TERRE BLANCHE HÔTEL SPA GOLF RESORT *****,
opened in 2004 as a resort run by Four Seasons before becoming an independent property in 2012.
With so much surrounding beauty in the hills of the Provence region in the south of France, it’s hard not to fall for the charms of Terre Blanche. Actor Sean Connery did when he originally bought the land that eventually became the resort.
Terre Blanche golf club is for the golf lovers one of the most prestigious golf in the world. The two 18-hole championship golf courses were designed by Dave Thomas and inspired by the natural surroundings.
They perfectly blend into the landscape. Their beauty and high quality as well as their perfect maintenance are truly impressive. The courses are well-integrated at the heart of a preserved site.
This paradise for golfers combines performance and pleasure of the game in a stunning environment.
