Best Golf Property for Sale in France - 2019

A selection of ten of the best golf properties on the market in France in 2018

Golf property in France

France built the very first golf course in Europe, in the south-west of France near Pau (Pau Property Guide). And now, of the top 100 golf courses in Europe, over 25 are in France. So if you're thinking of buying a property abroad and you like golf, then France should be on your list. There are some fabulous properties currently on the market on or near to golf courses, and we have picked the best of them.

2019 - a good time to buy French property

And as a result of the economic gloom of recent years, 2019 offers a prime chance to find bargain properties. Many sellers have reduced prices, as they have done with a few of the properties below.

Best place to play golf could be France

France's warmer, sunnier climate is perfect for golf (Weather in France), with the courses being located in beautiful areas (with over 40 in Brittany alone). And France's celebrated food and wine make the ideal end to a day's golf.

French golf property - find the perfect one for you

For some, the ease of living on a golf development in a purpose built, modern apartment fulfils the dream. You can now find properties actually on these developments with just a short stroll to the first tee. For others, an older, character residence set within minutes of a course is a more appealing option. Luckily, France offers something for all tastes and purposes.

Golf property in France can earn you income

As golf is so popular, you could also bring in a useful income from renting out your property when not using it yourself. Or find the right property and create your own golf development!

Where to play golf in France

Choosing the right region can be important. If warmth and sunshine are paramount, the Languedoc is a great region to head for to enjoy all year round golf (Property for Golf Lovers in Languedoc). The region has more than 14 courses, most of which have been built in the last 25 years. While golfers enjoy the courses in Carcassonne (Carcassonne Property Guide), Béziers (Béziers Property Guide) and around the region, non-golfing members of the family can explore historic cities, visit Cathar castles and discover the vineyards and wines (Languedoc wine - to be savoured and enjoyed).

Golf by the sea - perfect for non-golfers too

Courses close to the sea can be found in Brittany (Brittany Property Guide), and also all down the Atlantic coast (The French Atlantic Coast from Biarritz to Southern Brittany). This gives plenty of chances for non-golfers (especially families with children) to have an enjoyable holiday.

Summer golf in France

Summer time is golfing time in the mountain resorts once the snow has melted (Best Alpine Villages in Summer). A ski cupboard in your chalet makes a good home for the golf clubs in the summer season. Chamonix (Chamonix Property Guide), for example, is a well known ski resort with an almost equally good reputation for golf.

French golf property - easy access is vital for some

Most parts of the country are easily accessible from the UK, by air, sea, rail or land (French Connections). Golfers seeking property to use mainly for short breaks may prefer to stay in the north of the country, as you can sling your clubs in the boot along with your weekend bag and just drive onto the ferry or tunnel train. The south has (almost) all year round sunshine and warmth, but the trade off is that flying with golf clubs can be a hassle.

Keen golfers - now is the time!

So if you are a keen golfer with an eye for property, what are you waiting for? 2019 is the right time to combine your passions with a golf property in France. Just take a look at what we have to offer:
