I picked Marc and Martine's place because of its central location as well as its appearance. I was not disappointed. The house was small but very tidy and well kept. My sister joined me last minute on my trip and they were very accommodating and made sure she had everything she needed. One of the great things in the apartment was the small kitchenette. It allowed for us to eat on a rather tight budget. Marc was the one who welcomed us and got us situated. He recommended a great place to eat right around the corner and made sure we got in without havening to wait. The house was comfortable and the yard was beautiful as was the town in which it is location. I really appreciated being very close to Avignon but not in the middle of the city. Marc even took some time to discuss wine with me one evening which I really enjoyed. I will be back for sure on my next trio to the area!
We love Martine, Marc and the fantastic little house!!! The house is so great, even better than these nice pictures, there are everything you need! It's beautiful, clean, comfortable. Martine and Marc always gave us so much help, they are very friendly and kindly. We wish that we could stay more time there!
A warm and welcoming host in every regard. He really went out of his way to make us feel welcome.
We had a wonderful time at Marc and Martine's apartment.
The location was unbeatable, as part of a medieval monastery complex, close to Avignon and central to all the places we wanted to see. It was spotless clean and well supplied.
Marc and Martine were fantastic hosts; we can highly recommend this place to anyone, it was brilliant.
Thank you Ana for your kind comment and specially the one as regards a missing hairdrier. With our warm Provençal sun we thought sincerely that it was not useful..., but from now on, thanks to Ana, there is a hairdrier in their small home of Villeneuve-les-Avignon !
The apartment had everything we could wish for. Our hosts were sooooo obliging and kind, it really made us feel most welcome. We hope they visit in the future so we can reciprocate their hospitality.
Martine and Marc are absolute helpful and friendly people.
The apartment is clean and the garden is very tasty.
We did enjoy our stay.
Merci beaucoup Martine, merci beaucoup Marc.
