With the help of one of the other B&B residents, I found this wonderful bookshop – Camili Books and Tea – where you can browse and buy second hand English books and enjoy a delicious cup of tea – this is the website and the address is 155 rue Carreterie 84000 Avignon – or email Camili on Camili.firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are in Avignon for longer than a few days you can take part in conversation groups, art exhibitions, concerts, workshops, buy wool, English and French lessons and get translations done!
This is the great B&B I stayed at – Le Limas – owned by Marion, who is wonderful – she runs a fantastic B&B.
I had the best room – the 3 windows on the first floor. It had a great bathroom and another small room (near the window) which had a single bed in it – I was able to spread my stuff out on the bed and keep the main bedroom tidier. While I was there I met some other of the B&B guests and they were all lovely.
The breakfast was so delicious – this was the choice!
Fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, baked fruit custard tart, cheese slices, prosciutto, croissants, pastries, bread rolls, little jars of yummy jam, butter, cereals, yoghurts, a delicious home made apricot and Greek yoghurt in a shot glass, tea, milk, coffee, expresso, iced water and two fruit juices!
And if you have special dietary requirements, such as no dairy, let Marion know when you book and she will get what you need.
I would definitely stay there again if I am lucky enough to return to Avignon – but hopefully when it isn’t so hot!
I visited the Popes’ Palace – and it was wonderful – definitely worth a visit but allow enough time. This is not my photo – I took a photo of the film that was showing at the beginning – it was an excellent introduction to the Palace. All the films were worth watching so take a break, sit down and watch – I didn’t take an audio guide as I like to do my own thing in my own time, but I overheard one, and it was well produced.
