Amidst breathtaking scenery, enjoy a special golf and wine experience during a delightful four day and four night trip to Provence.
From the hinterland to the coast, this 225km route takes lovers of the open air, golfing greens and fine wines and food on a voyage of discovery as they explore the region’s simpler pleasures and highlights.
First stop: Barbaroux Golf Course. In the heart of Provence Verte and Verdon, this undulating and wooded 18-hole course sits in a remarkable natural setting. And with an adjoining hotel boasting 52 elegant rooms, as well as a wellness centre, this is the perfect place to both play golf and relax!
Next day it’s time for a wine tasting at Château des Demoiselles, where you’ll discover Côte de Provence AOP wines. The sensory experience continues in Roquebrune-sur-Argens with a visit to the Museum of Chocolate and Cocoa and the Maison du terroir. As for relaxation, there’s golf and a spa to enjoy! Both can be found at Domaines de Saint-Endréol with its 150-hectares of playing field and relaxation spaces. Roquebrune Golf Resort, a jewel in the Côte d’Azur's crown, organises an aperitif masterclass focusing on Château Vaudois wines and grape varieties produced in Provence’s terroir.
On the third day you’re off to family-run Château de l’Aumérade, a producer of Crus Classés wines. The trip continues with a stop in the flower-filled streets of Bormes-les-Mimosas, a village perched on a rocky outcrop. And finally, Domaine de Jasson, whose olive oil is produced from an olive grove planted in a former vineyard.
The journey draws to a close between Toulon and Bandol. After climbing Mont Faon via cable car and visiting the Memorial to the Allied Landings in Provence, steer course towards the Bandol wines oenotheque, a space dedicated to local terroirs and wines. And what better way to finish the trip in style than to practice your swing on one of the Dolce Frégate Provence Golf Club's courses, complete with sea view? As the sun sets, you can even enjoy an aperitif served at the 10th hole.
When it comes to wine and golf, Provence certainly pulls out all the stops!
