Trip Summary

Golf WineDesigned for wine-loving golfers, our Bandol and Golf package is part of our Wine and Beyond range, offering customers the opportunity to combine a few of the finer things in life. The package is based at the unique Hotel Resort Dolce Frégate Provence, which boasts one of the most beautiful golf courses in Europe. As well as having plenty of time to make the most of your hotel’s incredible facilities, you will also be introduced to the famous rosé and white wines of Provence, and particularly to the specificities of the Bandol and Cassis appellations. This break will give you a taste of the authentic Provençal art de vivre!

On the morning of day two, enjoy a round of golf on the hotel’s 18-hole course. Your package includes the green fee as well as a buggy. The 6,210 m par 72 Frégate course was designed by American Golf Course Architect Ronald Fream at the heart of the Provençal vineyards, surrounding by pine trees and with 15 breath-taking view points across the Mediterranean Sea.
