Our host met us at the TGV station and took us back to the charming property. On arrival we were taken to the beautiful garden and given refreshments before being shown to our rooms. The bedroom was beautifully furnished in provencal style, there was also a private WC, bathroom with bath and shower, a small well equipped kitchen and a lovely first floor balcony overlooking the garden, complete with table, chairs and sun loungers.
Our hosts served a wonderful breakfast on the terrace and were extremely welcoming and helpful in suggesting places to visit.
The property is ideally situated, far enough out of the centre of the city so that noise is not an issue. Although the city centre is within walking distance, there is a free bus service with buses turning up every 5 minutes or so. The local station is about a 30 minute walk from the property and the TGV station has a free shuttle bus to the city centre.
Avignon is a fantastic city to visit with many theatres, parks, interesting and amazing buildings, great restaurants, and a warm and relaxing but vibrant atmosphere. We did not find it necessary to hire a car, we found plenty of walking and cycling routes from Avingnon many along the Rhone, as well as some beautiful cities, towns and villages easily accessed by public transport.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this property or location, we will definitely go back. The only draw back were the mosquitos so don't forget to pack some insect repellent!
