The historical city of Bordeaux is in the heart of the wine growing and wine producing region. With Classical 18th century architecture and a UNESCO-protected historical old town, it is well worth a trip. Being a port city, it also has historical influences from all over the world which have left their mark on city culture. As a result, it is a true heaven for foodies: world renowned oysters from Arcachon bay, Basque country and Spanish influences from across the nearby border, truffles and walnuts from the Dordogne, locally cultivated saffron, white asparagus, sweet macarons from Saint Emilion and of course Bordeaux wines to suit all tastes.
Château Le Petit Verdus is nestled deep in the heart of the Bordeaux wine producing region – “Entre-deux-Mers” – between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers. Built in the 19th Century, the Château has been meticulously restored and oozes French character and charm. Facilities include a tennis court, swimming pool, horse paddock and a gym/sauna. You can also take a peaceful stroll around the 50-acre grounds, woodlands, lawns and 10 acres of vineyards.
Golf is all around, with courses at Médoc, Teynac and Saint Emilion
all close by.
⛳Golf de Teynac is located less than 10 minutes from the Château and this is the perfect course to have a warmup round or to hit some balls at the start of the tour.
⛳Golf du Medoc has 2 spectacular courses to play, the Championship “Les Châteaux” and “Les Vignes” courses. Designed by Bill Coore and Rod Whitman respectively, these two courses offer exceptional golf on perfectly maintained greens.
⛳Saint Emilion, ranked in the Top 10 golf courses in France by Golf Digest USA, is also nearby and will truly delight. Designed by famous golf course architect, Tom Doak, you will fall in love with this challenging course.
Comments from a previous client on Saint Emilion was that “this course was simply magnificent” with “spectacular views”.
EXPERIENCES OFF THE GOLF COURSE
Wine tours at local Châteaux, a walking tour and shopping in beautiful Bordeaux, a 5-course dinner at famous Le Saint James restaurant, a guided tour at Saint Emilion – all handpicked experiences to highlight the beauty and splendour of this region. There may even be the possibility to have a hot air balloon ride high above rolling hills and vineyards of Bordeaux.
