What an amazing experience! You must put Avignon on your "bucket list". We stayed three nights, but would have gladly stayed a week. Took the TGV from Paris to Avignon (approx 650km) in 2.5 hours.......gr8 experience. Met on arrival by a young lady from Provence Reservations who had a mini bus. Took us from the TGV station into the heart... More

We were fortunate enough to book the last couple of rooms for a summer weekend in this beautiful guest house. The decor was really charming, with a very individual style. We loved our home-made breakfast, especially the fruit compote. Sabine was very welcoming, and looked after us exceptionally well. We really appreciated her restaurant and touring tips. The hotel is... More

This gorgeous bnb is perfectly located at the doorstep of Palais du Papes. You could not ask for a better location, particularly if you are only in Avignon for a short period. Extremely close to all the restaurants and main tourist spots. Sabine, the host, was an absolute delight. She gave us all her recommendations for where to dine (and... More

I stayed with Sabine in June for the second year in a row and it was even more delightful than the first! The B & B is quite a treat, in the best location in Avignon right on the square of the Palais de pape and walking distance to everything to see in Avignon. The furnishings, décor and ambience are...

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at L'Ombre in May. Sabine arranged for us to be picked up at the TGV station after we dropped off our rental car, and upon arrival at her home, she greeted us with snacks and wine. She is a gracious and helpful hostess. Her dinner and lunch recommendations were terrific, and... More

This charming and intimate bed and breakfast is strategically located at the main piazza of the Palais des Papes at the heart of old Avignon. The interior decoration of this three-story building reveals the refinement and artistic sensitivity of its owner, Madame Sabine Ferrand. Walls painted in vivid colors, paintings and photographs as well as an interesting collection of Asian... More

Enjoyed a very pleasant stay at L'Ombre du Palais during the festival. It's location is superb overlooking the Palais des Papes. Sabine the owner is a wonderful lady very welcoming and provides lots of information on things to do and see as well as very good restaurant recommendations.

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
