Beautiful Avignon Hotel La Mirande

Avignon is a city in southeastern France’s Provence region, set on the Rhône River. From 1309 to 1377, Avignon was the seat of the Catholic popes. It remained under papal rule until becoming part of France in 1791. This legacy can be seen in the massive Palais des Papes (Popes’ Palace) in the city center, which is surrounded by medieval stone ramparts. Avignon charms visitors with its ancient streets, restored medieval ramparts, and the immense Gothic architecture of the Palais des Papes–the papacy was based here in the 14th century. The annual Festival d’Avignon, a major arts festival, attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors for theater, dance, film and street performances.

What Makes La Mirande Special?

Firstly, Hotel La Mirande has exquisitely renovated interiors where no expense was spared. The decisions as to what should stay and what should be added were thoughtfully considered. Indeed it’s not everyday a nobleman’s 18th century townhouse is restored and opened to the public! Secondly, you’ll experience the romance which comes from history and age within this building where even some of the former servants’ quarters have been preserved. Thirdly, you may fall for the luxurious modern amenities in the guest rooms. (Think televisions in mirrors!). Additionally, you cannot beat La Mirande’s unique location next to the magificent Popes’ Palace. The landmark is visible from almost every room and from the charming gardens at the hotel. Finally, La Mirande is also considered the perfect setting for a French Downton Abbey.

The Backstory

“On becoming a 5-star boutique hotel, La Mirande has not ceased to be a private house, and is a better guardian of its history than many a palace that is only preserved for visitation or to house a museum.” ~La Mirande

As mentioned, the hotel property is extremely close to Palais des Papes.

Palais des Papes. Photo via @4cornersoftheworld. In case you were wondering, the Popes’ Palace is so tall you can see it from far away. This intimidating cluster of towers is a citadel within the walled city, the attempt of the French crown to establish the papacy here for good. It boosted Avignon to become the capital of Christianity for the better part of a century (1309 to 1377). Also, almost all rooms at La Mirande offer a close and romantic view from different angles of this world heritage monument, the world’s largest Gothic palace.

Just how close? Undeniably! Take a gander…

I knowwwwwwww, right? How in the world did that happen?

A Quick History Lesson

“The story begins in 1309 with the establishment of the Popes in Avignon. One of the cardinals accompanying pope Clement V was his nephew, Cardinal de Pellegrue, who built a “livrée”, as cardinals’ palaces were called, in the privileged location of the direct neighbourhood adjoining the Popes’ Palace. Up until the siege of the Popes’ Palace in 1410, when it was partly destroyed, the “livrée” had remained the property of cardinals, in particular Hugues Roger, brother to pope Clement VI, and Hugues de Saint-Martial, the last incumbent.” ~La Mirande

Soooooo, oui. Perhaps since Cardinal de Pellegrue was related to the pope, he was permitted to build his home extremely close to the palace. However, the property obviously looked different in the 1300’s. Sadly, the original structure was partly destroyed. In 1653, a classical facade was built by architect Pierre Mignard. Then in 1987, the hotel was purchased by the Steins who restored it over the next three years.

Hotel Interior

The boutique hotel’s twenty-seven rooms on the first floor are all uniquely decorated. Indeed each has its own 18th century wall covering, which was reissued by design houses such as Braquenié, Le Manach, Canovas, Comoglio, and Rubelli. The interior wall design of the bedrooms represents the composition and symmetries en vogue in the 18th century. As a result, you’ll find authentic dado wood panelling and historic cotton print wall coverings (reaching from the dado rail to the crown moulding). In addition, guest rooms include: matched silk lined curtains, vintage parquet floors, and antique furniture. Also notable? Firstly, invisible mirror televisions are integrated in the room’s overmantel or trumeau. Secondly, large antique windows offer a splendid view through the period-appropriate old glass to the neighbouring Popes’ palace (with the exception of four rooms which have street or court views). Thirdly, paintings, engravings, and carpets also grace the beautiful guest rooms.

A Beautiful Video to Experience the Magic

While I have assembled a photo gallery of some of my favorite images of La Mirande from around the web, I have also painstakingly attempted to organize images of each guest room. As a result, I hope you will more easily experience the splendor of the lovely fabric patterns and architectural interest. Additionally, where possible, I have identified the room number.

Consequently, you can choose your favorite room and record this detail to any bucket list! Meet me at the finish line and let me know your favorite room number! Also, PIN what feels PINWORTHY to save those glorious moments for later. This is quite zee fantasy tour so certainly choose something delicious to sip. Since you may be staring for awhile, I want you hydrated. Also cheese or a nice chocolate is in order.

(By the way, the more time I spent with these images, the prettier they became…yes, indeed, timeless lovely always wins!)
