We have just arrived back from staying 3 nights at this lovely B&B. It's an old building, very old and in the historic centre of Avignon. Those two facts should give you a clue to the fact that you're not going to be able to drive a 4X4 through the streets easily and park where you want, you will find... More

We stayed in the "Quetzalcoatl suite" for 3 nights having decided to stay in this B&B (Chambre d'Hôtes in French) instead of a more typical hotel. Do not be fooled by the term "B&B" the quality of rooms and building is as good or better than in many hotels. The building is old with a lot of what goes with... More

We had a lovely 4 nights at the B&B. The innkeeper was very helpful suggesting restaurants in the area. They recommended a driver to pick us up at the train station. The rooms were a good size and very clean. The breakfast was very satisfactory. Good juice, coffee and fresh fruit. It was fun staying in a home several hundred... More

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.

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.

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.
