About Colin Philippe

Still in my forties, I enjoy travelling and meeting different people and culture. I am keen on history , architecture, sports but also food and wine. This is why I left Brussels to settle in Provence twenty years ago. I love to share this fascinating city with people.

Colin Philippe purchased this apartment in 2010

Lovely apartment; gracious host

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this lovely 1 bedroom apartment a very short walking distance from the Palais des Papes. It is exactly as pictured in the photographs. Avignon is a wonderful and picturesque little city that is the perfect home base for traveling throughout southwestern France. Philippe, the owner, is mentioned many times in all of the reviews of this apartment and the glowing words are all true. He picked us up and delivered us back to the train station at the beginning and end of our stay. When we arrived, after dropping our bags at the apartment, he took us on a walking tour of the neighborhood and made sure we knew where we could buy groceries, get coffee, etc. He also gave us several excellent restaurant recommendations. In short, he couldn't have been nicer or more gracious. We had a great time in Avignon and all of Provence and I heartily recommend this apartment to anyone visiting the area.

Very good position

  • 5 of 5

The apartment in the old part of Avignon was near to all popular tourist attractions. All necessary shops were nearby. The apartment was well equipped with everything you could need. Phillipe was kind enough to pick us up and return us to the station. He took us around the local area showing us all of interest, we appreciated it very much. I recommend it.

Comfortable, well-equipped and good position

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was excellent - very comfortable beds and well equipped. We especially liked the area around it - off the tourist track, around the corner from a lovely square with good restaurants and a flea market on Sunday morning. The street was quiet and we could walk everywhere. It is also very close to a free parkng area just outside the city walls. Our host, Philippe was great - he picked us up from the TGV station and gave us lots of information and showed us around. We would highly recommend this place.

Avignon Jewel

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Avignon. As I read over the previous reviews about this wonderful apartment, I don't know what is left to be said. The apartment is delightful, clean, well equipped and well appointed. All you need for a cozy stay in an incredible city that is rich in history and charm. The location of the apartment is ideal in every way. Quiet street yet just a couple minutes walk to the city center. Philippe could not have been a better host to us. He was more than accommodating, including a walking tour, and transfers to and from the train station. If your plans in France include Avignon, (and they should) a stay at this apartment would be the icing on the cake.

A Fabulous Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment for 5 nights this October. Located in a very old building on a narrow, cobbled street within the city walls, it combines the best of the old and new. You climb a narrow, winding stone staircase to access the apartment and emerge into a space that is beautifully and thoughtfully designed in terms of color, lighting, quality of furnishings and creative use of space -- a really classy place. The owner, Philippe, has paid attention to every detail. While some rental units have cheap or flimsy kitchen supplies, bedding and towels, everything in this apartment was of high quality-and very clean. As guests, we felt that Philippe wanted to make sure we had what we needed and that the space was both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. We both suffer some back pain; because of this we are sensitive to the quality of the bed when we travel. We appreciated the excellent mattress and were pain-free during our stay.

We loved the location of this apartment. It was easy to walk everywhere within the walls as well as to the free parking for our rental car just outside the walls. Finally, what makes this place so special beyond the space itself is a host who welcomes you, takes the time to orient you, and is available to help if you need him. This was so helpful to us. With this booking, you will get a unique and lovely apartment plus a terrific host. Go for it--you'll be glad you did.

Avignon Delight

  • 5 of 5

Previous reviews of this property had raised my expectations of our host Philipe and his apartment. Suffice it to say, we were not disappointed. The apartment is comfortable, well-designed, and has everything you could need for your stay. We were particularly pleased to have more than the bare minimum of everything - towels, bed linens, pillows, dishes and cutlery, etc. The washing machine was a welcome addition. There are plenty of shops and restaurants within a five-minute walk.

What can we say about Philipe that hasn't already been said. He is the consummate host! He met us at the apartment, gave us a briefing on everything, then took us on a walking tour - pointing out boulangers, grocers, restaurants, and landmarks. The tourist information, maps, and suggested points of interest that Philipe provided were very helpful as we toured the area.

Thank you Philipe for a wonderful stay in your lovely apartment. We can't wait to return to Avignon.
