Avignon area Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Historic district sought for its calm and shady squares.

1. Description.

This property consists of a former artist's studio on 3 levels ('The Atelier d'artiste') and its independant studio('The Studio') on the ground floor courtyard. The 'Atelier' was built in the nineteenth century, by grafting on a house dating from the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Its charm is mainly due to the mix of ages as well as a careful and faithful to its history decoration.

2. Location

Ideal location close to the small squares surrounded by restaurants and to every shops, especially Les Halles,the daily provencal covered market. Everything is a very short walk away.

3. Its owners.

Duo of decorators, Amaury and Gilles, passionately fond of History and lifestyle, collectors of paintings, from 18th &19th century and works of art, now decorate their mansion in the heart of the largest private garden of Avignon, just beside the 'Atelier d'artiste'. They will guide you to the landmarks and good places of the papal city.

They pick you up at the station or the airport if you wish.(airport : €140)

3. Strengths of Avignon and the surrounding region.

Avignon, historic town surrounded by ramparts and largest theater in the world in July, is rich in architecture, from medieval times to twentieth century. From the Palace of the Popes to the Calvet Museum, through the Lambert Foundation (Museum of contemporary art), you can discover its extraordinary heritage through its many squares lined with plane trees and its alleys.

Avignon is located in the heart of one of the most important tours of South France. Thanks to an efficient transport service (bus, train, rental cars), you will discover at least one hour ride, the more beautiful villages of the Luberon with its lavender fields and olive trees, the largest market of antiques and decoration from France at L'Isle-sur-Sorgue, important historic sites such as Orange and its roman theater, the castle of the Marquise de Sevigné in Grignan, Aix-en-Provence, Les Baux de Provence, Saint Remy de Provence, the Pont du Gard ... but also the creeks of Marseille and the charming ski slopes of Mont Ventoux, the great beaches of Grau du Roi, the wine tours from Suze-la-Rousse to Gigondas through the hillsides of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, the truffle country in Richerenches, bullfights in Nîmes and Arles and many other discoveries yet ...

The best VRBO experience to date! Could not ask for more.

  • 5 of 5

The location is excellent, the facilities are superb, bedding is comfortable, place is clean and the pictures are totally accurate.

The only warning I would provide is that if you are going to drive around the central part of Avignon, make sure you take your time going around corners as the streets are narrow and the turns are tight. Once you get used to this, it is all good. Rent the smallest car you can accommodate your luggage in. And I definitely think it pays to have a car as Avignon serves as a great central base to explore all of Provence!

Amaury and Gilles have done an excellent job in decorating the apartment and the location is close to the Palace of the Popes and the major sites in Avignon, but at the same time very quiet. It is at a dead end of a street so traffic is limited. Amaury has various options for garage parking that is also very convenient.

Amaury will offer great recommendations for restaurants and will help with reservations if asked. He also knows the surrounding area well and can assist there. I had a problem with my hiking boot and Amaury took it to a shoe repair for me. I had an issue with my car rental and Amaury took me to the local Hertz rental car and helped me get a new car. I could go on and on but I think it is sufficient to say that if you stay with Amaury, you will be taken care of and they will enrich your experience. Don't even hesitate to choose one of Amaury and Gilles locations, you will be pleased.

Beautiful studio, Gracious host

  • 5 of 5

This studio is spacious, beautifully decorated, and filled with many amenities that make for a wonderful stay in the heart of Avignon. The walk to the Popes Palace garden was a daily favorite and only moments away. Despite the great location, the studio is private and quiet. Adding to all of this is the wonderful host, Amaury, who takes pride in the city of Avignon and also in welcoming guests to the studio. I was traveling solo, and his kind attention made me feel safe and at home. He and his partner Gilles are planning a renovation of a neighboring property and turning it into a bed and breakfast next year. With their talents and caring touch, I can only hope to return to Avignon to experience another great stay.

Better than any hotel

  • 5 of 5

This studio apartment not only is charming and well appointed, but in a perfect location.....walking distance to any site within Avignon city. And to make it even better, Amaury and Giles are amazing hosts. We loved every moment and hope that our travels bring us back to Avignon again one day. Many, many thanks.

Wonderful studio in the heart of town

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect and our host was very generous with his time, helping us with dinner reservations ( all delicious)directions and Avignon sights.

Garage parking was around the corner and convenient as we wanted to explore Avignon on foot for a few days.

Would highly recommend a stay at this goegeous apartment.

As if the Studio was not enough, the hosts really make the occasion ! Amaury and Giles are amazing in every way and go out of their way to see to every detail. We can't say enough about them, except they are the perfect to every need without hovering.

The grounds are beautiful, the location perfect and very quiet, and the bed was superb.

We will definitely return! Thank you Amaury and Giles for making our trip wonderful.

10 stars wouldn't be enough...

  • 5 of 5

As amazing as the studio was, and it's nicer than any 5 star hotel room I've ever booked in France, Amaury and Gilles are the highlight. You won't find two better hosts, or people, during your travels. The apartment was stunning, had every bell and whistle (including an amazing bed), and couldn't have been in a better location. Everything was not only as advertised, but better in person, and the hosts helped book any/all reservations you might need.

I can't wait to go back because of the experience this apartment, and the hosts, provided. Staying in this place is worth the trip to Avignon alone.
