This is absolutely an elegant French hotel experience worthy of five stars if not more. The high level of service and care to guests is far and away the best we have ever encountered. There is an extensive menu of activities offered including on site cooking classes, wine tours, a fantastic tour of the gardens of Provence and even a truffle hunt in the countryside hosted by the chef who later uses them to prepare and amazing dinner! This is offered only in season and we are going to book again for next February! The staff goes way above and beyond to exceed guest expectations. The furnishings are luxurious (think silk fabric walls, down filled cushions, frette linens) and every possible amenity is waiting in the rooms (Dr. Hauschka natural products) right down to his Aromatherapy Bath oil kit--wonderfully relaxing after a day out. We have stayed here both in summer and in winter--love the fireplaces in the salon, enjoying tea and cakes on the cozy couches. Like other reviewers have noted, we also did not want our stay to end and felt totally at home and pampered at this gorgeous mansion. Note that we have also stayed at other hotels in Avignon; while the Europe is nice, for example, it is nothing extraordinary. Until we stayed at La Mirande, we had no idea what we were missing. Now we know and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Avignon. Worth every penny.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A stay in La Mirande is an invitation to travel through the exquisite world of decorative art. Located right in the historical city center of Avignon at the foot of the Popes' Palace, it accommodates a sophisticated décor, evoking an 18th century atmosphere and the sedate style of life belonging to times of old. The charm is extended to the 20 rooms with their painted panelling, drapes, parquet floors and traditional flooring. ... more less
