The Apple of Avignon

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (mid 60's) spent one week in October at Francis's flat in the heart

of Avignon. His place was generous in size, clean and comfortable and made it the

perfect spot to explore Avignon and the surrounding small villages and open markets in

Provence. Francis also included a very detailed booklet for each one of his guests, that

included just about as much information on Provence as did Rick Steeves travel guide. So we went with Francis's booklet and every recommendation was fabulous.

The only thing a person should be concerned about, if they are watching their weight, is

this 'to die for' patisserie that is located about 100 feet from his place. Our ritual was each

morning we began the day with coffee and a plate of French pastries....what a way to live!!

We both highly recommend his flat, and we will definitely be doing another trip this way and will stay at his place much longer....one week was just not enough.

Exceptional Avignon Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 glorious days in Avignon using Francis' apartment as our home base! The apartment was just

what we needed. It was close to everything; an easy walk to all we wanted to see. We walked to and from the train station several times, always enjoying the Avignon promenade. There were great restaurants, bakeries, delis, and grocery stores close by, as well. Francis was the perfect host. We met at a central location and he walked us to the apartment, pointing out all the neighborhood spots of interests. The apartment was just right for my husband and me. Francis even has a guide book he has developed with recommended restaurants and sights. We tried several on his list and they were exceptional. We were just sorry we could not try all the recommendations for food and sights. We will definitely rent this apartment again when we return to Avignon. We read all the reviews before booking this apartment. You can believe all the good things that are said. Thank you, Francis, for a delightful stay!

Perfect location for exploring Avignon

  • 5 of 5

This apartment suited us perfectly for a two-week stay in June. The best thing about it was its location, nearly adjacent to Palais des Papes so central to everything in Avignon! It was clean, comfortable, welcoming and had everything we needed--microwave, refrigerator, cooktop, free WiFi. Francis was the perfect host--helping us plan our time before and during the visit, suggesting restaurants, hilltowns, public markets etc. He helped in every way possible and even had a cab waiting to get us to the train station upon leaving. This was our first experience with VRBO and it worked out great. Many thanks, Francis, for make it so!

Still a great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This the second time we have stayed in Francis' apartment. It is definitely one of the best apartments we have stayed in around the world for location and amenity, and Francis, without a doubt takes the prize for the best owner. He is accommodating, helpful and knowledgeable, and will go out of his way to help, from the booking to departure. We would not hesitate to recommend the apartment and Francis, to anyone looking for a great apartment in the centre of Avignon.

The Best VRBO ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were cared for from the time we started communication with Francis to enquire about the rental until the end of our stay (October 2013). Francis is a man of his word. He was prompt to reply to my emails; he was accommodating, always finding a way to suit our needs; he was communicative and clear in his messages; he met us when and where he said he would to lead us to his apartment for the first time; and his sweet apartment is just wonderful! It is clean; tastefully decorated; comfortable; quiet (on a quiet alley); and well equipped. We cooked in a bit and loved the set-up. We travel a whole lot, and we know unfavorable accommodations. Francis's apartment in Avignon is simply wonderful. Thank you, Francis!

A superior place in a superior location

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely wonderful apartment -- yes, there are 3 flights of stairs but worth it every time. The apartment is very clean, well furnished and comfortable. Francis, the owner/contact, is most helpful and pleasant. He sets out a possible itinerary that is a very good guide line -- only somewhat followed. The location is to die-for. Look out the window and there is reverse side of the Palace of the Popes. A very short walk [4-5 minutes] gets you to Place de la Horloge [central square] or the Les Halles [a must market] in Place Pie. And there is a great patisserie just up the street. Don't miss the bistro L'Epicerie.

Avignon was our central location for 2 weeks and was perfect -- everything from the Cote d'Azur to Carcassonne was 3-4 hours or less away. Chateauneuf du Pape and the Luberon are grand.

Merci bien, Francis.
