Our stay was more magical and memorable than we could have imagined given the perfect accommodations at Les Anges 2 and the warm welcome and valuable guidance we received by its charming owner, Stephan. The studio itself is perfectly situated on a picturesque cobble stone residential street, a short, easy walk to all that Avignon has to offer including the Palais des Papes (a must visit), the opera house and the varied exquisite dining and shopping. The studio is warmly welcoming, meticulously decorated and exuding charm - exposed beams, high ceilings, beautiful marble floors and modern amenities abound (including a great coffee machine with delicious coffee and teas). Stephan could not have been more accommodating from picking us up at the train station, to chilled champagne in the fridge with chocolates. He has a wealth of information that you cannot get from travel books and this made our visit particularly exquisite especially the operetta he recommended and tickets he obtained for us. We were very lucky to learn that he also offers a service to the airport (in our case Marseille) in the comfort of his elegant car and his company. The perfect end to a most memorable 4 days. Thank you Stephan! I would give you you a 5+ review if I could.

The area around the apartment is worth investigating and a meal at the restaurant Au Jardin des Carmes is highly recommended and is a drink with the locals at Les Gambrinius which serves a vast selection of Belgian Beer. One absolutely must is a visit to the market at Marche les Halles. This is the best place to get your food to take back to the apartment to make brilliantly fresh salads. The apartment is on the ground floor, is clear and well decorated with a lovely courtyard area and everything you could need to make your stay enjoyable. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to stay in Avignon.

The pool is beautiful, perfect for a the number of guests. Everything is clean and well designed. We enjoyed the very well appointed summer kitchen. We used the grill for some family meals and it was excellent. The whole family would love to come again!
