This charming hotel is located in the heart of Avignon right behind Palais des Papes. Just 2hrs.40min. from Paris by TGV, Avignon is a great weekend trip and La Mirande is the perfect place to stay. Once a private mansion, La Mirande feels like a home away from home. Down in the home’s old kitchen they have a cooking school and chef’s table. I didn’t get to take any lessons this trip, but I plan on going back! This property pairs well with Baumanière in Les Baux-de-Provence.
