The beautiful Dordogne Valley has long been a favourite destination for the British when holidaying in France, and golfers can enjoy unbeatable value on stay-and-play breaks at Souillac Golf & Country Club in 2018.
Couples, groups and families can take advantage of amazing savings when they book a three, five or seven-night stay at the picturesque resort from April to the end of October, with three-night, three-round half-board packages starting from only €309 per person.
Bookable now, the attractive breaks feature golf on Souillac’s 18-hole course – regarded as one of the best in the south-west region – and accommodation in one of the resort’s spacious and well-equipped two, three and four-bedroom lodges, located in nine hamlets with each benefitting from its own swimming pool.
Daily lunch or dinner in the resort’s bar and brasserie ‘Restaurant du Golf’ is also included along with the option to check-in on any day of the week. Away from the fairways, guests can enjoy complimentary access to Souillac’s wide variety of other sports and leisure facilities including a driving range, nine swimming pools, tennis, table tennis, boules and a children’s play area.
The packages – which are based on four people sharing – are even more enticing for golfers looking to book a longer stay, with seven-night half-board breaks including unlimited golf on offer from just €485 per person.
And getting to Souillac couldn’t be easier with the resort situated within close reach of five airports – including Brive, just a 15-minute drive away – as well as being easily accessed by the motorway straight from Calais.
Set in the heart of the beautiful Dordogne Valley in 60 hectares of magnificent countryside, Souillac Golf & Country Club is the ideal base to combine a relaxing golfing break with the opportunity to discover the many historic, cultural and gastronomic delights of the region.
Designed by acclaimed architect Jeremy Pern, the resort’s 18-hole, par-67 golf course lies in the middle of an oak forest and offers variety and a number of challenges as well as breathtaking views, with the emphasis on accuracy rather than length off the tee.
As well as golf, hiking, kayaking, climbing, mountain-biking and horse-riding are just some of the activities that can be enjoyed nearby, while Souillac provides the gateway for visitors to discover some of the Dordogne Valley’s other delights including pre-historic caves, medieval chateaux and its world-famous foie gras, cheeses and wines.
