Nestled within 74 hectares of stunning natural beauty, located between La Dombes, land of a thousand meres, and Bugey, home to the renowned gastronome Brillat Savarin, La Sorelle is just 40 minutes from Lyon. It was designed in 1990, drawing inspiration from Scottish golf clubs.
La Sorelle boasts an 18-hole course with plenty of history – not to mention natural beauty – with vales, forests and meres, amid ancient vegetation of 300-year-old oaks. Accuracy and delicacy are a must to tame its sloping greens!
La Sorelle Golf Resort, set within a magnificent 15th Century mansion, has been stylishly renovated to include a cosy 3* hotel and a semi-gourmet restaurant. La Sorelle truly has an irresistible charm!
