Sharon and I had a fabulous stay on the Barthelasse’s Island just across the bridge from Avignon.  Domaine de Rhodes is a “must stay” bed and breakfast if you are visiting Avignon, France.  Our hosts were Francoise and Paco.  They are a wonderful couple, who make you feel right at home immediately.  My pictures do not do justice to this great B & B.  You will need to click on my link to their website for details.   Domaine de Rhodes.

This awesome 16th century hunting lodge is Domaine de Rhodes Bed and Breakfast.

There are beautiful photo opportunities in all directions.

Upon entering Domaine de Rhodes, you are greeted with this great, old staircase that leads up to the rooms.

The lush grounds are filled with antiques.

In addition to the rooms in the main house, there are three cottages that can be rented.

Each cottage is decorated beautifully.

There is a nice patio and outside kitchen.  We relaxed here….looking out to the vast gardens.

Francoise and Paco must have “green thumbs”, as there were pots of flowers everywhere.

The grounds were stunning and the architecture incredible.

Francoise and Paco, our hosts!

We even loved the window in our room.

This was the terrific view from our bedroom window.  What a great way to wake up in the morning.

Another perfect view of the beautiful grounds at Domaine de Rhodes.

Francoise even brought in fresh cut flowers for our room.  Yes, the flowers were from her yard.

Another view of the hunting lodge.

I hope that this picture gives you a sense how large the grounds are.


Here we are with Uska, the friendly greeter at Domaine de Rhodes.

Sharon would be upset with me if I did not mention that each morning we were treated to a new, beautiful table setting.  The delicious breakfast was always served with fresh fruits and juices, bread and croissants, and cheeses from local farmers and bakeries.  Please visit their website for more pictures of each room and details to help you plan a trip to Domaine de Rhodes on the Barthelasse’s Island across the Rhone River from Avignon.
