just a stone’s throw from the Pope’s Palace in Avignon
Within the ramparts, in a district set between Porte-de-la-Ligne, Place-des-Carmes and Place-Carnot, sought-after for its peace and quiet, far from the bustling shopping streets, whilst but a stone’s throw from all businesses and cultural activities.
The town of Avignon has an airport, two stations, including one for TGV trains, and a very recent, much-appreciated tramway which helps to reduce traffic in the historic centre and provides links to the suburbs beyond the city walls.
The five flats
A corridor leads from the street to a stairwell, illuminated via windows overlooking the courtyard on every landing. It provides access to a single, 30 m² flat on the ground floor, two flats, spanning 32 and 39 m², on the first floor and another two flats, spanning 31 and 40 m², on the second floor.
Each flat comprises a living room, a bedroom, a fully fitted kitchen and a shower room with a separate toilet. The 32 m² flat on the first floor has its own 34 m² terrace.
Meticulous restoration works have been carried out throughout the building and although all the floors have been covered with contemporary travertine stone tiles, numerous old features, like the stairway’s railings and its wooden handrail, have been preserved and enhanced.
These five pieds-à-terre, in the midst of a town which was home to nine popes outside of Rome during the 14th century, are now highly sought-after by visitors wishing to explore the French “Florence” as Avignon is known.
The town which, amongst other things, has hosted the world’s biggest theatre festival every July for three-quarters of a century, also provides easy access to Provence. So, after having danced on the bridge of Avignon as in the well-known French song, it is also possible to explore its palace(s) and numerous chapels, to climb its ramparts and to sail on the river Rhône to see more of Provence’s marvels.
This building will, therefore, delight not only its guests, but also its owners who will be able to take full advantage of its wealth of accommodation facilities.
