Le Domaine Du Gouverneur
DOMAINE DU GOUVERNEUR
A unique environment at the heart of Lyon's countryside
Nested in an authentic green setting, the medieval castle of the Breuil, former fiefdom of the Governor of La Dombes land, is the birthplace of the Domaine du Gouverneur. This vestige of the past alone, makes the domain a place full of character with multiple declensions.
A PRESERVED AND UNCONVENTIONAL PLACE
Well-endowed with the vastest golf area of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, with a cosy hotel and its elegant and spacious rooms, it also presents la Table du Gouverneur, a bistro-gourmet restaurant. This is equally a perfect environment for seminars and varied celebrations to those willing to turn such shared moments into unforgettable encounters.
Located 30 minutes far from Lyon, it for sure offers an idyllic setting not only to golf fans, but to nature lovers, wholeheartedly.
“In all things of nature there is something of the marvellous” Aristotle said. At the Domaine du Gouverneur, you will fully experience this. Let yourself come and see.
THE LOVE FOR A LAND AND A FAMILY STORY
New member of Les Collectionneurs
Since 1975, Les Collectionneurs has brought together travelers, restaurants and hotels owners who have a taste for travel. Their values are guided by curiosity, high standards and generosity, through unique establishments.
In 2021, Le Domaine du Gouverneur has the honor to join them and to be of sincerity and know-how.
The restaurant La Table du Gouverneur, meanwhile, has been awarded the title of "La Table Remarquable" by Les Collectionneurs, reflecting its unique, authentic and creative cuisine.
A family story
The domain is managed since 2019 by Laure Dalloz, and is determined to live in the 21st century up to environmental concerns, carried by an undeniable wind of modernity. It is now way far more than a renowned golf area, but a family story and not only the prerogative of sport lovers, but of nature and elegance.
One more star
The hotel of Domaine du Gouverneur, in full development, will acquire a fourth star in 2015, a guarantee of the quality of service implemented daily by the teams, and a real achievement following the major renovations undertaken during the last several years.
An enthusiastic lover of the region
When Jacques Dalloz, a passionate golf player and a Dombes land lover, acquires the domain in 1998, he already owns the Golf de La Bresse. He is fully aware of the privilege it is to account for such a heritage. Over the years he will, with his teams, be committed to preserving it, renovating it with care, and plainly respecting it.
This acquisition has positionned our two establishments as an must-see golf destination in the region with two different but complementary services and will propose its members a unique offer in France, with an illimited access to the three 18-hole courses.
Creation of a nature paradise
The Domaine du Gouverneur was created around a historic property, the Château du Breuil, former residence of the Governor of the Dombes region.
The Château and its farms dating from the Middle Ages have been carefully renovated to offer a setting steeped in history, while remaining anchored in the 21st century.
It is on this site that the 3-stars hotel at the time, the gastronomic restaurant "La Table d'Antigny" and the Golf du Gouverneur were created to become over the years the 4-stars establishment that we know today.
HARMONY WITH NATURE
This estate at the heart of La Dombes land, offers golfers a chance, in between swings, to come near a flora and fauna of an extraordinary variety, just as if they were here in a genuine natural reserve.
This privilege is the domain’s team to be given credit for, as they are continuously committed to preserving this unique environment, along with meeting expectations as to daily upkeeping of golf courses.
The Domaine du Gouverneur is in the process of being awarded the Silver label of Golf & Biodiversity, initiated by the French Golf Federation and the National Museum of Natural History.
