The swimming pool
If you are looking to cool down and relax on hot days, then our well-tempered swimming pool is at your disposal. There is something for everyone, whether you just want to listen to the sound of the water while reading a good book or you want to glide along the entire 15 m length of the pool. The easy access makes it convenient to enjoy the refreshing water. And if you tire of the sun, make yourself comfortable in the tower of the Château and take a cool drink from the bar.
Relaxation is preceded by excitement, so challenge yourself, your friends, family or other guests to a tennis match. The plastic/sand surface makes it possible to play with all conventional sports and leisure shoes, it can be played on in any weather and is especially suitable for beginners. The course is situated a little off the beaten track of the Chateaus and as long as you don’t mind the occasional roe deer roaming by, you are completely undisturbed. If you have left your equipment at home, we will be happy to lend you our rackets and balls.
