Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort isn’t just an award-winning, five-star property in the South of France (although that would certainly be enough to lure in many a discerning traveler); it is practically a Provençal village unto itself. The 750-acre resort contains 115 luxurious suites and villas, tennis courts, four restaurants, two pools, a full-service spa and fitness center and two 18-hole golf courses. It is also serenely enveloped by lush greenery and majestic mountain views, making it nearly impossible to avoid moments of pure tranquility during a stay.
Among the 115 rooms are 90 suites, all connected by fragrant garden pathways. Each features a living area, separate bedroom with king or double beds, large bathrooms with a soaking tub and free standing shower, and a private terrace perfect for taking in the peaceful vistas. Villas are also available with up to three bedrooms and include a sofa bed in the lounge area, indoor/outdoor dining, a fully functioning kitchen, private pool and Jacuzzi. The neutral color palette and terra-cotta accents create a soothing environment in which to unwind after a day of exploring or taking in a round of golf.
The ultimate place to unwind on property however, would have to be the 35,000-square-foot spa featuring a menu of therapies inspired by Provence using Carita and Ivo Pitanguy products. This expansive haven features 14 treatment rooms including two romantic couples suites complete with a hammam, Jacuzzi and private balcony. Along with a 65-foot heated indoor swimming pool, the spa also offers an outdoor vitality pool, sauna, laconium, ice and tropical showers, hair salon, and manicure and pedicure stations.
The 750-acre estate is home to two championship par-72 courses conceived by renowned golf course designer Dave Thomas. Opened in 2004, Le Château is a 7,235-yard course revered as one of the best in continental Europe, while Le Riou is 6,567 yards and offers views of the villages of Pays de Fayence. Both will find even the most experienced golfer challenged by their water features, fast greens, and vast bunkers. A training center is available to those looking to brush up on their skills before they hit the fairways.
Terre Blanche’s restaurants invite guests into four very different dining experiences, from casual to fine-dining. Le Faventia serves Mediterranean cuisine with ingredients fresh to each season and local to the area, all appropriately paired with wines from their cellar’s impressive collection.
Le Gaudina offers a livelier atmosphere where guests are found sipping craft cocktails and international dishes while lounging inside the restaurant or al fresco on the open air terrace. Two additional options include the casual Le Tousco, a summertime-only spot next to the infinity pool, and Les Caroubiers overlooking the 18th green of Le Riou on the first floor of the Club House.
Serenity, sophistication, sport and world-class service are at the crux of this five-star hotel in the South of France. In close proximity to Cannes and the French Riviera, Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort is a great home base for exploring the region, or just as ideal for taking in the area’s natural beauty right on site. One stay and you might never say “Au revoir.”
