Jean and Elvira were wonderful hosts, on their lovely barge. They went out of their way to help us when we had a minor crisis on our hands and we really felt rejuvenated after staying with them. Wonderful breakfasts (lots of fresh fruit) and a great period style bedroom. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much Tim for your kind words and also for choosing to stay on Aviso, take care ....
We were in late (after ten) and the taxi driver left us at the wrong barge. Elmira came 100 metres to welcome us with a big hug and take us to the correct place. Jean and Elvira were extremely welcoming and helpful. Great conversationalists and Aussie style (dry) humour. Elvira even delivered us to the Avignon station when departing. Wonderful hosts.
It was our pleasure to have you on board and we thank you.......
Let's talk about the Aviso first. It's a great location. Minutes from everything of interest. We really appreciated the unique experience staying on a beautiful peniche (barge). We found the accommodations wonderful. Very comfortable bed. Very clean. Loved the tub in the floor. The fact that Jean and Elvira had built the barge themselves to very high standards was amazing! The breakfast was wonderful and included. Fresh fruit, warm croissants, mega-bowls of coffee all accompanied by Jean's playful, wonderful sense of humour. As hosts Jean and Elvira could not have been better. We found them to be warm and caring and possibly they were the highlight of our trip to Avignon. As an added bonus Jean is an intelligent artist and philosopher and Elvira is kind, generous and warm. We loved staying here. We highly recommend this as a unique experience.
Jerome, you Helen were the most wonderful people we could ever meet & have stay with us so it is you we must thank!!!!
Elvira and Jean are fabulous hosts. We were welcomed with a kangaroo flag and a kiss and a hug. They were also great in the lead up to the stay with communication and helped us use their free parking (about 2 meters from their house boat). We had never stayed on a house boat, so this was a special stay. The boat was clean and filled with art Deco themed ornaments and finishes. We had our own bathroom with a bath (to fully enjoy the bath, head to town to pick up a bath bomb from Lush). We loved hanging out on their boat deck, reading books, drinking local wine and of course the wonderful fresh fruit and hot croissants that Jean and Elvira serve for breakfast. Don't miss out on their extra large coffees served in cute mugs (more like bowls!). The location is fab as well. The boat is moored 5mins walk from Pont du Benezet and Palais du Pape and the old town. Again, Elvira and Jean were amazing hosts. It felt like we were staying with long lost relatives. I would definitely stay there again!
It was our pleasure Sarah & Isaac, we loved every second of your stay, you are both wonderful people and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!!!
Jean et Elvira sont des personnes exceptionnelles et ils vivent dans un bateau à leur image. Nous avons eu de tres interessantes discussions au petit dejeuner et en arrivant. Nous aurions aimé rester plus longtemps pour poursuivre ces belles discussions. L'emplacement est fantastique à deux pas des murailles. Prevoir des boules Quies neanmoins pour ceux qui ont le sommeil leger.
Je recommande chaudement.
Thank you so much for your kind word Emmanuelle, you and Patrick were a pleasure to have on board......
We had a wonderful 3 nights with Jean and Elvira. Their beautiful barge is in a great location, just outside the St. Joseph Port, a short convenient walk to the center of the historic city. The barge itself is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. But the best part is the hospitality-Elvira and Jean are so friendly and fun. We enjoyed their company every morning for breakfast, which was included, and at the end of a day of sightseeing they visited with us on their veranda while we enjoyed our wine and cheese and the fabulous views of the Rhone just off the bow of the barge. Elvira even picked us up and took us back to the TGV station, which was very much appreciated. A unique and memorable way to visit Avignon.
Joan & Dane thank you so much for staying with Jean & I we loved every moment!!!!
Magnifique péniche, décorée avec goût. Accueil chaleureux, Jean et Elvira nous ont reçu comme si nous faisions partis de leur famille. Petits déjeuners sur le pont avec fruits frais et le Rhône rien qu'à nous... un havre de paix aux portes d'Avignon!
Une seule chose à retenir: envie de revenir!!
Very beautiful week-end with beautiful persons!!

Thank you Frank & Raphael we loved you so much.......
I stayed with Jean and his lovely wife for one night (only) and we absolutely loved it. They welcomed us in the friendliest and most hospitable way. The room is very nice and they even put roses in the room as I asked them to do so for my girlfriend. The bathroom was very clean and had everything you need. Very comfortable bed and we slept very deep. In the morning when we woke up the breakfast was already prepared and ready on the deck of the house boat. They gave us a lot of good advice on where to go in town too.
All in all the perfect place if you want to stay in a different place than the usual and boring hotel room. TOP!
We loved having you & you are welcome anytime with open arms & heart, thank YOU!!!!!
even before we arrived they were excellent at commication and helpfulness and when we did arrive they made us feel so at ease and welcome! they were very accomodating and just lovely, the two days we spent felt like we were home. the location is very beautiful and relaxing with an easy walk to the city center and sites. we wish we could have stayed longer :) everything was wonderful
We loved having you and Flora staying with us Grace, thank you so much for the beautiful two days!!!
We cannot say enough complimentary things about Elvira and Jean. We were welcomed with such warmth and given the grand tour of the barge. A great deal of good taste, love (and elbow grease too I believe) has gone in to making the barge what it is today. The cabins are gorgeous and the whole boat was spotless. This is truly a tightly run ship. Elvira whipped up her famous Moules with Nonna's Special (Secret) Sauce which was a real treat. For breakfast we were spoilt with fresh coffee, exotic fruits and warm croissants. Elvira and Jean were the perfect hosts and we hope to see them again in the future.
