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.
Thanks a lot for the wonderful time in the most charming boat in Avignon. We enjoyed French humour, a stunning room with a stylish bathroom attached to it and delicious breakfast. Highly recommended!
Thank you and Melanie Sacha your stay & company were exceptional...xoxoxo
Elvira and Jean were fun people to have as hosts - very welcoming and pleasant, very helpful with directions. The accommodation was very comfortable and quiet in spite of being quite close to traffic. It was close to the centre of town (maybe 10 - 15 minute walk) although to take the shortest route required the navigation of a bit of a maze of streets)
Thank you Peter & Mira....
Elvira and Jean welcomed us to their lovely home, a barge on the Rhone River, with open arms and hearts. From the moment we arrived, we felt right at home. Our room was SO comfortable, large with a very nice bed and we were gently rocked to sleep each night by the magic, almost imperceptible back & forth of the barge.
Breakfast with our hosts was perfect, fresh warm croissants, fruits & coffee /tea - served on deck. But the highlight was being luck enough to help celebrate Elvira's birthday. We joined their boat neighbors in a spectacular feast prepared by Elvira - fresh mussels with pasta, pate, salad and 2 cakes.
Having said all this, the unforgettable part of our visit was, as always, the people. A lively lovely visit with our new amis, whom we'll stay in touch with.
We love you!!!!!xoxoxo
Our night on the Vignes' boat was too delightful for words. Avignon is a charming walled city, totally walkable. The boat is absolutely gorgeous - full of rich wood and elegantly furnished. We had a deep antique clawfoot tub to soak in, and our bed was just heavenly, with a perfectly soft-but-firm mattress and a fluffy nest of soft pillows & comforter.
But the best part of our stay was meeting the comedy team of Jean and Elvira! He is an extremely talented mosaic artist whose work is on display all over the world, and a loveable French curmudgeon. She is a juicy, charming, warm, funny Aussie/Italian. They had us in stitches the whole time we were there, and fed us the most gorgeous breakfast on the deck, with a lovely view of the river.
I wish I could have stayed more than one night and gotten to know them better! I hope I can come back this way for a longer stay soon.
Thank you so much for your kind words, we are so grateful that we met you also and we thank you so so much xoxoxo

This is a lovely, unique place to stay in Avignon. Jean & Elvira have done a marvelous job remodeling their barge. They are outstanding hosts, very welcoming & helpful. Elvira even took us to the bike shop in the morning to start our bike ride. Jean fixed us breakfast including a marvelous cup of French coffee. Highly recommend.
Thank you Shelly & Rick we enjoyed every moment of your stay and what we did came form our heart, we thank you both for staying on Aviso....
