“Magical” An amazing experience. Bulbon itself is a gem; close to Avignon, Arles and St. Maries and Uze. So A+ on location. La Maison du Puits itself is nestled into what could be a (much cooler) version of Disney World. I'll never forget the feeling of driving up at night and seeing the way the whole village is lit up in the rocks. So A+ there as well. Bulbon is small but charming. Everyone was glad to see us and really delighted in being of service. We made friends everywhere we went. Les, Margaret , Paola, and Maison du Puits itself were above and beyond for hospitality. We were comfortable immediately. It felt like a home away from home. Tres Fantastique! je suis heureuse.
Village House in Provence between Avignon and Arles.
Excellent location to explore Provence
Beautifully restored stone house in a small town 15 km outside of Avignon. All of Provence is accessible for day trips from Boulbon. The house has a lounge, dining and kitchen on main, master bedroom with ensuite and an another toilet/basin on second. On the third floor is a double room and a two singles room served by one full bathroom.
The kitchen is very well equipped and also has a dishwasher, and two small fridges. The dining room has a big table. Lounge has two couches, tv with cds and movies available to use. There is a washing machine and at least four bikes in the ‘cave’. Two terraces with plenty of outside furniture. Excellent wifi.
The actual house is a bit difficult to find using GPS. Arrange to meet the very helpful caretaker Paola at the boulongerie (bakery) in the square (3 min walk from house). Parking in the shoulder season is easy - either on the street or the village has an upper parking lot (4 min to house). You could pull up close to unload but there isn’t parking right at the house. Boulbon has a bakery, butcher, well stocked store, cafe, Tabac, pizza takeout and a lovely restaurant which in October was open Friday’s and Saturday’s. The town of Tarascon is 7 km away and has a Weekly market as well as a few large grocery stores. We highly recommend this property. You will not be disappointed. Linen and towels are included but you will have to make your bed. Owners in the UK were quick to respond and very easy to deal with. Paola was more than helpful; printing our train tickets and finding us accommodation when we decided to stay longer in Boulbon but sadly this property wasn’t available. Would definitely return and would definitely send our friends!!!!! …
