A Pleasant Month

  • 4 of 5
We rented this apartment for a month in April of 2012.(the date selector on the review would not go back that far).

Over the course of a month, we had 4 separate groups of friends and family come to see us. Universally, their reaction was amazed excitement. This apartment is gigantic, with tons of space to spread out and get out of each others hair.

The kitchen while small is serviceable. I cooked every evening for our groups and had no trouble at all. Yes, the oven is small but it was perfect for roasts, chickens, etc. Not like you are going to find a turkey to roast in Avignon...

We were extremely happy with the apartment. There is a weekly cleaning service and it was always spotless. The bathrooms were adequate, showers and no tubs.

There were some down sides. Road noise meant we rarely left the huge windows open. Some of the furniture is not terribly comfortable. Personally I would outfit the Grand Salon with deep, comfy couches and chairs for people to unwind in. One of the bedrooms on the main floor isnt really a room, but an alcove with a screen, not the most private accommodation.

Lastly while there is a terrace, we were told to be very quite as we may annoy the neighbor lady. Well, as loud Americans on holiday we rarely used it for fear of causing a row.

I would have no hesitation renting this apartment again in the future. Henri made us a splendid deal for our month and while there are small drawbacks to the property, the advantages of price and location completely outweigh them.

A few things missing

  • 3 of 5
Dear travelers, My husband and I just rented this apartment in Avignon. It is quite large so we invited three friends to join us. Upon arrival you walk into the dingiest, dirtiest hallway you can imagine. Our friends said its looks like Cuba. A bedroom that was featured in the VRBO listing, no longer exists. So I asked the owner if I could turn the 'lounge' (hmm curious word for this room) into a bedroom, since it had a day bed in it. This was fine. The furniture in the 'grand salon' is so uncomfortable you'd be more comfortable sitting in a chair in the waiting room of your dentist's office. And ugly to boot. It is so too bad as parts of the apartment are truly 18th century with all of the molding and high ceilings one would expect. The furniture is very contemporary and right out of a used office furniture store. Towels. . . if you like towel the size of a postage stamp and feeling like sand paper, this rental is for you. We all went out to purchase our own towels. The fuses blew the first day and my husband had two good turns with the electrical box and circuit breaker. Oh dear. . . but wait there is more! Kitchen. There is a double sink and a fridge, a size fitting a larger dollhouse. Oven? No oven (yes there is a very old table top sized electric oven that is so old the handle is missing and it looks as if it could blow up. I asked for pictures of the kitchen before we arrived and they were not sent. I was assured the kitchen had every thing I needed. I happen to enjoy cooking and this became impossible. Four burners. Two you have to turn on a gas jet, and use a spark clicker (the type you start an outdoor barbeque with). You get the picture. Or you can use one of the two electric burners which heat up quickly. The coffee pot was out of the 70's and way too old. The freezer has no ice trays. As we were told by the owners, the French do not use ice so there is no reason for icetrays. The bottom line is this is a (could be grand apartment) but it is so done on the cheap that is doesn't make you feel good. It was clean, but there are no extras and no comfort. We rented the apartment for 10 uncomfortable days. I was a bit embarassed for a couple of my guests. For the amount of money paid for this rental a house in the country with a pool, could have been an excellent alternative. We wouldn't have cared that it was too cold to swim! We were told the neighbor is fussy and horrible. We met her and found her delightful.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry that our apartment did not please our guests. Obviously there has been a misunderstanding, especially a cultural misunderstanding. Netherveless it seems important to us to complete this commentary and provide our readers with another point of view.
Our apartment is on the reception level of a private mansion. We have worked for three years to restore it, but the grand entrance stairway is still in a dilapidated condition. Netherthelessit has some lovely elements especially the very beautiful handrail in wrought iron. The stairway will be restored and will lose its "Cuban" appearance.
The kitchen and the adjoining room present an authentic 1930's decor, and all the equipment is functional: the dishwasher, cooking trays, refrigerator, microwave, and washshing machine. The coffee pot does not date from the 1970's - rather from september 2012. We are guilty of not furnished ice cube trays. We'll buy some immediatly.Last year we rented to a chef from Kansas who came to do an internship in one of Avignon's great restaurants. He was not disappointed. This gentleman and his family plan to come back next year.
All the equipment meets code, including the electric wiring.

In a spirit of fidelity to the 18th century, we chose authentic furniture for this apartment from famous designers such as Florence Knoll, Saarinen, and Mies van der Rohe. Clearly our guestswould have chosen otherwise. We have lodged numerous friends and renters, among them interior decorators from New York. The photos of the apartment permit each to form his own opinion.

In the room with the "Return from Egypt" bed, the walpapershows a panoramic scene by Zuber. The wallpaper in the other rooms was created by an artist who works for several castles in France and abroad. The "day bed " is an authenic "night bed" from the Napoleonic era in the Flight from Egypt style.

Why did our guests not speak of the three comfortable bedrooms, threebathrooms , and the lovely terrace?
The description of our apartment on the website is precise and accurate.
This apartment exquisitely located in the historic center in Avignon, is intended to please people who have an interest in art and history, and who wish to enjoy the restaurants and daily ife of a mid-sized French city, as well as the chance to visit the regions of Provence and Languedoc.
We make a real effort to welcome our guests and help them with their departure.
