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.

Marie's apartment is beautiful. Wonderful view, incredibly relaxing and welcoming! Conveniently located--although the street appears residential it's very close to many delicious restaurants and shops. Her friend Dominique even welcomed us with a bottle of wine after learning we were on our honeymoon. We had a wonderful stay in Avignon!
Wonderful, wonderful apartment in an old building in the centre of Avignon. So light and spacious. We loved the proximity to the Palace des Papes, but also to the Carrefours for supplies and the many restaurants - thanks for the recommendations!! the hosting was efficient and thorough, in spite of our mistake in arrival time - many thanks for your helpfulness and consideration! The apartment was super clean and extremely well equipped, the beds comfortable and the bathroom and shower efficient. We loved the Complete Mozart CDs for quiet evening comtemplation of the floodlight Palais. All aspects of our stay with you were wonderful. We would love to visit again, when circumstances permit. Thank you, thank you !!!
We stayed at Heart of Avignon for six nights. On arrival we were greeted by Nassera who kindly showed us Marie's 3rd floor apartment which comes complete with a lift. We were immediately impressed. The breeze that floated down the corridor from the 3.5 meter high double windows was refreshing and the view over the ancient rooftops of Avignon breathtaking.
The apartment had everything we required. A large living/kitchen/dining room decorated comfortably and cleverly with period furniture; a comfortable master bedroom with a stunning view of the Popes Palace, a second bedroom with two single beds and a sizable bathroom with a great shower. The apartment also includes a laundry with washer/dryer. The facilities were true to the airbnb description.
The location is perfect. Avigon is at your doorstep. A five minute walk to the Popes Palace and about 10 minutes to Pont D'Avignon. Other attractions are within easy reach by foot.
Marie was a pleasure to communicate with via e-mail and It was nice to meet Naserra. We hope to return one day.
If you are considering visiting the intriguing village of Avignon do yourself a favourite and stay at Marie's Heart of Avignon.
Ein perfekter Ausgangspunkt für Avignon und die Provence. Die Wohnung ist sehr groß und liebevoll eingerichtet. WiFi, Spülmaschine, modernes Bad, Aufzug, alles wunderbar. Gastgeberin reagiert sehr schnell. Abwicklung problemlos. Vielen Dank
My wife and I spent 7 days at Marie's lovely apartment in Avignon, using it as a base for exploring the Provence region of France. We were met personally by the delightful Dominique, Marie's representative in Avignon. The apartment was spotless, the location perfect, central but quiet and the amenities all that would be needed for a week's vacation. There were a couple of issues that did occur doing our stay that were dealt with expeditiously by the indomitable Dominique, who was also extremely helpful in introducing us to Avignon and its surroundings. When the problems did occur, we also heard immediately from Marie in Paris, apologising for any inconvenience and ensuring that it was fixed quickly. The concern was genuine. Avignon is a perfect location for exploring Provence without a car, given its two railway stations, central location and excellent tour operators. Avignon itself is charming, neatly combining the old world and the new. We will be back to the region at some time in the future, and would hope to enjoy Marie/Dominique's hospitality again.
Marie's friend Dominique was there to meet us at the door when our taxi pulled up. Dominique shoes is around the apartment and have is some good tips on where to eat and shop. Marie's apartment is exactly as described on the website and is ideally located to enjoy the sites and delights of Avignon. Bev and I thoroughly enjoyed out all to short stay in Marie's lovely apartment. We have no reservations about recommending it to others.
The host's listing was very accurate. It was a lovely light filled apartment in a very convenient location, close to the Palais des Papes, the market etc. We really enjoyed our stay there and wished we had a few more days. Unfortunately we did not get to meet our host, Marie, but her friend, Dominique, was very helpful.

We decorated the apartment on a provencal style going to antiques to find old furnitures and paintings.
