“Characterful house with modern comforts and great location”

One feels very special staying at La Maison du Puits as it oozes character practically being a part of the fabric of the old castle. The house is updated & very comfortable and Paola (contact on site) a delight and fountain of information. There is very well organized information on site about the house and area attractions. Boulbon is refreshingly quiet but very close, by car, to Avignon, Tarascon (awesome castle, and I've seen a few), Arles etc. Plenty to fill two weeks of exploring. In Boulbon there are enough small streets to explore and a hike around the castle perimeter or up to the windmill to occupy a day, but after that you will probably be looking farther afield for adventures. The village has an okay Boulangerie, convenient small grocery store, creative butcher, & post office. If you have trouble with stairs or slopes you need to be aware the most convenient bathroom is not on the ground floor, and that there is a short but fairly steep slope coming up to the house with parking some distance away. We parked close in to the house to unload and then moved the car to free parking in the village square a few minutes walk away. The delightful location more than compensated us for any inconvenience regarding parking. If you are a light sleeper,there are some local clock tower bells that sound during the night so you may wish to bring ear-plugs. We did not bring ear-plugs, but also chose not to open the windows at night on account of the bells and slept soundly.

“Fantastic medieval retreat”

La Maison du Puits certainly provided that WOW factor on our recent European trip. Of the 28 places of accommodation we stayed during the trip, the Well House in the lovely village of Boulbon was a standout. Its location within the rampart of the old town fortification was absolutely amazing. We stayed a week with another couple and the well appointed cottage with it's two separate bathrooms ensured a most comfortable holiday. Boulbon is located just south of Avignon and is a good centre for visiting many of Provence's attractions by car. On our arrival we were met by the friendly Paola who introduced us to the cottage and provided a wealth of helpful local information. A daily visit to the local patisserie is a must.
