About the neighbourhood
The town of Boulbon (population 1600) is steeped in history and was first mentioned in the history books in the 11th century. It lies some 16 kilometres south west of Avignon and close to many well known provencal landmarks such as St Rémy-de-Provence, Les Baux-de-Provence, Nîmes and Arles. To the west lies the Rhône plain, ideal for cycling, and to the east the hills of La Montagnette with marvellous walks and mountain bike tracks. Mediterranean coastal resorts such as Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer are about an hours drive. The nature reserves of the Camargue are about half an hour as is the famous Roman aqueduct Pont du Gard. The town offers the following facilities - Mini Supermarket - Baker - Butcher - Chemist - Hairdresser/Beauty Salon - Hotel/Restaurant, La Bastide du Boulbon...
Getting around
Although there is a limited local bus service to Avignon and Tarascon we thoroughly recommend the use of a car to visit the local area. 5 Bicycles are available for guest use and are ideal for visiting surrounding villages in the flat Rhone valley.
