General Description

Stunning Chateau with swimming pools - Ideally situated near the villages of Chalais and charming Aubeterre-sur-Drone, this chateau with private pool and tennis court was rebuilt in the 19th century during the 1990s underwent complete restoration and refurbishment. Despite its proportions it has a cosy feel, the charming pepperpot towers adding character to the pretty façade. The facilities at the chateau are superb, with an indoor/outdoor pool, ' plexipave' tennis court, and fitness room on site. Golfers can enjoy the excitement of ' heli-golfing': a private helicopter can pick you up from the chateau' s own helipad and whisk you off to one of a number of selected golf courses in the Bordeaux/Cognac region. The surrounding countryside offers endless opportunities for running, hiking and cycling, whilst local rivers, streams and lakes offer fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and even a small lakeside beach. The chateau is only a ten-minute drive from Aubeterre-sur-Drone, classed as one of France's most beautiful villages, and which offers a river beach with restaurant and a canoeing centre, as well as other restaurants and cafes in the pretty square.
