“Very nice location for holidays at Cordes sur Ciel”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We were 4 days at La Maison au Puit. We appreciated very much the location at Cordes sur Ciel, as the room place, the cleanliness, the comfortable bed, the kindness of Chris and Nico and especially the dinner we shared all together. This traditional house has a lot of charme!

We spent 5 weeks traveling in France and Spain. La Maison au Puits was one of our most favorite places to stay during our trip. Nico is a gourmet chief and the dinners were fantastic. Christianne was very helpful with ideas of what to do while visiting this area of France. As luck would have it, the other guest were a lot of fun and we ended up singing Irish songs after dinner into the wee hours of the night. What a blast. We would recommend this place to all our friends that travel to France. Thank you Nico and Christianne for being such wonderful hosts.

We were first time Chambre d'hote users with a smattering of French so uncertain of our ground when visiting the likes of La Maison Au Puits. We stayed here for two nights - on the accommodation front - the room was excellent - plenty of space, good lighting, fresh and clean, comfortable bed and good shower facilities. The house is over 300 years old and has been tastefully decorated/renovated to reflect the best elements of that heritage - stone walls and oak beams wonderfully brought to light with numerous candles well spread out casting shadows and light adding to the atmosphere. Our hosts are a mix of the eccentric and the placid - a good combination as you will find out when you stay. They bring an added dimension to the place with their mix of characters. We ate in both nights and each was a totally different experience mainly due to the different guests on each night. The first evening was shared by 8 English speaking guests - a mix of US, English, Australian and Irish. Hard to describe the evening but safe to say that the food was excellent, the wine terrific, the conversation flowed and then the singing started .... and you can guess the rest. The second night was somewhat more conservative - 2 French couples, a US couple and us Irish. The food and wine were excellent again - the conversation was somewhat less flowing so we tried the singing - our fellow guests were happy to listen but not to partake (we need to get them to come to Ireland). Overall La Maison au Puits is a well located resting place for weary travellers - a place to relax and be pampered by Nico and Christianne.

This is not a 5 star hotel; what it is, is much better than that. It is a warm and welcoming, characterful and charming home. Our bedroom was fresh and clean and really worked for us. There was plenty of space, a large bed, two layers of bedding so you could choose according to the temperature, cotton sheets, plenty of mirrors and photos and heating that you could regulate yourself. There was lots of hot water and good lighting in the shower room. It felt like home from home.
We ate in one evening and the meal was so tasty and generous and the company was great....unfortunately we ate elsewhere the following night! The breakfasts were delicious and different each day.
But what really made the stay for us, was that Nico and Christianne worked so hard to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for them. No wonder they have so many good reviews. Thank you both.

The welcome we recieved was amazing. The first night we ate as a couple and they organised and created a beautifully romantic meal. The second night was a fantastic evening which ran into the early hours with the other guests. Chris and Nico worked so hard and have a great eye for beautiful things. Their style is very modern with tradition and comfort to inspire. I came home with lots of ideas for my home. Nico is passionate about his food and creates delicious meals. Chris is warm and inviting and they make a great team.

We had a very enjoyable stay at La Maison au Puits this summer. The hosts were very friendly and helpful with tourist information. We really appreciated being able to rest and watch the Olympics on the big screen with a beer after a full day of touring. The room we had was clean and nicely decorated. We were travelling with our 8 year old son and appreciated the family room set up where he could go to sleep earlier without putting us in the dark. We also enjoyed a dinner prepared by Nico under the stars with the other guests. The food was great as was the international company. The wifi connection was good too.

There is not much you can say about the accommodation & hospitality at Maison au Puits, except WOW! Christianne & Nico are wonderful hosts, with nothing too much trouble. They share their table with you in the evening & provide the most splendid food beautifully prepared & served. We enjoyed the company of fellow travellers all happy to enjoy a chat over fine food & wine.
