About this listing
Ideally located in the historical district,on a little square, right next to the PALACE OF THE POPES. This is a quiet and very bright apartment housed in a former mansion. You will enjoy a beautiful and rare VIEW over the rooftops and the Palace.
This is a quiet and bright apartment oriented South and West. It is located on the 3rd floor with lift. It is housed in a former mansion in which the oldest part is from the 14th century (part of the blue bedroom and the bathroom) and the most recent part of the mansion is from the 17th century.
We love old houses with lots of character and the apartment matches exactly this. The apartment is comfortable and decorated on a Provencal style. We love to go to antiques to find furnitures and provencal paintings.

We love Marie's beautiful house and really enjoyed our stay. The apartment is spacious, clean and nicely decorated, it's also at The centre of the town. Domid is a lovely lady who greeted us and dropped by to say good bye. However it's better to shut the windows during night because the truck for the rubbish collection is very noises in the early morning. We highly recommended Marie's apartment if you will come to Avignon for a trip.
We had a wonderful family holiday in Avignon at Marie's lovely apartment. The apartment is spacious, has a well appointed kitchen, magnificent views and in easy walking distance to all sites. Communication with Marie is easy and prompt. We thoroughly recommend Marie's apartment.
Marie's apartment is spacious with great views! It's in the center of Avignon, really close to pope's palace. We enjoyed our stay!
I was met by the most charming woman, Dominique. She was extremely helpful and rode with us to the parking at Palais des Papes. We later learned that Parking des Halles, was closer and just as secure, but not quite as "nice".
The flat was more than we could have hoped for. The view from the master bedroom is just as advertised and the location is perfect! The flat itself has updated appliances, kitchen, and bathroom, while still keeping the charm of old Avignon.
Marie and Dominique were very helpful on providing us details about the apartment and Avignon.
We couldn't have asked for a better place. A true gem!
Great apartment with a kitchen for fun cooking with items from the Les Halles market just one block away. Excellent location. We experienced a long heat wave with high of 95 degrees and yet the apartment stayed cool and had a great cross breeze. Even in the heat wave, it was possible to stay cool while cooking as the convection oven was very efficient. Marie and Dominique, thank you for all of your help during our stay.
