Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort (formerly the Four Seasons Resort Provence) is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, set in the large private estate of Domaine de Terre Blanche. Within easy reach of the beautiful Cote d'Azur, the cosmopolitan city of Nice and glamour spots of St Tropez and Antibes, it's also surrounded by historic market towns and villages, where a wander around a local market should not be missed. Perfect for a long weekend, there's also enough here to keep even the most active of families busy.

The design and layout of the estate make Terre Blanche feel more like a village than a resort and the 114 suites and villas which surround the hotel offer privacy and tranquillity. The pavilions that house the suites have been sympathetically designed with local stone and terracotta tiles so that they blend in with the Provencal landscape. The views of the mountains to the North and of the villages of Callian, Tourettes and Fayence are nothing short of spectacular and the domaine itself feels wonderfully natural. Olives, mimosas, oleanders, rosemary, lavenders, pink laurels, cypress and pine create a heady blend of scents and a multitude of sculptures enriches the natural beauty of the estate.

Whether it's gourmet dining, sport or relaxation, we love the choice on offer at Terre Blanche. A total of four restaurants offer everything from fine French gastronomy, where the food and wines are immaculately paired, to more informal and casual dining. The two championship golf courses and David Leadbetter Golf Academy, will keep the keenest golfer happy, whilst the enormous Spa, with it 20m indoor pool, fitness center and 14 treatment rooms, is totally sublime. The hotel has a four heated pools, including an outdoor infinity pool with exceptional views across the valley, and there are two floodlit tennis courts.

Terre Blanche has a very well run kids club, taking children from two to 12 years. Close to the tennis courts and golf driving range, it has its own heated pool and lots of space in which to have fun. A range of sporting, artistic and musical activities keep children entertained, and there are plenty of opportunities to explore the grounds. Lunches are taken at Pitchoun with a delicious range of healthy buffet dishes from which to choose.


Terre Blanche has a variety of suite and villa accommodation ranging from 60m2 suites to the remarkable Villa Terre Blanche with its private swimming pool and Jacuzzi. All accommodation is traditionally Provencal in style and simply but tastefully decorated.

The suites, many of which are interconnecting, are similarly styled and sized, but differentiated by their level of privacy and views. All are around 60m2 and have a spacious bedroom, sitting room and private terrace. All have free wifi and Nespresso machines. Bathrooms are generous with separate showers, bathtubs and double washbasins.

The Deluxe and Premier one bedroom villas are 100m2 and have indoor and outdoor dining, spacious living areas and private terraces.

For families and groups wanting multiple bedrooms, the Méditerranée, Provence, Esterel and Terre Blanche Villas offer additional space and private swimming pools and/or Jacuzzis. You can also request two suites that can be accessed by one door offering an interconnecting option.


There is a complimentary programme for children aged 2-12 years and the exclusive children's club villa is well equipped with three separate rooms, shaded outdoor space and a private, shallow (fenced) children’s pool.

Open from 09.30 - 17.30, but closed between 12.00 - 13.30 (from the beginning of April to the beginning of November).

Child-size bathrobes, complimentary babies’ and children’s toiletries are provided and children’s menus are available and babysitting can be provided. High chairs, bottles and bottle warmers can be supplied free of charge as well as cots.


Showcasing contemporary Mediterranean cuisine with Provençal influences, Faventia is the gastronomic option where guests may dine indoors, or al fresco on the shaded terrace. The Gaudina Lounge is airy yet intimate and offers lighter meals for lunch and dinner. Tousco Grill, found adjacent to the outdoor pool, is open for shaded lunches and snacks, while The Clubhouse is open to golfers and resort residents overlooking the 18th green of one of the two golf courses. In the spa you will also find the Infusion Cafe where light and healthy dishes are served.

New for 2014 is Pitchoune, the new Kids Restaurant. It will open in June and will be located next to the Tousco (main swimming pool).

The golf facilities are particularly impressive. Both courses were designed by Dave Thomas and Le Chateau is particularly highly rated while Le Riou is reserved for members and hotel guests only. The David Leadbetter Academy is a large training centre with Biomecaswing swing analysis, custom fitting of shoes and clubs in partnership with Taylormade and the 5 pros are on hand to help you work on your game.

Other facilities include a 40m heated outdoor swimming pool with multi level sun-deck, whirlpool, children’s play pool, two floodlit tennis courts with a tennis pro on request, state of the art gym and a 3,200m² spa with indoor pool (children can use this pool after 2.30pm). There is also 24 hour room service, valet parking and an in-room safe.


The hotel is in a perfect location to explore the surrounding region. The local villages such as Tourettes and Callian, some perched on the cliff edges, have delightful markets, restaurants and shops and in Grasse which is famous for perfume, it is possible to create your own scent.

A highlight for modern art lovers is the Fondation Maeght at St Paul de Vence. The beaches and spectacular coastline of the Cote d'Azur are easily accessible and the more adventurous can spend the day exploring the beautiful Gorges du Verdon.

Terre Blanche has a selection of buggies that can be taken and used for exploring the estate, as well as some of the local villages.

When to travel

Provence enjoys a pleasant, Mediterranean climate. On average, Provence gets 300 days of sunshine each year, with warm but mild temperatures. Summer is high season here, with August bringing the hottest weather and the biggest crowds. Spring is a great time of year, the weather is warm, with temperatures swaying between 16 and 20°C, and the crowds are small. If you want to see lavender fields then it would be best to visit the region in June. In October the weather starts to cool. Autumn is also the start of the wettest weeks of the year. October sees an average of 3.7 inches of rain, with an average of three inches following in November. Still, it never gets all that chilly and snow is rare. In January, the mercury rarely dips beneath the -1°C.
