“Perfect base to see Avignon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

A young British couple, we stayed for three nights in a well equipped studio. Although it was on the ground floor facing the street, there was very little noise at night - even Friday and Saturday - to disturb our sleep.

The owners are fantastically helpful, even going so far as to help us arrange a taxi back to Nimes Airport very early in the morning. When we accidentally overslept (the clock change shamefully caught us out!) we were woken up by the friendly taxi driver knocking at our bedroom window. He deserves a medal!

Thanks also to the owners - who directed the taxi driver to our window - for helping us, and I'm so sorry for waking you!

The Autour de Paradis is a great spot to stay in Avignon. Conveniently located within the walls of the city you will find shops cafes and restaurants within a very short walking distance. We arrived by train and took the shuttle a short distance to the bus station.Travelling by car may be more difficult for those that do"nt know the area as many roads are narrow and one way within the mediaeval city.
Our apartment was stocked with all that we required. It was both peaceful comfortable and very clean.
Patrick and Sabine were very helpful in suggesting several restaurants, 2 of which we tried were really lovely .

The owners Sabine and Patrick who run Autour du Petit Paradis were terriffic hosts and when you stay here you will agree, they make you very welcome.
I have such wonderful memories of their beautifull rooms and delightful relaxing courtyard.
The most perfect place to unwind after a super day site seeing in lovely Avignon.
I really cant wait to get back there but its along way from my home in Napier HB New Zealand.
So dont delay in booking your stay at Autour du Petit paradis. It will be one of the highlights of your Holiday. it certainly was mine.
Ps the greatest compliment is to be able to recommend this delightful place to all my family and friends It holds special memories and you will find that too. cheers Lee-Anne Napier NZ

I contacted Sabine and Patrick for a last minute extended stay. The first point of contact was filled with impeccable service and continued throughout my entire stay of three weeks. I had a broken foot and they were very accommodating with my every need or concern. Prior to my booking they gave me detailed information about conveniences of local markets, bakeries, butchers, etc. Autour du Petit Paradis was enchanting. The courtyard was a lovely vision, and the sound of the fountain was so relaxing to come home to. They were very attentive to bringing me clean towels and changing my linens, and anticipated my every need. On Christmas they went above and beyond hospitality when they greeted me with a gift. Sabine and Patrick made my holidays, recovery, and peaceful getaway unforgettable. Such hosts are unrivaled, with so many choices for rentals throughout Europe Autour du Petit Paradis in the heart Avignon is a must stay!

My husband and I stayed at Autour in September for our honeymoon and we could not have chosen a better place. Easy to find, right in the heart of the historic centre of town, we had a fantastic time exploring the sites and amazing restuarants and found it a great place to base ourselves.
Patrick and Sabine were extremely helpful and friendly and we especially loved the supper in the courtyard which they generously provided and meeting the other guests.
They provided us with countless restuarant recommendation (all fabulous) and when a restaurant we had booked was closed, Patrick even came and found us and escorted us to another (which turned out to be the best meal of our whole trip in France).
We would absolutely recommend Autour and if we are ever lucky enough to return to Avignon, won't hesitate to stay again.

It took me a while to find a place to stay in Avignon as I wanted to find something Provincial for my first trip to the area. I could not have chosen a more suitable place!
The service we received from both Sabine and Patrick was fantastic and begun the minute I made the booking. They have obviously thought about the needs of their guests and any comments and suggestions along the way as we had an abundance of information not only about the accommodation (directions and facilities) but about Avignon and Provence aswell. Upon arriving we were given a map of Avignon, marking where the accommodation was, nearby supermarkets and bakeries and a number of restaurants, including the average price for a meal. Given that we were staying 4 nights and the accommodation is self catering this information was invaluable. We tried three of the restaurants suggested and each was amazing! We also took advantage of the many books available on the sites of Avignon and Provence.
The room itself was quaint and beautiful and looked out into the courtyard, a lovely spot to have an evening drink. You are supplied with anything you may need (cups, plates, utensils, washing detergent, bottle opener, etc). The air conditioning worked perfectly and the bathroom was quite large and clean.
The locality is perfect and within walking distance to all Avignon sights and the bus/train stop. Keep in mind though, if you are coming in by train from a distance, you may arrive at the train station outside of Avignon centre. However, there is a shuttle bus available at a reasonable price and the bus stop is about 5-10 minutes walk from Autour.
I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone and look forward to returning to the delights of Avignon and Provence.

Patrick and Sabine will make you feel at home in their cosy and well located rooms. They are kind and helpful and this makes this accommodation a very smart choice in Avignon. The place is really quite and at the same time is very close to the buzzy area of the city.
