Fodor's Review

You will not find a better, unobstructed panoramic rooftop view in such close proximity of the Palais du Papes than this, and accessing it is half the fun. There's also a street-level terrace with a commanding view, equally divine for sipping cocktails. The B&B's interior is a homogeneous mix of orange, red, and yellow paints and fabrics with Thai furniture. Equally as vibrant, opera-loving Sabine pays attention to her guests' needs (lovely soap and shampoo; bottled

water on arrival; and even scented sachets as a souvenir). Breakfast is included and dinner is by request. If you're here for New Year's Eve, you can reserve in advance for the special New Year's Eve menu with champagne, wine, and digestifs.
