“Just wonderful”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of December. I could have stayed for ever. Firstly, when we arrived after a long journey we discovered that we had booked the wrong dates by a whole month! Despite this being my error, Francoise was very accommodating and reassuring. She set us up in the beautiful sitting room wth a cup of tea while she readied a room that someone had (very luckily for us!) just vacated. She enlisted the help of her son and the impeccable room was ready in no time. The building us truly stunning - in a 16th century building with beautiful decor and linen and sympathetically renovated bathrooms.
The hospitality was second to none. We were made to feel very much at home and guests are able to use the sitting room for reading or more likely making new friends.
Our hosts Francoise and Paco joined the guests for breakfast each morning. Breakfast was an enormous selection including fruit, yoghurt, cereal, cheeses, brewed coffee and fresh orange juice as well as fresh bread bought each morning.
On the day of our arrival Francoise booked a table at a restaurant around the corner so we didn't need to go back into town. She personally showed us the way there and offered to transport us back after the meal.
It's almost impossible to describe what a wonderful time we had at Domaine de Rhodes. I would stay again in a heartbeat. Be aware that the property is about a 5 - 10 minute drive from Avignon central. It is very easy to get a taxi, but be prepared to give them some directions! The property is well signposted once off major roads.

One of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. We can only re-iterate the accolades that have been ascribed to the hospitality of Francoise and Paco, the comfort, the peacefulness; and the breakfasts - a gastronomic delight to start every one of our 4-day stay! Excellent value-for-money. A car is really necessary, even if you intend just to stay in the area of Avignon (although a bike may suffice for the fit & healthy); but we found the Domaine to be an excellent base for sightseeing - with Avignon close by, and Arles and lots of other places of interest within 30-40 mins.drive.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mistral room; large and comfortable. The bathroom was up a short staircase and was...

Lovely place, in the countryside, quiet, but five minutes away from downtown Avignon

The owners, Paco and Francoise are a delightful couple and gave us great personal attention

Perhaps one of the most peaceful places I have ever stayed at. We intended to stay for three nights, but cancelled the rest of our accommodations in Gar and Bordeaux to stay here another 3 nights.

Wonderful location on an island to the west of Avignon. Wonderful hosts. Reasonably priced. I could have stayed here the entire 3 weeks we were in Europe.

If you stay here you will need a car, but driving in the area (with a GPS) is easy.

Use this place as your home base and any direction you travel is great food, amazing wine and history!

Room Tip: If you have 2 couples either stay in the separated two units in the main building or the two bedroom...

My husband and I recently spent four nights at this lovely B and B in the Matisse room. The inn is filled with gorgeous antiques and art. Our room was very comfortable and looked down on the courtyard. Our hosts, Francois and Paco, saw to our every need. Their hospitality spilled over to include restaurant recommendations, side trip suggestions, shopping, etc. Francois's artistic food presentations and table decor made breakfast very special. While there, we ate several times at a delightful little hotel, La Ferme, near the inn. Walking to the hotel with a full moon overhead and being in the midst of this beautiful landscape was quite an experience in itself! These are the times when the earth seems to standstill and you can take long, deep breaths and feel at one with the

My husband and I spent a wonderful week in the Manguin cottage (separate from the B&B but on the same property). Françoise & Paco were very welcoming & helpful throughout our stay, as well as the couple other staff that we interacted with (one nice woman helped us get into our cottage after we were having trouble with the key the first day!). We had a lot of privacy at the Manguin, but were able to access the main house for wi-fi when needed. We spent a lot of time in the lounge chairs near the garden and ate several meals outside. The kitchen was well-appointed and we were able to stock the small fridge with great food from the local grocery store (in nearby Les Angles). We found the location to be perfect as well, since we relished the country experience (but were still able to get to Avignon in about 5-7 min.). The area around the house is perfect for strolls or jogs in the apples & pear orchards, or along the Rhone. If we ever get to come back to Provence, I would go out of my way to stay at this beautiful property. I highly recommend the cottages as well, if you're staying for a little longer visit. They provide terrific value and a great homebase for exploring near Avignon. The bed in the Manguin was VERY comfortable, we utilized the kitchen and outdoor areas, and couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations or the service we received.

Room Tip: Any of the cottages- Manguin was wonderful!

We stayed in the 2-room Degas Suite. Very spacious, nice walk-in shower. We were part of a group of five. Everything the other reviews have stated is true. Particularly nice was the elegant breakfast prepared every morning by Paco and Francoise. Were there five nights; on two of them we bought food at a supermarket in town and had a dinner (with much wine) outside in the courtyard. Much fun (and saved some money). Early October has great weather in Provence and would recommend that time of year. The lodge is about 15 minute cab ride from the TGV train station. (There were a few cabs outside the station when we arrived from Paris.)
