Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort: Escape and unwind amid the five-star splendour of one of Europe's finest golf resorts.
Irresistible and enchanting, Provence and the Côte d'Azur is the perfect setting for Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort, regularly voted one of the best golf resorts in Europe. It's also just 45 minutes from Nice International Airport.
As a European Tour Destination, this true golfers' paradise is set in stunning surroundings and brings together performance and love for the game. It is also home to the Albatros Golf Performance Center, the only European Tour Performance Institute certified in Europe.
The centre comprises a two-storey driving range, the just-opened Terre Blanche Golf Academy completed with the Biomecaswing Center, headed by Jean- Jacques Rivet, where all players, from beginners to touring professionals, can enjoy unique training facilities and sophisticated analyses.
Combining the use of biomechanics and state-of-the-art technology, the Biomecaswing concept facilitates the immediate detection of postural imbalances affecting the golf swing and offers corrective solutions from the very first session. It is no surprise that famous players cross the Atlantic and come from all around the world to enjoy these unique facilities.
The two 18-hole golf courses, Le Château and Le Riou, have been designed by former Ryder Cup player Dave Thomas, who capitalised on the existing landscape and natural features. Le Château, which is known to be the more demanding of the two, runs over 7,235 yards with bunkers, water hazard and greens worthy of a championship course. It rewards precision and length both off the tee and on approach and give a true taste of the game at a high level.
Le Riou, at 6,567 yards, is shorter and offers a slightly different challenge, with spectacular views on the picturesque hilltop villages of Le Pays de Fayence. This technical course with hilly, winding fairways and fast greens is exclusively reserved for Club Members and hotel guests.
Once you've tired of golfing, retreat to the Terre Blanche Spa for an hour or so of calm and relaxation. Surrounded by luxurious greenery, this Provençal villa is a sanctuary of well-being that has all the treatments could dream of from anti- ageing facials by VALMONT to aqua fitness, yoga and Pilates.
If you fancy a dip, there's a 20-metre indoor pool and an outdoor vitality pool with air beds. You will also find a hammam, a laconium and a mani/pedi station as well as a Tea-room, not to mention a vast fitness room and tropical showers.
Off the course, you will appreciate the five-star hotel comprised of villas designed as a charming Provençal village with flourished cobble stone alleyways amidst peaceful gardens. Once you have stepped in this fragrant garden, you'll soon be feeling like you never want to leave this sacred oasis.
In harmony with nature, every suite has alluring views, luxury space, comfort, privacy and large terraces, but the 600sqm infinity pool, with its awe- inspiring backdrop, is without doubt the resort's true masterpiece.
