Côte d’Azur, France
Located in the eastern side of Provence, and only 45 minutes from Nice International Airport, Terre Blanche spreads out over 750 acres of lush nature, facing hilltop medieval villages and the Provencal countryside. As a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, this peaceful luxury destination prides itself in being one of the most prestigious golf clubs in the world.
The two 18-hole golf courses – both designed by former Ryder Cup player Dave Thomas – are set in stunning surroundings and bring together performance and love for the game. Le Château runs over 6,616 metres with bunkers, water hazards and greens worthy of a championship course, and is considered to be the more challenging of the two manicured courses. The second course at Terre Blance is Le Riou, which is reserved exclusively for hotel guests and members and offers a slightly different game. High above the valley, Le Riou is a technical course with hilly, winding fairways and fast greens that reward strategic and precise play. In addition, the resort boasts a one-of-a-kind Albatros Golf Performance Centre, labelled ‘European Tour Performance Institute’ complete with a Leadbetter Academy and a Biomecaswing Centre where you can enjoy unique training facilities and sophisticated analyses.
Off the course, you would appreciate the five-star hotel made of villas designed as a charming Provencal village with flourished coble stone alleyways amidst peaceful gardens. In harmony with nature, every suite has alluring views, luxury space, comfort, privacy and large terraces but the 600m2 infinity pool, with its awe-inspiring backdrop, is without doubt the resort’s masterpiece.
