La Magnaneraie: charming hotel with lovely gardens in Avignon

Hotel La Magnaneraie is a charming hotel just outside the walls of the old city of Avignon. Its bountiful gardens and heated outdoor swimming pool allow guests to forget their worries and enjoy the climate of Provence. The advantage of staying just outside the walled city is the ease of getting to (and out of) the hotel and parking your car. If you plan to explore the countryside outside Avignon and venture out to the Luberon, Aix-en-Provence, the Pont du Gard, Arles and Nîmes by car as most visitors do, La Magnaneraie is much more convenient than a hotel inside the city.

There is free WiFi and air conditioning (for the hot summer months). A breakfast buffet is served at an extra charge. The hotel is well-equipped to host small conferences and receptions (i.e. for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, company parties and more). The conference rooms are outfitted with the latest audio-visual equipment.

People who love playing golf will appreciate the Golf Grand Avignon and Golf de Pont Royal, both of which are close by. If you enjoy hiking, there are many trails in the hills around Avignon. Just walking around Avignon will give you a good workout and naturally, a robust appetite. The city is filled with delightful bistrots and gastronomic restaurants that feature the best cuisine of southern France and the best wines of the region.

If you prefer to dine at the hotel, the Restaurant La Magnaneraie is a fantastic option. The food changes with the seasons and is served in the dining room, which features a skylight and large windows that overlook the garden. You can also dine on the terrace outdoors. While there is an à la carte menu, the Escapade Gourmande is the specialty of the hotel, shared between two people, featuring two glasses of champagne, two menus Magnan, a sommelier’s selection, sweets and a few other libations, allowing one to truly experience the gourmet cuisine offered here.
