We feel so fortunate to have found Le Prieure. It was just exactly what we wanted for our
stay in Provence. Our room was large and spotlessly clean. Service was impeccable.
Dinner was expensive but worth it. The village of Villeneuve is quaint and a perfect retreat from the city of Avignon. I hope to return sometime in the future.

I keep returning to this gorgeous place. A real haven of peace. Ask for a room in one of the new buildings. They are very tastefully decorated and offer the perfect blend of antiquity and modern amenities. The restaurant offers fantastic food and impeccable service on top of that. Hard to believe it's not Michelin starred. The Prieuré will certainly remain one of my all time favourite hotels.

Looking for a nice hotel not too far from Avignon, we were attracted by the good reviews of Le Prieure and decided to book for two nights.
Upon our arrival, just before entering the car park, we were taken aback by the constructionsite. When making the booking, we were not informed about the construction, going on nearly on-site. Fortunately, our stay was during the -holiday-weekend and we were not bothered too much (although there was work going on on Saturday.)

Our room was a nice large corner-suite with balcony in the Atrium, overlooking the pool, with a bedroom, two sittingrooms, two bathrooms, a separate lavatory and a walk-in closet. Decoration is best described as "minimalistic", don't know wether to think of it as rustic or modern.... Bathrooms very nice and modern, double sinks, one bathroom with shower, one with bath. And fortunately: Airco in both bedroom and sittingroom. But somehow, we had mixed feelings about the room: It lacked Provencal warmth and colours and thus cosiness.
The bathroom with shower had no curtain on the window and the constructionworkers, who were working across on the first floor of the opposite building, could look straight through our window into the shower!
All hotels (Relais & Chateaux; Leading Hotels) we stayed in during our trip in France, had a small welcome gift in the room (either fruit, wine, champagne, sweets, even flowers), with a welcome-card from the management, however: Nothing of the sort in our room at Le Prieure. Of course, such is at the discretion of the management, but somehow, it felt like a missed opportunity.

The pool didn't look very attractive from the room: Water was greenish and full of leaves.

The reception-area is ok, not too big , but again: It lacks the warmth and cosiness.

The grounds of Le Prieure are nice and a wine-bar with lovely patio for the pre-or after- dinner drinks has recently been opened.

We had dinner on the patio of the restaurant, the first night. Nice ambiance, the food was ok; nothing wrong with it, but just average for rather a stiff price. The same goes for the waiting-staff: OK, nothing wrong, but....?
The second night we had dinner on the patio at Hotel La Mirande in Avignon, overlooking the Palais des Papes: Wonderful ambiance, great food and all in all cheaper than the previous night.

Breakfast in the morning in the restaurant: Plenty of choices from the buffet, but like many reviewers stated: Walk around the corner and have breakfast in the village: It doesn't cost you 19 Euros per person!

Reception staff was very friendly and professional and showed us our way about.
Taxi to and from Avignon is 10 euros one way. They bring and take you to and from where-ever you want within the walls of Avignon.

Villeneuve itself is a nice little town, with some must-see sites. Plenty of restaurants and a big lively square just around the corner of the hotel.

Of all the hotels we stayed in during our trip to France, Le Prieure was the least nice. Nothing wrong with it, very good location (too bad about the construction however) , nice room, professional and courteous staff, but it lacked something we cannot put our finger on.

With a beautiful garden that makes the whole place smell of flowers, this hotel is wonderful in many ways. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. We stayed for five nights in a suite that was spotless, spacious and stylish. Villeneuve is a great place to stay with many bars and restaurants and fabulous historic sites bwhilst being away from the bussle of Avignon. There is though quite a big BUT. There is no food available (apart form breakfast) on Sundays or Mondays- not even room service. We had our four year old daughter with us who on one of the eveings was too exhausted to go out so that was it: no food. Even on other days room service is limited to the restaurant menu at breakfast (overpriced as everyone says) and dinner. There is no other room service during the day and no lower-key options during the evening. For a four star hotel there should be more on offer. Having said this, the pluses are great , and the one problem could be easily rectified. I would go back again.

The hotel took on new owners and had a major refurb a couple of years ago I would strongly recommend you should ignore any reports prior to 2006/7.

Located in the very attractive small town of Villeneuve Les Avignon it offers a great place to stay without the day tripper bustle of Avignon itself. Avignon is a great place to visit.

A member of the Relais & Chateaux group Le Prieure gives exactly what you would expect from such a prestigious name.

First class staff, who are exceptionally helpful..a magnificent restaurant...spacious well appointed rooms (we had a suite overlooking the outdoor pool)..quiet but easily accessible location.

The restaurant is exceptional in all aspects...ambience...food ...wine ...service...all amongst the best you will find anywhere.

Villeneuve is a 20/30mins walk, 5 min bus(regular & cheap) / car ride from the historical centre of Avignon and has a dozen varied and very good restaurants in a 2 to 5 mins walk from the hotel.

The nearby restaurant 'Aubertin' is to be avoided...looks great but does not deliver.

So what is the 'but one'...the price of breakfast at the The Prieure.....19 euros each....so....take a short walk 200yds to the Cafe Place du St Marc...believe me you cannot miss it...a great breakfast with breads collected from the boulangerie opposite for 6euros!! All from blues loving owner who is extremely friendly.
