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.

The Space

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 flat 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.

  • The apartment is fabulous. The photos are accurate. Dominque, who lives locally, met us at the apartment after we arrived and went the extra mile when we realised we had left a bag in the taxi by phoning and arranging for the taxi to return. Thank you Dominque. A lovely bottle of white wine was also provided which we really enjoyed. For the three of us travelling together, there was plenty of room. The living area is wonderful and we were able to prepare some great meals in the kitchen. Everything about the apartment worked well. We were very close to the Papal Palace, and only a short walk to the Pont d'Avignon. We enjoyed walking around the old village and the markets (Les Halles) and managed to walk to the train station with our bags at the end of our stay (if you have big suitcases and to avoid a rush, allow at least 30 minutes). All in all a very positive experience.

  • Simply our experience at Marie's was impeccable. Marie and her friend Dominique were very kind and supportive the whole time we stayed at this charming place. The apartment itself was very conveniently located and had an unbeatable view of the Pope's Palace. I was traveling with my family and they all fell in love with this apartment from the moment we stepped into it. I highly recommend this apartment to those who are planning on visiting Avignon in the future.

  • A great apartment in the best part of town. We were welcomed by a friend of Marie's who was very helpful and kind. Everything worked out without problems. The apartment is decorated with a lot of love and attention to detail and every object seems to be at the place it needs to be. We felt very at home in Marie's apartment and enjoyed going to bed at night and waking up in the mornings with the golden Madonna on the Notre-Dame des Doms which you can actually see from the master bedroom laying down on the comfortable bed.

  • My husband and I spent 4 nights in Marie's apartment in Avignon in early Oct. When Dominique, a friendly and helpful lady friend of Marie, brought us into the apartment in the afternoon, my first impression was fantastic because the sun shone through the open big windows which made me feel so happy and welcomed. The apartment building itself was beautiful with a lift to the third floor which really was a plus. Marie's apartment had everything we need. We are classical musical lovers and there was a full selection of Mozart CD. I was so impressed by the full facility of the kitchen, that even had olive oil and all the seasonings for us to use. There was also a bottle of wine which we enjoyed very much. The bathroom was modern and big. What I loved the most was the views from every window of every room, that was amazing especially at night. When I lied down in bed, I was still able to see the beautiful view of Palasi de Papes from the bedroom. What an experience! The location of the apartment was very central with plenty of restaurants near by. I also loved the narrow streets to walk back to the apartment every day. Forget to mention that Marie also gave good advice to take a taxi from TGV station with detailed directions from her to show the taxi driver. Overall, It was a super experience to enjoy Avignon like a local. Thanks so much, Marie. We wish you and your family all the very best!

  • Smack in the middle of the historic district (the beautifully illuminated Palais de Papes is framed through the main bedroom window), we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this 3rd floor apartment w/lift. A short walk to all of the main Avignon sites and maybe a 20 minute walk to the train station. Note that the TGV station is quite a bit further away and requires a bus/car/taxi ride.

    The large, well-equipped kitchen looks out on a quiet plaza (though there is some interior construction going on in the building across the way). Enjoyed relaxing in the living room with large windows, sofa, chairs, CD player and free wi-fi.

    Two nice sized bedrooms ( no window shades in the master) and modern, clean bathroom complete the suite.

    Only disappointment regarding the facility is a somewhat dark and dingy main floor landing area which you enter from the front door to get to the lift.

    Our host had everything in order, communicated well with us in leaving instructions and local recommendations..even helped us getting transportation back to the TGV station.

    Overall a great experience as we felt like we had the opportunity to live in Avignon for three days instead of just visiting.

  • We loved our time at Maree's place in Avignon. Such an ancient building but with all mod cons...we baked a French feast from shopping at Les Halles markets. So close to all in the old city, wonderful meandering along lane ways. Dominique welcomed us with such warmth, we felt so at home. Thank you to all.

  • Marie's apartment is fantastic. Right when we came through the door, we felt at home. Everything is nearby, bakery, supermarket, restaurants, and of course, the palais, We decided to park outside the city walls, which meant a 10 minute walk to/from the car, but since Avignon is best explored on foot, this is no problem at all. The apartment itself has everything you need (even a CD collection with all of Mozart's works). I'd stay there again without hesitation on my next trip to Avignon.

  • We had a very nice stay in Marie's place. The flat is perfect if you like big kitchen. It has everything you need to cook. The bathroom is nice and convenient. The entire place is very clean and has a nice view. Location is great.
    Marie and Dominic are very nice and helpful. Whenever we had questions, we always received answers that we needed. We would recommend this place to everyone and sure to come back!

    Thank you very much for everything. We enjoyed so much at your place.
