Clean, great location...tiny

  • 5 of 5

There's 3 of us and we stayed 3 nights in this apartment. We loved Avignon and the apartment is conveniently located between the train station and the main sights, with the Tourist Information office being convenient too. Only up one flight of stairs, which was a welcome change from other apartments we rented in Europe. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. Overall it's an awesome value for the money. It would be better for guests who don't need to use the sofabed though.

Tip: We got lost on the way to the apartment because Google maps suggested cutting along lots of little streets in the old town. We should have stayed on Cours Jean Jaurès/Rue de la Republique until we got to the little triangle park with the fountain (Rue Théodore Aubanel I think) then it's more-or-less straight until Rue de la Rene ends.

Great location for exploring Avignon

  • 4 of 5

This location of this apartment is ideal, a short walk from the train station and from the main tourist sights. Les Halles is just outside the door and the apartment is surrounded by great restaurants and shopping. The apartment itself was spacious for two people and had everything we needed for our four night stay. There were a few downsides. The owner added a 30 Euro cleaning fee to our stay after we booked and paid a 50% deposit. This is a 15% increase in the price we were given when we chose to book the apartment. When we arrived, we were told that the internet wouldn't work for the first day and, once it was working again, not to expect it to be very fast. This was frustrating, as we rely heavily on having internet where we stay while we travel, both for working out the daily details of our trip and for my husband. Finally, there was construction on the road directly outside apartment window, which was incredibly loud beginning at 7 a.m. each morning. It also created dust and dirt that made opening the window during the day impossible. While it was nice having the option to run the air conditioner, the weather wasn't warm enough to need it, which meant the apartment felt stuffy most of the time. Overall, it was a great location for a great price and we enjoyed our stay, but we probably would stay elsewhere if we return to Avignon.

Owner's Response: I thank Holidaymaker that allows me to make the following clarifications. Housekeeping is shown on the ad in additional info. When a holidaymaker made a booking site does not add the cleaning fee. as I add them, and the vacationer can choose to accept or not. the reservation is final until payment is made. For noise, the work of the water system was conducted by the city of Avignon week of their stay. For internet, When we arrived at 16h and exceptionally, internet was available the next morning.

We enjoyed staying at this lovely apartment right down the street from Les Halles indoor market. We had everything we needed; comfortable beds, nicely equip kitchen, washing machine. Within walking distance to so many restaurants, tourist attractions, grocery stores as well as other stores. We enjoyed meeting Louise, she was very helpful getting us all settled in. It was the perfect set up for my husband, daughter and I.

Lovely apartment, great central location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in the apartment. It is compact but has everything you need & is close to a wonderful bakers & a large indoor market. We were only about 10 mins away from everywhere so the perfect in town break. Louise was so helpful, answering a lot of e-mail queries from me (!) & really made us feel at home. We'd definitely recommend to anyone planning to visit Avignon

A very nice stay in the heart of old Avignon.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed (three people) a very pleasant week in the apartment. Very good communication with the friendly and helpful owner. Arriving by car, we parked in the Les Halles car park to unload our luggage. The apartment is two minutes from the car park exit. During the rest of the week, we parked in the (free) Parking des Italiens. This worked out very well - the shuttle bus is free, frequent and the bus stop 3 or 4 mins from apartment. If you need to walk to the car, it took me 14 mins.

The apartment is ideally located in easy walking distance of sights, supermarkets and eating places. The apartment was as described and adequate in all departments. This was an ideal base for our day trips to towns in the region and for Avignon itself.
