South East France

We’ve grouped the regions of Auvergne, Languedoc-Roussillon, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur and Rhône-Alpes to create the South East area of France. Stretching from the French Alps to the Côte d'Azur, the South East area of France is the destination of choice for mountain-sports enthusiasts, sun seekers and gastronomes.

From a golf course perspective, Provence is perhaps the premier region and at Vidauban you’ll find (if invited) one of the country’s most private golf clubs and also one of the country’s most accessible facilities. It may be tricky to get a game at Prince de Provence, but it’s resort golf at its absolute finest at the 36-hole Four Seasons Terre Blanche.

Heading down to the south of France you’ll find the Pete Dye and PB Dye layout at Barbaroux, Léonard Morandi and Donald Harradine’s Nimes-Campagne, Robert von Hagge’s Royal Royal Mougins and the highly regarded Gary Player-designed Chateau de Taulane among numerous other fine French golf courses.
