Location: The Saint Antoine Chapel is located behind Avenue de la Republique, central axis of Avignon. You have the advantage of being close to the shops without the noise of traffic. From the rosette of the loft of the Chapel, side kitchen, the sight is cleared on "his big sister", the Church Saint Didier, built at the same time. His bells sound a lovely melody three times a day, the same ritual for centuries. History of this unusual building: This church built for the order of the Antonines served as a refuge to Benoit XIII who was the last pope of Avignon. It was desecrated to the French revolution and in 1970 became an Institute of American Universities. Purchased in 2013 by individuals, 3 years of work has transformed into a beautiful house with several housing including a conference ...Location: The Saint Antoine Chapel is located behind Avenue de la Republique, central axis of Avignon.

It is an excellent place, indeed. Plenty of room. Confortable. High level for a reasonable price. Marianne gave us an interesting explanation about the chapel history with plenty of information about places to visit. We strongly recommend it for families.
