Golden Golf Destinations 2023: Luxurious Links Well Worth the Trip
In the ultimate live on the links fantasy, Les Bordes Estate announces launch of sales at Cour du Baron, a collection of luxury residences in France’s famed Loire Valley. Imagine home ownership near a UNESCO World Heritage Site, access to Six Senses Loire Valley resort amenities, all only steps from elite championship golf courses.
Artfully crafted by acclaimed architecture firm Michaelis Boyd to honor the historic Loire Valley region, discerning clientele will be lured by the lauded estate within the mythical Sologne forest. Cour du Baron’s single-family residences represent a first-of-its-kind opportunity to own a home within one of the most compelling private communities in France. Residents are presented with a future-forward home ownership experience within the storied backdrop of a historic gem, offering endless recreation, and relaxation. Construction – led by VINCI – is well underway at Cour du Baron. Many of the homes have already been reserved by Les Bordes Golf Club members, though the first phases of residences are now available for purchase, with move-ins starting in early 2024.
The estate encompasses the globally recognized Les Bordes Golf Club, which features world renowned championship courses including the New Course by Gil Hanse and the Old Course by the late Robert von Hagge, in addition to Cour du Baron, and will be home to the newest Six Senses Hotels Resorts and Spas – a pioneer of sustainable hospitality – featuring spacious guest suites, villas, and branded residences among the lush forest landscape.
This will include a stately Châteaux for fine dining, a lounge bar that reflects the traditions of the region, a Six Senses Spa with signature treatments and a medicinal garden, an organic kitchen garden and Earth Lab encompassing the resort’s conservation initiatives, and elegant event facilities, providing residents with extraordinary resort services and amenities only steps from their homes as a part of the Les Bordes Estate private community.
Les Bordes Golf Club’s elite courses are as unforgettable as they are challenging with fairways weaving between the forest, glimpses of red deer, pheasants, and sweeping lakes. The Old Course is widely considered to be Robert Von Hagge’s masterpiece, it has been consistently ranked amongst the top three golf courses in Europe over the past 30 years. It carves a tree-lined, 7,009-yard, par-72 course through the rolling Sologne forest. The New Course opened in 2021 and has been named among GOLF Magazine’s Top 100 Courses in the World.
