“We loved Paul!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Contemporary Room for two nights during a recent trip to Avignon. It's centrally located, but a little away from the main square which is really nice. We arrived early and nobody was there, but when we came back at the check-in time Anne-Lise greeted us. She is super nice and spoke English pretty well. She introduced us to her husband and cute toddler PAUL. He is adorable. They live in the same building, but we did not hear much from them except at breakfast. Homemade yogurt, croissants and cafe... delicious!

Anne-Lise had some great recommendations for dinner and tablecloths. She gave us keys to the front door so we could come and go as we pleased. Comfy bed and the bathroom was really nice and clean. We would absolutely go back to stay!

Room Tip: All rooms looked very nice. The Contemporary Room had a piano, but it was not tuned. I think it had...

We stayed 3 nights with Anne-Lise, Vincent and little Paul. They were perfect hosts. giving us plenty of space and most helpful when required. Lovely clean room, generous breakfast and a fabulous location!! Restaurants, shops and Popes palace all very close by.

This place is a gem in Avignon! My husband and I stayed 2 nights as part of our honeymoon.
A tip - the street the B&B is on is tiny - so don't bring a big car. We parked in the free car park about 10 minutes walk away after dropping our luggage.
Anne-Lise is warm and welcoming and armed us with a map, parking recommendations and some FABULOUS restaurant recommendations when we arrived.
Room was exquisite and clean and breakfast was fulsome and delicious.
Highly recommended!

We stayed 5 nights at this great B&B. Location is right in the center of Avignon. Everyday we drive to the little town nearby, have dinner back Avignon, walk on the street in the town, very easy and convenient. The room is renovated and beautifully finished with all morden conveniences. We looked forward to breakfast everyday with Anne-lise's homemade yogurt& jams, freshly squeezed juice, pastries from market and seasonal fruits.
We will stay there again next time we travel to south France.

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at La Petite Saunerie. We found Anne-Lise to be friendly, charming and genuinely helpful. We chose the contemporary room and were very pleased with our accommodation: lovely decor throughout, spacious room, modern bathroom and shower. Breakfast was good though it was the least generous & tasty of all the 7 b&bs we stayed at during our 17 day trip in France. The b&b is in a perfect location, in the heart of Avignon's beauty and the property is just lovely. This b&b is still new so with time & experience, it has the potential to be excellent with some added details.

We are from Taiwan and took a trip at south France in August. We stay here for 4 nights from Aug.15~Aug.19 and it's just a wonderful place that will make everyone come back again if one visit Avignon again. The location is great.
All the tourist sites and the train station are in walking distance. It's the best choice if you don't have a car. Also, the decoration and settings in the room are charming.
We live in "La Romantique". Though it's actually what a couple definitely want to stay at, I live with my friends and still have a good time. The bed is comfortable and the space is big enough for up to 3 people. However, the main result why I'll recommend it is that the hostess is so nice.
Every morning she will greet us with a big smile and an abundant breakfast. If you have any question about Avignon, she will do her best to help you.
Her son Paul is cute, too. We really have a great time staying in Avignon and "La Petite Saunerie" and I'm willing to recommend it if you want to have a nice trip at Avignon and the near city.

We stayed in the Bourgeois room for 2 nights and found it charming. The bedroom is large with high ceilings and a lovely 4 poster bed. The en-suite bathroom has a fantastic shower and overlooks a very pretty courtyard. In fact the decor was of a very high standard and felt very "bourgeois." The location of this B&B is very central and Anne-Lise, the owner, was very helpful with recommendations of where to go and where to eat in Avignon. The breakfast provided was delicious with homemade jams and yoghurt, fresh bread, coffee and croissants. There's no air conditioning but the room remained cool and the fan provided was enough to allow us to sleep well, despite very high temperatures in the evenings.
All in all we would highly recommend La Petite Saunerie because it was charming, a great location and Anne-Lise was very welcoming.
