The 14.5m x 6m pool is heated, fully walled with a double-locked entry gate for security, and is set in the chateau's 5 acres of private grounds. Surrounded with sun beds and a terrace to lounge on, it slopes gently from a depth of 1 metre at the shallow end to a full 2 metres at the deep end, so it works well for sun-worshippers just wanting a quick paddle to cool off, or exercise hounds who just love doing lengths.
There are four salons all for your private use. One with a bar, one with a baby grand piano, and all opening onto the garden terrace with its tables and parasols and views of the manicured formal gardens with mature trees and lines of yew.
The trendy, spacious and professionally equipped kitchen maintains its warmth and style with extensive use of wooden surfaces, modern artwork, ancient doors used as wall hangings and fabulous moody lighting. With two ovens, gas range, three work-stations and all the utensils and equipment you need to create your own Masterchef winner, the kitchen is hugely popular with guests who enjoy cooking and want a space to express their creativity.
When all that fun and food gets too much, you can relax in one of the nine big bedrooms. Each one carefully designed with individuality and flair, they are extensively equipped with flat screen TV, DVD player and tea and coffee making facilities - some even have wine chillers.
And then there are the bathrooms. And what bathrooms they are. Big, luxurious, decadent. Some with two tubs, some incorporating the Chateau's turrets, all great places to unwind. And they come fully equipped with both bath and pool towels, bathing products, hair dryers, even our own fluffy Chateau Bathrobes.
