“Beautifully Decorated Gem in Perfect Location”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed it. We had difficulty finding Maison Velvet because there's no sign, and a building a few down has a very similar address. But once we found it, we were welcomed by Maya, a very nice woman with a super interesting story. The inside is airy, sunny, tastefully decorated and calming. The breakfasts were tasty. But most of all, we loved the location. There is the most charming street that Maya directed us to, a few streets over. We had a Belgium beer and sat the cobblestone next to a water wheel. Avignon was one of the major highlights of our trip through Provence.

Wonderful B @ B spacious beautifully furnished house and rooms, absolutely spotless
The terrace was amazing so relaxing to sit outside amongst all of Maya's well cared for plants
Maya is charming and friendly and goes out of her way to ensure your stay is comfortable.
My husband was ill with a very bad cold and sore throat and Maya fussed over him with hot water honey and lemon teas Her breakfasts were superb,with a variety of choices and so wonderfully presented, the best B @ B we stayed in both England and France.
Maya loves meeting new people and she has that special gift of connecting on a personal level
with her guests.She is proud of her beautiful house and rightly so.We wish her all the best for
the future and hope one day to return to Maison Velvet.

We stayed at maison velvet for 3 nights in early may 2013.
We found maison velvet to be the most spacious accomodation. Maya the host was excellent and gave outstanding information on what to see and do in the area.
Also her breakfasts were "superb". We would thoroughly recommend maison velvet to any travellers visiting avignon.

Room Tip: All rooms look good to us.

Maison Velvet was perfect. Maya was an exemplary host who went out of her way to ensure I completely relaxed and enjoyed my 2 week stay in Avignon. Maya was friendly, helpful, and never intrusive. She took the time to recognize my likes and dislikes for breakfast, understand when I wanted to chat and when I preferred to be quiet. She booked restaurants, taxis, tours, provided helpful information about Avignon and the surrounding area; including what to do on a cold, windy day and contacting my airline daily until my lost luggage was delivered. Maya was like a friend, interested in my comfort and enjoyment.
I stayed in the Amber room, large and very comfortable. Maison Velvet is in a perfect location, within the city walls and close walking distance to all the sites, yet very quiet.
Avignon was a wonderful retreat from my busy life; only possible by my exceptional stay at Maison Velvet.

We stayed for 2 nights here with some friends and found this to be a wonderful place to stay. Lovely house and convenient location for sightseeing whilst being on a quiet road in the old town. Maya, the host, was very helpful and welcoming,booking restaurants and taxis for us. The rooms were excellent and very tastefully decorated.

Maison Velvet is a secret find in the beautiful town of Avignon. Maya makes you feel so at home that it feels as if you're staying with a friend. The house is perfect in every way. Great yet quiet location in the old town and within the city walls. Beautifully decorated with luxurious bathrooms and comfy beds ...& much more spacious than you expect. Maya is full of insider tips and hints and is willing to help with suggestions and logistics such as the bus timetable or restaurant reservations. My sister and I would happily return and most certainly recommend maison Velvet as one of those unexpected gems that lend so much to a travel experience.

Room Tip: all rooms are equally charming!

What a delightful surprise - this beautifully decorated (with gems from around the world) and refurbished home with the most gracious host, Maya. So elegant, comfortable and completely relaxing. Delicious breakfast. Quiet, convenient location. Maya offered all kinds of tips and travel advice, as well as great conversation. She is an absolute pro and a natural in this role. Absolutely the best stop of our whole trip to France.
