About Woody Halsey
We lived in Avignon from 2011 to 2017 so our children could learn another culture and another language, loving every minute. Then we returned to the US for the twins' final years of high school. Woody is a retired school administrator; Pauline, a doctor and writer.
Woody Halsey purchased this House in 2012
Why Woody Halsey chose Avignon
We chose Avignon for its sunny climate, rich cultural opportunities and convenient location. The Marseille airport is just an hour away by car or train. Paris only about 4 hours by fast train. All the famous attractions of Provence are easily accessible by car. And we chose the house for its old world charm, its warm and welcoming spirit, its natural light and its perfect location.
What makes this House unique
Walk to everything in Avignon! Restaurants, markets, museums, theaters, art cinema and shopping. To say nothing of the Papal Palace and the Pont d'Avignon. And all the wineries and tourist attractions of Provence are within a short drive.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
House with old world charm, just minutes walking to the city center.
We enjoyed our stay at this property. It has 3 AC units in each bedroom which was great since we stayed during the heat wave. Good location in quiet neighborhood. Woody is a good host. He responded quickly to all our inquiries.
All went well -logistics well communicated
Enjoyed our stay
A wonderfully quiet and elegant house
My family and I enjoyed this charming early 20th century French house which has been finely restored and is much cherished by its owners. It is in a marvellously quiet location away from the bustle of the centre of Avignon, and yet just a short walk to all its main attractions. There is a tramway nearly finished at the end of the street which will make the centre even quicker to reach. The owners have written a most comprehensive and helpful manual about all the essential details of house as well as giving excellent recommendations for shops, restaurants and activities of interest in Avignon and nearby. Negotiating the booking with the owner Woody was easy and when we encountered some problems about our travel dates he was most kind.
Gorgeous house with great facilities
We stayed a week in May. The house was amazing, clearly loved and cherished by the owners. Everything was of a high standard, ensuring our comfort and relaxation.
It is an easy stroll to the old city, the Gare and every shop to support our daily needs. This also made it a good spot to launch day trips to on the bus or train - our party went to Arles, Pont Du Gard and Saint Rémy En Provence — all easy to do and highly recommended.
The notes were thorough, and the recommendations all proved sound. We added some restaurant suggestions in the region.
Woody was prompt to respond to emails.
A thoroughly enjoyable stay, thank you
Thanks, Denise. We hope you can return next year!

Turn of the Century Charm
This is a convenient property for exploring Avignon as well as the region of Provence. The townhome has 3 nice sized bedrooms, a large kitchen and dining area and a good sized living room. We especially enjoyed the outdoor patio space for late afternoon down time with regional wine. There is a plethora of restaurants at many price points within walking distance.
We found everything very clean and in order upon arrival, even meeting the neighbors who were helpful to us.
Thanks, Pam. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you can come back next year!

Avignon is in the heart of Provence and the Côtes du Rhone wine region. It is most famous for the Palace of the Popes and the summer theater festival; but offers restaurants, museums, art movies, hikes, antiquing and concerts (including Opera) year-round. St. Remy de Provence, Les Baux, Arles and the Camargue beaches and bird preserve are all nearby to the south. The Roman theater in Orange is an easy drive to the north, as are Chateauneuf du Pape, Vaison la Romaine, Fontaine de Vaucluse and well-known wine towns such as Seguret and Rasteau. The incredible Roman aqueduct, the Pont du Gard, is just across the river to the east, as is our favorite family run winery.
