“Nothing going on”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

We visited early on the evening and the area was without atmosphere. No one around except a few people drinking outside what appeared to be the only place open which was a bar. Perhaps it would be better to visit in the day.......... The area appeared to be under restoration/renovation and was difficult too walk down due to the cobbles currently being laid. It was good to see the waterwheel turning though.

“Worth a stroll”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

A pretty little tree-lined lane with stream and old watermills, vestiges of the old dying industry which was once so important in the area. When we were there, major re-cobbling was going on, which made it very noisy and difficult to appreciate properly. Also, we had already visited L'Isle de la Sorgue, a few miles out of Avignon, which puts the Avignon Dyers lane in the shade. But still well worth seeing, if you are out to explore the back lanes of the old city as well as the more well known parts.

“This quiet lane as potential, however if pressed for time does not warrant a visit as at Oct 2013”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Am usually drawn to quiet city lanes with character appeal, however the street has been torn up, and is roughly gravelled; massive coils of orange protective duct pipe encircle the bases of the plane trees which line this street. Areas of piled up litter on the canal bank also gave the area little appeal. The water wheels can be seen standing idle.

“A bit off the beaten track”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

Currently there is lots of repair going on, but come back in 2014 and it will probably be back in action. Don't miss the Maison de Chiffres, an interesting Renaissance-era building.

“A tiny street not for the faint of heart”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

The Rue de Teinturiers runs off the Rue de Bonnetiers near Les Halles. It makes sense, back in the day, hatmakers probably used a lot of dye. It's not fancy but it teems with interesting people, small eateries, loud clubs and even some ruins. My kind of place.
