JEU DE BOULES

Spend a day among our great gardens playing a leisurely game of Jeu De Boules, also known as, Petanque. At Ilboru, we have interweaved this classic sport of Southern France into our elegant atmosphere, for all visitors to enjoy. The name Petanque comes from the French-term, pieds tanques, meaning, stuck feet. This is because while playing, the feet must remain fixed together within a small circle. The purpose of the game is to throw a metal ball as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet. It is a simple game that tests your motor skills and offers reason to celebrate a bit. If you are a Jeu De Boules player, you will surely feel at home here. If not, perhaps you will be after your stay at Ilboru Safair Lodge.
