“I like to offer my guests a pleasant stay in a lovely old house, with an ambiance and setting that gives them a break from their day-to-day lives".
More than anything, The Originals City, Hotel du Parc, Avignon East is a little slice of history. “This building is 300 years old, and was originally the Entraigues-sur-la-Sorgue coaching inn for travellers and their horses,” Éric says, "but with the arrival of the motor car, the inn fell into disuse and the land became used for farming. In 1990 an entrepreneurial hotelier decided to breathe new life into the place, transforming it into the hotel it is today”. Éric and Valérie came into the story in 2012, and have run this entirely-renovated old house ever since. Old-world charm and modern comforts fill all of the 30 rooms at this 3-star hotel near Avignon, which also offers dining facilities and meeting rooms. It is a real voyage through time, only a few kilometres outside of Avignon.
