The 750-acre luxury resort on an outstanding estate in the south of France is the gateway to Provence and the Riviera. As the only property of its kind in the region, it is embracing its independence and unparalleled five-star offering with refined hospitality rooted in authenticity and nature. Terre Blanche’s unrivalled location enables guests to experience the charm and character of Provence as well as the chic of the Côte d’Azur. 45 Minutes from Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport, it is the ideal destination from which to explore the south of France.

As well as a Jacuzzi and a cocktail bar there is an additional Pool Cabana where guests can indulge in a poolside massage. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and encompassing two stories is the 35,000 square foot Spa itself, one of ‘The Leading Spas of The World’. The Spa has 12 treatment rooms and 2 couple suites and offers a variety of treatments, including the world’s first chemical-free anti aging facial by Sodashi or Ivo Pitanguy. Personal fitness trainers provide ‘body sculpting’ classes, aqua fitness, yoga and pilates.

For the younger members of the family, Terre Blanche’s Kids’ Club has its own heated pool with a variety of activities suitable for 2-12 year-olds. These include discovering the local flora a fauna within the extensive grounds; visiting the resort’s very own donkeys; workshops exploring the local arts and sports, such as the typically Provençal game of pétanque or 'boules'; and a video games room with home cinema. Terre Blanche, a European Tour Destination, was voted 2013’s ‘Golf Resort of the Year – Europe’ because of its state of the art golf facilities. Considered by many to be Terre Blanche’s piece de résistance, there are two 18 hole championship golf courses both of which were designed by Dave Thomas. The resort also boasts a one of a kind training and performance centre, which is the first ever to have received European Tour Performance Institute (ETPI) status. Inaugurated in March 2004, the ‘Le Château’ course is listed as one of the best in continental Europe. The course is 6616 metres / 7235 yards long and stands out for its spectacular water features; ravines; vast, rapid greens; and great bunkers of white sand. The second course, ‘Le Riou’, has steep fairways and elaborate greens and is both technically challenging and fun. Calling for a large variety of strokes, this spectacular 6005-metre / 6567-yard course requires a strong game strategy. Terre Blanche provides the ideal environment to do business and enjoy world class support services in a private and relaxed environment. With a variety of offerings for business and incentive travel, the hotel features 7 meeting rooms (4 with terraces): 760 square metres of private functions space for up to 280 guests.
