About Christine Rieffel
Christine, picture framer (workshop in studio in front of the rent) and Martin, independent architect in Avignon. We like the contact with the people of any horizons, we like the art, the secondhand trade, the journeys and our island in which we live since 15 years.
Christine Rieffel purchased this House in 2000
Why Christine Rieffel chose Avignon
This house was inhabited during 15 years by the same person nd when she left, we decided to rent it for seasonal stays. We rent last summer to comedians who played in the festival of Avignon 2013.
What makes this House unique
Charming house where we feel good, according to the visitors there, functional and very well placed. The island of the barthelasse is one of green lungs of Avignon where you can make walk (bike rides, on foot or in roller). We can join Avignon in bike and cross the Rhône with the river shuttle. A big parking is also in the entrance of Avignon and a bus leads you to ramparts.

Relaxed atmosphere with a lovely pool
Great place to stay, lovely pool and the location is spot on to relax and enjoy Avignon when required
Amazing holiday accommodation, hidden down the end of a track road. Spotlessly clean and modern. The pool was clean and bigger than we expected which was brilliant. As a family of five the property was plenty big enough. The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful.
Thank you for your kind appreciation, it was nice meeting you.
I hope the road home was good.
See you maybe another time.
Great jumping-off point for Provence
Two families - 4 adults and two 3 year olds - found this house to be a great base for a week in Provence. Christine and Martin are excellent hosts; friendly and responsive. They even invited us over to the main house for wine together with their two sons. It was too cold to use the pool while we were there, but the cottage is great, and the location on Bartholesse island is also excellent.
Thank you very much for your nice appreciation.
It was a pleasure to welcome you, your family and your friends and we are very happy you spent a good time in our house and in the aerea - even if the TGV strikes disturbed a lot your timing.
We also appreciated the evening shared with you at home for the wine degustation and typical products - and your son and his friend were so cute ...
Great place, great hosts
I had a very good time with my family chez Christine and Martin. The place is great. Near Avignon but yet quiet.
The house is cozy, even with the heat we had during our stay. The pool helped a lot in this case.
Martin and Christine gave us great ideas to explore the region. All in all, a perfect place to enjoy Provence.
Thank you for the comment. Your were very sympathic neighbours and we had good moments with you, your friends and your family.
Maybe we'll see you again one day in Brazil !
To be repeated...
A very nice place and ideal as a hub to the northern Provence. The house is comfortable and fully equipped. Due to the island location it is very quiet and sorrounded by farmland. Yet the city centre is a short ferry trip away. Shopping is 10 min by car and there is so much to see, that 4 weeks will not be enough to cover the vincinity of a 50km radius. Christine and Martin are perfect hosts. A heaven for wine lovers. Plan for extra space in the car :-)
