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.
