We have just arrived back from staying 3 nights at this lovely B&B. It's an old building, very old and in the historic centre of Avignon. Those two facts should give you a clue to the fact that you're not going to be able to drive a 4X4 through the streets easily and park where you want, you will find narrow steep stairs and there won't be a lift. Also this being France you are probably going to get croissants and bread at breakfast rather than a full English. If you do decide to stay here you will receive a wonderful welcome, stay in a delightful, comfortable room (Quetzalcoatl) furnished with eclectic antique styling, stay in a peaceful room, say hallo to a very friendly cat and a dog, have a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt, bread and pastries together with fresh fruit juice, tea and coffee. They have a kettle!! so you can boil water for your tea plus some gloriously eccentric teapots. We had a fantastic stay and some truly delicious food in surrounding restaurants. The art exhibition at the local jail was an unexpected gem to find and well worth a visit. The air con worked well, we did have shampoo and enough towels and the bed was very comfortable. You have a carafe of water in the room, some delicious chocolates, a fridge if you want it, a coffee maker and a hairdryer. The only addition I would say is a small safe for belongings such as passport. Had a wonderful stay.
