“A perfect part of our trip to France.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

It took a long time to write this review because I'm terrible at remembering to rate things. This is the very first place I have ever reviewed and it is because of the exceptional experience my wife and I had staying here. Veronique and Frederic are exceptional hosts and will either be engaged or leave you alone depending on your preference. We highly recommend engaging them, as she is very knowledgeable about the area and was quite helpful for us to find dining and the wonderful market. If you have a chance, you MUST try the home made preserves her and her mother make, as well as the authentic, local Lavender Honey. The location is great as you don't have to drive to get to most restaurants, however, don't rent a large car if you plan on parking here as Avignone has tiny streets and can be tight for a large vehicle.

There is a wonderful garden right next to her place, which is nice to visit as well.

The room was exceptionally clean and well stocked with what we needed for our stay. Nice large shower (no bathtub which was fine for us). I prefer a separate toilet, which it had as well. The room had plenty of light and was nice and quiet and opened into the courtyard where we had our breakfast. The bed was comfy, and the sheets were very clean. We stayed in the Chambre Turquin. In the photo of the dining courtyard, you can see the french doors to our room. If you have more than 2, I'd strongly suggest renting one of the larger rooms. The rooms were so nicely decorated I even took pictures of them!

Again, the breakfast she provided was wonderful, with fresh breads, fruits, cheeses and jams and fresh coffee and juice.

If we visit the south of France again, we are definitely going to partake of Veronique and Frederic's hospitality. What an incredible part of our France visit!

Room Tip: Chambre Turquin is a cozy room, with lots of light (french doors) and opens to the courtyard. Also i...

Can't say enough wonderful things about Cote Square that haven't already been said. Just have to confirm what everyone else is gushing about. Besides being a great location to explore the region, the hostess, Veronique, is so friendly, energetic & full of helpful suggestions of where to go & what to see. Her breakfasts were consistently delicious with homemade yogurt, jams, honey & selection of fresh baked goods. Always good conversation at the breakfast table. Room was spotless & bed so comfortable. So nice to have a garage for the car. We were planning on staying 2 nights but had the flexibility & pleasure of stretching it to 3. Veronique & Frederic were kind enough to juggle a thing or two so we didn't have to move rooms! The location was fantastic for walking around the walled city & a cute little park literally next door to stroll through as you explore the town. Wonderful stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in the larger room - Ibis Room

Veronique is truly a wonderful hostess. I felt as if I was staying with a family member of close friend. Every morning we had a wonderful breakfast of homemade yogurt and preserves, as well as fresh bakery goods, and fresh fruit. Veronique would join us for breakfast and giver us recommendations for our days activities, her favorite restaurants in the area, etc.. We ate at the best places in Avignon due to her recommendations (check out Coin Cache for a great meal on a lovely square. The room was spotless and decorate in a modern way. The location, as people have said is perfect for exploring Avignon. We only stayed 2 nights, but I wish it had been longer, so we could enjoy visiting with Veronique and her great breakfasts.

Veronique is a lovely person and great hostess. Very bubbly, friendly and helpful. Her homemade yogurt and preserves were really good. Fresh fruit salad and oj. Plus croissants and a selection of other breads from the local bakery. The location is a little hidden away which is nice for a city with 13,000 people inside its walls. Just a few blocks away from the Tourist Information office and Avignon is very walkable. We liked Place du Corps Saints for a less crowded place for lunch or dinner. Overall a very good experience.

We recently spent three nights at Cote Square B&B and we couldn't fault it. Veronique and Frederic are very friendly and helpful and are perfect hosts! They will provide advice on where to go and what to do. The location of the B&B is ideal, it is just inside the walls and is walking distance to everywhere you would want to go in Avignon. There are a lot of one way streets in Avignon so it can be a bit tricky to drive around but if you follow Veroniques instructions you won't have a problem finding the place. There is a parking garage at the bottom of the town house which is a huge bonus. We stayed in the Turquin room which was small but perfectly formed, there is an extremely comfortable double bed, toilet, hand basin and walk in shower, there is also the added bonus of patio doors out onto the terrace. The whole house is decorated beautifully. Breakfast is very nice and is great way to get chatting to the other guests as well, Veroniques homemade yoghurt was delicious! All in all Cote Square made our stay in Avignon perfect and I don't think there is any point looking elsewhere!

This comfortable B&B right in the heart of Avignon was the perfect base for us as we explored the old town over the course of several days. It is set in a newly-renovated townhouse, with entry foyer and enclosed garage on the ground floor, guest rooms one floor up, and the family’s home on the floor above.
We took the two rooms that open onto the terrace, each with en-suite bathrooms. The rooms were large, bright, clean and cheerfully furnished, with fluffy towels and quality soaps. The free wifi worked well and was quite fast, which is not always the case in France. The airy terrace was a great spot to relax and chat throughout the day. This is also where breakfast was laid out each morning.
The owners Veronique and Frederic were generous with their time, coffee and delicious breakfast spread, and provided great recommendations on where to eat or what to see, both in Avignon and the surrounding region.
The townhouse is next to a small public park that has a small playground, and is close to the centre of the old walled city. Everything is within walking distance, including the papal palace and other attractions in Avignon. There is also a small convenience store around the corner on rue des Lices, which surprisingly charged less than some supermarkets.
Free and secure parking for our car was just the icing on the cake – other places would have charged at least ten euros for that alone. If you are driving, make sure you follow Veronique’s instructions on how to get there, rather than relying on your GPS. The streets are mainly one-way, and the GPS will have you running in circles.

5) close to Train stations
6) fluffy pillows and remarkably quiet at night
7)wi fi worked really well
8) air conditioned
9)great home made breakfasts prepared at a time thar suits you
10)very spacious rooms and a great outdoor setting

don't even bother to look elsewhere!
