The address to sleep in Avignon en luxe. It's located literally in the shadow of the palace, and stepping inside feels more like entering an aristocrat's château than a hotel, with oriental rugs, gold-threaded tapestries, marble statues and oil paintings everywhere you look. Rooms are equally opulent, and the best overlook the interior garden where afternoon tea is served.
Its renowned restaurant, Le Marmiton offers cooking classes (from €90).
Please note that the restaurant is open from Thursday to Monday, and upon request, the hosts can prepare evening meals on Tuesday and Wednesday. A tea room is open everyday.
