My husband and I have travelled extensively in Europe, but have never been to this region together. When my requested airplane upgrades did not pan out, we opted instead for a luxury hotel as our "treat".
La Mirande is small, exclusive, quiet, and elegantly beautiful. The bed was big and comfortable, the service friendly ( even to us Americans), and the food superb. We did the basement kitchen table d'hote one night, which was fun and delicious. Jean Claude, the chef is magical with the food, and very entertaining.. It was nice to meet other international travelers.
We used Avignon as our base, and drove around each day, but if you have the leisure, one could just stay at this beautiful hotel for a few days and take it all in.. Merci, La Mirande... I hope to be back some day.

The charm is extended to the 26 rooms with their painted panelling, drapes, parquet floors and traditional flooring. ... more less
