We stayed in the "Quetzalcoatl suite" for 2 nights. A delightful alternative to the hotel. We had a pleasant suite with a comfortable size bed, good shower. Pleasant breakfast with fresh fruit salad, fresh orange juice, croissant, different kind of breads. Jean Michel and Francoise were very friendly and helpful We really recommend this place Charlie .O

A perfect place we look forward to visiting again. Nice location close to The Pope's Palace. The hosts were fluent in English-lucky for me :-D Nicely decorated rooms with a large and VERY comfy bed.

We had high hopes for this B&B, based on the all of the glowing reviews. I will say that it is centrally located, and very convenient to the center of town. The downside… First, the room that we had initially booked was small, with the toilet basically inside of an armoire (as ridiculous as that sounds). We chose to upgrade... More

Nice location close to the Palais de Papes, host was fluent in english and suited to the hospitality industry, beautiful french provincial building and nicely decorated rooms, too dark though, more lighting needed. Criollo room was probably best room despite the suite being larger but on the main street.

thank you for your nice comment I'm sorry I gave you our best suite (Quetzalcoatl suite) instead the other suite (Criollo is nice but smaller than Quetzalcoatl) it was just to upgrade you but it was a mistake sorry again, usualy many people like very much when I do that. More

Our stay at La Banasterie within the old walled city of Avignon was very pleasant. The building has old-world charm with up-to-date amenities (nice bathroom, comfortable bedroom). The owners were very helpful in guiding us to the hotel and directing us from the hotel to where we wanted to go in the city. We were there during the Christmas market... More

Jean Michel and Francoise run a delightful five room B&B in the shadow of the Palace of The Popes. We stayed in the very quiet Criollo Suite. The room had a private little patio which we used for our daily afternoon glass of wine. There are many good restaurants within a short walk from the B&B. The breakfasts were typically... More

This is a pleasant bed and breakfast in a town house in central Avignon. We had a pleasant suite, with a comfortable bed, good shower but separate toilet had no wash basin – the only wash basin was in the shower room, so after someone had showered, washing hands was a challenge in keeping one's feet dry.

La Banasterie is a completely adorable, charming, lovely B&B very close to du Palais des Papes in the old city. Although it's housed in a 16th C. building, the owners have updated the interior and it's very warm and inviting. We stayed in the Sao Tome suite for one night, which is spacious and has its own breakfast area and... More
