We’re all familiar with the traditional golfing holidays… the fail-safe golf holidays in Spain, but have you ever considered French golf holidays? No? Here at the Old Forge French holiday rental, we’re not only blessed with beautiful surroundings and famous French red wines but we are also lucky to be close by to 3 excellent 18 hole golf courses.

When your planning your golfing breaks, whether your thinking about golf weekends or longer golfing holidays, within a short drive of the Gite you can be teeing off next to the River Yon or looking out over the Marina of Port Bourgenay, enjoying the spectacular western coast of France.

Accommodation at the Gite is flexible, so whether your looking for unusual golf presents such as a romantic golfing trip for two or if you would like a family break or French golf holidays with friends, the Gite sleeps up to 12 people in luxurious comfort accommodating all your needs.
