One night stay in Avignon prior to cruise

Four of us coming in prior to a river cruise. Does anyone have a conveniently located hotel idea? Also, looking for private transportation from Marseilles. Any realiable companies would be appreciated. Thanks

When are you travelling?

Getting from Marseille to Avignon on the train is dead simple. Don't know why you would want private transport.

How simple? We are four, fairly in shape adults. We will have quite a bit of luggage with us as we will be staying three weeks so I thought a car and driver would be a treat considering the overnight traveling will all be doing. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Pretty simple. You get on the TGV....leave your luggage in the luggage holding area at the end of the car and you travel at 175 miles an hour to be in Avignon in 30 minutes.

You would have to search to find a car service with a vehicle large enough to transport the 4 of you and your luggage.

Just an FYI for anyone interested. Booked le banasterie based on reviews and so far have been very pleased with the owners quick responses, rate for the rooms and help with transportation. He led us to private transportation for the four of us 120 euros total. After a long night and day of traveling, we are looking to just relax on our first day of a three week trip. Thanks to all who helped and I will review upon our return.

Soundsd an excellent plan. La Banasterie is highly praised on this forum. Your review would be very much welcomed, both for the place itself and for the transport company.
