About Robin Young

Having grown up in Avignon, Elisabeth is keen to preserve the historical legacy of the town. Through the renovation of this beautiful house in the centre of town, we hope to give visitors an authentic feel for this beautiful and unique town. We stay her when we get the chance so it is really our home. We are an Anglo-French family so are happy to help you with any questions if you are not fluent in French.

Robin Young purchased this house in 2008

Why Robin Young chose Avignon

We renovated keeping the original features of the building: large stones, ceilings with beams, plants from the region, marbled floors...

The central location is key to enjoying Avignon, as a car is not needed to explore the town. The apartment is located in a vibrant neighbourhood, and restaurants, bars, cinemas, theatres and museums are a couple of minutes walk away.

The fully equipped kitchen and large dining room and outdoor mean you can make the best of the local produce: shop fresh vegetables and cook them yourself in an idyllic setting.

What makes this house unique

Quiet, close to city centre sites and shops.

Three bedrooms.

Sleeps 9 people.

A beautiful space and shaded courtyard.

A separate studio for 2 on the second floor of the same building is also available for renting separately.

Great location and wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

Avignon was nice to visit in and of itself and also made the perfect hub for exploring Provence and surrounding areas. This rental is in a great location within the city walls...right in the middle of everything - sights, restaurants, shops, and market. The common living areas both on the ground level and upstairs were spacious and we loved morning coffee in the outdoor courtyard. There was also plenty of private space available for 5 adults after long days of traveling together. Having a parking pass for the city lot was a great bonus (easy walk from the rental). Our hosts were responsive and a pleasure to rent from. We desired to extend our stay an additional night and they were agreeable. Highly recommend this listing.

perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I rented this apartment for four weeks in April. It exceeded all my expectations. It was roomy and we all loved the courtyard. Best of all was the proximity of several excellent restaurants. Everything was a short walk away: the train station, the bus station, the tourist office, shopping and many restaurants. Avignon was the perfect choice to act as home base for exploring all of Provence.

Wonderful apartment with a private courtyard!

  • 5 of 5

We were two families traveling together in France and Spain, and we choose this apartment for our 5 night stay in Provence. We couldn't have been happier. The apartment's location is perfect, right near the center of Avignon. There are cafes, restaurants and shopping right outside the door. The apartment itself is beautiful and well equipped. The kitchen had everything we needed. Our favorite part, however, may have been the private garden space which provided a wonderful setting for meals and afternoon wine. We would love to stay here again, and we highly recommend this apartment for anyone visiting Avignon.

Beautiful rental in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this apartment during a recent 5 day visit to Avignon. The guest space was used by our daughter and new son-in-law, which gave them some privacy. The main unit was so beautiful, stone walls, beamed ceilings, comfortable furniture. It was great to have the garden space because we used it for several meals, and for sitting our with a glass of wine after a busy day. I would be happy to recommend this property to a friend or relative and would be happy to return for another visit myself!

Perfect home in Avignon

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property in the perfect Avignon neighborhood. The apartment is gorgeous with ample space which allows for room and privacy for a group or family traveling together. We had 4 adults and 1 child and the house was more than spacious enough for us all. The kitchen is a delight to cook in. The courtyard is secluded and charming. The bedrooms and baths are perfectly laid out to allow for privacy and ease of use. Elisabeth was a responsive hostess. We lacked for nothing in this beautiful home. The neighborhood was also perfect with a boulangerie, a boucherie, an epicerie and several good restaurants within a few blocks. It's also close to Les Halles and easy walking distance to the more central tourist attractions. I would stay here again anytime!

Central Avignon Gem

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this apartment. Because it is arranged on two floors, the living space is much larger than one would normally get. Each room had real character and it was very well equipped. We were not able to enjoy the beautiful courtyard garden because we were visiting in November but it must be simply wonderful to have this during the summer months. The location is fabulous - right in the middle of the old town yet very quiet. We would love to return.
