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

A lovely house full of colour, history and personality, with a lot of France and more than a touch of Italy about it. It is perfectly located - you can walk everywhere - and Sabine, the proprietor, is in turn the perfect host with advice on everything that will enhance your stay. A fine breakfast too - not least for... More

When you think of the perfect B&B you consider location, beautiful rooms, delicious breakfasts and an owner who goes out of her way to make your stay memorable.......L'Hombre Du Palais fits the bill in every way. You overlook the Palace of the Popes; rooms are artful, colourful and tasteful; breakfasts are just delicious; and finally Sabine, the owner....the epitome of... More

My husband and I stayed at L'Ombre du Palais during our trip round Provence. You cannot fault L'Ombre for its fantastic location next to, and thus, amazing view of Les Palais des Papes. It was also helpful that the public car parking entrance was adjacent to the house. Sabine and Madeleine were incredibly welcoming and friendly and we very much... More
