La Banastière : a charming guest house in Avignon

chambres d'hotes en Avignon, demeure de luxe La Banastière

La Banastière, on the outskirts of Avignon, was built in 1711 by a wicker basket producer (banaste meaning wicker basket in the 18th century.) There were a lot of factories at that time in Provence due to the fact that the markets, and notably those in Avignon, had become increasingly popular with the arrival of the Popes who designated Avignon as the capital of Western medieval culture in the 15th century.
At the same time during the 18th century this region became the biggest producer of vegetables in France due to the development of the railroad. Due to its geographical situation Avignon has played an important role in Northern and Southern European history.

It was at this time that La Banastière was turned into a Provencal farmhouse. In 1947 Jean Villar created the Avignon festival known to one and all.
In the year 2000 Avignon was elected European city of Culture thanks to emblematic figures such as Theodore Aubanel, Joseph Roumanille, and Frederic Mistral, the famous winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Nowadays, La Banastière has become a charming guesthouse, bed and brakfast, renovated with taste and a love of Provence. It has received 4 épis from the Gîtes de France.


In the entrance hall one can see a quote by Frederic Mistral : “ Lou Souleu me fa canta ”.
