Hôtel de l’Atelier
Once a 16th-century silk workshop, the family owned L’Atelier is intimate and traditional and covered in creeping vines. From its stone spiral staircase to its roaring fireplace, exposed beams, grandfather clocks and antique furniture, this property exudes Provençal character.
Rooms are simple yet full of local charm with all necessary amenities such as air conditioning and Wi-Fi. There is also a delightful inner courtyard with a few tables and chairs where guests can enjoy breakfast or an evening drink in the shade.
Located across the river from bustling Avignon in the village of Villeneuve-les-Avignon, it is a slightly quieter base yet still central with plenty of local restaurants and independent shops on the surrounding streets.
Rooms here are relatively small, though quiet and charming, with wooden beams, heavy stone walls and typical Provençal antique furniture. Views look out over the village of Villeneuve-les-Avignon or the inner garden, and some even have a small private balcony. Modern conveniences such as Wi-Fi and air conditioning come as standard here.
The hotel is set in the village of Villeneuve-les-Avignon which is worth visiting in its own right as it is full of local character and charm and boasts a wealth of shops and restaurants. Just across the river is Avignon which is about 25 minutes away on foot or about 10 minutes by taxi. L’Atelier is also well-situated in the heart of Provence with the Roman aqueduct Pont-du-Gard to the west, the hilltop villages of the Lubéron to the east, and Les Alpilles mountain range and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence to the south.
Food and Drink
Breakfast is served in the sun-drenched breakfast room or outside on the terrace, and consists of a variety of hot and cold items including fresh produce and homemade jams. While there isn’t on on-site restaurant for dinner, there are many options to choose from nearby in Villeneuve-les-Avignon.
Quiet and authentic, L’Atelier is ideally located in a charming Provençal village whilst still being within walking distance of historic Avignon. It’s an intimate, family-run place and also wonderfully traditional with stone walls and a charming inner courtyard.
