bit of trouble getting the door unlocked but he took us to a restaurant for drinks to wait while a friend brought another key. He then checked up on us later that evening to make sure we had everything we needed.

    The apartment is well equipped with a nice bedroom and a pullout sofa in the main area. It has a nice dining room table and a good sized kitchen area. The wifi is strong and he has a TV with all the channels (though we didn't use it). The apartment is close to everything and is a good base for exploring.

    Bottom line, Philippe is a great host and this is a great apartment. Stay here!

  • Nous sommes un couple avec deux enfants (2 mois et 3 ans), et nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans la maison de Philippe.
    Tout d'abord, il est venu nous chercher à la gare en voiture et cela a été un poids en moins pour notre organisation. Sur place nous dormions avec le bébé dans la chambre et le plus grand dans le salon (équipé d'un canapé lit), contrairement à ce que nous pensions nous n'étions pas trop serrés.
    L'appartement est fonctionnel et tout est à sa place.
    Situé dans une rue très calme, l'appartement pourrait toutefois être un peu mieux isolé phoniquement.

    Bref, excellent accueil de Philippe, appartement très bien situé dans le coeur d'Avignon, fonctionnel et abordable, l'appartement nous a permis de passer quelques jours très agréables dans cette belle ville.

  • Philippe nous a très chaleureusement accueillis en nous apportant la clef de l'appartement à notre arrivée à la gare et il se proposait même de nous y emmener, mais nous avions un autre programme. Nous nous sommes donc retrouvés le soir pour faire plus ample connaissance. Notre séjour a été très agréable.

  • Philippe's apartment is very clean and within walking distance to the places that you wanted to see in Avignon. His place is perfect for a family of 4 with 2 kids. It has everything that you would need to make your stay comfortable. We parked our car outside the wall and there's a free bus that you can take to bring you back to the parking lot and the apartment. Making the arrangements with Philippe is stress free, too. When we got there, he gave us orientation as to where everything is. I also like the suggested trips that he put up together.

    Highly recommended.
