... wifi – good idea but it didn’t work. By now Avignon was SOO busy – full of tourists, artistes and particularly people advertising their acts with post cards, singing and so on. Eventually we heard from the boys and drove round for ages looking for a park. Eventually Terry managed a car park and we walked up to the Palais des Papes square for a great look, drink, boys ate and soaking in the atmosphere was ...
... to any one who likes to explore french quaint villages and the countryside. I've been here 4 weeks now, 6 more to go. It's been great. Of course, not without many challenges, as is life. And hopefully, being here will be a great lifelong growing opportunity. Message me and let me know how you are doing. I'll eat a chocolate croissant in Paris in your honor. ...
... Angela even made chicken soup from the bones of a rotisserie chicken we had. We have bought quite a bit from the various markets which has all been fresh and reasonably priced. Live style here is ideal, hot weather, 24 to 30, plentiful supply of fresh food and wine, friendly people. Most speak English and we are picking up some French. Bob knowing French is an ...
Today we got up a bit later than usual as we only had a 3 1/2 hour drive ahead of us south to the region of Provence. We packed everything up and decided to skip breakfast, instead picking up some food stuffs at the bakery and deli down the road from the hotel so we could picnic along the way. One of the stores we stopped into had cured ham legs hanging from the ceiling along the walls...so many I decided to count them...there were 153. ...
... he remembered why he hated French class and didn't do well in it. I thought that was a bad sign, but it turns out he did pretty well with the other two tasks. There were a few times, however, that he got turned around and I knew where we had to go and he didn't. Most notably was the time he was insisting the bus station was in one direction when I knew that it was in the other. Sometimes I just surprise him (and myself). One added benefit was that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Cloitre Saint Louis Avignon
Great hotel and location
My husband and I spent one night at this hotel last month (Nov. 2003).
It is located at the entrance of the walled city. It was very easy to find since there are signs pointing to all of the hotels. The hotel is very comfortable and clean. I would recommend staying here when visiting Avignon.
We loved this hotel so much we stayed in Avignon an extra night. The staff were so helpful and the pool on the roof was gorgeous. The medieval courtyard was magical, but our room was bang up to date modern, stylish and delightfully air conditioned. Breakfasts were superb and the whole place was spotless. Having spent our first night in Avignon in a ghastly hotel that was not much cheaper, this was heaven.
A so so room in a dull place
This hotel is on one of the uglier streets of Avignon, a city I like a lot. We got a rather large room in the attic of this old monastery and instantly I started to feel claustrophobic. It went from bad to worse when I found out you couldnīt open the windows. Possibly they have better rooms, but I would hesitate before booking a room in this hotel again. On Saturday night the hotelsīs restaurant and bar were closed, so it was all a bit dull.
Serenity at the Cloitre
The setting of this hotel is the picture of serenity just steps from all the tourist attractions of Avignon. This is one of the rare hotels that exceeded it's online pictures. The rooms are huge in comparison to what you get in Paris, the restaraunt was wonderfull, and the pool is a nice break in the late afternoon from a full day of sightseeing. And the staff was very helpfull, friendly and funny. I highly recommend it.
P.S. It is a bit hard to find since it is off of a side street that is a one way street. But there are actually street signs right off of Avenue de Republic to guide you.
Gorgeous hotel in quiet quarter of Avignon perfectly located for exploring the city and surrounding countryside. Friendly staff, great catering, spacious and well furnished rooms.
10 minute walk from Palais and only a 2 minute walk from Eurostar terminal!
This is the hotel you want in Avignon
This hotel was one of the highlights of our trip (my wife and I) to Provence last year: beautiful setting and rooms, amazingly friendly/helpful staff, great breakfast buffet (best we've had anywhere in world) and dining, central location within the walled city, AND BEST OF ALL, a huge, free parking lot adjacent to the hotel...the only one this convenient in the walled city of Avignon. After staying here and checking out the other hotels in the walled city, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.
Amazing architecture, not really hard to find, walking distance to the Palais but it's a walk! Great deal during off season (March). Nice staff.
We stayed at the Clarion for 2 nights in Jan 03. Had some issues finding the place using the directions on their website but it was at night and we were tired. The hotel has no front. Very weired setup but pretty cool once you walk in. We could almost hear/see the kids running down those halls ( I guess the hotel used to be a school ). We stayed in one of the rooms in the new addtion. The room was large but the layout was strange. The room is a rectangler... the bathroom is totally open with no door for privacy when taking a shower. The toilet is on the other side of the room with a door. If you stay around there... make sure to visit O'rileys just down the street. Very nice irish pub.
