TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel d'Angleterre Avignon
The Hotel is in a nice boulevard with plenty of trees and is just a few minutes walk from the main street. The rooms are smallish, sparsely furnished and generally old in style. They appear reasonably clean. Breakfast is continental style in the dining room and the food is fresh. The staff are friendly and helpful but appear to speak little English overall.

Monaco was cloudy and grey this morning when we woke. It is November after all. We checked out of the Port Palace Hotel about 10:00 and departed for Provence.

Just thinking about the fact that I'm walking around in cities where people walked in medieval times and saw the same things that I'm seeing now gives me goosebumps. It's very ...
DAY 23 (Saturday May 23) "Livin' like a Local"
This morning we slept in and then got up and headed down the street to visit "Les Halles" (Lay Hall) Les Halles is a large indoor market with every kind of food and drink you can imagine. Fresh seafood: shrimp, clams, oysters, octopus, bakeries with pastries, pizza, fresh meats from a butcher, coffee, wine, beer ...
... Kyle got chicken in a mushroom sauce with green beans (he LOVED it) and Hannah got steak marinated in the herbs of Provence and potatoes (even though we ordered tagliatelles, which are noodles). We also split a Dame Blanche (ice cream sundae).
When we returned home, Kyle was craving some wine. We went to ask the front desk where we could go to buy wine. The French-only lady asked "rouge, blanc, rose?" and we told her rouge. She said "Ah" ...
