“Perfectly relaxed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2010

This was our second visit to La Bastide and the new owners Jan and Marie Claire have made things even better than before. Every detail is focused on providing you with a peaceful haven for relaxation. After long leisurely breakfasts we found it hard to tear ourselves away from the peaceful surroundings for the sights which abound in all directions. We look forward to renewing acquaintance and seeing the changes that are planned for this lovely property.

Fabulous country house hotel beautifully and tastefully restored in a gorgeous garden setting with small pool. Ideal for exploring the Camargue, Arles, Avignon, Nimes, and adjacent Provence. Boulbon village is also very attractive, relaxing, and photogenic (and not at all touristy) Very personal attention from owners Jan and Marie Clair. We shall return!

We just returned from a magical five days at La Bastide de Boulbon. Our little girl (who is almost three) is convinced both Marie Claire and Jan (the owners of this magical place) are a fairy princess and her prince.
This is fantastic boutqiue hotel tucked beneath a fairty tale chateau in a most darling Provencal medieval village, Boulbon. The delightful breakfasts in their beautiful manicured garden allows you to start your day dreaming of wondrous possibilities. Their dinners are even more magical by candlelight and listening to the bells ring every half hour reminding you this is all real and not a dream.
Travelling with a toddler was made so easy by Marie Claire and Jan. Always accomodating and making sure we were pleased.
We know we will be back to this magical place...

After looking at many hotels in St Remy, I decided to try this hotel, about 15kms away and I was not disappointed. The hotel is everything you want when visiting Provence, beautifully furnished, lovely gardens and pool, friendly service and fantastic food. Sitting on the pebbled terrace having dinner, overlooking the garden, was probably the best experience of my 5 week honeymoon to France.

Thank you to the owners who made our experience truly wonderful. We did have a very small issue with our room not being made up but the owners fixed it straight away, showing why their rating on this forum is so high. I would return in a second.

If you do stay here, take the back road through the mountains to St Remy and other villages. It is a really great drive.

For the second year in a row my wife and me had a great ten days escape from reality at la Bastide de Boulbon.

A lot of things have changed since last year, the new owners did a terrific job giving the garden a touch of Eden and turning the hotel into a castle on a cloud... .
The hospitality was of such a kind it double-crossed every meaning of the word kindness. I don't have enough words to describe this indescribable experience...

Back to real life! Back to work! And whenever it gets tough I think of those days at la Bastide de Boulbon!

I recently traveled to the South of France to attend a wedding with a childhood friend of mine. The wedding took place in Avignon, so we were given a list of places to stay in the surrounding towns of Tarascon and Boulbon. I checked out all of the accommodations online and was drawn back to the second place on my list...Hotel La Bastide de Boulbon. I looked over some key French phrases and picked up the phone. I knew the minute I spoke to Marie-Claire that this would be the hotel I would be staying at. Marie-Claire and her husband Jan are the proprietors of La Bastide and I must say, two of the most wonderful, hard-working, caring, down-to-earth people I ever met. As soon as we stepped out of the car they were there to greet us with true warmth and friendship in their eyes. Their home (the hotel) was just that- a chateau overflowing with quaintness, hospitality, beauty and the delicious aromas of meals prepared with care and attention to detail. The grounds were beautiful and manicured by Jan himself- everyday tending to the lawn, the pool, the plants and the olive trees that just arrived from Spain. Marie-Claire waited on us with a smile on her face everyday. She moved with the grace of a butterfly and when she smiled I felt her energy and happiness and the great love she had for this "home" she made so welcoming for all her visitors.
Words truly cannot express this treasure of a place tucked into the mountainside of Boulbon beneath a large castle high up on the hill. It was a magical experience for me...I hope to visit Marie-Claire and Jan in the near future. The Hotel La Bastide de Boulbon far exceeded my expectations in every way...beauty, cleanliness, kindness, quaint country breakfasts, unbelievably delicious dinners and charm beyond anything I experienced anywhere.

Merci my friends ...Merci...

This wonderful boutique hotel, with a delightful garden a pool, offers all the creature-comforts of a 5 star hotel. Add to that the delightful owners, Marie-Clair and Jan - who go out of their way to be exemplary hosts - and nothing is wanting. For a relaxing time away from the madding crowds, yet within easy striking distance of cities such a Avignon, this hotel provides a perfect place to stay.
