Paris is the venue of this autumn’s 2018 Ryder Cup, golf’s famous biennial competition that sees Europe take on the US. France may not have the same status as a golf home destination as Spain or Portugal’s Algarve. However, exclusivity means fewer crowds! Here’s a taste of fine French homes within or next to a world-class golf resort…
