Just a stone’s throw from the spectacular Popes’ Palace and the famous bridge of Avignon (St Bénézet), there’s something magical about our property, blending elegance with tradition, and a touch of the unexpected. Located opposite “Place des Carmes”, the house is built on the ruins of the monastery and the church of the Augustinians of XIII - XIV century and contains many architectural features from that time. A well-preserved chapel from the XIV century constitutes a part of the main hall, the Gothic window made by the “Compagnons du Tour de France”, the stained glass window and the gargoyle are testimony to the exceptionally rich architectural heritage of this building. The imposing bell tower which adjoins the property is a remnant of the Augustinian church and convent which were partially destroyed during the French Revolution.
Since when didn’t you get this exciting feeling to get lost in a city you don’t know? Don’t stay only one or two nights in a hotel before hopping to another place, just stay for a longer period and enjoy being part of the life style in Provence – the best way to discover our region. Throughout the seasons, Avignon is an ideal starting point for discovering the diversity and richness of South of France. You like this idea? You miss it? Just adopt the slow traveler’s attitude. It is also a more sustainable and ecological way to travel and participates to minimize the environmental impact on your itinerary.
