My husband and I stayed at La Banasterie during the Christmas holiday after reading the very positive reviews. The rooms are tastefully decorated and spacious and the proprietors were especially helpful in arranging restaurant reservations on Christmas Eve and Day. I usually don't go for the floral "fluff" that most B&Bs exude, but this one was very romantic and I went for it big time (candlelight on the stairs, scented lavender hangers in the closets and the bathroom had a nice, deep soaking tub). The breakfasts were simply but thoughtfully prepared with fresh fruit and breads--just a lot of nice touches. We would stay here again in a second.
I foolishly booked us at Hotel d'Europe, a high-end hotel in town, for the final two nights of the stay in Avignon, thinking it would be very upscale and a different kind of experience. Big mistake! We cursed ourselves for not staying at La Banasterie the entire time. Read my review of that hotel for more details.
