“Excellent B&B!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

We stayed in Maison Velvet for 3 nights in July.Avignon was the first "stop" in our route.And first impressions about Provance were unforgettable thanks to Maya and Maison Velvet ).Maya is great hostess, very warm and friendly to her guests. Crystally clean room, big bathroom,small balcony ,all interiors - everything was made with love, in nice Provance style. Maison Velvet is a wonderful place that I recommend to all travellers in Avignon!

Maya our hostess was excellent- very helpful with recommendations for both Restaurants & day trips.( We went to La Chapelier Toque - twice in 4 nights)
Room was very big & well decorated.
Bath was new & well done.
The extra sitting room & patio are a great touch - perfect for cocktails & cards.
It is well located inside the wall & easy 10 minute walk to main shopping & tourist area.
Parking can be annoying - but we found a spot around the corner.
Taxi was short 20 minute & 20 Euro trip to TGV station.
Breakfast was good & plentiful.
I would definitely recommend to family & friends.

I stayed with my sister in Maison Velvet for two nights. This B&B was in a great location and had very spacious rooms with great decor. Maya, the hostess, was very helpful in figuring out bus schedules for day trips. Breakfast was good too!

I have really enjoyed our stay at Maison Velvet a couple of weeks ago; my mother and I stayed 3 days and we really appreciated the owner's warm welcome, her attention to details and generosity. The house is beautiful and decorated with care (amazing original provencal tiles in every room) and you can really tell that the owner, Maya has put a lot of thoughts into creating a comfortable and stylish place and really enjoys looking after her guests.

The location of the B&B is very convenient (a special mention to rue des Teinturiers where you will find lots of quirky bars and restaurants) and is a mere 10min to the city centre. Maya also gave us lots of useful information about things to do in Avignon and patiently answered our questions.

Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay in Avignon, partly thanks to Maya's fantastic welcome. We'll definitely come back again and will recommend this B&B!

My husband and I stayed at Maison Velvet for one week, at the beginning of April, and we were more than satisfied with the accommodation and amenities provided. The property is situated on a narrow street within the walls, a 10 minute easy walk from the centre of town. A taxi from Avignon TGV is 20 euro, and takes about 20 minutes. A shuttle service from TGV station to the centre of town is also available but we did not use it.

The house is typical Provence style, with high ceilings, tiled floors, curved staircase, and full of French character. All three guest rooms are on the first floor, with an outside terrace and facilities for making drinks. Another room with dining table is also available for use by guests on the first floor. Our room (Ivory) was most comfortable, a large superking size bed and newly fitted shower room, facing the street. Aircon is available, but we did not need it at the beginning of April.

Mme Masseboeuf is the perfect hostess, speaks fluent English, was extremely welcoming and helpful with directions and advice on places to visit.

Breakfast was well presented, consisting of cereal, juice, pastries and bread, fruit, jams, etc. Tea or coffee served as required.

All in all a personal service, a home from home, with French style and panache.
