golf teeAre you looking for a golfing holiday on the French Riviera?  Then look no further as within half an hour of Lou Messugo self catering apartment there are no less than 14 golf courses.  This means you can book a two week holiday here and play on a different course every day.

And if that’s not reason enough let me tell you more.  The Riviera is blessed with 300 days of sunshine a year and a mild winter making it possible to play all year round.  The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful with sweeping views of mountains and/or the azure blue Mediterranean sea from many fairways and greens.  In fact there are more than 60 clubs and practices on the Côte d’Azur (French Riviera) most of which have been designed by renowned architects guaranteeing you a wide variety of playing pleasure and challenge.  But if you’re just starting out there are also plenty of courses suitable for beginners with English speaking pros on hand for lessons.

Now add to all this the rest of the reasons the Riviera is justly famous: outstanding regional gastronomy and wines, gorgeous beaches, festivals, architecture, perilous hilltop villages, markets, world-renowned art galleries, glamour, shopping, Nice Carnival, Monaco Grand Prix, (need I go on?) and you’ve got the makings of a very pleasurable “after golf” experience, all of which can be enjoyed to the full by any non golfers too.

And if you need any more reasons why Lou Messugo is the ideal place for your golfing vacation in the south of France, here are a few:

golf legsWe are French-speaking and can help with reservations, organise lessons, etc.  JF (husband) is a golfer himself and is happy to advise on courses and even play a round or two if you want a partner.  The gîte (apartment) is equipped with WiFi for booking online and researching which course to play at next.  There’s plenty of space to store your clubs in the garage, outdoor taps to clean your equipment and a washing machine, dryer and iron for looking your best on the fairway.  We have secure parking on site right outside your door.  The apartment is in a quiet residential area walking distance from a couple of excellent restaurants and only ten minutes’ drive to the lively town of Valbonne with a vast choice of cafés and restaurants.  But if you want to stay in after a hard day on the course our self catering facilities, BBQ and private terrace make a relaxing alternative.  And finally, what better way to wind down after a tiring day than a gentle swim in the pool followed by a massage from a local masseur who comes to the apartment?

Sounds ideal? It is!  Go on, book your holiday at Lou Messugo.
