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 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.

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.
We much appreciated to stay with our son in Marie's nice flat - a perfect place to enjoy holidays in Avignon. This appartment is really close to the Palais des Papes and other sights, and communication with Marie was as good as it can be. Thanks!
We loved staying in this apartment because it has so much character and it feels like you are genuinely part of the town. The views over the rooftops are some of the best we have had from any apartment. We loved cooking and eating in the peaceful open kitchen with the windows open to the evening. Wifi worked very well. The apartment was very comfortable and a convenient walk to everything. The small touches were very much appreciated - real coffee, olive oil and condiments, a bottle of wine, extra towels, etc. I would highly recommend this apartment for a stay of any length in Avignon. I hope to return one day.
Marie has a very charming apartment which is only 5 minutes' walk from the city square. Everything is as advertised and I had no problems with the stay. I did wish there was a fan in the bedrooms though, as it got quite hot at night. I would stay there again.
This is a great apartment in a very picturesque french neighborhood. The views are really amazing. For me, it was a chance to really feel what it is like to live in Avignon. Very quiet, spacious and well appointed for living and cooking.
I think one of the many great strengths of this apartment is the lady who manages it, Dominique. She went out of her way to help me with a telephone problem I was having and provided great advice for enjoying Avignon.
I find the views here to be one of the enduring aspects of my vacation across all of europe. Really spectacular.
I would return here in a heart beat and have recommended it to my friends
