Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This charming 1st floor apartment is the top floor of a traditional town house in a street close to the centre of the city inside the medieval walls. A large private terrace (36 sq m, rather than small balcony as is usual) is very hard to find near the centre of town and adds immensely to its attraction. You can enjoy the outdoor lifestyle and it is usual to be able to eat outside year round. It is only a few minutes walk from all the sites and amenities of central Avignon. The street is in a quiet residential area which in Medieval times was the city's Italian quarter.
