GARETH BALE looks set to be a happy man in Paris next week – because the stunning hotel Real Madrid have entirely booked out has its own golf course.
The Spanish giants ensured they will have a relaxing few days free from distraction ahead of the Champions League final on May 28.
They have reportedly hired the entire five-star, 7,800-hectare luxury complex for themselves.
Los Blancos players and staff are sure to be well looked after as they prepare to try and win a 14th European Cup.
Bale, 32, is fighting to be fit in time and make a rare appearance – what would be his last for the club before he is released in June.
However, should he fail in his comeback quest, the Welshman will surely drown his sorrows on the greens of the private 18 holes.
Bale famously angered Real supporters by celebrating qualification for Euro 2020 with the ‘Wales, Golf, Madrid – in that order’ flag.
The Auberge du Jeu de Paume next to the Chateau de Chantilly, approximately 30 miles north of Paris and a 40-minute drive to the Stade de France.
There are 92 18th-Century French-style rooms in the beautiful hotel set in stunning countryside, part of the estate that belonged to the Duke of Aumale.
The most expensive is the £2,500-a-night Presidential Suite – a 200 sqm double room featuring separate living and dining rooms, a marble bathroom, a walk-in wardrobe and stunning views.

But none of them are available for the nights of Thursday 26, Friday 27 or Saturday 28 when it is understood Real will be in town.
Carlo Ancelotti’s squad will therefore have unlimited and exclusive access to the swimming pool, spa with massages, sauna, Turkish bath and state-of-the-art gym.
Ancelotti has his choice of five conference rooms all kitted out with the latest tech to deliver his pre-match meetings ahead of the crunch clash against Jurgen Klopp’s Reds – although his superiors, the Real directors and president Florentino Perez, are going to stay in central Paris.
The Italian and his players won’t go hungry either with the award-warning La Table du Connetable and traditional Le Jardin d’Hiver restaurants on site.
A range of other activities are also on offer including mountain biking, tennis, hunting and a visit to the Chateau de Chantilly and surrounding gardens.
Karim Benzema and Co may even get on horseback and try out the equestrian centre and polo if their boss allows – although Bale and Eden Hazard will no doubt be barred for fear of getting hurt… if a horse breathes heavily on the injury-prone pair.
