Hotel de l'Atelier

A great little hotel across the river from Avignon, just a five-minute bus ride from the City of Popes.

About this Hotel

Price From $84

The 23 rooms are all different shapes and sizes—the building was built in the 16th century as a silk workshop—and there are exposed beams and stone walls, as well as painted niches, art deco dressers, Chinese end tables, and antique photography.

A few rooms look a bit like they're from a 1940s movie set.

The garden terrace is livened up with modern sculptures; hallways showcase paintings by local artists.

Details Doubles from $84 (€59).
