A very well equipped and tastefully decorated apartment with artwork by the owner help to create a welcoming and homely feel. The kitchen is well equipped (although we didn’t do much cooking) and having a washing machine, iron etc allowed us to pack light which was much appreciated on the last day hanging around town waiting for the train home. Air conditioning was nice to have but we mostly just opened the windows and let the breeze through. The biggest attraction of the apartment is without doubt the roof terrace which was wonderful to have and we enjoyed coffe, the odd lunch and every evening sitting out admiring the view and listening to the sound of the church bells.
We stayed just before Christmas and couldn’t have been happier. The apartment is wonderful, perfectly placed to see everything in Avignon; it’s only a few minutes walk from the Palais and some great restaurants. The apartment is absolutely beautiful. The terrace more than lives up the photos. Even in a cold December it was stunning to go up and see the city. The apartment came equipped with everything we could have needed for our stay and we had a lovely welcome.
We’re already hoping to go back in the summer!
Arriving for our second visit to Avignon,our first through Trip Advisor,we were greeted by one of the nicest men we've ever encountered.Vincent is cordial,affable,informative and caring. In our short stay,Vincent ultimately became a good friend.His English is wonderful:he'll speak English while enjoying our french ! Such a nice man !
The apartment is 5th floor ( lift goes to 3 ).The views will take your breath away.The bedroom is small but perfect with a constant view of the Papal Palace, literally within a small distance.The palace shines in the sun;the palace is resplendent at night.The front room - open kitchen has 3 windows overlooking the city and it's churches.The sound of the bells from both St Pierre and the Palace are constant and amazing.
The apartment is perfect for two.Adequate,user friendly and perfect if you enjoy open space.We requested an additional cleaning which was provided for by the very lovely and gracious Aurelie.She was available if Vincent wasn't. We were so pleased.
Now it's time to reveal the REAL reason to rent this apartment:the private,large,comfortable 6th story view from the roof deck.Picnics and champagne - coffee,croissants and breakfast-night caps a step closer to heaven.Sound too good ? Yes, you're right it does.Better see for yourself.Mention Chuck and Cathy and Vincent will give you a big hug.
The rental was one of the single best experiences we've ever enjoyed in our 35 years of French travel.We easily rate it 5 stars for the total experience.
When you do leave the premises,St Pierre with it's restaurant square is about 90 seconds away.The main square is about 2 minutes.Place des Halles,the greatest indoor market in Southern France is 90 seconds away. Location Location Location.
We hope this helps.

My friend and I stayed in this wonderful apartment for 4 nights. Communication with the owner and apartment manager was easy, quick and seamless. The manager made sure that he answered all of our questions and provided recommendations when we asked for them. Quiet, modern and updated, the apartment has many windows with grand views. Exclusive use of the terrace meant that we ate breakfast and dinner while enjoying a 360 degree view of the old city.
Cannot say enough good things about this exceptional place.
