Perfect location in Avignon. The location next to the Palace of the Popes made getting around town so easy. Avignon is also a great location to be, as the other day trip cities are not far away so you can easily come and go and still see all the area has to offer. The house is even better than the pictures. Could not ask for a better home away from home. Christine welcomed us and made sure we were ready for our stay. As in other reviews, if you are coming in from across the pond that day, book a reservation at the local restaurant in the square. Great food and setting and made the first night more relaxing since we were tired from the flight over. The gallery in the square also is very nice. The owners are very friendly and have a wide variety of art to see. They also have some good restaurant suggestions! The house itself is a gem in the city....we would definitely book this again and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Avignon. Thank you for sharing this wonderful home!
We spent three nights at the lovely Aubanel Maison last week. Very large apartment that is beautifully updated yet maintains so much of the old world charm. Very well appointed though we ate out during our stay there. The inner courtyard and steps leading up to the apartment were beautiful.
Maison Aubanel is located STEPS from the famous Palais des Papes, whose towers you can see from the street in front of the home. We had a little trouble finding the apartment because the street it is on (St. Pierre) is mostly pedestrian and we had to approach from a narrow opening off of a one way street. Once we unloaded our massive amount of luggage (our fault) we parked at a lot just a few minutes walking distance from the house (and near a wonderful food hall called Les Halles.) We walked everywhere and only needed our car when we traveled to Gordes.
Upon leaving, we were able to pull over on the main street and load our luggage. A minor inconvenience for a wonderful place to stay and worth it. Beds were comfortable and we slept with the large windows open and found it to be quiet. Fans in each bedroom kept things cool.
Christine was very kind and welcomed us. Though she doesn't speak English well, we managed to communicate with my basic knowledge of French. Laurence was available from Paris to answer questions about directions. Plenty of restaurants in the area but I recommend getting reservations for dinner as the restaurants are small and many aren't open at night. There is a lovely restaurant in front of the house that is always busy -L'Epicerie. If you are arriving later in the day I recommend reserving here in advance so you aren't wandering around for a place to eat your first night. It was a great value for a family of four and very nice to have a true "home" to return to each evening.
Other restaurant recommendations (get reservations) are Chez Mimmo for delicious Italian food and La Fourchette-wonderful service and food.
We used Romain Gouvernet from Wine and Provence for a tour of the Chateauneuf de Pape region and he was excellent.
Thank you for a lovely stay.
Maison Theodore Aubanel, once the home of the famous Provencale poet Theodore Aubanel was also once the printing and publishing house founded by his grandfather. Today few print and publishing artifacts remain; two large print machines greet one upon entry to the courtyard behind two magnificently heavy solid doors. Maison Aubanel sits quietly in the shadows of The Palais du Papes, and I am inspired by gothic structure all around and reminded of the incredible life Avignon has seen through the Middle Ages and its love of the Arts. I watch the movement of the Sun as she casts her daily shadows upon the looming fortress, the towering tour de la campagne beyond my window, and I imagine what life must have been like for the Papacy. Aubanel is a quiet thinking ground, tucked away behind Place St Pierre, elegant and refined with all that one needs. It is surrounded by the best restaurants from La Mirande to L'Epicerie and a short walk to Les Halle's market on Saturday mornings where the best local produce is fought over by top chefs in the region. I have everything i will ever need here at Aubanel, and once again I take my pen and sit to write about all that which must not be forgotten. Maison Aubanel is unforgettable too, and Laurence and Christine the housekeeper we so welcoming and are two of the nicest people you will ever meet, ready to help you in any way and make you feel at home in your own private fortress. I cannot wait to return. Magnifique!

Famille Genevier PARIS
Très bien situé, appartement spacieux, calme et très propre.
Un mélange d’ancien et de nouveau.
Et merci à Christine pour son accueil !
Superbe appartement, chargé d'histoire, mais décoré avec un goût tout à fait frais et contemporain. Fonctionnel et très calme il est pourtant à deux pas de tout ce qu'il y a à voir. Christine, la dame qui nous a accueillis, est très efficace et disponible. Nous regrettons juste de n'être pas restés plus longtemps.
