About the Property

Unique Loft With One Bedroom, 75sqr Meters, Terrace, Parking, And Quiet

Located in the heart of the medieval city wall, this apartment is in one of the most famous buildings of Avignon, a classified historical monument from the 14th century. It is only a few minutes' walk to the Popes palace, just near the walking zone, restaurants, shops and the best place to buy food in town: 'les halles' the indoor farmers market.(address is 1 rue du crucifix, avignon)
If you want to live the French life where you can walk anywhere, this is the place. It is easily accessible with private parking, close to all private tours from the city and the train station is walking distance to the apartment.
There is a large private courtyard below with big trees and it is very quiet, it almost feels like you are not in the city at all. It is located on the top floor, with elevator. The views from up there of the city churches, monuments and the Popes palace is stunning. There is private parking available only 100 meters from the apartment, a rare luxury inside the wall.
The flat is 57 square metres inside and 18 square metres covered terrace (total of 750 square feet). Honestly a terrace is fantastic in town, and you will probably spend most of your time there.Perfect for a couple, but possibly for 4 or 5 adults.
Double panel windows, hard wood floors, with floor heating makes it very comfortable for a long stay in the winter if you want to try the provencal life (porcini's truffles, game, and root vegetables) for a while....
The bed is a top of the line queen size 160 x 200 long, and there is a comfortable fold-out couch as well that can sleep 2.(double bed size 140 x 200), and a single bed on the mezzanie as well. A spacious bathroom with tub/shower, sink and washing machine. Kitchen has all appliance you need to cook and also a dishwasher. The main room has a large flat screen tv and sofa, a dinning area, and a beautiful wrought iron stairway that takes you to the wood mezzanine.On the terrace there is a lounge space and a dinning area for 4. On the loft you'll have the bed, a desk and storage. Phone is free anywhere in the world and internet is either wi-fi or with cable, fiber optic cable connected so very fast. The building is very secure with his double gated entrance and reinforced doors.
This is truly a unique place in avignon, often people stop and take picture of the building. The incredible beauty of a 14th century monument with all confort and modern equipment....

Avignon is centraly located in Provence and everyhting is less than one hour drive: Luberon, Saint Remy de Provence, Pont du Gard, Uzes, Arles, Isle sur Sorgues, Les Beaux, ect...Not to mention that the city who was the cultural capital of Europe in 2005 is fabulous and rich with history. The beach is also not far, lots of possibility and fun things to do; we are from Avignon and we'll be happy to help you anytime. My husband is a Sommelier (wine specialist) and he organises Wine tour in the region if you need. We, of course, love food and will give you the best tips on restaurants.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a family of five, my name is Fabienne, I am French, born and raised in Avignon. My husband Kelly is Americain and we live in France for many years now...We currently live in Les Angles with our 3 daughters, just accross the Rhone river, only 5 mn away from the city of Avignon.

Why the Owner Chose Avignon, France:
Many years ago this building was the Art school of Avignon where I use to go after school, so it was very special to me. It was remodeled in 2000 into private appartments and the school relocated. When we visited we fell in love with it! it was a unique opportunity. We remodeled the inside to our personnal taste in the winter of 2012/2013. Avignon is very central in Provence, and we have no doubt that our guests would like to enjoy the real French city life, walk everywhere in town and at the same time being able to take their car for nearby seightseen.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Of course parking in the city is a luxury and we like that, but the covered terrace is what we loved the most. It is protected from the wind, and can be used all year around. The park below makes it very quiet, a unique benefit in town. I was thinking of guests coming up with luggages, and I thought the elevator is a must! not many ancient building would have it. The location is perfect, easily accessible when you enter the city and walking distance to everything. I also like the privacy of this place, no one can see you accross the street, a rare thing in any city as we all know.
