It’s a kind of resort that you rarely find in France: 300 hectares in the heart of Provence, which blooms lavender and resonates with the song of cicadas. To accommodate families, it offers comfortable villas, a kids club, an incredible pool with views of the mountains… An ideal place to extend or kick off your summer holiday.
3 good reasons to pack your bags for Terre Blanche
For the exceptional arrangement of the resort, a new kind of resort, with a golf course and luxury villas. For a bit of history, the land was acquired in the 1970s by Sean Connery, who fell in love with the Provençal lands of Fayence. The estate, since taken over by a German art collector, offers its guests one of the most beautiful golf courses in Europe,its clubhouse, a swimming pool with a breathtaking view of the surrounding countryside, four restaurants (including the exceptional cuisine found at Faventia) and a spa renowned for the quality of its treatments and its beautiful indoor pool. To circulate in the heart of the resort, thought of as a small Provençal village, golf carts with a driver are at your disposal: a detail that always seduces the children, delighted to go to the kids club in their little electric car.
For the kids club open from March to November, a very attractive point if you know how difficult it is to find a hotel in France with kids club that’s open out of season. The children’s activities change every day, with a creative and varied program: making soap, picking lavender, painting workshops … The little guests even have a swimming pool which is exclusively reserved for them, and they can have their lunch in a restaurant which is dedicated to them, accompanied by their highly competent and smiling waiters, who will be able to be able to make even the most shy children open up.
For the services and activities offered, which ease a families’ stay and offer parents a real holiday, too. Between the gourmet breakfast served every morning in the hotel restaurant and that children love, the playground with slides and swings, the family rooms with terrace, the room service cart, its children’s menu and the paddling pool for the little ones, the resort plays the role of a kid-friendly hotel down to the last detail. A special mention is the spa, whose pool is reserved for adults until 2 pm—the perfect opportunity to drop the kids at the kids club in the morning to enjoy one of the resort’s signature massages.
A hotel ideal for…
… families who want to get away and relax while receiving quality service. The offerings of the resort make it possible to share moments with your children while allowing for a getaway, as a couple or for yourself.
When to go? While summer is obviously a beautiful season to enjoy Provence, the late season is also a great opportunity to stay. The pool is heated and open until mid-November, so you can fully enjoy the Indian summer: ideal for families with young children, who want to avoid the crowd of high season.
