We spent four nights in this B&B in the beginning of July. Great location - right opposite the Palace, nicely decorated living room and terrace.The owner - Sabine was a wonderful host - very accommodating, friendly and charming. She helped us with reservations for dinners and lunches, she organized tours through local wineries and Sabine was very good in helping... More

The situation of this establishment cannot be beaten. On the doorstep of the Palais des Papes. It is full of charm and character. Sabine is a wonderful hostess who was so welcoming (with a glass of wine). She provided us with great information to help our stay in Avignon. We had an excellent dinner, cooked by Sabine, on the veranda... More

This is a wonderful location in the walled town of Avignon. Madame Sabine is an excellent hostess and greets her guest with great welcome and open arms. Madame is most helpful with the sites worthy a visit, coordinating any necessary arrangements, and making sure one’s visit to her city is wonderful. As her assistant, Madeline, is a pleasure, always there... More

Sabine will ensure that your trip to Provence will be unforgettable. L'ombre du Palais is a fabulous place and Tres Francais! Her advice regarding restaurants, places to visit, things to buy is top notch. The location is right in the middle of everywhere you want to go. If you can get a room there--grab it.

There is no one else in the world like Sabine Ferrand! She is one of kind, and if you are fortunate enough to stay with her in her beautiful home, you will never forget it, her, or the beauty of Avignon. Take her advice on the taxi ride from the TGV station, it is much easier. Our family stayed two... More

Welcomed by Sabine with a glass of rose on her terrace overlooking the Palais de Pape. Sabine is delightful company, her house is comfortable and well situated to enjoy Avignon. She knows, and is known, by 'everyone' in the town. Breakfast is at a communal table which is an entertaining start to the the day. Do stay here.

It was an absolute delight to stay with Madame Sabine at L'Ombre du Palais. Not only did she cope magnificently with my need for gluten free food, she cooked the most amazing dinner which was served on her beautiful terrace overlooking the Palais. This is a unique place to stay. It is comfortable, quiet and perfectly positioned. But the best... More

Wonderful location. Madam Sabine was very nice but we were not relaxed in her property. LIghts on and off in halls and locking the front door were a problem. If you really love B&B's and don't need wifi,mini bar,safe you will love this place. Her assistant Madeline was the best.

Sabine is fantastique! She's received us late at night with a plate of fromages, vin & fruits. It was wonderful. Her place is right by the Palais, close to the Place de l'Horloge and good restaurants. She's recommended us L'Épicerie and it was really good.Room big, quiet, well decorated and clean. Thanks, Sabine!

Our group of four couples found this lovely spot as the hub of our trip to Provence. Not only was this chambre d'hote well-located to many of the towns we were interested in seeing, it was a beautiful respite in itself. The owner, Sabine Ferrand, and her lovely assistant, Madeline, did a wonderful job of making us feel welcome. We... More
