‘L’Étable Cowork’ which literally means ‘Barn where people work together’ is a collaborative workspace with two locations, Avignon and Pertuis. It is mainly for small businesses, startups, self-employed, and telecommuting employees. A community of mobile workers who share their knowledge and network to grow together.
Two spaces are available, the first one in the center of Avignon, next to the train station (Gare d’Avignon Centre), and the second one in the center of Pertuis, in the Luberon. These two locations offer offices, meeting rooms, corporate domiciliation, training, consulting and FREE coffee / tea!
We visited the one in Avignon which is very conveniently located, neighbouring downtown. Hungry or ready for a little break or finished working but not ready to go home yet? No problem! A food truck is never far away and if you’d like to go out to get a drink…a 3 minute walk is all it takes!
They also have free parking space which is around the corner. However, the office is situated on the 3rd floor of the Novotel building but you are NOT allowed to use the hotels parking space. Just so you know and won’t get fined. Do click on the images to see enlarged!

‘Portes Ouvertes’ / Open House
Open House Day is always a good way to get acquainted. ‘L’Étable Cowork’ regularly organizes days like these and they are so much fun! All the visitors are being spoiled with fresh croissants, home-made cake and lots of other goodies as you can see on the images below. On Open House day you also get the opportunity to try out the work spaces for free. Afterwards you can decide which formula you would like to choose. Founders (Olivier Vollaire and Bastien Devaux) and co-workers were all in a great mood and that shows, doesn’t it!!! 🙂
I’m just writing about my own personal impression of just two hours but if you’d like to indulge yourself in more accurate and detailed information, please do consult their website. In case you are visiting on a non Open House Day, please call Olivier one day in advance to make an appointment. They also have a very active Facebook page! Do ‘like’…it’s so much fun to follow their daily activities!
Whether you are using the spaces of ‘L’Étable Cowork in the morning, afternoon, evening or night (24/24 availability!) there is always a moment when you are done…and feel like doing some shopping, have a drink or eat a bite. I suggest you cross the street and enjoy Avignon. We certainly did after yesterdays visit and that’s why I would like to end this article with a very happy and colorful street spotted in beautiful downtown.
Merci pour votre attention et à la prochaine!
