GARDENS & TERRACES
Most properties at Château Les Carrasses have a private garden or terrace with sun loungers, dining areas and barbeques. The surrounding estate offers 10 acres of well-tended gardens, as well as vineyards and woodland crossed with walking and bike trails.
THE MAIN POOL
The magnificent infinity pool (20m x 8m), heated from April to October features massage jets and an inviting submerged beach area for lounging. Poolside service is available throughout the summer.
BARBECUE & BOULES
To the west of the estate is this lovely social spot – a large barbecue station with tables and chairs and all the equipment needed for an easy cook out. Beside the barbecue area are two boules courts, where you’re free to while away a couple of lazy hours.
In the main courtyard is a magnificent conservatory, La Serre, rumoured to have been designed by Gustave Eiffel. This lovely structure houses comfortable chairs and a take one / leave one library, making it an ideal place to relax.
TENNIS & VOLLEYBALL
Neatly bordered by cypress trees, our championship-size clay court can be floodlit in the evenings. The beach-volleyball court next door is great for a fun workout in the sunshine. All the equipment you need for a game is provided free of charge.
The countryside around the Château is perfect for exploration on two wheels, and we have plenty of complimentary bicycles for guests’ use, together with useful route maps.
SALON & BOUTIQUE
The salon is the heart of communal life at the Château. Once the store for the harvested grapes, the salon now houses the reception, lounge and Brasserie dining room, as well as a small boutique which stocks delicious local artisan products.
If you’d like to keep in touch with the outside world, we offer free broadband Wi-Fi in all our properties and in the communal areas.
SOUND & VISION
All of our holiday residences are equipped with a Bose sound dock. We also have iPods pre-loaded with selected playlists, compiled by specialists AudioSushi. Each property has at least one TV and DVD player, with a wide range of French and English channels.
