A Chic & Peaceful Countryside Retreat, Villa Boulbon features Private Pool & Terraces
Description from the manager
Villa Boulbon is a picturesque luxury retreat located south-west of Avignon within an olive grove. Within driving distance of Aix-en-Provence and Marseilles, you will find no shortage of delectable options for local shopping and dining. Closer by, you will likely want to take some time to visit the famous Abbey of Frigolet and Boulbon village with its small shops and great charm.
Villa Boulbon features a lovely kidney shaped swimming pool with ample sun loungers on the deck. A comfortable alfresco dining area within the shade of trees makes a great place to relish some local wine, cheese and perhaps something freshly grilled on the electric barbeque. The expansive garden makes a great place to just wander around and breathe in the fresh country air. Or soak in the view from the romantic belvedere. Inside, you will find satellite TV and Internet access. The villa also includes table tennis and many outdoor games for children.
The interiors of Villa Boulbon are plush and immaculate throughout. The expansive open plan dining and living areas create a positive flow. In the living room, you can curl up by the fireplace, while the candelabrum above the dining area is a pièce de résistance that casts chiaroscuro motifs around the room. The fully equipped kitchen provides everything required to create a gourmet meal.
Six modern and elegant bedrooms accommodate up to eleven guests at Villa Boulbon. Each bedroom is tastefully decorated and provides quality accoutrements to help ensure a comfortable night of sleep. One of the bedrooms includes access to the terrace, while another features a kitchen, living room with TV and DVD, along with Hi-Fi sound.
Nearby day excursions from Villa Boulbon include a visit to wondrous geological formations such as Gorges du Verdon and cultural experiences like Carrieres de Lumieres where you can be a part of immersive, multi-media artistic experiences. Golf lovers will also be happy to know that they are located only a few minutes from the beautiful eighteen hole course at Provence Country Club. A dream French villa in the countryside awaits!

We expected an English speaking on site manager and although Abdou was very helpful if we had not had our daughter who speaks and understands a little French we would have been lost, specially when a storm cut out all electricity for a day and we had no water at all for the same amount of time. It also blew two hot plates on the stove top which took a week to repair. Luxury retreats should not send English speakers to this villa - it would be a nightmare of communication and there is a lot one needs to know eg alarm for pool, intercom for electric gates etc etc. - Susanne C., ,

I\'m so pleased with Luxury Retreats. The website was very accurate with plenty of pictures of the property. Everyone I spoke with was well informed, helpful and readily available. The house was well outfitted with towels, toiletries, cleaning products (but low on automatic dishwashing detergent and paper towels) and kitchen utensils and crockery. The follow-up prior to leaving and during our stay was reassuring. I will definitely use Luxury Retreats for all my rental needs and will recommend you to all my friends.

Villa Boulbon is a delightful villa. It has most things that you need, lovely furnishings, good beds and lovely grounds. It is located in the countryside, 20 minutes outside of Avignon. It is extremely hard to find with no markers. However, once you find it, it is delightful. I would definitely suggest a GPS system with your rental car. Abdu is the on-site manager but does not speak English so we had a communication problem. Fortunately, not much went wrong. We did not request a meal upon arrival or any stocking of groceries but was charged 220E for dinner and ingredients when we arrived which was unexpected and very expensive for 2 baked chickens and a casserole, Otherwise, we had a lovely holiday. I would highly recommend Villa Boulbon. Pascal and Laura were a great help in making the booking process easy. Any correspondence was answered immediately.\nMany thanks to them both!
