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 has undergone 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 a heated 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 heliport and whisk you 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.
Food and wine is central to the way of life in this region. There are numerous small towns and villages to explore and sample local cuisine or visit ancient castles, churches, museums and lots of outdoor markets.
This chateau with private pool has many facilities including tennis court and heated indoor/outdoor pool.
