We stayed 5 nights in the 1 bedroom apartment on the second floor. The room looked exactly like the picture. It was very charming with a balcony and courtyard on the first level. The bathroom was contemporary with new fixtures and very clean. The bed linens were luxurious and the mattress was comfy. Patrick was an excellent host and handled our transfers from the train station and to the port where our Viking Riverboat was docked at the end of our visit. He took us on some unbelievable excursions around Provence in Orange, Niles and Mt Vontoux. We even visited a winery for a wine tasting. Spending our time with Patrick was like visiting a relative. He is so helpful and always looking out for us. We will definitely stay there again. It was one of the highlights of our month-long European trip.

Room Tip: Room has a kitchenette with refrigerator, electric cook top and microwave. There are bakeries and markets nearby, so it's easy to prepare your own meals. Also wonderful restaurants are just a few steps outside the Inn.

We stayed here on our honeymoon briefly and we will definitely be back. I wish we would have booked more time, as the place was beautiful, romantic, charming and a great place to stay. Our room was huge, with a living room and kitchen. We were walking distance to everything in Avignon. There is a market right down the street with the freshest produce I have ever seen in my life. It looked like something out of a movie. This is where you want to visit in France.

Aux Augustins was in a fantastic location and the owners were just lovely and so helpful. The rooms were lovely, clean and comfortable. It was so easy to walk around the whole town from here, we left our car parked just outside the walls and didn't have to use it at all. Highly recommend staying here and we would definitely stay here again!

My husband and I took a 5 week "around the world" honeymoon, and we stayed at a lot of hotels. When our friends and family ask about our favorite places, this one always gets a mention!

We stayed in the "attic" room on the top floor with the private balcony. You know what...its not for everyone. The ceiling slopes at an awkward angle, no fancy lobby, you're not getting housekeeping at the level that you'd get at a luxury hotel, so if you're looking for something like that, this isn't the place for you. If you want something really special with TONS of charm and history, the kind of hotel that you can walk away from feeling like you've had a real Avignon experience...this is it.

Location is great. Avignon is pretty small and quiet (read this review through the lens of a New Yorker who also visited Paris and Tokyo on this crazy honeymoon), and everything is within easy distance from this hotel. There's a little bakery down the street that is just incredible. I miss those fresh croissants every day. There's also a great grocery store very nearby, and my husband and I had an incredible day just lounging around the hotel and eating the amazing treats we found at the store!

If we go back to Avignon, there's no way we'd stay anywhere but here! And book direct for best rates!

Dear guests, it's exactly what I would like to say to each guest who makes a request or a booking for Autour du Petit Paradis or Aux Augustins. It is not an hotel with all services but you can get an authentic and great stay. With our guesthouse dating back to the 13rd-14th century, we are steeped in history, charm and character. We are happy to know that we were able to make you feel at home ! It is important for us to be able to follow our guest from his arrival to departure. As you said, the best deal is to book directly with our official & secure website. Since a few months, we can organize transfers,half day tours or full day tours as private chauffeured excursion through our official website for a good deal in Avignon . We are looking forward to your return to our house.

The best experience! Patrick was so lovely and helpful! We spent 4 nights in room 9, which had a view of the inner courtyard. Part of the room had walls from an scientific convent! Our room also had le petit kitchen for cooking which was nice because we were there over Christmas! We loved Avignon as a base during this time! There was an outdoor mark across from the hotel on Friday. I got my hair shampooed and blow dry at a beauty shop next to a barber shop on the square across from the hotel- very good! And so wonderful after 6 days of travel by car from Normandy!
I recommend this hotel inside the ancient walls of Avignon with the highest regard! Patrick calls it a guesthouse and indeed it is, quiet and safe and wonderful!
