Accommodations

SPECIAL NOTES

Since the Avignon historical center is small, this year we have required numerous hotels to accommodate the 4th International World FUE Institute workshop participants. All hotels are a short walking distance from the Palais des Palais des Papes and the Espace Jean Laurent where we will be holding all our non-surgical sessions. Trams to the Palais des Papes and Espace Jean Laurent will be provided mornings for those who are staying at the Hotel Cloitre Saint Louis and the Avignon Grand Hotel.

The WFI has contracted with GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES, Inc. to handle all hotel reservations on behalf of our participants this year and they are holding block space on behalf of WFI.

Please visit their website to make your hotel selection and reservations: www.globalperspectivesinc.com

All questions should be directed to suzanne.campion@worldfueinstitute.com

HOTEL D’EUROPE

ONE OF THE OLDEST HOTELS IN FRANCE

Built in 1580, the Hotel d’ Europe is the former home of the Marquis de Graveson. It overlooks one of the most beautiful squares of Avignon and is very close to the Rhone River, the Palais des Papes and the famous Pont Saint-Benezet (Pont dÁvignon). In the 16th century, the house was owned by many families of the Comtat Venaissin, the most prominent of which was the family of Amat de Graveson. In 1799, Madame Pierron created her hotel and, at the insistence of General Bonaparte himself, gave it the name it still bears today. Sumptuous renovations made in 1740 attracted guests such as Alphonse de Lamartine, Victor Hugo, Charles Dickens, John Stuart Mill, etc.

In the twentieth century, many artists, actors of cinema or Heads of State have come to enrich the legend. Picasso and Salvador Dalí were among the loyal customers of the post-war period. Jacqueline Kennedy chose to stay there during her last visit to her family's homeland in 1993. The Presidents of India, Italy and France took advantage of the luxurious suites on the 3rd floor and in 1996, during the Franco-German summit, Mr. Chirac, Mr. Kohl and Mr. Jospin spent the night.

MERCURE PONT D’AVIGNON CENTRE

Located between the Pont d'Avignon and the Palais des Papes, this Mercure hotel benefits from an excellent location right in the city center. A stone's throw from the convention center and the central train station, the establishment has quiet and modern rooms that exude a sense of well-being. The garden is especially relaxing after a long day.

MERCURE AVIGNON CENTRE PALAIS DES PAPES

Located within the historical center of Avignon with direct access to Place de l'Horloge, the Mercure Avignon Centre Palais des Papes hotel is in an exclusive location at the foot of the Palais des Papes, 2 minutes from the bridge and close to the train station.

HOTEL CLOITRE SAINT LOUIS

The Hotel Cloitre Saint Louis is located within the medieval city walls of Avignon in a 16th century building that combines historic and modern structures. Originally a Jesuit novitiate, it later became a military hospital as well as an annex to Les Invalides in Paris over the centuries.

After extensive renovations, the hotel is now a symbol of the charm of the French Provence area.
