Cour du Baron at Les Bordes Estate in the Loire Valley, France, is a first-of-its-kind opportunity to own a home at one of the most exceptional private golf communities in the world. Surrounded by natural surroundings in a forest located in Saint-Laurent-Nouan, the 1,400-acre (560-hectare) property is roughly twice the size of New York’s Central Park. Les Bordes is one of the largest privately-owned estates in all of France.
Private real estate communities featuring world-class golf courses, spas and other resort-quality amenities have long existed in the United States, from Sea Island, Georgia to Hilton Head Island in South Carolina and the Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, Montana. However, in Europe, this has not been the case—that is, until now. Newly built luxury homes are a rarity in France, especially in the Loire Valley where historic castles, manor houses and large estates are the norm. So the opportunity to have a newly built home at a private estate with world class golf and an abundance of amenities in a desirable location in France is unique, to say the least, especially in the Loire Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
