European city of culture in 2015, Mons is a lovely and quite lively university city, and an excellent base for some great golf. There is plenty of WW1 history, breweries and a lovely main square.
Around 2 hours from arriving in France, following an easy fast-route drive, you can be on the golf course. 10-20 minutes from the city centre lie the local courses, others are slightly further away, but complement the 2 local parkland courses.
Our hotels have parking and you don’t need the car for your evening stroll to some great eateries, from simple brasseries to Michelin stars.
