Puycelci is walled, medieval hilltop town overlooking miles of farmland and vineyards. It's easily explored in an afternoon with plenty of time left over to sip some wine. There is no better place to do so than at L'Ancienne Auberge where its owners Dorothy, an American expat and her husband Dave, an Aussie, will make you feel right at home. They have lived here for thirty years and in that time have completely renovated their 500 year old property, bringing the two foot thick stone walls and Gothic arches back to life. Dorthy is the consummate host, pressing a delicious breakfast on her guests which included fresh squeezed orange juice. The rooms are comfortable, attractive and spotless. This writer came down with a bad cold during our stay and Dorothy provided homemade pumpkin vegetable soup as the perfect cure. We can't say enough about her generous and attentive hospitality.
Puycelci is centrally located two hours from Nice, two hours from Barcelona and two hours from the Alps making it the perfect base from which to explore the region. You might want to check out their one and two bedroom apartments available by the week. The two bedroom apartment has a huge, private terrace with views to die for. Enjoy!More
