Day 9 Avignon 28/8/12First thing today is to retrieve my new best friends bag from the train station where I handed it in so that I can swap bags with him on the way down to Nice. Next - something to wear - last night we saw a shop with some nice things and the window and thought we check it out. BIG MISTAKE.. they had some lovely things and were …
L'Isle sur la Sorgue is an island which was created by diverting the Sorgue river with canals. At one time there were 70 water wheels in operation, for the mills to grind grain and olives. Today there are only 9 remaining. It is called the Venice of Provence, a bit of a stretch, but it is a picture-perfect place. The river's source is 4 km away, called Fontaine Vaucluse, a deep, cold spring. The water is a constant 55F. It's very interesting to see ...
... to bring my suit along. By the time we finished at the spa, the sun was out. The 4 of us went for a lovely walk down by the Rhone and then finished with more rose for happy hour in our garden. We had a group dinner at La Galoubet, a very quaint restaurant not far from the hotel. There was no menu in advance as they use whatever is fresh that day and it was fantastic. For an appetizer, I had the pasta which looked ...
This was the first of several short stop offs that we will be doing during the trip. The point of this particular one was to visit Pont du Gard, which is the site of an ancient Roman aqueduct. The aqueduct was built to transport millions of litres of water from one town to another. The bit that you can see is only a small section of the original, which was kilometres long. You can walk along the bottom level from one side to the other, and there are steps on both sides that lead up to ...
... the bulls would have been fought. We walked up the big hill which has a tower on top, it is one of the highest places in the area so you could see around the whole city and surrounding area.

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.
