Appartement très agréable, au calme, dans un très beau quartier proche du palais des papes, idéal pour un séjour réussi. Dominique fut très accueillante, à l'écoute, et m'a réservé de délicieux petits-déjeuners, différents chaque jour et très (website hidden) beaucoup apprécié mon séjour et espère revenir bientôt !
Suprised experience, live in the downtown, very convenient go everywhere, have many good restaurants around, and good bread to buy, host prepared strawberry and many yogurts and all the food we need for breakfast.
dominique was waiting for us, and patient with our late arrival. we had difficulty negotiating the streets of avignon with our hire car!. stefan took us to the secure car park they let us use,only a few minutes from the accommodation. they gave us good recommendations about things to do and see in avignon and surrounding areas, as well as places to avoid during our travels in france. that we had booked a "private room" by mistake, instead of an "entire house" was at first a little awkward - i tried to disguise my surprise, but probably unsuccesfully... however, sharing the house with dominque and stefan turned out to be a blessing, and a treasured cultural experience for us. we loved avignon, the pleasure of our hosts company, their dogs fanny and lola ... and their huge home is divine. one storey up, by lift. ample bedroom with everything we needed. and dominque prepared us a delicious breakfast every day! thank youndominque, stefan, fanny and lola
Dominique and Stephon were great. She layed out a beautiful breakfast each morning and was friendly and helpfull in every way. The place was clean and comfortable and very central. We were even given a parking space for the day we had a car. The room was large and light and we felt at home from the start. Highly recommended.

About the Host, Dominique
Je suis une mère de famille nombreuse, j'ai eu 5 enfants qui sont tous en couple et 9 petits enfants. Nous nous réunissons souvent, c'est dire si je cuisine beaucoup. Je suis tres ouverte sur le monde extérieur et curieuse des autres. Je ne travaille plus mais j'ai essentiellement travaillé dans la vente et le commerce. J'aime jouer au golf et je fais beaucoup de vélo car Avignon n est pas pratique pour les voitures. Nous sommes très heureux, mon mari et moi, de nous investir chez Airbnb .
