Summer may be slipping away, but that won’t keep us from virtually vacationing in the South of France. Oui, ma cherie, I’m checking us into an amazing 19th Century Provençal mansion with bold interiors, splendid art, and romantic gardens. Ready to board your flight and land as a guest to this Fantasy French Chateau in Avignon? Let the fantasy commence.

And the gardens will undoubtedly delight you.
About This Beautiful Property
One of five different suites at the property, the mansion is located in the heart of the city center.
You’ll find the largest private garden in Avignon here, along with a spa.
Discover Avignon in this:
This restored property is home to an amazing art collection of more than two hundred original 17th to 19th-Century aquarelle paintings and gravures.
Before these pieces were brought here, they were exhibited in the Palais des Papes.
This mansion’s rooms are decorated with whimsical oddities and one-of-a-kind treasures.
(As you tour this home, keep in mind, furniture in the rooms are configured for hotel guests.)
Are you surprised to see relatively relaxed furnishings and modern touches in the historic rooms?
For enthusiasts of Old World style, the furniture and color choices may seem perplexing.
However, it’s possible the choices would be far different were this property not opened to the public.

Oh these lanterns!
Art Collection in a South of France Chateau
The hotel’s private collection of many one-of-a-kind artworks and furnishings include more than 200 original aquarelle paintings and gravures depicting Avignon.
This unique art collection was once exhibited in the Palais des Papes.
Eclectic Design in a Chateau’s Dining Room
Chippy religious statues, wrinkled slipcovered chairs and Empire style chandeliers over a rustic farm table?
My favorite element is definitely the herringbone floors!
And the doors!
I am sure these photos make a lot of French country purists completely annoyed!
I mean, wouldn’t you expect French toile panels and color in here?
The restrained, greyed palette is consistent with the rest of the interiors.
