It is a beautiful apartment in a perfect location for enjoying Avignon. Nicolas was a delightful host who made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay, even with little touches like lending us his phone charger which we really appreciated. The location is very good with a free shuttle bus into the centre of Avignon and a well stocked supermarket just down the road...The apartment is bright modern, very clean and is equipped with something for everything such as books, DVD's and leaflets on things to do in Avignon. We would definitely recommend staying here and we will be back next year! David & Karen

The apartment is really lovely, full of delightful touches and filled with a wonderful fragrance. The kitchen is well equipped, the garden area peaceful and a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine after a busy day exploring. The shower is excellent, all in all a great place to stay. We travelled by train and it is about a 10 to 15 minute easy stroll into Avignon itself, the view just round the corner on the way to Avignon is stunning across the river to Avignon, the bridge and the Palais de Papes. Zoe the host is brilliant, we arrived late afternoon and as we had come by train she kindly offered to take us to the supermarket which was so kind and she also gave us a lift to the station too. I can honestly recommend this wonderful apartment and fab host. Deposit all returned promptly too. Super!
