“Charming hotel with great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

Pros

(1) Dinner was fantastic. About 60 euros for degustation menu by a one-star Michlin chef was great value. His cooking was fantastic. Better than more expensive restaurants in Paris. Wonderful sitting outdoors underneath the stars.
(2) Nice breakfast buffet
(3) Room was big
(4) Price was reasonable

Cons
(1) Building and grounds nothing to shout about

A very nice property in a charming village. Our late autumn visit was a perfect time to enjoy the area without crowds. Village is a nice walk from Avignon, but there is lots to see right in the village as well. Hotel services were great - and the room was fantastic. Hotel staff were very friendly. The restaurant was probably the best we have ever dined at in terms of quality. Wine steward and service were unparalleled. We chose to be surprised by the chef for dinner and it really added to the experience. The flavours were truly unique. Cannot wait until our next visit.

Room Tip: Consider a room with a terrasse / patio.

Villeneuve is a 5 minutes from Avignon and has all the charm of a small town, which serves as a base to visit a very touristic city as Avignon and its surroundings’ villages. The hotel LE PRIEURÉ is a wonderful place to rest with its beautiful garden, large swimming pool a tennis court, a lovely and romantic place. In the summer you can enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet in the garden (try the delicious jams and natural honey) and, of course, a gourmet dinner with a great wine from Chatenueuf du Pape, my favorite.

If you cross the bridge EDUARD DELADIENE you will be in Avignon. You can park in any of the multiple sites along THE BOULEVARD DE L'OULLE, they are the best places to park in Avignon. From most of them you can see the bridge ST. BENEZET which linked Avignon and Villenueve in medieval time, and you can enter through the gates of the city to visit the Palace of the Popes and the rest of the city.

After breakfast you should not miss the food market every thursday, at the PLACE DAVID CHARLES, full of regional products like fresh cheeses, fruits, vegetables, salami, local olive paste call TAPENADE and much more. Early in the morning there are few people and around 11 am it is full of locals carrying a basket plenty of great food for lunch. On Saturday morning the market changes to antiques all day and many people from the surrounding towns takes a chance to find a wonderful antic piece of furniture to take home.

In Villenueve you can buy newspapers, magazines and maps at LA MAISON DE LA PRESSE on the main street - RUE DE LA REPUBLIQUE. There are two excellent boucheries, one at the beginning of the street and the other at number 41, in both of them you can find delicious pates, regional products, wine, succulent meat and juicy toasted chickens to take home. Also if you go to the end of the street with Rue POUZARAQUE you can find the Boutique Moulin a Huile with natural olive oil products like creams and soaps.

From the main square you can get to RUE DU FORT MONTEE and if you walk up to the end into ST ANDRE LE FORT, you could see a nice view of the river and Avignon.

We had dinner there for my partners birthday. I was stoked the minute I walked in. The place was so beautiful especially the garden. The waiting staff were professional and helpful. The food and wine was amazing! We had a great night! My partner and I have been to many 5 star restaurants. I loved this one the most!

Very lovely hotel in all ways. The village is everything you hope a small village complete with butcher shops, boulangeries, may be like. A number of nice walkable restaurants. The hotel in more detail:.
From the decor to the desk personnel in particular Maud...to the grounds--there was not the slightest irritation. First class dining room. Refined and beautiful hotel. On sunday morning we could hear the music from the nearby church, while sitting on gravel stone patio looking at garden. Perfect.


I cannot express enough that the village is far lovelier than the city which has cigarette buts--tons of tourists. We lucked out when we could not get a reservation at hotel d europa and came to le prieure instead. I couldn't get out of the cuty fast enough both times we were there. I'd move to the village where le prieure is, forever.

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Le Prieure. The location is very tranquil, what you would expect the place being a former monastry. Visiting Avignon is easy by taking the bus (every 20 minutes) or taxi. The garden is beautiful. Staff was very helpful and well-trained. After we returned home we discovered a charge on our bill for drinks we didn't order. Our e-mail asking for a refund was answered at short notice and sincere apologies were made and the refund granted straight away. The restaurant is awarded 1 Michelin-star, well deserved ! We had dinner at the terrass of the restaurant: a marvellous experience, delicious food and perfect service. Only tip would be to pay a little more attention to the maintenance of the tenniscourts, though we enjoyed playing tennis over there anyhow.

We stayed here for one night in mid July as a group of 4 (including two 13 year old boys). We had gorgeous, large rooms with a lovely big balcony overlooking the swimming pool. The shady grounds are very relaxing with plenty of places to sit down and take in the ambiance. There are a couple of tennis courts and a large swimming pool, which the boys really enjoyed.

Dinner was taken sitting outside and was completely delicious and relaxed. They catered really well for our fussy boys too! Breakfast was an amazing buffet with all sorts of goodies.

The best asset this hotel has, in my opinion, is its staff. Everyone we encountered was helpful, polite and smiley. They all went out of their way to help. The boys' breakfast charges were waived due to the fact that they eat virtually nothing (other places take note!). When we were leaving, I asked the lady on reception if I could buy a bottle of water to take in the car with us. She was unable to do this but instead gave me the large bottle of water that the staff were given and refused any payment.

As we were here en route to a holiday villa, we did not have a chance to explore the village or look around the surrounding area. However we certainly plan to return to this beautiful part of the world and will definitely stay at this hotel again. It was a total pleasure to be there.
