Rental Home /
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.

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. more

We are 4 friends who decided to explore Provence and live there for 2 weeks. Our trip was wonderful mainly because of La Maison du Puits and Boulbon.

What a beautiful home we could not fault this house everything was just perfect. Everything provided for a great holiday. We loved walking down to the boulangerie each morning for fresh croissants and have a leisurely breakfast on the terrace. We had no difficulty in finding plenty of beautiful little towns and places of interest to visit in the area... more
