The first B&B in Avignon (created in 2001), La Banasterie is a beautiful 16th century residence, 50 meters from the Pope's palace and two steps from the Pont Saint-Bénézet which is one of the most romantic places in Avignon. With chocolate, red ochre or Naples yellow colored walls, the Guest House La Banasterie offers 2 rooms and 3 suites with refined décor, appreciable comfort and 2 apartments with full kitchens. We have a library, internet lounge with computer and free acces and depending on the rooms you choose, a shaded terrace, balcony or a patio with fountain. La Banasterie is a warm atmosphere, accentuated at night by the lights and candles you can enjoy comfortably in armchairs and sofas. When Françoise and Jean-Michel lived in Paris, Francoise was a famous voice on a radio station and Jean Michel radio station's producer. They now live in Provence where they practice the" Art of living". Chocolate lovers, they gave their rooms the name of "grands crus", they will share their passion in this House where the cacoa tree is the king. The copious breakfasts at La Banasterie are particularly appreciated. Jams, seasonal fruits, pastries, fresh juice, coffee and of course... hot chocolate.

This B&B is absolutely gorgeous. It is located on a quiet cobblestone street, within walking distance of all major tourist attractions, including Le Palais des Papes and Le Pont d'Avignon. The room was well appointed, with chocolates bedside and complimentary soaps and shampoo. The B&B has a lot of character, and I was happy to have discovered such a nice place in the middle of the city. I had a lot of privacy, but the innkeeper was always available if I had questions. Breakfast was copious, and I never left the house hungry. They give you a key, so you can come and go as you please, which was great for staying out late or leaving early. Avignon is a beautiful city full of history, and this B&B follows suit. Do yourself a favor and make sure to stay here next time you are in town!
