“Like staying with a friend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Maison Velvet is a secret find in the beautiful town of Avignon. Maya makes you feel so at home that it feels as if you're staying with a friend. The house is perfect in every way. Great yet quiet location in the old town and within the city walls. Beautifully decorated with luxurious bathrooms and comfy beds ...& much more spacious than you expect. Maya is full of insider tips and hints and is willing to help with suggestions and logistics such as the bus timetable or restaurant reservations. My sister and I would happily return and most certainly recommend maison Velvet as one of those unexpected gems that lend so much to a travel experience.

What a delightful surprise - this beautifully decorated (with gems from around the world) and refurbished home with the most gracious host, Maya. So elegant, comfortable and completely relaxing. Delicious breakfast. Quiet, convenient location. Maya offered all kinds of tips and travel advice, as well as great conversation. She is an absolute pro and a natural in this role. Absolutely the best stop of our whole trip to France.

Excellent place with a nice room, brand new bathroom, comfortable. Madame Maya excellent host, gives all kind of useful tips for sites around Avignon to visit, good restaurants in Avignon itself, easy to park the car just in front of the house, walking distance to the center of the city, it is within the walls. We enjoyed very much our stay with good breakfast and amenable conversation with Mme. Maya.

Maison Velvet is a beautiful 3 bedroom home located in a residential area just inside the old walls of the city. The quiet location is perfect and within easy walking distance to many popular sites in Avignon. We enjoyed a charming and spacious bedroom with original tile work and large private bathroom.There is also an inviting terrace available for guest use as well as a kitchenette. Our hostess was very welcoming and conscientious. She provided us with valuable local information as well as recommendations for less touristy restaurants. Breakfast was very enjoyable with yogurt, fruit, a selection of cheeses, croissants and homemade jams. We would definitely recommend a stay a Maison Velvet.

After a "business" hotel in Arles, Maison Velvet was a fantastic find in Avignon. We received a lovely warm welcome and the choice of three delightful rooms in this beautiful 1930's house in a quiet corner of the old walled city. The bedrooms are individually decorated and have woderful original tiled floors. The beds are fabulously comfortable. There is a small sitting room for guests and a lovely terasse to sit out on. In October the room was pleasantly cool despite being mid 20's outside, so no need to use A/C though this was available too. Breakfast was filling, french AND healthy. Our hostess was happy to recommend resaurants and travel arangements - highly recommended!

Room Tip: If possible choose the room adjoining the terasse.

Maison Velvet is the perfect bed and breakfast- in town in Avignon, yet in a quiet area so you feel very relaxed, however walking distance to everything. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous- exactly as the photos suggest, very modern, clean and spacious. The outside terrace was fabulous as well as the kitchenette we could use for tea/ coffee, fridge, etc. The host, Maya is very nice and friendly. She goes above and beyond to make you feel at home and gave us fantastic local restaurant recommendations, suggestions for day trips around Avignon, providing maps and lots of local information which was invaluable. The breakfast was delicious, including fresh fruit, cereal, yoghurt, fresh croissants and breads with home made jams, and delicious cheeses. Maya is very flexible and will have breakfast ready at whatever time you desire. I highly recommend staying here. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Avignon.
