Les Bordes Golf Club The Sologne – the ancient forest in the heart of the Loire Valley. Here in the seclusion and beauty of the former hunting estate of Baron Bich, lies an extraordinary golfing retreat. Welcomed by the Rodin sculpture beside the putting green and by the warmth of the staff at reception, you know you are in a special place. You are one and a half hours, and an entire world away from Paris. It’s not only the tranquillity that’s remarkable at the Les Bordes Golf Club. The centerpiece is a woodland golf course that is consistently ranked among the finest in Europe. Designed by Robert van Haage at his most inventive, water shimmers on 12 of its 18 holes. (Les Bordes is a private golf club and only on special request you might get the chance for stay and play).
