Le Prieuré: five star hotel in medieval Avignon

luxury hotel avignon

If you want to stay in a historic luxury hotel in Avignon, Le Prieuré, which underwent extensive renovation in 2007, may be the perfect place for you. The hotel, a member of Relais & Chateaux, is a former convent located in the heart of the medieval town of Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, outside the walls of Avignon. The advantage of staying in Villeneuve-lès-Avignon is that you don’t have to worry about parking or getting in and out of the city when you drive out to explore Arles, Nimes, the Pont du Gard, and Uzes.

Each of the 23 rooms in the hotel features a blend of antique and contemporary styles, along with modern amenities such as a flat-screen TV, Wi-Fi, and air-conditioning. The suites all include a separate sitting room and a private terrace.

There are tennis courts for those who want to get in some exercise and a swimming pool near the garden walkways where you can be served a light meal during the summer. The gardens were created by the Chanoine monks in the 14th century and have an atmosphere of cool freshness and a lovely simplicity.
