After several weeks of hectic driving it was such a pleasure to settle in here. The home is very attractive, comfortable and has all of the conveniences one would want. Paola, the house manager, lives just several doors away and is a wealth of information. I would definitely recommend staying here and using it as a base for travel throughout Provence.
Three of us stayed here for one week, ending today. The house is located out in the countryside away from any noise (exception was an owl one or two nights). The home has plenty of room, a well furnished kitchen with plenty of pots and pans if you wish to cook (but a tiny coffeemaker), large family room, and very adequate sized bedrooms. There is fantastic shower and small sink upstairs and separate toilet downstairs. The house has a washing machine and outside clothesline. The house is in a beautiful setting, with many large trees and shrubs.
We had one incident of an overnight storm that knocked out electricity to the house, but the owner, once notified, had a man there within 15 minutes to fix it, and that fellow was superb! He entertained us with stories, some of which, not speaking French, we understood, (and some singing) after the issue was corrected. Our host could not have been any nicer or more considerate to us.
The location is central to many tourist sites: within 15 minutes to Avignon, 25 minutes to Arles, 40 minutes to Nimes, maybe 25 to Pont-du-Gard. So, if you want a good base from which to drive to those places, this is good. If you want to just sit and vegetate in the quiet of the countryside, this is perfect.
One suggestion to the owner: perhaps leave instructions on the use of the washer. We got it to work but instructions would have made it easier. The washing machines in France are different than the ones in the U.S.
We enjoyed our stay in Boulbon and can recommend this house without hesitation.
