Around the castle
Summer is obviously the best time to stay at the castle. Lots of sun, nice temperatures, 12 hectares entirely for yourself, with a private swimming pool, soccer pitch, trampoline, swing, hammocks, outdoor tables and plenty of room for a game of ‘pétanque’, badminton or with a book in the shade.
You will not be bored around the castle. In summer the swimming pool is of course the big draw: recently renovated and provided with a wide walk-in staircase, with total privacy due to the high laurel hedge and a beautiful view over the valley in front of the castle.
The terrain is large enough (12 hectares) to put up your hammock in various places or to lie under a tree in a garden chair with a book. Next to the swimming pool is a trampoline with safety net, there is a swing, a soccer pitch, and two go-karts especially for the children. In the garden in front of the castle a fire pit has been built for campfires (BBQ is available). There is enough space around the castle for jeu de boules (or as the French say ‘pétanque’) and other games.
Our fruit trees, apples, cherries and plums are there to pick and eat. There are also some walnut trees.
This is the beautiful view of the Têches Valley as seen from the dining tables in the front garden. A wonderful place for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
And this is the balcony with a view, on the first floor at the front of the castle.
In the fire pit on the front lawn of the castle you can make nice campfires.
