The Experience

You couldn’t be better placed for ambling round historic Avignon than at this B&B within the city’s old walls. The latest incarnation of a building that has in its lifetime been part of a monastery, a barracks and a factory, there are now five light, spacious en-suite rooms in the main house and an annexe converted into a cosy apartment for four. Dutch hosts welcome you with a glass of wine and you start the day in the newly-glazed breakfast room with pastries, ham, cheese and eggs. Though the Palais des Papes and Pont D’Avignon are only a short stroll, it’s blissfully calm. Cool off in the sparkling pool (it’s heated out of season too) after a busy day sightseeing.

We had a lovely stay. The room and bathroom were lovely and comfortable with good aircon. The garden and pool area are delightful and the pool was perfect for a dip. The hosts were lovely, a perfect mix of helpful and discreet. The breakfast was delicious. Avignon's sights and restaurants are 5-15 mins walk away. Thoroughly recommend.

We arrived for our first visit to Avignon and found L'Observance a short walk from the rail station. We were greeted with a welcome drink by wonderful hosts . The setting is wonderful , a quiet historic backwater yet close to the town. We were shown to a modern and well equipped room where we stayed for 3 days in a perfect calm. Breakfast each morning was a lovely experience , croissants ,fruit meats and cheeses. Our hosts could not have been more helpful and the whole visit was made the better for finding such a peaceful haven. We plan to return.
