It has been 7 months since we spent a week in this fine apartment, but it still has us yearning to return to Avignon. And when we do, we will definitely stay at Gerard's Carreterie loft. He was an excellent host - very easy to deal with and helpful. Our family of four found this apartment perfect for our needs. Plenty of room. Separate beds and spaces for our teens - a good thing to have on a 3-week family vacation. It is conveniently located, clean, comfortable and quiet. We walked to most places within the walled city, including the banks and bistros of Place de l'Horlage, and always felt quite safe even at night. Carrefour grocery was just a couple of blocks away from the apartment, as were two or three nice bakeries for fresh-daily croissants and breads. Le Cul de Poule restaurant just up the street in Place des Carmes was excellent - one of our best dining experiences in France. Parking is very scarce in the centre of the city, so it was wonderful to have a secure garage for our rental car, and access in and out of the centre was quick and easy for our day trips in the country. The only small negative, and we actually found it funny, was that the coffee maker would only work intermittently so brewing a pot of coffee might take 30-45 minutes if you weren't paying attention! Gerard is so attentive, I have no doubt it's been replaced by now. Stop the "Book Now" button. You won't be disappointed.

If I could give it 0 stars, I would!! We left after one night, but that ruined our stay in Avignon anyway! Gerard refused to refund any of our money claiming that "it was just our DECISION to leave"!!! The reviews are obviously fake, written by the owner and friends. We stayed in many apartments in Europe, but never had such a horrible experience. The immediate area surrounding the apartment is the terrible! The street smells of urine and garbage, plenty of abandoned stores, no clean cafes to have breakfast in the morning should you choose not to eat in the apartment, drug addicts roaming the street at night ( we were approached by one asking for money on our way to the apartment on the first and only night we spent there). The apartment had a strong, unpleasant smell in the living room area, horrible mattresses and pillows in the bedrooms, dated unpleasant bedding. No windows in bedrooms, just doors, which Gerard advised us to keep closed at night (safety Reasons??!!), so there is no air coming in to the bedrooms.We spent a sleepless night listening to drunk people screaming and singing on the street adjacent to the bedroom door! Nothing extra is provided as far as towess, toiletries, etc. Gerard picked us up from the station for 20 euros, while regular cabs charge 15 ! Avoid this apartment if you want to have a pleasant stay in Avignon!

Owner's Response: A lire les propos de Katherine F., comparés à l'ensemble des commentaires 5* reçus jusqu'à ce jour, on comprend tout de suite l'esprit calomnieux de la cliente. En fait, Mme K.F. a réservé une semaine, payée par carte bancaire, mais a subitement décidé de quitter l'appartement après une nuit seulement, pour aller s'installer dans un hôtel 5*. Les raisons de son départ restent floues, mais il semblerait qu'elle ait eu peur de l'environnement (que s'est-il passé dans la rue ce jour là ???), et qu'elle ait pris peur, ne se sentant pas en sécurité. S'il y a eu un problème dans la rue ???, nous ne sommes aucunement responsable. Mon appartement est très sécurisé, très calme, en 5 ans de location il n'y a jamais eu aucun problème. Nous sommes des anciens professionnels de l'hôtellerie et nous garantissons propreté et qualité de service à nos clients, qui partent toujours très satisfaits. Mme K.F. souhaite se faire intégralement rembourser, alors qu'elle n'a pas respectée les conditions d'annulation. Pour nous la semaine était perdue compte-tenu de son départ précipité. Aussi elle utilise tous les moyens et tous les arguments, même les plus fallacieux, pour atteindre son objectif. Elle ose dire qu'il n'y a pas de fenêtres aux chambres alors qu'il y a des portes-fenêtres (voir les photos de l'annonce), que les commentaires 5* sont issus de "copinages" ce qui est purement diffamatoire....etc En tout cas, les très nombreux clients Américains et de toutes nationalités que nous avons eu le plaisir de recevoir ont tous étés satisfaits, sans exception, et depuis 5 ans..... Alors à chacun de juger la pertinence du commentaire. Et je reste à la disposition des futurs clients pour répondre à toute question afin de venir séjourner agréablement dans notre belle ville d'Avignon. Gérard B.

Huge apartment with garage

  • 5 of 5

We entered Avignon by car and were delighted with private garage located in front of the home with the owner waiting to greet us. The entrance to the apartment is on the side which opens up to a lovely spacious terrace. When we arrived inside it is well furnished with all modern conveniences you need. Gerard and his wife have the rooms decorated very clean and comfortable. There are individual climate control air conditioners throughout the apartment which you really don't need but a great added feature. Their is also Wi-Fi in the apartment and easy to use. The kitchen has all the modern conveniences you need and the laundry room has an area to iron and large washer and dryer. There bathroom is very well designed and the second powder room is lovely as well. The apartment can definitely cater to a large family with plenty of room. The area is located in a perfect city center. Easy to walk throughout the walled city and close to shops and grocery stores (right outside). If staying in the walled city and you want to experience Avignon this apartment is a MUST!

A great large family apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression when we walked into this apartment was how wonderfully large it was. The large living and kitchen area combined with the outside courtyard was fantastic. A huge bonus for us was having a secure garage. The apartment was very well appointed and comfortable. The location in the old town was very convenient to visiting all the local sights and the delectable Artisan Boulangerie a few hundred metres away. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment.

Gerard has put the best of everything in this apartment from hair dryer, to coffee maker to washer and dryer...all top of the line.

Walk to everything, enjoy quiet nights, and have great meals in the fully equipped kitchen. Don't hesitate...

This place is perfect for a group of friends!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is huge and very well appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed for the few nights we cooked in. We loved having the patio and spent almost every night out there reminiscing about our day. Avignon was the perfect place to launch several day trips, but to be honest, there's a ton to see and do within the city walls. Gerard was great to work with, even when we were late getting there. (Make sure you know exactly where you're going, because if you pass it and don't know your way back, you'll make a big loop. We did that several times!) The morning that we were to leave, after worrying about getting a taxi big enough, Gerard picked us up and took us, and all our luggage, to the train station. We loved everything about the apartment, especially having a garage, since we had a rental car. The only thing that would have made it even more perfect is a second bathroom. But, given the choice, we'd rather share a bathroom and have a patio. It was awesome!
