Wine tasting, helicopter rides and Michelin-starred gastronomy: five star Terre Blanche on the Cote D’Azure is an incentive group’s heaven
When Sean Connery bought the estate in 1979, he wanted to build his dream golf course. His dream never came to fruition; lucky for incentive groups though, its next owner changed the landscape of Terre Blanche
to include two 18-holers – one of which can be booked for groups of 120.
Struck by the resemblance of the 750-acre estate to a Provençal hillside village, we’re taken straight to our villas (of which there are 115). If you’ve got your top performer staying then it’s the exclusive Terre Blanche Villa that’ll make them feel special: the 300sq m retreat comes complete with a private pool and jacuzzi.
You could stay on site for entertaining – a splash in the infinity pool and a massage at the spa deserve a day in themselves. Top of the roster of restaurants is Michelin-starred La Faventia. This is where contemporary gastronomy is done serious justice; the delicate blue lobster with Thai spices, and striking white chocolate ganache with cacao biscuit and Kriek (cherry) beer will remain with us for a while.
It’s offsite where you’ll find the wine. The hotel works with surrounding vineyards to create tour-and-tasting experiences for groups. Our favourite is Chateau d’ Esclans
, best known for its production of Whispering Angel rosé. Vineyard and winery tours are followed by tastings of the pink stuff as well as the estate’s other vintages. Got some thrill seekers to entertain? Get the TB team to organise a helicopter ride, buggy tours or glider experiences – that’ll soon sober them up.
