The Experience

Walk in to light flooding in through large windows and plenty of different places to sit, with chairs and board games on the landing sitting areas or in the cosy drawing room beside the dining room. Breakfast is served inside or out and consists of charcuterie, a cheeseboard, yogurt, breads and pastries, freshly-cooked pancakes, eggs however you want them, homemade jams.

Wander through the manicured garden with its huge plane trees, smooth lawns and clipped topiary to the pool area, where you’ll also find a jacuzzi. Here you can have a massage with a bit of notice. A fresh, seasonal menu with cheese is served for dinner every day but Saturday, and twice a week you can opt for a full three courses too. There are good brasserie-style restaurants in town.

Owner Sylvie lives in a nearby apartment and has electric bikes for you to borrow. Cycle paths lead everywhere including onto the Via Rhôna – along the river. Return to sober yet elegant bedrooms with views.

Accommodation

Reviews

When Sylvie told me about the picturesque village square and cafe next door, where tourists and locals, pastis in hand, join to play an evening game of Petanque under the giant plane trees, I wanted more than ever to stay in this beautiful hotel. This is secret Provence, a rare and very special address indeed!

Location

The neighbourhood

The village has long views over the hills and no large roads rushing through it, so is quiet and safe to walk around. You could have a walking holiday without need of a car but there are some stunning villages to visit within a half hour drive, including Uzès and Arles. Enjoy vineyards, abbeys and châteaux, Roman architecture and swimming in the Gard river.

Introducing

Sylvie Faurel & Stéphane Coisne

Sylvie is from this area, her mother is Greek and she met her husband, Stéphane, when she worked in the North of France. They have always holidayed here in Boulbon and one day when she heard this hotel was for sale she decided to snap it up. They have good knowledge of the local area so do ask for recommendations about where to eat and what to visit.
