Historical Traveler Reviews Le Clos du Rempart Avignon
A Hidden Gem
We recently arrived in Avignon after a terrific but busy 6 days in Paris. Following Aida's meticulous directions we arrived to a warm welcome. Le Clos du Rempart was everything we had hoped, and more. It provided an oasis of charm and tranquility and we immediately felt at home. We stayed in the Saphir Room which is spacious, charming, light, airy and has a lovely view over the internal courtyard. The bathroom is modern, spacious, attractive and spotlessly clean. Breakfasts in the courtyard were very enjoyable with a variety of choices and fresh ingredients. Aida was warm, helpful, engaging but not intrusive. Her suggestions for sightseeing and restaurants were very useful. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay and would warmly recommend it to anyone who enjoys accommodation that is unique and with the personal touch a bed and breakfast offers.
Just back from Avignon...
My parents and I are just back from a week at Le Clos du Rempart in Avignon. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment, which turned out to be a fantastic choice. All of the comforts of home, a great kitchen, comfortable living space and the most wonderful beds!!! The ratings of fellow reviewers speak for themselves, Le Clos du Rempart is truly superb. Aida is lovely-always available with great advice should you need it- but otherwise offers you complete privacy. In summary a wonderful place to stay, a lovely friendly host.
Note: No payment by Credit Card, so you have to pay cash for your stay, this was a litle inconvenient and costly for my parents who had to draw cash from Australia at a charge, however it did not detract from the enjoyment of our stay, just a warning to others.
Beautiful, friendly, calm hotel - recommended
We stayed at Mme Assad's lovely Clos du Rempart this September for 2 nights. There are only 3 rooms which gives a very relaxed and initmate atmosphere but makes booking something of a lottery. The nights we initially wanted weren't available but we changed our plans to stay here based on other reviews and it was well worth it. If you have the flexibility to do likewise, we'd definitely recommend this hotel.
Le Clos du Rempart is a short walk from the Palais des Papes (but nowhere's far in Avignon intra-muros) and on a lovely quiet street. The house has a large secluded courtyard garden with bougainvilla growing up the walls and seats and hammocks to recline in. Breakfast was served here too, on a shady terrace to one side.
The room was very spacious and comfortable, with a beautiful bathroom and excellent shower. Some people might miss a television but it's not that kind of place and if you really wanted to see the news there's a big room off the garden with a set.
Mme Assad made us feel very welcome here and gave us the run of the house. In the hot, sticky weather that we had during our visit the big rooms, great showers and cool gardens were a real boon.
We would definitely go back and recommend this hotel to anyone looking for somewhere calm in a much-frequented town.
A home from home
We stayed with Aida for 6 nights and felt like house guests as opposed to paying ones. The house is clean, comfortable, quiet and spacious. The breakfasts were lovely and we were lucky enough to get Aida to cook an evening meal for us - it was quite wonderful. We will be going back.
We stayed six nights at the Le Clos Du Rempart and it was fabulous. The room was big, comfortable with a wonderful bathroom. Madame Assad could not be more friendly and helpful to her guest. She helped with directions and recommeded wondeful restaraunts. She was very attentive to our needs. Avignon is a great place to base and see provence. Our trip was better than we could have ever expected sixteen days of beautiful scenerey and great food. Thank you Madame Assad for being such a wonderful host.

Beautiful oasis in walled city
Aida Assad, the owner of Le Clos du Rempart in Avignon, takes such care with her home and provides her guests with such a beautiful place to "come home to" after a busy day of seeing the sights in Avignon and the surrounding areas in Provence. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment, which was very comfortable and QUIET. The kitchen is fully equipped for ease in preparing simple meals. Aida thought of everything in making sure all the necessary kitchen tools were included. The living area is nicely decorated and furnished, with a very "airy" feel. The windows open up to a view of a pretty courtyard across the narrow road from the house. And the beds are very comfortable, with sumptuous feathery comforters. Aida makes her guests feel very welcome and is always available for answering questions concerning sights to see or even giving restaurant suggestions. We would recommend Le Clos du Rempart to anyone wanting a true Provence living experience. Thank you, Aida!
Magical Provence with a Mediterranean flavor
This place is magical - a safe haven of comfort and tranquility, only minutes away from the center of throbbing Avignon and the Palais des Papes... but the real difference is in the service, provided entirely and perfectly by Aida, our energetic and dedicated host. PS Do ask Aida to prepare one of those Mediterranean vegetarian dishes for you, as they beat any restaurant treat. And do reserve some time for a "hammoc siesta" in the patio - best time is late afternoon. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Un havre de paix
Nous avons eu un immense plaisir a sejourner au Clos du Rempart, une magnifique batisse de caractere nichee au coeur des remparts d'Avignon, qui a la particularite de vous offrir un calme absolu a 10 minutes a pied seulement du Palais des Papes. La maison, qui comporte deux grandes et belles chambres d'hotes, un appartement et un pation splendide, est decoree avec gout et le plaisir qu'on prend a s'y detendre n'a d'egal que la gentillesse et la disponibilite de notre hote Aida qui sait toujours devancer nos envies. Une adresse exceptionnelle et incontournable pour profiter pleinement de la beaute de la ville.
A lovely paradise in Avignon
I had one of the most wonderful holiday at "Le Clos Du rempart" in Avignon last month.
such a lovely and quiet place to rest and to take the time to do some cultural visits. the house is an old restaured noble house from the 18th century, with a large patio and a garden full of mediteranean plants and trees. i enjoyed taking my "french café with my croissants" in the morning in the sun watching the garden and the water from the fountain.you have a feeling of being in the countryside, but you are in fact close to the famous Walls of Avignon , and 10 minutes walk from the center. the rooms are on the first floor, decorated each one with a lot of attention and charm . Aida, the owner of the house pays attention to every little details to make you feel at home. At night, you can either go out in town for a walk or have a tea in the "african style" mezzanine or by the fireplace in the living room.
Avignon is a beautiful city to visit with it's local markets, museums, theatres and its yearly festival , the historical city of the Popes with it's impressive "palais" and churches. Avignon is also the heart of the South of France : if you have a car don't miss to do the "Route des Vins" some of the best french wines i ever tasted. there are also places to visit like Nimes, Aix en Provence, Marseille, Montpellier and la Camargue , the Luberon ,le Pont Du Guard, La Fontaine de Vaucluse, St Remy en Provence and the Alpilles mountains.
I recommend "Le clos du rempart" to every person who would like to visit the Provence area , or to stay in Avignon for a peaceful moment in a house very well situated in town ,decorated and restaured with very good taste and which offers a high quality service.
A wonderful oasis in Avignon
We spent our first night in Provence at Le Clos du Rempart, before moving on to a rented house. Rue Cremade is a tiny narrow street, that we didn't think we could get our car into, but we did. Don't worry about blocking the road while unloading your bags. If anyone comes from either direction they'll wait patiently. We then moved the car to a parking spot right beside the walls of the city, only a few metres away. The The Clos has a typical Mediterranean style, which means the outside blank wall and plain door gives no indication of the loveliness inside. It's built around a magnificent courtyard, complete with hammock, tiled walls, comfy furniture, lovely garden, and an arbour. Our room was beautifully decorated, with a nicely tiled en-suite bathroom, looking out onto the courtyard below. I took some lovely pictures of the view. Aïda is a most gracious hostess, and also a fantastic chef. She prepared us dinner which we ate under the arbour in the courtyard.(we had arranged that in advance). It was so delicious, it was one of the best meals we had in our month in Provence, which is saying a lot.
