Our stay with the wonderful Sabine at L'Ombre du Palais was absolutely fantastic in every way. Sabine is both an excellent host and a fascinating person. She went out of her way to make our stay special: she recommended restaurants, galleries and sights . Best of all were the times we spent with her chatting over a glass of wine... More

What a perfect place to stay for our first visit to Provence. Staying with Sabine is like staying with your wonderfully sophisticated and fascinating aunt. You are not a patron at a B&B, but a guest in her home. According to "her" taxi drivers, she is their only customer who insists on knowing when they arrive so she can meet... More

Lovely small inn situated beside the main square, with a grand view of the Palais des Papes. Truly in the shadow of the palace, as the name suggests. The owner-hostess, Sabine Ferrand, is one of a kind. Knowledgeable about the area, confident in her opinions, fiercely proud. An encyclopedia of recommendations. Breakfast was included and dinner was available upon request.... More

My wife and I decided that our three-day stay in Provence might be enhanced if we stayed in a local B&B. Happily, we were able to stay in the home of Madame Sabine Ferrand in Avignon. The day of our arrival Sabine cooked for us, which was wonderful, and then made reservations for two restaurants in Avignon that were outstanding.... More

At Madame Sabine's enchanting b&b by the Palais des Papes in old Avignon you are assured of the warmest of welcomes. The decor is eclectic with souvenirs of Madame's travels. Colours are the warm shades of Morocco and the rooms are all named after modern artists. Do take advantage of dinner at least one night during your stay. You will... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights here a week and a half ago. The accommodations are very nice, the location is spectacular and Madame Ferrand is a delight. Every good thing others have said is true. On top of it all, Madame prepared a special dinner for us one evening which we thoroughly enjoyed seated at our table on... More

Fabulous location across from the Palais des Papes, this beautiful B & B is furnished in a luxurious mid-20th Century French style. Madame Ferrand met us on arrival and once we were settled served us wine and delicious treats while she oriented us to the area illustrating with complementary maps. She had wonderful suggestions for restaurants and places to visit,... More

L'Ombre du Palais is a precious gem in the center of Avignon, possibly one of the finest bed and breakfast choices you will ever make. The location is superb, just in front of the main square of the Palais des Papes. From the terrace on the second floor you can enjoy a fabulous view of the Palais. Sabine is a... More
