A gem in Avignon

  • 5 of 5

We just returned after spending a week in this fabulous apartment. First and foremost, Francis is a gem. He will assist in any way he can ! The inside space and exterior garden area are truly exceptional, particularly for an apartment in the middle of a city. You are 15 minutes from anywhere in Avignon.

A Perfect Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the BEST vacation of our lives, honestly, in this beautiful apartment. The location is perfect, from the easy walk from the train station to the numerous museums & cafes. The place itself is gorgeous - the bedrooms, bathrooms & decor all put my own house to shame. I could live here in a heartbeat. I enjoy cooking on vacation and could have easily entertained 30 people here - there is that much space and china wear. There is a nice Carrefour grocery store a couple streets away, plus fantastic bakeries nearby. We explored during the day but tried to dine "at home" at night, and alternated between the veranda, outside in the garden, and by candlelight in the formal dining room. We rented bikes from Provence Bikes (near the train station) and explored our 1st 2 days; 3rd day was a train to Arles; 4th was a bus to Roumelins for kayaking around the Pont du Gard (unbelievably beautiful); 5th and sadly, final day was exploring more museums, cafes & shops in Avignon. We had planned to explore more of the region but honestly loved Avignon & the apartment so much that there was no need. Our only regret is that our three young adult/teen children couldn't come with us at the last minute; we will definitely return with them next year!

Second visit in two years - equally as awesome!

  • 5 of 5

I wrote a review for our visit Spring 2014. This year (2015) we changed our plans to go elsewhere in order to visit Avignon and stay at L'Orangerie. We love the apartment, Francis, the rental agent, and Avignon and surrounding area. This year Francis arranged for a driver to take us to Chateauneuf du Pape for lunch and tour of winery. Denis was perfect and his auto luxurious! Lunch at Verger des Pape (recommended by Francis) was wonderful. We did a bus excursion to Uzes (45 min) for the Saturday market; the train to Nimes and L'Isle sur la Sorgue (each just 30 minutes).

Another perfect stay! We are planning to visit again next year. It feels like "home".

Fabulous rental in a great location in Avignon!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was wonderful! It really does look every bit as good in person as it does in the photos. It was plenty large for our group of 3 women -- we easily could have fit 5 people. The kitchen is great and has all the appliances you would need, along with plenty of dishes and glasses. Also had plenty of supplies such as dish washing tablets, laundry tablets, toilet paper, Saran Wrap, etc. And even kitchen basics such as coffee, tea, sugar, etc. It is in a wonderful location, very central in the heart of the old city of Avignon. Nothing inside the walls is more than a 15 minute walk. Francis was delightful and very helpful. He gave us wonderful restaurant recommendations -- I highly recommend following his suggestions. A great place to stay if you are coming to Avignon!

Avignon in The Orangerie

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful town to enjoy, in a splendid apartment! My wife, daughter and I could not have been happier!.

We appreciated being guided into the rather tricky parking spot behind the apartment garage by Francois.

The equipment in the kitchen was 1st class and we did enjoy cooking (Occasionally) when we did not feel

like dining out in the many excellent restaurants close by.

We had a great week!

Live Life Like A King

  • 5 of 5

My family had 5 nights in The Orangerie in October this year. We were met by the ever so charming owner (who despite his lack of English and my lack of French) gave us a personal tour of his beautiful historic home. It is the whole ground floor of a 1835 four story Mansion. The current owner lives upstairs if you need him. He has renovated it very sympathically to the period in which it was built. Each room has beautiful ceilings and panelled walls. The home is very spacious. The kitchen is modern and the bathrooms luxurious. The family room facing onto a beautiful large back garden was quite breathtaking. Great to have a garage for our rental car. The house's position is so central in the old city. The atmosphere has the WOW factor. We walked to so many gorgeous cafes for dinner each night. Avignon is a wonderful place to use as a base to travel to all the small villages and their markets. I can't recommend it more highly. Merci Jean Paul and Francis.
