The Swimming Pool
Our heated and secure swimming pool is open and functional from mid-end April and until mid-late October.
The swimming pool is heated with a heat pump, in summer the water temperature is 28°/ 29° C. Its size is 6 m x 12 m and the deep end is 2 m. Three steps run the full width of the pool allowing a comfortable, gradual access.
The swimming pool is surrounded by a tiled terrace of 100 m2 and hundreds of ornamental grasses that create a unique and serene space.
The swimming pool is accessible via a lockable door.
The barbecue is built in stone and brick with three levels for grilling.
The Playground is equipped with an outdoor Table Tennis, rackets and a Badminton area.
The large car park comfortably accommodates about twenty cars.
The grounds and the river.
The property is located in beautiful Touraine countryside, in the Maulne valley. The building is surrounded by garden, lawns, fields and hills and is away from busy roads and nearby neighbours. A crayfish and trout Maulne river crosses and bypasses the estate.
“The Maulne is a small river that has no history, like happy peoples and honest women.” the sentence that begins contemporary novel “La Lizardière” that Henri Vicomte de Bornier, wrote in 1883. Since his childhood, he spent a lot of time at Château de Marcilly, at his aunts, the Marquise de Rochemore and the Marquise d’Argens, and he had a lot of affection for our region.
We cannot describe our locality better than Henri de Bornier did in the same first chapter of his novel:
“… This corner of Touraine is almost unknown, and it is all the more charming. In autumn especially, when the sun, still ardent, but a little dimmed by the mild mists of Anjou, extends its golden arrows from the high moors of Chalonnes up to the green peaks of Château-la-Vallière, the landscape is admirable. The little river, the long valley, the green hills, barely separated by the miniature river, all this seems to be sleeping under a vault of rays…”
— To admire at will!
