About Elisabeth ATZINGER
A traveller to the core....
Elisabeth ATZINGER purchased this House in 1970
Why Elisabeth ATZINGER chose Avignon
Having been living overseas for now several years, I did not want this beautiful family house to stay closed and neglected throughout the year, so I decided to propose it as a vacation rental, enabling numerous guests to enjoy its charm and spend fine holidays.
What makes this House unique
Close to the historical center, which you can reach on foot (10 /15' walk). Large garden with beautiful old trees, swimming pool and sundeck with summer kitchen/barbecue and in the colder season, a very comfortable house, very well fitted with modern equipment.

Lovely Country Space in the City
Our family of four stayed for a week just after Easter Holidays and although the weather was mostly wet and cool (hence 4 stars), we found that this historic, charming house had enough to offer us a very comfortable stay. The kitchen is very considered with all that is needed for cookware and storage and light which is off the dining room which was very relaxing to sit and have long meals and family time. As both of our teenage boys were studying for exams, my husband and I enjoyed looking through and reading from the great library of books both in French and English - much appreciated. The walled garden is extraordinary for being so large and picturesque for sole use of residents - just a brief walk away from the city. The Owner, Elisabeth smoothed things along with her supportive texts to check on us to ensure we had everything we needed. Summed up - a lovely property with an amazing garden, which provides a great peaceful, respite from the busy, modern world.
Quiet place right by the old town
We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Camellias! There was enough space for all 6 of us (all adults) in the house to feel comfortable. The house has a walled in garden, ideal for relaxing, and it is really close to the old city walls. It was easy to get out of Avignon if we wanted to drive further away and enjoy more of the Provence. Elisabeth was very helpful and searched answers to all our questions. Thank you very much! We had a wonderful late summer week in October!
My son (the owner) and myself are grateful for your kind comment, which is an encouragement for us to keep on improving the property as much as we can.
Had a fantastic week in Avignon. Elisabeth our host was amazing. A lovely lady. Communication was excellent and she went to great lengths to ensure we had a perfect week. The house was in a brilliant location just a ten minute walk into the centre of Avignon but very private and quiet. It also had some shops only a few hundred metres away so food shopping was easy. The house had everything we needed for the two of us. Only one bathroom so great for a couple or family. The only negative was lots of mosquito bites so bring your spray and use it when you sit in the garden. Driffa the lady who looks after the house locally was a joy to deal with. She made sure the house was cleaned and ready for us early on our arrival and was only 10 minutes away if we needed help with anything.
This very kind comment encourages us doing always our utmost in order that our guests feel at home in our property
Ideal location for a 'no car' break
This holiday home was in an ideal location if you want a relaxing break WITHOUT a car. Ten minutes walk and you are in the centre of Avignon. Five minutes walk to the main train station (not TGV) with rail connections to the surrounding area. Ten minutes by taxi to TGV @ 15euros.
From start to finish the owner Elisabeth was extremely helpful and responded to any queries within a matter of hours.
4 adults and 2 small children .......couldn't have had a better base. The pool was ideal for the 2 little ones with shallow steps right across one end and plenty of shade.
The only downside was the mosquitos, take plenty of repellant and bite cream.
A perfect holiday home.....would definately book again.
Wonderful week in Avignon
Two sisters, two brothers in law and two nieces spent a very pleasant week at Villa Camelias. Kitchen was well equipped and we made good use of it. Fantastic chance to use all the amazing produce available in the local market. Beds very comfortable and plenty of space inside and out for everyone to spread out and enjoy themselves. WiFi was the best and most consistent we encountered anywhere. The garden is beautiful and we all enjoyed sitting by the pool after a day of sightseeing. The owner/manager was extremely helpful and responsive. One word of caution for drivers - we were driving a full sized minivan. Rue des Camelias is very narrow. Getting into the driveway was a little tricky and getting back out was very challenging given the angle. Just take it slow
We (3 adults) stayed at this property for a week in late October 2014 and were entirely impressed with it.
The house was clean and well maintained, the kitchen was well equipped and the rooms were comfortable. The garden is an amazing space.
The owner/manager was incredibly helpful, all emails and enquiries were answered promptly and comprehensively and the person that met us at the property was also very lovely.
There was a lot of information on local attractions and tours in the house and the location of the house was central to all things Avignon. Avignon itself is a great base to explore this part of France - we visited Arles & Nimes from here as well as a couple of half-day tours to the Pont du Gard and Bau.
We have recommended this property to others and we hope to visit again soon
