Wonderful Location Nicely-Designed Apt in Avignon
This one-bedroom apartment is well-appointed and sharply designed--all in the heart of Avignon. The location could not be better. It is practically connected to the centrally located Palais des Papes and right near the Place de l'Horloge (Clock Square), Avignon's main square (perfect for an evening dinner and close to many a coffee and pastry shop for the morning). We loved the apartment and the host was very responsive. The apartment had a very nice kitchen, comfortable living area, modern bathroom and the bedroom was well appointed with plenty of storage for clothes. The main thing to be aware of is that the apartment is located on the second floor at the very top of a large spiral staircase, and then even further up another thirteen ladder-like steep stairs to get to the apartment. We had large heavy suitcases. So it was a real challenge to get them and all of our things to the top and in the apartment. The master bedroom is also separated from the living area and bathroom so you need to be very careful, particularly at night going between the two. We parked our car at Oratoire, which had an elevator and was very convenient and a short ten minute walk to and from. If you need to do laundry, there is no washing machine. La Blanchisseuse is a good option, however, they were quite busy and needed a four day turnaround. Overall, I'd recommend this very nice apartment in an excellent location in Avignon.
