This handful of suites and superbly equipped apartments lies a short stroll from both the train station and Avignon’s city center. Decor is Provençal-themed, and each room boasts either its own private balcony or panoramic views over the town’s medieval ramparts. As well as speedy Wi-Fi and unlimited free telephone calls abroad, some of the residences also possess kitchenettes and sleek Nespresso espresso machines. Host Philippe is also a mine of information on local restaurants and sights. Note: Apartments may also be rented (at a discount) by the week.
