Cute place. A bit squashy for 3 people. Hosts are very helpful. They are available anytime. I like the village environment.
Nous avons passe 3 jours dans ce studio. Tres bien situe a villeneuve. L' appartement correspond aux photos. Marc est tres sympathique et attentionne. Aucun souci durant notre sejour. Nous recommendons fortement cette option pour un sejour dans la region
J'ai passé un trés agréable sejour chez Mr Payret en plein coeur du vieux Villeneuves les (website hidden) 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 ;)
Bonjour Mark, thanks for the warm welcome. The house is very cozy and clean, nice garden for morning coffee and pastries from a local bakery. Thanks to Mark, we learned about the various places of interest, they need to visit to experience the atmosphere of Provence. My friends and I fell in love with this place.Highly recommended!
Marc was very friendly and helpful in trying to make our stay enjoyable.. providing print material for the area, recommending restaurants, stress and grocery shopping
would recommend couples seek out this location and accommodation for wine area and attractions near Avignon
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!
Merci pour votre accueil
petite maison charmante , accueil impec.
confiture idéale ;-)
Martine et Marc = Disponibilité, générosité et sympathie, bref un cocktail pour des vacances réussies
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!
Martine & Marc are fabulous people and hosts - very sympathetic, kind and helpful. They have great recommendations! Villeneuve-lès-Avignion was the right choice for us. The apartment is perfect. It's situated in the heart of Villeneuve, and in the house on the opposite of Martines & Marcs house, connected through the beautiful garden, but with your own private area. It is quiet, save and within walking distance to the historic sights of Villeneuve. Avignon is easy to reach. You will have everything you need in their apartment. If you should need something, you can always ask Martine & Marc. They are so lovely. We highly recommend them. Martine & Marc, thanks a lot for everything, not only for the delicious vine;-)
