CAPTION: This picture is taken from the top of Mount Cheiron, rising behind Le Foulon from 550 metres to almost 1800. Look carefully at the horizon - that long dark mass is the island of Corsica, 240kms away, and in the foreground is Nice Airport. If you drive to Greolieres les Neiges (15-20 mins) then you are rewarded with this view after just 1 hours hike, or come to ski and get there by chair lift.

activities

AS RELAXED, OR AS MANIC AS YOU LIKE

There is such a variety of sporting activities to be enjoyed around here it's difficult to keep up. From World class paragliding, to category one rock climbs, a view of the Med' from astride a horse to pristine Golf courses that rival any other on the globe.

Golf

 

There are 7 top class 18 hole golf courses little more than half an hours drive from Le Foulon. Heading towards the coast the courses like the Royal Mougins and the Opio Golf Club offer immaculately cared for greens in very pretty surroundings. A little further afield is the Monte Carlo Golf Club, but if you want good value, amazing scenery and few other golfers to get in your way then the Gary Player designed course at the Chateau Taulane is the best bet.

Paragliding

Not only is Gréolières a great site for the experienced pilot, it is also totally accessible by the novice. But that's just within sight of the hotel grounds (when on a busy day you can see a spread of brightly coloured sails set against the mountain and blue sky beyond) and between 15 minutes and just over an hour's drive there are a further 6 top class sites, including the stunningly neautiful Gourdon.

Horse Riding

Horse Rider
15 minutes drive from Le Foulon are 3 stables offering treks on the mountains high above Vence and Tourettes sur Loup. With views down to the Mediterranean a thousand metres below it's a wonderful place to ride.

Motor Sport & the Route Napoleon

Being motor sport and classic car fans ourselves this was one more reason to move here. Great roads, great races and great history abound, and whether it's the glamour of the Monaco Grands Prix or the joy of pushing your own car on superb roads, you won't be disappointed.

Canyoning

The popular past time in the Gorge du Loup (5 minutes from Le Foulon) is called Canyoning; the sport of climbing into a wet suit and descending into the waters of the gorge and emerging the other end.

Climbing

There are several great climbs in the area and the French equip certain climbing routes with pitons and wire hand rails. Known as 'via ferrata' our nearest is just 5 minutes drive to Courmes, the next village down the gorge, and a short hike by footpath . There is equally good climbing to be found in Gourdon, 10 minutes drive away. We are currently seeking a partnership with local climbing guides to provide a deal for our guests.

Shopping!

Nice and Cannes have some very good shopping areas. There's a huge mall right next to the airport called Cap 3000 which is also quite good for clothes and the like, and is just a 5 minute stroll from some very good restaurants along the pedestrian seafront promenade of St Laurent du Var - a great spot for lunch.

However, I'm sure when you think of shopping in Provence most of you will conjur up images of local markets selling fresh produce, usually of the edible (and fattening) variety. There are so many of them that we've compiled a separate page for them all.

Ski Greolieres les Neiges

We have two ski resorts on our door-step. Flights to Nice are very cheap. If you want a day off the slopes the possibilities are endless, and if one of your group is a non-skier then they'll still have a superb holiday.

The best kept secret in the alps? We think so, please read on....
