There are around 30 golf courses in the Loire Valley. Close to a park, a château or a nature site, they take you on a voyage around a mosaic of landscapes. Less than an hour from Paris the Valley Loire offers the chance of combining a golf tour with relaxation. Discover lush green golf courses in colourful landscapes between famous Chateaus and celebrate your pars and birdies later with a Sancerre wine. Get your clubs for a perfect golf vacation or short break.
Being home to 54 golf courses gives Aquitaine a certain “je ne sais quoi” where to start your golf tour. The region has indeed acquired quite a reputation over the years, thanks to the exceptional geographical location and varied environments of its courses – from vineyards to seaside hills and just about everything in between. One could spend an entire summer touring Aquitaine’s gourmet towns, notable landmarks and assorted golf courses and still not manage to do everything. Enthusiastic golf travellers will find solace at the five star Domaine golfique du Grand Saint-Émilionnais, dubbed “among the most anticipated new courses in the world for 2015” by Golf Magazine USA.
