We arrived to be meet by Jean Marie on a Sunday ,only to find out everything was shut we had just flown from Canada /UK so
Jean Marie gave us a bottle of Wine and Shared Champagne with us and sent us to s lovely Pizza restaurant that was open at 7 pm .The accommodation was basic but we knew that ,the place was clean comfortable
The garden is wonderful and so was the pool so much so our last day we hung out at the pool and watched Rafa win his French Open tennis ,all in French ..
We are now heading to Aix en Provence ,,,,,if you like eclectic
Places Jean Marie’s is for you ,
A fantastic host (Jean Marie) introduced us to his Tomatoes, which were the best we've ever had! The flat is above the host's residence but has total privacy. It had everything we could have wanted and excellent sound-proofing which was needed as the raised railway line runs along the bottom of the property.
A major feature is the excellent private in-ground pool with sole access for the flat residents that sits in a large manicured private walled garden. A car is essential here as there are no shops nearby but there is easy on-street car parking. The free park & drive is at the end of the street (about 0.5Km away) which runs a 15 minute service (every 15 mins) into the centre of Avignon. The return bus stops at 10pm. However, there is excellent paid parking in the centre of the city for the more adventurous tourist.
A great location for exploring Avignon City. When we were there it was extremely hot and there were some problems with the air-conditioner which the attentive Jean-Marie has probably fixed already. We will definitely return.
The apartment was just perfect for what we needed, clean spacious and well equipped. The bed was comfy, and while there was just one air con unit in the kitchen it was powerful enough to cool the bedroom too. There is a private veranda for sole use of the guests, the pool is clean and there is plenty of shade if you want it. The owner of the apartment was really friendly and brought us lunch one lunchtime as well as giving us produce from his own vegetable patch! They have several cats, one of which became rather attached to us, so if you hate cats it might not be the place for you.
