If you're on the hunt for the ultimate all-singing, all-dancing hen-do haven, or pre-wedding weekend getaway with your 'maids, we have just the place.

MORE HEN DO IDEAS

La Bergerie, is a private staffed villa not far from the little French village of Fayence, just 40 minutes from Nice. It's a recent addition to Terre Blanche Golf Resort - the hotel renowned for its golfing holidays and sensational spa.

The villa itself is absolute picture-postcard-perfection - think dove grey shutters and pristine stone, all set amongst the prettiest landscaped lawns with dizzying views of Provence's glorious countryside. 

BRIDES BITE BACK: OUR FAVOURITE WEDDING HORROR STORIES

From the outside it's impressive and vast, but inside it's elegant and refined with immaculate interiors and sky-high ceilings. Four of the six bedrooms are bright and dazzling with huge glass doors and private balconies. Every single nook and cranny has been tastefully designed and flawlessly executed - think scrubbed oak floors, walls adorned with modern art, a smattering of plush fabrics and carefully placed eclectic antiques.

At La Bergerie it feels like you are in possession of the whole super-swish place even though you're not.

It's the best of both worlds - all the luxe and perks of a five-star hotel without the pesky public. While you relax, the friendliest staff are discreetly beavering away behind closed doors, emerging to serve you hand-rolled sushi to snack on and homemade lemonade to sup between dips in the vast black, shimmering pool.

FINDING 'THE ONE'

Dinner is a true feast of locally cured meats, goat's cheese, fig and balsamic crostini, followed by coconut cod goujons with sweet chilli jam and topped off with lashings of luscious chocolate mousse.

If you do dare to steal yourself away, there's plenty to do - whether its mountain biking, wine tasting or horse riding - the wonderful staff will make it happen, just like that. But really the thing to do is while away each sun-soaked day, glass of rose in hand. Pure A-list bliss.
