If you go to Avignon - and you MUST - a stay with Elvira and Jean will be the treat of your stay. The barge is beautiful as are the host and hostess. You walk across the street and you are only a 5 minute walk to the main square. There ate plenty of great restaurants they can tell you about and lots to see and do. Elvira also presents a fantastic breakfast! Go...enjoy!

Elvira was there waiting for us on the 'doorstep' of her peniche witha warm welcoming smile which made us forget the difficulty we had trying to find the entry to the quai. You'll enjoy being up on deck enjoying a drink whilst overlooking the Rhone & we felt lucky sitting up there eating Elvira's superbly prepared fresh breakfasts with the Rhone as a backdrop.

Unforgettable memory sleeping in a barge! Elvira and John are amazing. We laughed a lot while talking. Elvira and John were very hospitable and helpful. We only had one night but felt like we're home with family. They're warm hearted and truly amazing! I was a little worried about staying in a boat but no needed. It's very stable and just like a normal house inside with a private bath and toilet in each room. Will definitely be back when we visit the area. Highly recommended! Thanks for everything :)

Elvira is the perfect host! She was so generous to pick us up at the TGV and take us to the boat, which is AMAZING! It's incredible that Elvira and her husband spent 10 years renovating this boat. It is beautiful, clean and a wonderful location to visit Avignon. Breakfast was provided every day with a plate of fresh fruit, delicious coffee and a basket of croissants! Our room was wonderful, a good size for two and a larger than expected bathroom for a boat! They even have a swimming pool! Elvira was also so kind to take us to the train station on our spear tire date. It was a lovely stay. Highly recommended.

Elvira and Jean were great hosts, very warm and welcoming. The barge was very comfortable and great sanctuary from the heat, hustle and bustle of town. Breakfasts were a highlight, with an unparalleled view of the Rhône. Would unhesitatingly recommend anybody to stay with Elvira and Jean.

El and her husband are the best airbnb host I'v met for now!!! They are so nice and warmhearted. El drove us from and to the station. Prepared wonderful breakfast. Jonny built this fantastic boat with a swimming pool and chated with us happily. Room is cozy and clean. Really a wounderful experience! Highly recommondated place. I hope next time I go to Avignon and I could live with El again!
