Splendid isolation in the South of France

Château de Taulane - Hotel & Golf Course

Chateau de Taulane

The Hotel

High in the mountains, on a broad flat plain above the Cote d'Azur, there sits a millionaires hideaway. Once inside the thick stone walls of the chateau the real world seems an eternity away. The Chateau de Taulane has everything you could need for a sojourn in privacy and exclusivity: golf course, spa, swimming pool, a truly gastronomic restaurant (the chef purchases more truffles per year than anyone else in the world!). A serene establishment.

Bedrooms are either in the chateau itself, the dépendances, or there are four, fully equipped, two-bedroomed villas alongside the 1st fairway.

Should you not wish to drive from Nice airport we can arrange helicopter transfers for you and to outlying golf courses.

The Course

Chateau de Taulane - 9th & 18th double greenChateau de Taulane  Architect: G. Player. 18 holes: 6423m: par 72.

The Taulane course is a beautiful course in a beautiful setting. On a reasonably level plateau at 1,000m above sea-level the air is cool and clear (plus the ball flies that little bit further...). Gary Player has shaped the holes wonderfully to fit the terrain and the addition of several lakes around the course means that danger lurks in many corners.

Other courses to play

Should you wish to venture out from the sheltered enclave of the Chateau the course at Grasse (Claux Amic) is roughly half-an-hour away.

Architect : J-P. Fourès.
18 holes: 6021m: par 72.
High above Cannes and overlooking Grasse and the Med. Reasonably hilly with superb views - now back in prime condition.

Grasse Golf Club

Alternatively, there is the magnificent drive through the gorges to St. Endréol...

St. Endréol
Architect: M. Gayon.
18 holes: 6219m: par 72.
Set back from the coast in the cool, pink hills. Spectacular holes that rise and fall through the first folds of the distant Alpilles.

The Area

South of France - Alpilles

This region of Provence is all mountains, gorges, rivers, lakes and pines. Wonderful scenery in which to just drive out and get lost for the day. The local town of Castellane has a few extra options for dining - should truffles and foie gras everyday prove too rich for you! Heading downhill, you will come to the scented town of Grasse where the majority of France's perfumeries are based.
