Just a stone’s throw from the Popes’ Palace and the famous bridge of Avignon (St Benezet), there’s something magical about our property, blending elegance with tradition, and a touch of the unexpected.

Located opposite Place des Carmes, the house is built on the ruins of the monastery and the church of the Augustinians of XIII – XIV century and contains many architectural features from that time.

A well-preserved chapel from the XIV century constitutes a part of the main hall, the Gothic window made by the Compagnons du Tour de France, the stained glass window and the gargoyle are testimony to the exceptionally rich architectural heritage of this building.

The imposing bell tower which adjoins the property is a remnant of the Augustinian church and convent which were partially destroyed during the French Revolution.

A total renovation of the property was undertaken in 2012/2013 under the leadership of the architect of the Buildings of France, combining the spirit of the times, contemporary comfort and ecological features.

In this peaceful setting in the historic center, the property is designed around a patio of more than 80m2 in a Mediterranean spirit – you’ll forget you’re in the heart of a bustling city! A haven of peace which is situated in a vibrant local shopping area of small boutique businesses and artisans near the covered market Les Halles. The immediate location is a pretty, pedestrianized area with reduced traffic.

A terrace of over 34m2 on the 2nd floor gives a breathtaking view of the historic monument the bell tower of the Augustinian church.

The property is surrounded by dozens of churches, chapels and beautiful mansions and yet within easy reach of the bustle of the international theater festival.

The premises comprise a main residence of 247 m2 over 3 levels, habitable outbuildings of 257 m2 over 3 levels and outside areas totaling 126 m2 (patio, loggias and a roof top terrace).
