Six Senses Loire Valley will launch in the French village of Saint-Laurent-Nouan in 2022.
Developed to embrace the environmental and community values that are core to Six Senses, the resort sits within the Les Bordes Estate, a 1,400-acre site in the Sologne forest, home to Les Bordes Golf Club.
The development will incorporate equestrian and tennis centres, an organic farm, an art gallery, a petting farm, a natural swimming lake with beach, water sports, biking and walking trails. Hotel guests will have access to the new 18-hole Gil Hanse-designed par three golf course and a new state-of-the-art golf practice facility.
Guests arriving at Six Senses Loire Valley will be welcomed at a beautifully preserved château surrounded by manicured lawns with sculptures and water features designed to enhance personal reconnection.
There will be 88 guest suites and villas clustered in the woodland landscape and built alongside streams and waterways, in addition to 70 residential villas for private ownership.
“We feel really fortunate to be collaborating with RoundShield Partners on a very unique project which will give a new dynamic to this world-famous destination and complement our existing and upcoming resorts in Europe,” says Bernhard Bohnenberger, President of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas.
“Six Senses Loire Valley is being designed with our sustainability values at its heart and will appeal to experience seekers, nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts looking to get up close with this region’s exceptional beauty, culture and history.”
