Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
Boulbon, Bouches-du-Rhone, Provence
Located in a Provencal village between Avignon and Arles, the house dates back to the 14th century. It is our second home and is situated just within the ramparts of an old fortified chateaux and about 100 metres from the village square. Part of the structure contains the communal well and washing sinks for the old fortified town, hence the name 'La Maison du Puits' or 'The Well House'. It has a sun terrace and small garden. The house floor area is 120m² on 3 floors and was totally renovated in 1999 by a local stone mason. It has 3 bedrooms, (two doubles and one twin) and two bathrooms, one en suite. A bed settee in the lounge means it can sleep up to 8. A travel cot (95x65cms) is also available for babies.
There are 4 bicycles available for guest use, and there is a free car park 150m from the house.

We were off to a good start on arriving at around 9.30pm on Saturday and found that the easy-going Café was still open for food (Fri and Sat eve only - lunch all other times).

A truly unique home built into the ruins. The house itself is finished to a very high standard and felt at once ancient and a modern accommodation. The village of Boulbon is perfectly situated for exploring western Provence-- short drives from Avignon, Arles, Orange, St Remy, Nimes, Les Baux, etc. The village itself is a slice of real Provence.

We spent a wonderful Christmast at La Maison du Puits in Boulbon. A great town to explore with and a base for many day trips. The accommodation had everything we needed and Paulo was very helpful and available if needed. No hesitation in recommending this property and would happily return here.

Many thanks for your kind review. We are glad all went well and wish you a happy new year. Kind regards Les and Margaret
