Between Nantes and La Baule, the Domaine de la Bretesche is practiced all year round. High class.
Club ride in hand
Bucolic at will, the 18-holes of this French-style resort stretch around a 15th century castle, in a forest of hundred-year-old trees. Oaks, maple trees, liquidambars and acacias are regularly planted there, while beds of rhododendrons, roses and hydrangeas bloom in all seasons. Golf has also just offered a signature hole, the 17, a par 3 whose green is now bordered by a huge water hazard.
From € 55 the green fee, € 67 with lunch, € 46 on Tuesday.
5 star refuge
Accommodation on site is also magical. The outbuildings of the castle house a 5-star Relais & Château offering an indoor swimming pool, a spa and a gourmet restaurant, driven by Frédéric Murati, ex-double star at the Michelin Guide in Belgium. In an exemplary eco-responsible approach, he cooks the products of his vegetable garden in permaculture and puts Atlantic fish in the spotlight, all from sustainable fishing. For a more rural stay, we like cottages scattered in the forest.
From € 235 for 2 people. The Greening package includes one night, breakfasts and green fees. bretesche.com
