Avignon’s a true charmer; if its picturesque setting on the banks of the Rhône River doesn’t get you, the medieval ramparts that surround the city centre surely will. Within their historic embrace, you’ll find a maze of cobbled streets ripe for the meandering, architectural delights from across the centuries and artistic richness around every turn.
Auberge de Cassagne and Spa is situated just a short distance from Avignon’s walled centre and takes shape within a traditional Provençal house with gardens. Elegance exudes throughout, from the calming colour palettes in the guest bedrooms to the sophisticated ambience of the restaurant and bar. There’s a spa here too, so you’ve every excuse to unwind.
How to Get There
The location of this hotel is a little of of the way, in a outer suburb of Avignon; but that location has its advantages for sightseeing in the surrounding areas. Besides, the hotel itself is a gem. It's completely Provencal kind of relaxing, and everything is in tip top shape. And that's even before eating in the restaurant. We came here 30 years ago and came back again because we remember the food. We were not disappointed. We still marvel at the guinea fowl with foie gras.
I chose this old farm turned hotel because it was best situated for taking our car for day trips west, east and south to visit greater Provence. It is also conveniently located to take a wine tour of Chateauneuf du Pape. I did not have time for the spa so I cannot comment. Their breakfasts are great but extra to to the room rate. The dinner venue is absolutely delicious but it is not a place that you go every night. Awesome wine selection. We stayed 4 nights and easily visited Les Baux, Il Sur la Sorgue, Founraine Valcluse, and Chateauneuf de Pape.
We only stayed here for one night on our way across France. It was a fantastic choice of accommodation and from the moment you arrive everything is what you would expect from an SLH property. Pleasant staff, great rooms and amazing food. Dinner was exceptional. Warm and welcome all in all a great stay.
