Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This is a wonderful place to stay, and the hosts are extraordinarily generous and accommodating. The little town of Villeneuve-lez-Avignon is clean and quiet and beautiful.

  • J'ai passé un trés agréable sejour chez Mr Payret en plein coeur du vieux Villeneuves les Avignon. Ma compagne et moi cherchions un petit havre de paix et nous avons été plus que satisfait de notre séjour. Le petit studio est cosy et est trés bien équipé avec une petite kitchenette fonctionelle, deux canapé lit trés confortable, une petit tv ainsi qu'un accés à inernet. La salle de bain est équipé d'une douche italeinne trés agrébale ;) . Vous logerez dans un quartier trés calme, en plein coeur de la chartreuse, avec une ambiance typique du sud. Des commerces ainsi que moult restaurant sont accesibles à pied. Le fort saint André et à 10 min à pied et je vous recommande la visite du jardins, calme et reposant. De plus Mr Payret a été un hôte chaleureux et discret. Par contre il est interdit de fumer dans le gîte ce qui n'est pas trés génanat finalement. Je vous conseille vivement cette étape dans votre périple dans le sud de la France ;)

  • Marc and Martine were exemplary hosts, and the cottage was a beautiful and unique part of our stay on Villeneuve. Marc especially went out of his way to pick up and drop us off at the train station. Perfect Airbnb experience! Thank you!

  • Impeccable preparation and support by Martine and Marc made our 10th annual stay in Villeneuve-lès-Avignon one of the very best. The efficient apartment seems larger than the dimensions imply, and village stores and shops are just a few pleasant minutes away on foot, as are the excellent sports complex and running/hiking paths.
    The fascinating hosts just couldn't be nicer and more helpful, and any problem that may arise is a problem solved. The only sad thing was leaving!

  • Being at Marc & Martine place was such a pleasure. The place is really cozy, well organised and equiped. They did wait for us even though we arrived really late in the night and were available all the time. The area is just perfect for a long weekend getaway or short holidays. The village is really beautiful and calm and their place is right in the heart of it but stays super calm. Having breakfast from the nearby boulangerie in the garden is an unmissable must. Wish I would live closer!
