We knew nothing about this place, which our travel agent booked for us. It is very beautiful and well situated in central Avignon. The home of former cardinals when the Papacy was in Avignon, it is an old and elegant mansion, with beautiful rooms, gardens and a very special restaurant! Difficult to find (to enter, you must find the electronic post, call the hotel, and ask them to lower the posts that block the entrance to the street)! Once you are there it's like being in heaven. Avignon itself is built of a golden stone and is very beautiful. Definitely worth two day stop; while there, visit the wonderful Lambert Collection and have lunch there.
