“Les Jardins de Baracane” are peacefully situated inside the medieval city walls, so guests can explore the Papal City and the famous Pont d’Avignon on foot.
The mansion lies within the walls, just a ten-minute walk from the Palais des Papes and close to the Place des Corps Saints and the Rue des Teinturiers with its famous waterwheels. It is within easy reach of the bustle of the Festival with all its theatres and is surrounded by dozens of churches, chapels and beautiful mansions.
The house is the perfect place for a getaway in a special architectural and cultural environment where history and heritage go hand in hand with elegance.
« An oasis right in the heart of Avignon »
A romantic weekend, a business trip, a family holiday or maybe a city break (with some shopping thrown in, perhaps) ... whatever the reason for your visit, we look forward to welcoming you to our five guest rooms.
Since the property’s garden is its star attraction, we have named the Jardins de Baracane's five rooms after five beautiful gardens... Take a look
We never wanted to leave. From the moment we stepped into the gorgeous house and magical garden, Olivier and Laurence were more than mere hosts; they became fast-friends who took such wonderful care of us and treated us like family who had come for a visit. They provided us with spot-on restaurant recommendations and even invited us to attend an arts festival performance that they hosted in their garden: a delightful experience we will always remember. We loved sitting by and in the pool each afternoon, and I did my fair share of taking naps in the beautiful shade. With the ancient buildings on all sides and trees canopying the garden, the real world seemed so far away - yet all of the treats of Avignon were just out the front door and around the corner. This is one special place, and Olivier and Laurence are special people. Neil & Eileen, USA, july 19
Olivier is a superbe host and the jardins is magical. Great location for exploring Provence. The rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable. XVIIth century house makes for enchanting stay. One of the best places we stayed in France. Carla - USA - June 2019
Best place I have stayed in. Charming, elegant, upscale with beautiful gardens and big pool. Old building renovated with a great eye for design, art and the comfort of the guests. Great big bed in a large room and perfect location in the Old Town near everything but in a quiet street. Will return ! The owners were very sweet, caring and attentive.

It's well located (downtown). It's very quiet. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The big plus is the owner and his wife. They are so nice and so helping. They are always there for you and make sure that you are feeling home. I truly enjoyed my stay. Patrice - Paris - June 2017 (tripadvisor)
Beautiful property tucked into a side street near all the sights in historical central Avignon. The owners are fantastic. Very nice and accomodating. Insisted on helping us with diner reservations. One of, if not the top, location we stayed on our trip. Just wish we had stayed longer. Nick - USA - May 2017 (booking)

The new owners, Olivier and Laurence, were very professional, kind and most considerate of our travel needs. Whatever we needed, they were willing and able to assist. Our stay was outstanding, mostly due to their kindness. We loved everything about this place and can hardly wait to go back again ! Trudy & Howard - USA - May 2017 (booking)
Thank you both so much for this wonderful stay in your house. Beautiful house and amazing garden, a hidden treasure ! Delicious breakfast and very kind reception. All one needs to feel relaxed. We will be back. :-) Anne & Flo - Belgium - livre d'or - avril 2017
Dear Olivier and Laurence, You are the perfect hosts and we thank you very much for making us feel so at home in your beautiful home! We had a fantastic time. We will definitely be back and will recommend Les Jardins de Baracane to everyone at home in London and South Africa (so you might well have a South African 'Marais' visit!😀!) Colette & Duncan - South Africa - April 2017 (walkinn)
Thank you so much for a wonderfully relaxing long weekend : lovely room, the warmest of welcomes and hearty breakfasts... we’d love to have spent a bit longer in the magnificent garden but, unfortunately, time didn’t allow. Another time, perhaps. Agnès & Sylvain - France - March 2017 (guests book)
