The chateau is located on the top of a hill with it's 15 hectares surrounding it. The formal entrance drive is gated and the tarmac drive sweeps up through the trees to a sizeable parking area to the rear of the chateau. The views over the park with its selection of mature trees and on to the valley beyond are splendid and it is difficult to imagine its proximity to the centre of Tours.
Located discreetly to the rear of the chateau at the end of one of the tree lined alleys is the pool area, with terrace and pool.
There are several paths within the park permitting the owner and guests alike to wander and relax. The chateau is on the edge of a village but remains private and secluded with no overseeing properties.
