“Amazing House, Great Village, Super Location”

Set in a very charming village in Provence, tucked behind a castle wall, is this gem of a house. We were all so excited upon arrival that we had chosen such a unique and wonderful place to spend our time and we quickly felt right at home. Maison du Puit is full of charm, character, and history. We really enjoyed the terrace on the warmer days, and when it was colder it was nice to use the lounge fireplace. There was lots of room for our family of 6 to spread out, with a lovely open kitchen/dining/living space to congregate in. The house has a great collection of area maps & tour guides, as well as a handy owner's instruction manual. Paola, the neighbouring caretaker, was a wonderful host, full of great information on what to see and do. We loved the small village of Boulbon... exploring the narrow streets was fun and everyone was very friendly. You can get yummy take out homemade meals from the village charcuterie just down the street. The 4 bikes were very much appreciated for short rides around town and into the countryside, and the boule set was fun to use in the town square. If you like to hike, the hills behind the house and castle are rewarding with their views... lots of trails to explore, especially up to the windmill and beyond. You can even hike one hour over the hills to an abbey. The castle perched on the hill above the house is really spectacular to see from around the village and at night is all lit up... very impressive! There is so much to see and do in the area (Avignon, Arles, Les Baux, St. Remy, Tarascon, Rousignon, markets...) plenty to fill our 10 day stay. Lastly, the owners were quick to communicate and very kind.

The best vacation EVER!
We had the most fantastic time at this home in Provence. I don't have the words to describe our delight. The home is so well kept, with everything a visitor could want and more. The decor is beautiful. This was our first visit to the area so the unique touches of Provence became more obvious throughout our stay as we explored the region. The artwork depicting the region, Boulbon (the village) and the home is really spectacular. The owners have obviously put a lot of love (and work) into restoring their home.
We spent a lot of time during our one week exploring the surrounding areas and famous cities and sites. Boulbon is such an easy drive to everything in the area for visitors. However, I'm really glad we took the time to explore the village of Boulbon. It is so dramatic, historic and beautiful. We felt a part of the village. Paola, the caretaker, invited us to a performance for children at the town's cultural center. There was a clown who performed and our children absolutely loved it - in spite of the language barrier. My 16 year old son was brought onstage during the performance and I know he will always remember it. Paula is a great caretaker and a great local host.
We would love to return for another visit and are very happy to recommend it to others.

Thanks for a terrific holiday. Please tell Paola many thanks for us. She's a gem.

Liked best: The home is located just inside the tower of a medieval watchtower, visible from the bedrooms. It's such an amazing place. The village is amazing when the castle on the hill is lit up at night. It's just fantastic!

“Characterful house with modern comforts and great location”

One feels very special staying at La Maison du Puits as it oozes character practically being a part of the fabric of the old castle. The house is updated & very comfortable and Paola (contact on site) a delight and fountain of information. There is very well organized information on site about the house and area attractions. Boulbon is refreshingly quiet but very close, by car, to Avignon, Tarascon (awesome castle, and I've seen a few), Arles etc. Plenty to fill two weeks of exploring. In Boulbon there are enough small streets to explore and a hike around the castle perimeter or up to the windmill to occupy a day, but after that you will probably be looking farther afield for adventures. The village has an okay Boulangerie, convenient small grocery store, creative butcher, & post office. If you have trouble with stairs or slopes you need to be aware the most convenient bathroom is not on the ground floor, and that there is a short but fairly steep slope coming up to the house with parking some distance away. We parked close in to the house to unload and then moved the car to free parking in the village square a few minutes walk away. The delightful location more than compensated us for any inconvenience regarding parking. If you are a light sleeper,there are some local clock tower bells that sound during the night so you may wish to bring ear-plugs. We did not bring ear-plugs, but also chose not to open the windows at night on account of the bells and slept soundly.
