Welcome booklet

Version en français

You are in the historical heart of the city inside the first fortifications of Avenio (old name of Avignon) built under the Roman colonization in the 1st century. These first fortifications were later surrounded in the 13th century by a new construction by the Avignon between 1234 and 1248, of which there are currently some vestiges.

In the 14th century, with the installation of the popes in Avignon, the city was  enlarged again. It was Pope Clement VI who agreed that the new palace of the popes, the liveries cardinalices, the abbeys, convents, and religious buildings of Avignon needed a more effective protection so in 1349, the Pope instructed Juan Fernandez de Heredia to build ramparts. Which were completed in 1359.

The house in which you are located dates from the 17th century. These are (were originally) the former stables of the Grand Hôtel Particulier in front of the south facade of the house overlooking Vernet Street. The wall with the pediment separating the two buildings was built at the beginning of the 20th century.  The quiet house invites you to rest with its bright veranda, peaceful garden and refreshing stone basin. It provides an oasis of tranquility in the heart of the city, close to all the shops, bars and restaurants as well as all artistic, historical and tourist points of interest.

The guest house created in 2016 underwent major renovation in the winter of 2016/2017. The three bedrooms on the first floor were opened for rent in early May 2017. A second phase of work was carried out in the spring of 2018 to add a fourth room located on the ground floor as well as a wine bar with its seating areas around the large fireplace and on the terrace in the garden. Each room is decorated according to a theme of Avignon and in the classic style of the house.
