    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    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'. The house floor area is 120sq meters 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.
