Chateau de Taulane | NCG Top 100s: European Golf Resorts

Chateau de Taulane is one of the leading French golfing resorts, and it is well deserving of its place on the NCG Top 100 European Golf Resorts list. The 18th Century Chateau looks over the resort, which has a stunning championship golf course designed by Gary Player, spa facilities, and incredible views of the region.

Starting with the Chateau itself, which is a glorious building. In the heart of more than 800 acres, the Chateau is at the centre of the resort. There are 29 rooms and suites inside the Chateau, all gloriously decorated in the traditional Provencal style. 18 more rooms are situated in the former stables, which are now a charming manor house, and feature the same decoration, with a contemporary touch.

The Chateau is also the home to a spa and wellness facility, where guests are invited to relax and unwind during their stay in the Var region. Chateau de Taulane’s Spa has a range of facilities, including saunas, jacuzzis, hammams and more, along with two certified therapists on hand for massages and beauty treatments.

The championship golf course at Chateau de Taulane is one of the best in the country. The Gary Player design, which was opened in the early 1990s, offers challenges to golfers of all levels. Narrow, tree-lined fairways open up to greens that are guarded by water and sand. The double green in front of the clubhouse features both the 9th and 18th holes, in what is a stunning finish to the course. There is also a wonderful Golf Academy, with Head Professional Alexis Noudeu on hand to offer lessons, in the incredible short game area and driving range.

Chateau de Taulane Overview | NCG Top 100s: European Golf Resorts

A Gary Player Design

The championship golf course at Chateau de Taulane is yet another on the NCG Top 100 European Golf Resorts list to be designed by nine-time major champion Gary Player. The course is set into the hillside, more than 1,000 metres above sea level.

The golf course at Chateau de Taulane winds its way through the trees, offering up views of the picturesque countryside. At around 6,800 yards, it isn’t the longest course, and thanks to the altitude that the resort is set at, shots will go further due to the thinner air. That’s certainly something to keep in mind when you’re playing at Chateau de Taulane.

One of the unique things about the course at Chateau de Taulane is that the 9th and 18th both play back to the clubhouse, and on a double green. 

It plays much like the same holes on the Majlis at Emirates Golf Club, where the Hero Dubai Desert Classic is played on the DP World Tour. At Chateau de Taulane, the two holes wind around a lake to finish on a glorious double green in front of the clubhouse. This is one of seven lakes that are in play on the course. 

Chateau de Taulane Golf Academy

Along with the championship golf course, there is also a wonderful Golf Academy with great practice facilities. The driving range has both matted (covered) and grass (uncovered) tees to allow practice in all conditions, as golfers aim to hone their long game skills.

There is also a stunning short game area, with four greens for approach and chipping to, along with three bunkers of differing distances and depths to allow for intricate practice before a round. There is a large putting green by the clubhouse, to help players get ready before teeing off.

Beginners and experienced golfers can also take up the option of having a lesson with PGA-qualified professional Alexis Noudeu. He offers a wide range of lessons, from driving range to short game, for both individuals and groups. There is also the opportunity to get out onto the course and learn about course management and shot selection.

Chateau de Taulane Hotel

There is a 4-star hotel, which is housed in the 18th Century Chateau de Taulane. The hotel offers guests a stay which has a combination of ancient charm and modern luxury. 

There are 47 rooms in total at the resort, with 29 of those being set in the Chateau itself. These rooms all offer a chic and cosy atmosphere and are decorated in the traditional Provencal style. This charm and authenticity is something that is quite unique compared to the majority of resorts on the NCG Top 100 European Golf Resorts list.

There are also 18 further rooms in the outbuildings and former stables of the property, which has since been transformed into a manor house. These are decorated in the same style, with all of these rooms having stunning views over the golf course.

The Spa at Chateau de Taulane

Not only is there a hotel, but there is also a spa and wellness facility inside the 18th Century Chateau de Taulane, and it has free access for guests who are staying at the resort.

The spa facilities include saunas, hammams, a jacuzzi and a heated indoor swimming pool, while there is a team of certified therapists on hand to offer massages and treatments to help guests relax, unwind and de-stress during their stay.
