La Mirande is an excellent, luxury, small hotel in Avignon. It is immediately accross the street from the Pope's palace. From their beautiful rose garden, you can see the Palace rise above the stone wall. Their staff is the absolute best. Francis, one of the receptionists, made and confirmed our dinner reservations. Made arrangements for our tours even though they were with companies he had no prior dealing with. He arranged flawless transfers from the airport. He arranged for our tour of the hotel rooms and offered to have us stay a night in a quieter room, if we wanted, because a wedding was being held at the Hotel. We didn't accept the offer and the wedding music was beautiful!
The hotel is in a historic building (Cardinal's residence) and the restoration is flawless. The rooms are beautiful, the bathrooms pure luxury. The breakfast dining room overlooks the garden and is filled with roses. The food at breakfast and in the elegant dining room in the evening is world class and maybe the best in Avignon. There is a cooking school in the basement adjacent to the wine cellar. When we were there, there was a class in session. The group of about 12 people and the two chefs were cooking and enjoying a glass of red wine. The large, rustic/elegant table was set for them to enjoy their meal after they finished cooking. It all looked very appealing.
