There’s a refreshing allure that dances amidst the verdant stretches of the majestic Sologne forest. Nestled within this symphony of nature is Les Bordes Estate, 1,400 acres of pristine land, historically revered as one of the world’s most private and luxurious communities. Les Bordes is also the home of Six Senses, which has unveiled its foray into France with a five-star hotel designed to redefine opulence.
Cour du Baron is a convivial collection of single-family residences offering the social charm of an idyllic European village. Each home is a nature-inspired haven tucked amidst the surrounding Sologne forest, offering cosy privacy, airy open-concept interiors, and lush landscaping with resort-style pools for most.
Owning a residence at Cour du Baron unlocks a world of outdoor adventure, due to its location on the spectacular Les Bordes Estate—a picturesque and activated destination for every member of the family—where woodland fauna, ancient trees, open meadows and natural lakes set the backdrop to a globally renowned golf club and spirited village square, as well as a future Six Senses Hotel & Spa.
These homes, ranging from a spacious 2,500 square feet to an expansive 7,100 square feet, are erected on plots of up to 1.72 acres. Their design exudes a modern elegance, complemented by amenities that only a brand like Six Senses can offer. Imagine the convenience of having 24-hour security, top-notch concierge services, dedicated housekeeping, and even childcare – all within the cocoon of your private residence.
At the core of the Six Senses experience are 50 impeccably designed suites and guestrooms, orchestrated to echo French elegance. Not to be outshone, the historic 19th-century Château de Bel Air adds a layer of grandeur, housing suites of unparalleled sophistication, an urbane lounge bar, and a gourmet restaurant that sings a culinary ode to France.
Wellness aficionados will be drawn to the sprawling 18,000-square-foot Six Senses Spa. Beyond the traditional offerings of a sauna and hammam, the spa raises the bar with an indoor swimming pool, vitality pool, a cutting-edge gym, and a holistic yoga studio. The idea is to blend luxury with well-being seamlessly, resonating with Six Senses’ overarching ethos of holistic wellness.
Golf lovers have a unique lure: an exclusive membership to Les Bordes Golf Club. The property’s golf courses—including the 18-hole New Course, 10-hole Wild Piglet, and the iconic Old Course from the 1980s—are a mecca for enthusiasts. The Clubhouse, reimagined by Michaelis Boyd, adds a narrative of its own with a cozy lounge, bar, and a restaurant helmed by renowned Executive Chef Jérôme Voltat.
The estate is not just about individual experiences; it’s designed to be a community. Family-friendly activities abound, from an equestrian center and fishing lakes to go-karting and ziplining. The future promises a dedicated Kids’ club, a revamped tennis clubhouse, and even a sensory vegetable garden. Le Village, a lakeside piazza teeming with a farmer’s market, bakery, art gallery, and amphitheater, is envisioned to be the community’s social fulcrum.
For those who see this as more than just a getaway, the villas offer a dual benefit. They serve as primary residences for some and as lucrative investment opportunities for others, integrating into the hotel’s accommodation portfolio when unoccupied, and generating revenue for homeowners.
Six Senses’ French chapter is a finely-tuned composition of luxury, wellness, community, and sustainability—each note hitting a pitch of perfection to create a symphony that’s uniquely Les Bordes.
