About The Hotel

In a hidden corner of Provence, which enjoys on average 300 days of sunshine, Terre Blanche is an idyllic family-friendly property set in 300 acres of countryside with a golf course and world class spa both within the resort. Terre Blanche is designed as a self-contained Provencal village, nestled in a valley with mountain views and although large, has a welcoming and intimate feel, making it a favourite with families. Active guests will enjoy the golf courses and tennis courts, whilst there is relaxation at the spa and pool. Children are well catered for with a kids club and lots of opportunities to enjoy the surrounding countryside.

The heated 600 square metre infinity pool is a spectacle in itself, commanding panoramic views over the countryside and there is also a Jacuzzi and separate childrens’ pool (also heated). The garden spa offers high quality facilities including a hammam and a large indoor pool extended by a vitality pool. Two Dave Thomas designed 18-hole golf courses blend perfectly with the landscape and additional facilities include tennis courts and a programme of fitness classes.

As an all-suite and villa resort, accommodation is designed with space, comfort and privacy in mind and the use of white stone and local red clay creates a warm environment, typical of the local architecture. The large bathrooms have heated floors and separate bath and shower as well as double sink. The Premier Suites have a private terrace and separate living area with sofa bed and the Premier Villas offer extra space for families, with two bathrooms and the option to inter-connect. Prestige villas have a private swimming pool and / or Jacuzzi.

There are four restaurants overseen by Chef Yannick Franques who has experience in some of the most prestigious Michelin starred restaurants in Paris. Yannick is joined by pastry chef Freddy Monier who consistently delights sweet-toothed guests with his original and surprising creations.  The Tousco offers a casual atmosphere near the infinity pool, The Faventia stands out with a refined gourmet cuisine, Gaudina is open for lunch and dinner with live piano music and Caroubiers is a relaxing spot overlooking the golf course and with separate children’s menu.

Close to the tennis courts and golf driving range, the Kids’ Club is open daily from April – September and during school holidays (2 – 12 years). With plenty of indoor and outdoor space (including a protected terrace with a ball pool and heated swimming pool), the Kids’ Club offers artistic and musical activities, botanical explorations, shows, games and other organised activities. In summer, the Pitchoun, a new restaurant at the Tousco, is dedicated to children, offering tasty buffets for lunch. Babysitting is also available.

Terre Blanche is the perfect base from which to explore the South of France. Visit Provence and its villages, museums, festivals, vineyards and local gourmet or take a day trip to Nice or Cannes on the bustling Cote d’Azur.

Reviews

  • AD 21 August 2017 I just wanted to thank you and your colleagues for the organization of our vacation. We had a wonderful time. Terre Blanche was terrific. We had our room right next to the main building and the pool, which was amazingly convenient. The area is really big and we were so glad that we didn't have to walk long distances nor needed to rely on the golf carts.
    Thanks again and hope to be able to book with you again soon.
    Thanks again!

  • MF (travelled August 2015) 10 September 2015 We would score our holiday 5 out of 5, this is quite honestly the first hotel that we are seriously talking about planning our next trip to. Even as part of a two centre stay in France. The Provence is just beautiful, and everything that you would imagine. We had a hire car, which I would thoroughly recommend as the hotel is very rural, and visited lots of mountain top villages in the region. Each had it's own charm and delight to discover. We also made a longer day trip, with the great advice of the hotel concierge, up to the Gorge de Verdon and my goodness we were not disappointed the views took our breath away.

    Regarding the hotel, all of the staff were simply brilliant! Everyone wanted to help, had fun with our 3 year old, and could speak English. Our Son used the kids club once and I visited it to drop him off and collect him - I was very impressed. It was incredibly well equipped, organised and again the staff were impeccable! We stayed in a Premium Suite and were very happy with our living space, with our son sleeping on a sofa bed in the lounge area. We were allocated a suite nearer the golf club (which suited my husband well) and this is a bit of a hike up a hill to the main hotel building but the staff are so attentive at collecting you in a golf buggy that it was never a problem (and created excitement for our son). The grounds of the hotel are beautiful, offering glimpses of wildlife, and my husband was very impressed with the golf playing both courses. I used the spa and again cannot speak highly enough of the friendly staff and immaculate facilities.

    In short we will be back!

    Many thanks to Helen at Tots Too for recommending this hotel as France was not initially somewhere we had thought of, but being 5 months pregnant it made sense not to travel too far away! Our 3rd happy holiday booked through Tots Too!
