“a lovely little Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2010

I felt like home in this tiny B&B in Avignon. Marie is a warm host and takes great care for guests. I really enjoyed my stay. The bed was super comfortable and the rooms clean as a whistle. The only down side I would have to say is it's outside the walls of Avignon but then Avignon is really not that big. Other than that it's worth the walk.
Thank you Marie

Chez Marie is a lovely small B&B in a quiet street about 10 mins walk from the ancient city walls of Avignon. The owner (Marie) is very helpful and friendly and provides good advice on what to see and do in the area.
There are only 2 letting rooms - we had the "Hats" room which is a comfortable double room. The room does not have en suite but the bathroom is only two steps down the corridor and is for the exclusive use of the Hats Room. Everything was clean and fresh. We used 5 hotels or B&Bs on this trip and Chez Marie was the only one to provide tea and coffee in the bedroom.

Highly recommended.

We ended up staying at Chez Marie for a week. Marie made us feel so welcome in her house, and we really enjoyed our stay in Avignon. We stayed in the fan room, which is attractively decorated, has plenty of cupboard space for clothes, and an interesting range of books. The bed was extremely comfortable and we had our own en suite and little sitting area. Breakfast was generous, and included a range of pastries and bread that were hard to resist. We enjoyed our chats with Marie, She is a very generous host, and was very helpful in suggesting places to visit, both in Avignon and further afield. Chez Marie is in a convenient location, being just a short walk, about 10 minutes, from the walls of the old city and the bus and train stations. We would highly recommend a stay in this gem in Avignon. We were sad to leave, and hope to return for another visit one day.

We highly recommend staying at Chez Marie to anyone visiting Avignon. Marie's home is lovely. Our room was very comfortable, very clean, and we had enough space for two people to share. Breakfast was always delicious and plentiful. Chez Marie is quite convenient (about a ten-minute walk) to all the shops and restaurants in Avignon. Marie herself is a lovely person who was very knowledgeable about what to do and see in Avignon and in Provence. She made many recommendations of places and restaurants that were some of our favorite parts during our two-week stay in France. If we ever make it back to Avignon (and we hope we do someday!), we would definitely stay at Chez Marie again.

Chez Marie is a gem in a quiet neighborhood near Avignon City. We had the Fan room and loved it totally. We could tell that Marie puts in a lot of effort to decorate her house and to provide a comfortable accommodation for her guest. Clean, pretty, comfortable with a great host, what more can we expect! Do note that it takes about 10-15mins to walk to Avignon Center but Marie is more than happy to give directions as well as tips on where to eat and the kind of tour you could sign up with. The bed is one of the best I have slept on!
Marie is extremely cultural so you can expect interesting french books and great music in the room. Enjoy!

The bedrooms at Chez Marie are clean and quite comfortable and the house is located in a quiet neighborhood. One of its best features is its location, approximately a 10 minute walk to busy Avignon inside the wall. Parking the car is easy on the street outside the house and it is a decided advantage to be able to take in the activities in Avignon without having to drive in the inner city and worry about parking.

My husband and I recently spent 4 nights at Chez Marie. It was a wonderful start to our holiday. The home was lovely and our room was very warm and cozy and spotlessly clean. Marie was a very gracious hostess and was very knowlegeable about what to see in and around Avignon. Chez Marie is located within walking distance to the walled city which was an added benefit. We loved being served great coffee and wonderful breads and pastries in the patio area. All in all, it was a wonderful 4 days and we would certainly stay there again and recommed it to friends.
