Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Boulbon, France your home away from home

Somewhere in the southern region of France in the Cote d?Azur region lies a charming little town that is off the usual tourist beat. However, those who take the trouble to visit Boulbon will be rewarded with great scenery, lovely weather and the warmth of friendly locals. The picturesque coastline of this tiny village is what draws most visitors here as does the quaint architecture of the houses in this 1,000-year old town. Boulbon also provides an excellent starting point from which to explore the surrounding towns. In terms of accommodation visitors here can look forward to putting up in a luxurious gite or a spacious villa with a private pool. There are also many cottages available.

Things to do on holiday to Boulbon, France

Apart from sightseeing and relaxing, there is not really much to keep visitors busy in Boulbon. There are also a couple of good restaurants here that serve the lovely cuisine which France is famous for. Those interested in a unique shopping experience can visit the market at nearby Tarascon on Tuesdays, and on Fridays those who prefer strictly organic food can buy it there. Holidaymakers visiting this part of France during summer, and more specifically towards the end of July will have a chance to participate in a bull run similar to those of Pamplona. This event takes place in the town of Beaucaire, about 10 minutes away from Boulbon.

Places to visit on holiday to Boulbon, France

Boulbon is the perfect launch pad for an exploratory tour of the Cote d?Azur region. There is plenty to see here in terms of historic monuments as well as natural features. The Palace of the Popes (or Palais des Papes) was actually a pope?s residence, one of only four such locations in Europe. This magnificent structure, built amid a rocky landscape, was home to Pope Clement V who inhabited it in the early 1300s and Pope Benedict XII in 1334. The town of Tarascon is a mere 7km from Boulbon and a visit there is a particularly enriching experience. One of its most striking monuments is the King Rene?s Chateau. It is an imposing medieval castle that overlooks the River Rhone. Its solid structure belies the fact that it was constructed over half a millennium ago. Another of Tarascon?s historical jewels, the Church of St. Martha, sits right next to the castle. Its unique melange of architectural styles make it a beauty to behold.

The nearby village of Beaucaire is also a treasure trove of majestic monuments. Some of them are the baroque-style Church of Notre Dame des Pommiers and the Church of St. Paul.

Weather in Boulbon, France

Boulbon?s weather is simply magnificent with mild winters and nice, warm summers. Visitors coming here for summer holidays will experience temperatures hovering between 26 and 31°C. In winter temperatures remain well above freezing, the coldest days having temperatures of 3°C.

The house is lovely and much thought has gone into everything to make for a trouble free and pleasant stay. The beds are all SO comfortable! From the welcome by Laetitia who was waiting fro us to the time we left it was just a perfect place to be.....close enough to walk into the charming centre of St Remy but a very quiet, safe location for good rest at night! We had no transport of our own but used a local taxi company suggested by Julien or the local buses to visit a few places further afield.....Avignon, Les Baux ( a visit to the amazing Cathedrale des Images set in the old Bauxite mines is a must) and Tarascon with its amazing castle and legend of the mythical beast Tarasc who was said to creep out of the Camargue and wreak havoc in days gone by!! St Remy abounds in restaurants and cafes ( and the delicious icecream needs a mention) from which to watch the world go by over a pastis or kir and coffee and there are many narrow pedestrian streets where wandering and watching was a joy. The local market on Wednesdays is superb with a happy atmosphere. Thank you to Julien for providing yet another bottle of 'bubbly' on Anne's birthday, such a lovely touch. We all voted it a marvellous holiday.

Air-con was useful, and the pool was lovely. Just be a bit careful driving down to la Cigale - it's tight, although it does fit a Range Rover (just!)

We were certainly not disappointed. All of us found the villa to be clean, roomy, beautifully maintained, and private. It more than met our expectations. Enjoyed Most: We were most impressed with the owner's attention to detail. Literally everything we needed and expected was provided. The interior decoration as well as the very extensive millwork and cabinetry are carefully thought out out and extraordinarily done. All of our family enjoy cooking and with the beautifully equipped kitchen, we chose to stay home for most meals. The pleasure of after dinner hearts or cribbage games played with the children on the carriage lighted outside table will not be forgotten soon. Enjoyed Least: Difficult to find fault with anything. We were there during an extreme heat wave with temperatures exceeding 100 degrees on occasion. The free-standing air conditioning units did an adequate job of cooling for a good night's sleep. The few mosquitoes were not a problem. Surrounding Area: Absolutely loved driving less than 2 miles each morning to the very small town of Boulbon. Here we found everything we needed for meals for the day. There is a small but well equipped grocery store, a good boulangerie and an excellent butcher shop. For other needs, a 10 minute drive to Barbentane offers more shopping including a supermarche, Nearby Events or Locales: Boulbon as mentioned above is the nearest town and could be walked to within a half hour or so each way. Tips or Restaurants: Pizza de la Tour in Barbentane and particularly Decouverte in St. Remy were good finds. Directions: One thing which might be mentioned is the turn off highway D81 involves entering a road marked 'no entry'. Confused us a bit the first time but okay thereafter and the directions to the property were very complete. We did use a GPS system and would advise all drivers do so. Check In Out: Check in and check out were very easy. The keyholder, Abdou, speaks very little English but 3 in our crowd spoke some French and we had no problem communicating. He is a kind, respectful gentleman whom we grew to enjoy. He even baked a wonderful chocolate granache cake for us one evening.
