    The journey and how you get there

    Expressions Holidays includes a scheduled flight from London Heathrow to Nice with British Airways but we can book charter flights and no frills airlines if those are more suitable for your departure airport. Though we would recommend hiring a car for the duration of your holiday, due to the abundance of stunning scenic and cultural sights just on your doorstep, there are a few other options to consider:
    You may prefer to initially arrive at Terre Blanche via private transfer, which takes around 45 minutes. Through the hotel concierge, it is possible to hire a car at a later date for a few days or a week of your stay.
    Alternatively, take advantage of the reasonable helicopter rates when thinking about booking your transfers. Helicopters in France are not that much more expensive than a transfer and can take you out to the coast on your way, passing over the offshore islands before heading to the Terre Blanche's own helipad.

    Complimentary

    Bed and breakfast package includes full access to Spa, indoor swimming pool and fitness centre.

    Included in your holiday

    Expressions Holidays includes scheduled flights with British Airways London to Nice, hire of a group I car (Renault Espace or similar) and bed and breakfast.

    Our opinion

    Terre Blanche Hotel and Spa Resort has a well-deserved reputation for offering extremely luxurious and spacious accommodation as well as top of the range sports and leisure facilities. A beautiful hotel in a glorious location.

    Hotel description

    The elegant five star Terre Blanche Hotel and Spa Resort, a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, lies in a secluded area of Provence just outside the quaint village of Fayence between St Tropez and Monaco. The estate itself, abundant in green lawns and clusters of blooming trees, is larger than the principality of Monaco itself, making this the perfect option for couples, families, and groups of friends who relish a sense of privacy. With stunning views over hills and villages to the mountains of the Alpes Maritimes, the resort has 115 generously sized suites in villa-cottage style buildings linked together by pretty, secluded walkways.

    As the estate is car-free, the grounds are kept exceptionally quiet and exceptionally safe, with only the occasional passing hotel buggy to take you back to your private room. Each suite at the Terre Blanche Resort is decorated with brightly coloured rugs and striking, contemporary Provençal artworks. Terracotta floors and a soothing, neutral colour palette invokes the traditional feeling of Provence. All rooms have a living room area with sofa bed, and French doors that open onto a private terrace where delightful views of the valley, mountains, and villages beyond can be appreciated. Here, guests can enjoy a private breakfast, lunch, or dinner at no extra charge. Some suites can be connected with a one-bedroom villa to the side, or an upstairs with private entrance, making this an ideal option for spacious family and group accommodation. The gastronomic restaurant at the Terre Blanche Resort, Le Faventia, is situated on a hilltop position and boasts glorious views over the villages of Callian and Montauroux. Using fresh local ingredients, cuisine served here is very Mediterranean, inspired by the region's culinary heritage, and expertly cooked and prepared by a double-Michelin-starred chef.  Guests can also dine at Le Gaudina, a cosy dining terrace where creative food is accompanied by art and music, or at Les Caroubiers, overlooking the golf course. 

    At the 3,200 square metre spa and fitness centre guests can enjoy massages and beauty treatments. The spa has 15 treatment rooms, housed in a building surrounded by lavender and designed in the same elegant style as the main hotel building. Biomech equipment here attracts famous athletes from across the world who are looking to improve their technique, and can be utilised by hotel guests who would like to hone their golf or tennis swing. Two 18-hole golf courses designed by Dave Thomas offer some of the best year-round golfing in Europe. One of these golf courses recently hosted the Golf World Championship, and is recognised as one of the top 15 golf courses in the world; thus, we highly recommend the Terre Blanche Hotel to avid golfers. Those less interested in golf need not be worried about the imposition of the two courses and the Club House. The courses sit at the very bottom of the resort, away from the cottages, and almost entirely out of view. The sections of the green visible from the main resort blend perfectly into the Provence landscape, however, with their rolling plains and blue pools.

    Other activities at the Terre Blanche Resort that guests can enjoy include cooking courses and wine-tasting, while the countryside of Provence provides the perfect setting for hiking, mountain biking, and horse-riding. The outdoor infinity pool sits like a lake in the centre of the resort, with an extensive pool deck and a whirlpool. Below the edge of the pool, partially hidden by verdant trees and plants, there is a children's pool.

    The lake beside the resort is available for water sports for guests of all ages, as are dirt buggy rides through the countryside.

    Children are more than welcome at the Terre Blanche. To one side of the resort, out of the way of the main areas used by couples, there is a children's club. A variety of games and excursions are available, most of which are included in the room rate. Beside the pool restaurant. Le Tousco, there is a replica, but in miniature, specially designed to give your little ones the experience of grown-up dining, but with a specially crafted menu and toys at the tables.

    With such a wide range of activities, families and groups can find something to appeal to each and every member, allowing Mum and Dad to enjoy the spa and golf course respectively, while the children partake in crafts or sporting activities at the children's club. The Terre Blanche Hotel and Spa Resort lends itself to long stays for families and couples with superb facilities for all to enjoy.
