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.
** In July, during the theater festival, we rent the apartment on a weekly basis, from saturday to saturday.**
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.
