The only disappointment at L'Ombre du Palais was that I couldn't stay longer. The house itself was convivial and eclectic with a balcony overlooking the Palais and spacious and artfully decorated chambres but it was the encounters with Sabine and co. and the other guests that elevated my stay above the usual charming Avignon experience into something rather heartwarming and...

We stayed here one week during the festival and we were welcomed by the Mrs Sabine who immediately made us feel at home. She was interested in what we were planning to do and what we had done the previosu day and we were given a lot of great ideas for both lunch, dinner or visits in and around Avignon.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Sabine's charming home. In spite of unusually hot weather at the end of June, our room was comfortable, even without air conditioning (thanks to a large fan). We stayed in the Ambrogiani room, upstairs at the back of the house. It is spacious, clean, quiet...and decorated with an eclectic exuberance, just like the rest... More

The location is amazing, so close to everything ... Sites, restaurants and shops, nestled in historical Avignon. Room spacious and clean and decorated in the colors of Provence. Our dinner on our arrival night, on the terrace was delicious! And breakfasts so good! The best part of all is Sabine (owner) a true treasure who gathers you in and helps... More

Staying with Sabine in her lovely home will provide the traveler with the total southern France experience. From the moment you enter her gracious home you will be flooded with the colors of Provence and the treasures she has collected from her very rich and interesting life. Exquisitely decorated throughout, her porch overlooking the Palais des Papes was our favorite.... More

L'Ombre du Palais is certainly well-named. It's location is great. The interior reflects the tastes and preference of its owner, the wonderful Sabine. We were in a bedroom done out in orange and red (!) and full of interesting touches. Comfortable king-size bed (like that), small but functional en-suite. Sabine is there to ensure your stay meets or exceeds your... More

You cannot find a better place to stay. Our hostess, Sabine, is the sweetest, happiest person that made us feel so welcome. She treated us "better than family". I hated to leave. This B&B is very clean, the breakfast was continental and good. She makes the best apricot jam. Breads were delicious, nothing like in the states. Her helper, Madeline,... More

Madame Sabine takes hospitality to a whole other level. She is L'Ombre du Palais. From the moment you meet Sabine she is warm and welcoming with excellent English. Her home is like a beautifully decorated museum. She is passionate about her city and has excellent recommendations for restaurants and activities although her best recommendation was to slow down and just... More

We couldn't believe how fortunate we were to stay with Sabine - the only problem was that it was only for two nights - I could have stayed forever. We hadn't planned ahead and feel truly blessed to have found Sabine's place so close to the Palais des Papes. Sabine was gracious, warm and welcoming and a beautiful, classy lady,... More
