We are a family of 8 and we had 2 double rooms and a quadruple room. The residence (part of grand hotel) was perfected located beside the Avignon city train station (3 mins walk). As mentioned by all, Philippe was very informative and helpful and provided lots of informations promptly (by emails). The rooms were very spacious, clean and very well furnished and come with a balcony. Toilet area was spacious even though it had the bath tub and also an enclosed showering area and another sink area.
Was very impressive with the free Internet service which also enable you to make internet call any landlines to any part of the world ( very similar to Skype but on a handset). Also the numerous tv channels available.
Will definitely come back again if set foot at Avignon.
