  • We just spent a delightful 6 days and nights in Avignon and a big part of that delight was Caroline's apartment. It's well situated in the center of town, but off the main street. It's within easy walking distance of Les Halles (the large, not to be missed, food market) and Carrefour, a handy market. There are many small restaurants and cafes close by to explore.

    The apartment is spacious with relatively large kitchen, living room (see the picture), bedroom, and bathroom plus separate WC (toilette). The building appears to be very well constructed and we never heard any noise from neighboring apartments.

    Caroline was right there at the front door of the apartment building to greet us cheerfully and help us get settled in. And, when we needed some guidance working the washing machine, she was prompt and helpful.

    When we return to Avignon, we'll certainly try to stay at Caroline's apartment.

  • Nous tenons vraiment à remercier Caroline, car grâce à son merveilleux appartement, nous avons passé un super séjour à Avignon. Nous sommes restés 4 nuits et ça n'a pas été de trop pour découvrir cette région si riche et variée.
    L'appartement est vraiment spacieux, très lumineux et bien équipé : super literie et rangements dans la chambre, cuisine très fonctionnelle (avec lave-vaisselle!), salon bien décoré avec une petite bibliothèque bien garnie pour une location (on y trouve des livres en tous genres, du tourisme, à la poésie en passant par les classiques du piano!), salle de bain très belle également. L'emplacement est idéal, dans une rue très sympa du centre, avec de petits restos et commerçants (animée le jour, plutôt calme la nuit).
    Nous n'avons pas rencontré personnellement Caroline car elle travaillait quand nous sommes arrivés, mais elle s'est bien organisée avec son compagnon Daniel, qui est venu nous ouvrir l'appartement ; ponctuel,arrangeant et sympatique : parfait. Comme l'appartement n'était pas loué le jour après notre départ, Caroline nous a permis de laisser nos valises jusque 15h afin que nous puissions nous balader tranquillement. Enfin, nous avons malencontreusement cassé un abat-jour, et cela n'a pas été un problème pour notre hôte, très compréhensive.
    En bref, nous ne pouvons que recommander cet appartement pour un séjour optimal dans la cité des papes :-)

  • The apartment is very spacious, clean, bright and very well furnished and well equiped.
    The location is great - within walking distance to most places within the old city. Caroline has been very helpful and we highly recommend this apartment.
    Just as a caution to anyone driving in South of France - be careful where you park and what you leave in your car. Our rental car was broken into during daylight, when visiting Gordes and our luggage stolen. Apparently, the police there said its very common.

    Response from Caroline:

    Je suis désolée que votre séjour ait été entaché par le cambriolage de votre automobile. Vous avez raison de prévenir les voyageurs de ne rien laisser dans les voitures. Ce conseil est valable pour la France mais aussi l'Italie, et l'Espagne. Il serait bien que les guides touristiques et les les Offices de Tourisme préviennent les voyageurs afin qu'ils soient plus prudents.

  • Great apartment, at the heart of Avignon, bright and simply furnished. We stayed 11 nights and Caroline even bought a travel bed for our daughter. Highly recommended.

  • Our experience at Caroline's apartment was wonderful. The space is light, modern, clean, and inviting. Caroline met us at the bus station and led us to the apartment, explaining everything we needed to know. My two children (ages 10 and 14) and I were comfortable, inspired to cook by the well laid out kitchen, could enjoy down time in a great setting and felt safe and very relaxed. We were within walking distance to all the sites we were hoping to see including Les Halles, the river, local restaurants and shops, the Tourist Office, bus to TGV, and Papal Palace. We were sad to leave. Thank you Caroline.

  • We stayed here for 5 nights, and really enjoy our vacation in Provence. The apartment is perfect. Very clean with comfortable space and kitchen is fully equipped. Bus stop, train station, restaurants, supermarket are around here. I would recommend Caroline's apartment to everyone. ;D

  • After our thirteen-night stay, we can only add to others’ praise of Caroline’s apartment. Our plan was to enjoy Avignon and its ambience and also to use it as a base for day trips – by train, bus and car – to other towns and villages in Provence. The apartment suited us to a tee. It was spacious, comfortable, and equipped to meet our needs. The bed was very comfortable, and though some have mentioned street noise (which is hard to escape in lively towns with narrow streets), earplugs and the fan in the bedroom took care of that. There were very good restaurants, a boucherie and an epicerie just steps away, and stores to meet our other needs within a five-minute walk. Likewise, the train station, bus station tourist information office and an overnight parking garage were also within a walk of five minutes or so. This apartment looked good on paper, but the reality was even better!

  • Our experience with Caroline was fabulous. She is a fine host and tended to our needs in a most efficient manner. The location was so much better then we had expected. It was conveniently located to just about everything one might desire...definitely in the heart of Avignon. The accommodations were comfortable and up-to-date. We felt so welcome. Here recommendations for restaurants, museums and events were also top notch. We will use airbnb again.

  • Caroline's apartment was really good. In a quiet street only 200 metres from the centre of town. Avignon is a great place to visit and we highly recommend it.

About
J'exerce la profession de professeur mais ma passion va vers la littérature et la poésie. Mon temps libre, je l'utilise en grande partie à faire de l'édition d'oeuvres de poètes contemporains, ainsi qu'à écrire. Je pratique régulièrement le jogging et me teste quelques fois par an en participant à des courses comme des semi-marathons. La voile, dès que le temps le permet, est un moment d'évasion nécessaire que mon compagnon et moi aimons partager sur la Méditerranée.
