Safety and Accessibility

The swimming pool is alarmed, but not fenced, though the house and terraces are gated and so can be shut off from the pool.

As three hundred year old buildings, the chateau and gites have some uneven surfaces and high walls.  There are several steps up to the chateau entrances.

There are two lakes, and a pond, in the chateau park.
