Our House

Our House

“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.

In 2024, Les Jardins de Baracane obtained the Green Key internation label after a large audit and as a reward that demonstrates our contribution and commitment to sustanaible tourism.

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.

Our rooms

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 ! 1/2

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. Neil & Eileen, USA 1/2

Perfekt !

Das Beste, was man in Avignon als Paar finden kann. Tolles Zimmer mit Klimaanlage. Supernetter Gastgeber. Olivier ist immer da und hilft. Gutes Frühstück im wunderschönen Garten inmitten der Altstadt von Avignon. Zu Fuß ist man in 1 Minute im Herzen der Altstadt. Kostenloser Parkplatz in 3 Minuten Entfernung. Wirklich empfehlenswert Anna - Berlin

The very best way to enjoy your special city

Thank you Olivier and Laurence for the perfect stay in your beautiful home. It’s obvious that you enjoy showing guests the very best way to enjoy your special city. We especially enjoyed our Babylon Suite and the garden with the pool! (and of course your cat too)! The perfect start of our two week vacation in France. You helped us immediately slow down, relax and enjoy your amazing country! Luke and Patricia, USA, summer 2022

I highly recommend Les Jardins 1/3

… to anyone visiting the area. We couldn't have asked for better hosts or a better place to stay than Les Jardins de Baracane. Laurence and Olivier were so charming and thoughtful. From our welcome on the first day to the interest they took in our comfort and visit to Provence, they were just lovely. They took a genuine interest and made helpful suggestions when we told them about our plans each day, which allowed us to experience things we wouldn't have found on our own. Hanaa & Stu - Canada 1/3

Danke, Olivier und Laurence !

Alles! Der Empfang von Olivier und Laurence war sehr herzlich. Die Gastgeber sind jederzeit verfügbar und haben gut Tipps. Das Chambres d‘hôtes ist perfekt ausgestattet und es hat an nichts gefehlt. Wir empfehlen es unseren besten Freuden weiter. Danke, Olivier und Laurence ! Anna - Suisse (booking)

Wonderful place !

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

Gorgeous oasis in Avignon

We stayed for 3 wonderful nights. Walkable from train station and close to tourist office but very quiet and private feeling. You can walk easily to all major attractions. Lots of cafes and shopping just around the corner. Olivier and Lauren are very gracious hosts. Always available to help but very respectful of guests privacy. The gardens are just lovely and available to sit in at anytime. Comfortable bed,great shower - Kathleen - Sept 22- USA

Super hosts 1/2

Our hosts, Olivier and Laurence, charmed us with their warm hospitality. We enjoyed spacious accommodations in an intimate setting of considerable historical and artistic interest, a relaxed and friendly welcome, lush gardens filled with unexpected surprises, a hearty breakfast with many choices, modern bathrooms supplied with luxurious towels and toiletries, and, above all, hosts that were born to welcome and care for their guests. Pamela & Edward, Canada, (tripadvisor) 1/2

Wonderful service and location

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

We never wanted to leave 2/2

With the ancient buildings on all sides and trees canopying the garden, we loved sitting by and in the pool each afternoon, and I did my fair share of taking naps in the beautiful shade. 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

A hidden treasure !

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

Hidden beauty in Provence !

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

Extremely friendly and helpful host

We stopped in to see if the B&B had a room for us. Olivier was extremely friendly and helpful. We were unable to stay but Olivier went above and beyond and helped us find another place to stay in Avignon. Thank you so much Olivier. Mike, US

Super hosts 2/2

…historical house, lovely garden, spacious comfortable rooms. One memorable touch: when the cold wind of the mistral rose up unexpectedly (by us), Olivier offered to lend one his sweaters. Our stay chez Olivier et Laurence helped to turn a pleasant weekend in Avignon into a cherished memory. Thank you. Pamela & Edward, Canada, (tripadvisor)

Thank you again, Olivier and Laurence ! 2/3

There are only five rooms, so there is an intimate feel to staying here. The room was beautifully decorated and spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The pictures of the rooms accurately show their size. I mention this because so many times pictures shown on hotel sites are taken in a way that make the rooms look bigger and nicer than they are. Here, the room is not only as nice as the picture, it's somehow even better. Hanaa & Stu - Canada 2/3

Hidden, quaint, beautiful and relaxing

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

Much welcomed relaxing stepback in time

Our stay at les Jardins de Baracane was like stepping back in time into the walled medieval city of Avignon. Situated on a narrow street, we received such a warm greeting from our hosts that we quickly forgot the difficulty we had finding it. The garden offered a relaxing respite from the bustle of the popular tourist destination, with little suprises at every turn of the path. Breakfast was wonderful with plenty of fresh offerings. It was difficult to say goodbye. Holly - USA

Secret gardens and an upscale caste

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. Esther - USA

The place to stay in Avignon

We chose this property for our minimoon due to the pretty garden and pool area. When we arrived we were blown away! It’s absolutely stunning. The host, Olivier, was outstanding and really looked after us. He really cares about creating a special guest experience. The location is unbeatable too; quiet and peaceful yet really near to all the delightful restaurants that Avignon has to offer and the centre of the city. Recommend 100% - Maryam - UK

Ligging: perfect !

Rustig en toch midden in de stad op 200 m van een gezellig plein Tuin: heel mooi, veel schaduw en rustig Alles met veel smaak ingericht Alles wat t reizende hart begeert Beter kan t geloof ik niet! Heel aardige mensen, veel goeie tips voor Avignon Volgende keer in Avignon zeker weer hier 👍🏼 - Marielle - Germany

I highly recommend les Jardins 3/3

The courtyard garden is beautifully well kept and very relaxing. It has a cozy feel with its paths, little tables and chairs, and comfortable lounge chairs around the pool. There is a well-appointed kitchen with complimentary drinks and snacks. I would recommend booking directly with Les Jardins rather than a third party site. The rates are better and the cancellation poiicy is just as flexible. Thank you again, Olivier and Laurence ! Hanaa & Stu (Canada) 3/3

Lovely to stay again !

Lovely to stay with you again, with such a warm welcome as always. Thank you for your great hospitality and help. Hope to return. Rob & Carol - UK

A greatful surprise

Thank you so much to Olivier and his Wife for their amiability. Since we arrive to Les Jardins de Baracane everything was a greatfull surprise. The house, the garden but very specially the human atention every moment. A lovely place with a very cute atmosphere. Best regards. Carmen and Rafa. From north of Spain, Santander

Perfect hosts !

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 (walkinn)

Relaxing long weekend

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 (guests book)
