Next to the summer house is the stone barbecue inviting poolside lunch parties and aperitifs during long summer evenings…a real heavenly corner !

Leisure activities

mercurey 2012 034

We have tried to think of everything to keep the young and old amused all year round !

The swimming pool

The pool, which is 5mx10m, is heated. It is open 1st April until 31 October. The shallow end is 1 metre deep and goes down to around 1.90m.
Spend hot afternoons lazing around the pool on one of the sunloungers…while the summer house and garden table and chairs invite you to have lunch by the pool or dine outside on balmy summer evenings.
Our maintenance staff will call by during your stay to ensure the upkeep of the pool and the terrace.
(*The swimming-pool heating system is an areothermal heat pomp, the most used system for heating an outside pool). The pomp uses calories in the air to  heat the water of the pool circulating in the pump, therefore, we cannot garantee that the pool will be at 28°C if the temperature of the air is below 12°C.)

A gym is available for your use in the basement of the Château. It is equipped with two exercise bikes, a rowing machine, a weights machine, dumbars and mats. Relax afterwards in the armchairs, take a drink or have a game of table football.
