La Mirande: historic boutique hotel and restaurant in Avignon

room at la mirande avignon

La Mirande is a hotel and restaurant located in an restored mansion at the foot of the Palais des Papes in the heart of Avignon. It is a timeless refuge that provides a dreamy, relaxing and authentic experience. The hotel is named after the famous room in the Palais des Papes, La Mirande, where the Pope’s representatives once held receptions for the city’s notables and visiting high-ranking officials.  The 18th century interior that was in fashion during the Age of Enlightenment was recreated when La Mirande opened its doors as a hotel-restaurant in 1990.

Each of the hotel’s 26 rooms has a unique décor that harkens back to its history but at the same time integrates modern technology and conveniences. Recreations of 18th century wallpaper, chairs and tables provide guests with a sense of the historic significance of this mansion.

La Mirande’s restaurant offers an intimate atmosphere with a carefully developed menu filled with organic products. It features a fresh and creative cuisine, with a Provençal touch.  In winter, guests can warm themselves by the crackling fireplace while in warmer weather the terrace and garden provide an oasis of calm.

Every Tuesday and Wednesday nights (on request for private events), another table is laid in the basement of La Mirande, a chef ’s table that can host up to fourteen guests and provides modern cuisine in a medieval setting. Every afternoon, in the glass-covered patio or on the terrace, a buffet of home-made, 100% organic pastries are prepared along with organically grown tea and espresso coffee for tea time.

La Mirande also offers thematic packages around wine, gastronomy and culture. For offers and deals, visit their website.
