I booked our stay online. The proprietor e-mailed me back promptly with the 'annex' option for two adults and two eight year old children.

Avignon is a lovely town with narrow winding streets. The taxi driver knew of the hotel immediately and took us there. A quick drive from the TGV station.

The hotel's location is very nice. It is just around the corner from the beaten path. The town square, which is a block away, has a wonderful carousel for the children. We walked all over the old city with ease.

The proprietor also suggested restaurants and talked extensively with our car rental company in French, helping us immensely with a computer glitch.

We went up a narrow winding staircase to our very roomy apartment. A full kitchen, full bathroom (toilet in a different room than the bathtub) a large dining area where there are two twin beds or daybeds and one room separated by antique french doors with a queen bed.

It was clean and quaint. In the morning a nice breakfast of bread, jam, coffee and hot chocolate was hung on our door.

We really liked it there and would stay there again without any hesitation.

Wonderful, romantic break.
Set in the heart of Avignon (but far enough away from the main square to avoid crowds/ noise).
Superb interiors and superb breakfast.
Excellent recommendations from the proprieters regarding restaurants/ cafes etc.
Cute private terrace we weren't expecting..

Just be careful if you don't have SATNAV - it was extremely diffficult to locate due to the quaint inner citadel road system and one way streets.

Other than that - go there!
Honeymoon/ second honeymoon - they light tea lights on the stone courtyard and steps!!
We opened the window one night and smooth jazz came wafting through from somewhere...it was fab
Wonderful...

A stay at this guest house is just wonderful. I cannot say enough good things about it.

The location just a few steps behind the Palais des Papes is extremely good.

The rooms are great, Francoise and Jean-Michel are very friendly, breakfast is excellent and their recommendations of restaurants were excellent. You should try Les 5 Sens!!

Interested in antiqes..... just ask Francoise for good advices and take the bus to Villeneuve Avignon Saturdays morning until 13.

If you are looking for a real nice and quiet base from which to explore Avignon I highly recommend it.

I loved La Banasterie! We stayed in an annex, not the main property, so I am not sure how it compares exactly. The owners were very friendly and helpful, the room was great, the breakfast just wonderful, and the location was very convenient. I would absolutely recommend it.

We stayed at La Banasterie in early Oct. 2006 and found this ideally located charming small hotel to be a great experience and one of the favorite hotels of our trip. Chocolates in the reception area at all times, fruit and chocolates in our tastefully decorated room upon arrival, candles on the stairs and wonderful breakfasts all made this a place we would certainly return to. Jean Michel was most helpful in recommending excellent restaurants and anything else we needed.
