This chateau with private pool and tennis court was rebuilt in the 19th century on the site of the ancient residence of the Seigneur of Dougnes. During the 1990s it 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 dur 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.Food and wine is central to the way of life in this region. There are numerous small towns and villages to explore where you can sample local cuisine or visit castles, churches, museums and outdoor markets. Nearby Chalais is a lovely, bustling town with a direct rail link to Bordeaux and an excellent local market on Monday mornings.
