Nested in the historic city center of Avignon on a landmark street due to its local heritage, this one bedroom loft apartment is located on the 2nd floor (considered 3rd floor by Americans) of a 4-story walk-up building dating back to the 17th century. The intercom at the entrance is there for the access to this building full of history, on the low traffic street where a small canal flows nearby. This is it, you are in a historic part of Provence, the iconic region of the South of France.
The small entrance hall filters the arrivals into this recently renovated apartment, then opens up to access the rest of the rooms. The open kitchen has all standard amenities, such as an oven, a microwave or a dishwasher, but also a typically French “Raclette” device, for making authentic French cuisine. On its right stands the restroom, where you will have access to a washing machine and dryer. Further on comes a long living room where you will have enough space for the communal life, featuring a flat screen TV with DVD player. Finally comes the master bedroom and its double bed, only accessible from the living room. The entire apartment is fully furnished with a good touch of modern style thanks to its renovation and the recent furniture. From the bedroom and the living room windows, facing west, you will be able to catch a glimpse of the little canal bordering the street.
Being on a small street in the city center of Avignon means that you will be caught into an area with vibrant activity and a myriad of stores, restaurants and cafés. The city bursts with activities and places to visit, going from the imposing Popes Palace to the little crooked streets winding all over the place. The busiest period of the year is during the Avignon Festival, one of the biggest in Europe for theater, combining outdoor and indoor. With all these options, you definitely don't have to leave the center if do not feel the need, but you would surely regret missing some of the picturesque surrounding villages, especially a set of villages renowned for their wine such as Chateauneuf du Pape or Cotes du Rhone, or not visiting the nearby historic capital of Provence less than an hour away: Aix-en-Provence. Otherwise the close-by Mont Ventoux will provide its green landscape in summer and white coat in winter for all visitors.
In Avignon you will be lucky enough to be on the road of a high-speed train linking you to Paris in less than 3 hours and down to Marseilles and its beaches in slightly more than an hour. There is also the local airport, with regular flights to Paris from where you can access the rest of the world.
