Gerard Simi and Gary Elphick's long association within the leisure industry in France and London has culminated in the opening of Les Saisons, a bed and breakfast of prestige that offers affordable deluxe comfort within a splendid environment.
Les Saisons is a friendly and relaxed place to base yourself whilst exploring this idyllic region of Provence and after a warm welcome you'll soon be discovering just why.
We believe that you will find the accommodation and areas of relaxation not only attractive and comfortable, but also unique.
Les Saisons, a 17th century 'hotel particulier' built in 1642, is situated on Place de l'Oratoire in the historic centre of Villeneuve-les-Avignon. This small placette and some of its ancient residences were home to the Cardinals of Avignon during the middle ages, and the grandeur of these smaller 'palazzi' is still visible.
The garden and terrace offer a private and peaceful area in which to relax and unwind both during the day and evening, while the swimming pool tempts you to a refreshing cool reprieve from the Provençal heat at anytime.
During the French revolution and the subsequent supression of religious worship, the large cave-like cellar beneath the house was used for holding clandestine masses.
More recently, during the second world war the French poet and surrealist artist Louis Aragon lived in the house for a while. A controversial figure who moved within the same circles as Picasso and Luis Bunel. He followed marxism, fought in the Spanish Civil war and was also an active member of the French Resistance.
Our rooms offer stylish elegance inspired by the vibrant colours, shade and light associated with the Provençal seasons.
Original oils by contemporary Avignonnais artist Florus enhance each room and the mix of traditional and contemporary design creates a space of comfort and tranquillity where you can relax and re-energise.
All rooms have private ensuite shower and WC. The Autumn room in addition benefits from a bath.
