I stayed at La Banasterie with my wife and fifteen year old son. The building itself is charming and is in a very central location on a quiet side street, with restaurants within a one-minute walk (good ones too!). The owners, Jean-Michel and Francoise make the old house even more atmospheric by lighting the stairs and halls by candlelight at...

My husband and I stayed at La Banasterie for 8 days in early June. I would return in a heartbeat. The hosts were exceptionally attentive without being intrusive. The breakfast (hot chocolate/hot tea, lovely yogurt, fresh fruit, butter croissants & jam) was perfect. Our room was terrific and spacious. The bed was really comfortable, the shower in the bedroom was...

My husband and I stayed on the third floor bedroom in the annex. The room was dark and not a particularly pleasant environment. Some of the furnishings were makeshift. For example, the "nightstands" are two folding chairs with portable lights clipped onto the backrest. One of the lights had a short in the wire and kept turning off. The cleaning...

This is one of the best places I have ever stayed, it was perfect. I stayed in the annex in the Mancerina apartment which is decorated in reds and yellows. There was lots of space, the living area was great for lounging around in, it had two sofa type things as well as a table and chairs. The tiled bathroom...

This was our first trip to Avignon and Provence and we wanted to be pretty central given that we were only staying for two days, without a car. La Banasterie's website looked wonderful and as we were travelling with relatives we were able to make a late booking for two rooms. We were told that one of the rooms would...

A nice, but expensive, accommodation in Avignon, within a short walking distance of the Pope's Palace. This was my wife's favorite accommodation in terms of decor. Area around the home is run down with graffitti. Parking is a good 5 min walk to the public garage. Breakfast was a typical contental breakfast but nicely served and presented in the eating...

The place is near all the tourist attractions, yet hidden in a quiet street. Quiet, peaceful, and charming. Due to availability, we had to get a more expensive suite. It turned out to be a great arrangement. The room was beautiful with old-world charm. We were on the top floor, so after a day of sight-seeing, we were able to...

My husband and our 14 month old stayed at their annex property March 23-26 for 4 nights in the first floor room (in other words the second floor apartment). We really enjoyed our stay here.

My husband and I stayed at La Banasterie during the Christmas holiday after reading the very positive reviews. The rooms are tastefully decorated and spacious and the proprietors were especially helpful in arranging restaurant reservations on Christmas Eve and Day. I usually don't go for the floral "fluff" that most B&Bs exude, but this one was very romantic and I...
