Les Bordes Offers More Than Golf
In France’s Loire Valley, Les Bordes Estate Offers More Than Golf
The luxury vacation home market is a fickle one. What’s the best way to entice it? Perhaps with a parcel of newly built homes boasting an architectural pedigree, world-class golf, a private castle, horseback-riding, and frolicking goats. To set the stage, there’s an illustrious history that begins with a baron behind a pen empire. This is the recently transformed Les Bordes Estate, an internationally recognized golf course founded in 1986 by Baron Marcel Bich in France’s scenic Loire Valley.
Les Bordes Estate’s new ambition to become a community for second homeowners is aided by a prime location. Celebrated for picturesque landscapes and a copious amount of vineyards to pause for a glass of wine along the Loire River, the Loire Valley is accessible as a weekend getaway from Paris. The 1,400-acre property (90 minutes by car) also resides in a region packed full of Michelin star restaurants (20, the Estate’s marketing material touts).
